Ar-15

i am new to this site. i am wondering about ar-15 laws. i am 18 years old and want to get into ar-15 shooting. does it have to be a hbar to be non-regulated. i see on smith and wesson they have compliant ar-15 that meet Maryland law standards with fixed stocks and no flash supressors and no mention of hbar. Does that mean the gun is regulated too? or do i have to find a gun with hbar on it?

You're young, move to a free state.

To answer your question, in .223, yes, it must be an HBAR if it uses an AR-15 lower to be not regulated.

Other options however include weapons that are not AR-15's.

AR-10
Kel-tec SU-16's
Bushmaster ACR
FN-SCAR 16
etc.

All not regulated.

"i see on smith and wesson they have compliant ar-15 that meet Maryland law standards with fixed stocks and no flash supressors and no mention of hbar."


Unfortunately, there is no universally accepted definition of what an "HBAR" really is... YMMV.

you can't buy a regulated firearm at 18, so you'll have to settle for a HBAR

If it doesn't have "HBAR" stamped on the barrel, it is regulated. MD compliant just means it comes with a 10 or 20 rd mag instead of 30. As suggested above, I'd look elsewhere just to avoid any gray area or confusion. My first .223 I got when I was 18 was a Ruger Mini-14. While it's not a tack driver, it is a fun reliable .223, and can be made every bit as tacti-cool as an AR; and by our goofy laws it's not regulated.

If you have to have one now just get a Colt or Bushmaster HBAR . The extra weight is barely noticeable and they will accept all the same accessories a regular profile barrel will .

I have 2 HBARs and one regulated . One shoots just as good as the other .
