198. thanks, and a follow-up
What is it about some of the features that have put it on the "banned" list?

I understand why a self-loading rifle with a detachable magazine would make law enforcement nervous. But I don't understand the reasons for
- handgrip that sticks out,
- muzzle brake attachment types,
- adjustable/foldable rifle stock (i can imagine the former being useful for adjusting to the build of a person, and the latter for storage)
- bayonet lug with no bayonet?

I'm not at all experienced with firearms but would really like to understand what's going on.
