Is th Colt SP1 still 100% legal to transfer in CT
« on: March 24, 2020, 01:18:20 PM »
Good afternoon everyone,  I thought I had posed this question a few days back but I can't find any trace of it.  I am looking at a 1971 Colt SP1.  I just want to make sure that rifle is 100% legal to transfer as a preban.  It does say AR-15 right on the side.  The seller keeps referencing something at the Giffords law center about laws from December 2019.  Is the Colt SP1 still good to go?  Thanks!

Yes - all SP1 are good to transfer.  They stopped manufacturing prior to the cutoff.

It really depends on exactly what the roll marking on the side of the gun say. If it does not match exactly the banned by name list it is good to go.

Joel, The rollmark on the side of the receiver says Colt AR-15   and then just above the serial says Model SP1.  The rollmark makes it tough and a grey area almost. Although the model is SP1.  All SP1's were manufactured prior to the 1994 ban.

I had no issues transferring one a few months ago.
