  1. Handguns
    As you know king Cuomo doesn't like satandard capacity magazine so he has put a limit on what responsible firearm owners can carry. This obviously doesn't affect criminals who are laughing at these gun laws. Some of you spent a lot of money in preban standard capacity magazines so don't get rid...
  2. General Firearms
    So i was in my LGS and i saw one of these... and it got me thinking, what if we could get a stock like that for our AK's and other riffles without buffer tubes? Obviously it would have to be a little different than the Circuit Judge's, but in concept, could it work?
  3. Off Topic Lounge
    I got around to thinking about the violation of having to make firearms in common use, compliant, or banning features which make the typical use for the gun, most functional. Or more to the point: Functioning as Intended. I highlighted the relevant text to my argument. It may be another angle...
  4. Rifles
    I was just looking at the charging cable for my tablet and it uses a maglock type system. It got me thinking. What if your pistol grip was attached to a glove? The spur type nub attached to the rifle would have rare earth magnets as well as the glove. They only fit one way and would detach...
  5. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    For anyone who had firearms or firearms parts (pre-94 magazines) that they either can no longer possess, or have to modify/spend money to modify (MR2, M1 carbine barrel bands, etc...) to make "compliant", can you write that off as a loss on your NY State taxes? I'm sure some people will have...
  6. The AR-15
    Not for me but if guys are converting to be compliant does that mean you can't have a railed forend?
  7. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    922R states It shall be unlawful for any person to assemble from imported parts any semiautomatic rifle or any shotgun which is IDENTICAL to any rifle or shotgun prohibited from importation under section 925 (d)(3) of this chapter as not being particularly suitable for or readily adaptable to...

    So I just bought a Benelli M4. Beautiful gun. Italian. So reading through a 922r summary, it is illegal if it contains more than 10 imported parts from a specified list unless it was assembled by manufacturer licensed in US. It seems it has more than 10 specified parts so I'm assuming its...
  9. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    OK, I feel like I gave in, but here's what I did to my semi-auto in order to be compliant. The reason for doing this is I like to take the rifle out and shoot it - which I did a couple days back. I put it out here because I think others might consider doing the same so that they can enjoy using...
  10. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    So if you disassemble your pre-bans into a pile of floor plates, springs, followers and casings are you in compliance if law sticks? It would seem to me that you would just be in possession of parts but nothing remotely being able to feed your semi automatic rifle. just looking for alternatives...
  11. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    This appears to be NYC only at this time. Its certainly related to the SAFE act, but I don't recall any language in the SAFE act which requires proactively proving compliance with mag requirements ... anyone able to give insight? "Many license holders own handguns with magazines that have a...
  12. The AR-15
    Easy to do on a 5.56 DI AR-15 but how would one turn their M&P15-22 into a Straight Pull or "Bolt Action"? I had planned on just putting my 5.56 semi upper and BCG in the safe while waiting for the Federal government to do the right thing...or until I move.

  14. Rifles
    So a local FFL dealer has a American made 5 round mag I want to buy for my stock saiga rifle. If I buy it and stick that American made 5 round mag into my rifle will I be violating the 922r federal law? I interpreted the law saying i can't add evil features to it with out being 100% compliant...

    Thats what alot of callers were saying on Lonsberry today. Just reporting not advising. 1180 wham Lonsberry said it has to be all, not some, all.
  16. MTM Manufacturing
    Due to a massive influx of gunsmith work orders, and sales...please read the following... -----Compliance / Gunsmithing---- Compliance work is estimated at a 3 month back log currently. Our pricing and rates have changed and I will be updating them accordingly -----Custom ARs------...
  17. The AR-15
    So, this new ban will make semi-auto rifles illegal. What if I took the gas tube out of my AR, and put in a little plug or something into the hole in the gas block so my face wouldn't get burned? Now, I'm not asking about the mechanics of it all because I know more about AR's than most people...
  18. The AR-15
    With all I read on pre ban and NY State complaint AR -15's I wonder Is anyone checking compliance , like if you are at the range and the PD shows up do they inspect your AR? If your seen transporting an AR are you open to inspection by the PD? An AR wannabe:D
  19. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    I just bought a S&W MP15-22 from my local shop the other day, I got a pretty decent deal on it and no one else local to me had one so I took it no questions asked. Now that it's home I am realizing that I am pretty sure its a CA compliant version, not NY. I was told the flash suppressor was...
  20. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    if i were to install a bullet button mag release like calif uses with a 10 round magazine so i would now not have a detachable magazine and not more than 10 rounds, would this now allow me to have a non pinned muzzle device? i would still retain the A2 rifle stock and pistol grip but now my evil...
