    So I see a lot of online vendors selling rifles with the ARMagLock installed. It seems that it turns the gun into a top-loader, but of course you could then keep the pistol grip, telescoping stock, flash hider etc, since the rifle doesn't have a detachable magazine. When I decide to move, I...

  3. Shotguns
    Hi I'm looking to switch up the stock on my 870. Just wondering if a set up like in the picture is ok, most likely gonna skip the adjustable stock but I might keep it. I'm pretty sure the SA isn't an issue for pump shotguns but I'm interested in some advice on the matter don't need any problems...

    So correct me if I'm wrong, but a flash hider is completely legal on a fixed magazine semi automatic rifle correct?

    Part of the discussion in this thread touched on the NY law that outlaws militias. This struck me as odd, because the 2A clearly states: "A well regulated militia..." My argument stems from what the 2A doesn't say. The 2A does not state that it must be a government run militia...and...

    Are gun-mounted lasers legal in New York CITY, I keep seeing on Amazon and other sites that they wont ship laser sights to NYC. However, I am unable to find any law to prohibit that? Thank you, Alex.

    plan on picking up a Mossberg 500 with a 20" barrel in this configuration. my question is. is it legal to own or buy? Its capacity is 7+1. from reading the NYsafe act site my interpertation is its legal to own because its fixed capcity is 7 rounds.

    This may seem absurd to some but I have to ask cause NYC is such a confusing place with regards to these things. Is it legal to have sidearms out in your apartment while you are home? Which is to say: could I have a handgun in an IWB while at home or have it sitting on a table or would that be...

    If the muzzle had a pinned welded cap do you think this would meet legality? In my opinion the pistol grip is not conspicuously below the action of the weapon. It is much further forward. So the other thing would be a thumb hole stock. I would say the grip is also to far forward to be...

    Legality of say M&P15 which "looks like" an AR15 in New York City. Now we all know that AR-15 are banned by name in AWB and clones, however it seems that M&P15 or Ruger, or Bushmuster are included, only Colts. So assuming the gun has no evil features NO pistol grip, no collapsible stock, no...

    So my town just passed a local law requiring me to pay to register my vehicle for a sticker that has to be placed on my window to use the dump. Is there any possible legal basis to be able to still use the dump and not comply with this law. Really I am tired of constant and new regulations...

    see a bunch of places that are selling 30 round mag part kitsand claiming they 100% legal to buy. is this true and obviously putting it together would make it illegal. but can someone buy one leave it in parts and then do whatever with it?

    Did a search and nothing came up, also my very first thread (I've been reading threads for a while now) I came accross a post by MAC shockwavetechnologies.com » The 14″ Mossberg 500 That ISN'T NFA! Basically, according to an ATF ruling, firearms with 14″ barrels that are pistol-grip-only...

    Since the implementation of the 7-Round magazine capacity restriction, am I able to buy a 8-Shot revolver?

    Some how I completely over looked my 1866 when considering how the safe act effected my collection. Actually I think I just forgot how many rounds it holds because I don't fire it very often. I just want to make sure I have interpreted this correctly. I have an Uberti 1866 chambered in 38 with a...

    As an offshoot of my cannon hobby, I've become interested in the idea of building a 'hand cannon', or hand gonne. These are essentially a small muzzle loading black powder cannon attached to a wooden pole, or 'tiller'. My question is one of legality. I do not have a pistol permit, but it is...

    Ok. My Stag AR with a 5 round magazine is sitting in my gun safe. Is it illegal for me to own a few 30 round magazines and keep them in the safe as well? Keep in mind that they are not inserted into the mag-well. They are just resting on the top shelf of my safe. Am I breaking the law by...

    Just curious if its ok in NY to have a threaded barrel on a rifle that is a bolt action? Thanks

    Is the Colt M2012 legal? Technically its a bolt action.
  20. Rifles
    Since the AR-30 is a bolt action rifle is it legal in NYS? If not can someone point me in the direction of a "good" bolt action rifle with a pistol grip and the ability to attach a bi-pod?
