    Hello all, So.....for an ar to be considered "featureless" it cant have a protruding grip, bayo lug, tele stock or ANY compensator on the barrel? I find this confusing because a browning BAR ("deer rifle") has a detachable magazine and the Boss compensator and its NYS legal? Saw several for...
  2. The AR-15
    Can anyone recommend someone to weld the compensator on a barrel? It can be in the Syracuse or Buffalo area. Trying to help my friend out. Thanks in advance!

    I just bought a new 5.45 upper for my AR that I bought in 2012. Does anyone know where I can have the comp muzzle break pinned and welded in the Saratoga area? I tried MTM but I haven't been able to reach them.
  4. The AR-15
    I'm considering putting a BCM Gunfighter compensator on my AR build. Can anyone tell me if this compensator would be NY pre SAFE act compliant? I can't find any information to determine what is and what isn't legal to install. One gun shop told me "if you can't stick your finger in it, it is...
  5. The AR-15
    Anyone have one on their AR? Wanted to hear your opinions. I have a brand new BC 1.5 but now I'm kinda interested in the BCM.... BCMGUNFIGHTER Compensator MOD 1 - 5.56
  6. The AR-15
    is it legal? The only piece that concerns me is that fact that it can be "stacked" which I'm guessing means another compensator can be screwed into it. Does anyone run one of these or think it would or would not be legal in NY? I gave the manufacturer a call just now, but had to leave a...

    ~ needs a compensator any suggestions? Romanian STG 2000-c

    So I currently have an SJC Titan muzzle comp on my AR. Great for 3 gun, not so much for taking squirrels and coyotes. So I had an idea to machine a cylinder that would very tightly slide over the brake, and have an O ring on each end to stop any gasses from escaping the holes. Would this be...
  9. The AR-15
    I'm currently running the Stag Comp muzzle break on my AR-15. It came with the barrel assembly, and I don't have any issues with it. I am, however, wondering if it's worthwhile to go to a higher-end compensator. I'm looking at one from Spike's Tactical; Spike's Tactical Dynacomp Extreme (5.56)...

    Wondering if this is legal. It seems to be more of a brake than anything else but it does say it suppresses some fire. The site doesn't say anything about not shipping to NY. AR-15/M16 BATTLECOMP - Brownells Thanks, -Z

    I was thinking about taking my comp off and putting an A2 comp on my stag. The one that came on the rifle is pinned only as far as I know. I have the ability to do the work but don't know if the A2 should be pinned and welded or just pinned. Has anyone done theirs? And how did it turn out...
  12. The AR-15
    What is the difference? To me the two look almost the same. Im thinking of putting a compensator on my ar but dont wanna be in violation of the NY AWB
  13. The AR-15
    Hi, Okay, I need someone who has the definitive bottom line on this: Visually, what makes a flash hider rather than a compensator? What's difference in how they look? I know the difference in what they do, but looking at one, how do you know it's a comp and not a fh? Is it that the fh has an...

    Is the Miculek compensator offered by DPMS for their 7.62 x 51 rifles compliant with NYS's assault weapons ban? Thanks in advance
  15. Rifles
    Ok so just wondering if anyone has any experiance with one first hand? I was originally going to use a Noveski Krink flash suppressor but due to the lack of finding a preban in my budget I will have to settle for a postban build up. Its between the Levang Linear and the Troy Claymore. The...

    A revision to the NYS assault weapons ban has passed the assembly and is currently in the senate. This bill has made it this far in the past and has died. Hopefully it dies again this time. Significant changes to the law include: Redefines assault weapons as a semi-automatic rille that...
