Potentially moving to MD

Hello all, it looks like I will unfortunately be moving to me within 1-2 years and I had a question for you all before I go ahead and ask the state police. I have a WII tavor sar with a 16 inch barrel, which is obviously banned in md currently, but I'm wondering if it would be khosher to replace the barrel with an 18in as the 18in tavor sar is not banned. Opinions? Link to the barrel with new bolt from IWI.

The issue for you is achieving a 29in OAL .

The usual solution has been to pin & weld a muzzle device of sufficient length to make length .

IWI's " Official Maryland Compliant " version has the 16.5in bbl, with permanent attatched 3.5in muzzle device for a 30in OAL .

When did you purchase it?

If purchased before 10/1/13, it is legal in MD.

Afterwards unfortunately

Alas I would be moving due to my significant other getting a job in MD and it being too far of a commute for her from NoVA. Also contemplating selling it and purchasing a cz805a1 pistol and carbine since those are not banned. I just hate to give up one of my favorite platforms because of the stupid overall length.

Did you buy it new or used? From a dealer or Face-to-Face transaction.

How long after 10/1/2013 did you purchase?

I advocate breaking NO laws.

Unless she makes a LOT of money, divorce her and stay away from Maryland! I was stuck in Maryland for over 50 years - it is a trap, RUN!

Keep in mind the likelihood that anyone ever hassles you over this rifle. How many times do you see the State Police checking over peopleís firearms to ensure they are all legal? Whoís to say you didnít purchase the firearm before 2013?

However the OAL f the 18in SAR being 27.625" a pinned and welded muzzle brake would not be too hard to get it to 29in

Donít move to MD, move to VA or PA and commute in while retaining your rights. Youíll regret moving to MD and giving up your freedoms.

Good luck in the move and I truly wish you the best. Misery loves company but if I could move I would . And I am never really sure why anyone would choose to move here on purpose .

I if had a choice to move would be to WVA
