Not sure if this is the correct thread to post this but, today I went to a LGS and found a really nice 152K with original mag and what appeared to be original sling and in very good condition. As I was looking over the rifle there was another customer talking to one of the owners. I pulled down the front of the forearm to look over the condition of the barrel and the other customer asked me if that was a rest. I said yes or you can hold it as a grip, he thought that was pretty cool as so did I. However when the first owner seen that he immediately told me that he could not sell that to me because in Illinois it was now considered an assault rifle and the other owner then chimed in and said he too didnt realize the gun did that and they would have to sell it online in another state. Its a 22 rifle made in the early 1950's as far as I know, has a 7 or 8 shot mag and its considered an assault rifle? I was ready to but this rifle and still will if anybody can figure out if I have a leg to stand here to go back to the owners with. If not, then its a very sad state of this union. Thanks for any help guys.
