So are preban lowers still worth a bit more nowadays since AWB is long gone? I have a DPMS preban lower that's got a 4 digit serial number on it and appears to have very very little use since it was mounted on a rifle that's thrown <200 rounds. I was just curious if it's value was same as, more, or less then the average mil spec lower.
Depends on location and person buying. for a lot of the country the whole preban post ban thing died with the sun set of the Assault weapon ban.
For any one in my state it is just a used lower in good condition. In another state with different laws it may fetch a higher price.
Since I live in one of those archaic states, I'd be interested in it if the price was reasonable.
new york, and a couple other states still have AWB bans of there own in affect. I have seen prebans sell for $350 to $600 range depending on condition, brand, and desire of the buyer to get it. I saw a add awhile back on another forum were someone was moving to Connecticut I believe, well, they were wanting to trade the newer model SBR for a preban receiver that they could register as a SBR in the new state.....even with a SBR they had to have the preban to have all the evil features.
In Minnesota if you do a private purchase with someone and they go shoot someone within one year of the sale your ass is on the hook also for the murder. The only way to transfer is through a dealer or FFL then the slate is wiped clean.
A lower just buy it self is concidered a firearm.
