    I seem to recall reading somewhere, and can't find it again now, that muzzle brakes were put back in as ok to have as a 'muzzle device' due to the vagueness of the wording in the SAFE Act after the NYSRPA case ruling. Any truth in this?
  2. The AR-15
    If a rifle is converted to a fixed magazine, is the muzzle device still required to be permanently installed(pinned or soldered)?

    Yeah, I know it's a budget rifle, however, I still love it. What are your thoughts on putting on a muzzle brake that does not thread the barrel since I have no threads? I couldn't find one for a reasonable price. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Seeing that the Judge stated that all wording regarding muzzle "breaks' are stricken from the law, does that mean that a pinned and welded and previously NY "compliant" muzzle BRAKE, is once again legal... since the threaded barrel technically can not be easily restored or converted back?

    If one were to replace the stock muzzle brake on a Springfield Arms M1A with a brake that had all the holes tack welded full, would said M!A be exempt from the Safe Act? Just sayin. Would said brake be classified as a barrel extension which is an evil feature? Is this just wishful thinking on my...

    Can someone tell me how can you really tell the difference between a Muzzle Brake and a Flash Hider,the reason I ask is almost every rifle I have seen look pretty much similar except the way some of them are design.. The reason I ask is when I went to have what I thought was a Muzzle Brake...

    Sounds stupid, I know...but I have a mini-14 tactical that is NY compliant except for the fact that the barrel is the shorter thicker one that has a muzzle brake on the end. If I cut it off, then the barrel will be too short, so I was looking to see if there is a muzzle brake that is just a...

    Let's just assume for the sake of argument that the SAFE act stands in its entirety. My muzzle brake is welded on to my barrel. Does it cease to exist as a muzzle brake? My thought process is that if it's welded on then it is nothing more than part of the barrel as it's no different than just...
  9. The AR-15
    Made for me by my friend that likes to play around with different brake designs. It's made from titanium so it weighs nothing but sure threw sparks when blasting it in the cabinet. It's on a Lothar Walther 16" medium contour stainless barrel. Turned it down on the lathe so its the same diameter...
  10. The AR-15
    Hello all, was wondering if a thread protector would be considered featureless after the brake is removed. And if the overall lenth is GTG does it have to be welded ? If this was discussed already my bad, having a debate with my buddy over this

    Hey everyone, I am sorry if this is a dumb question i just wanted to double check, I have done alot of reading for months and months about ny gun laws but that was all pretty much ar-15 and pistol specific, My question is i want to buy a new .300 win mag, and was wondering if It is legal for me...

    Anybody seen any 458 socom barrels that dont have the muzzle threaded? Id like to make a NYS compliant .458 socom for deer hunting I was about to get the parts for one just before the safe act came around and it kinda ruined my plans

    While looking through the law I noticed something exciting. They did not ban muzzle brakes. (i) a folding or telescoping stock; (ii) a pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon; (iii) a thumbhole stock; (iv) a second handgrip or a protruding grip that can be...

    I own a legal sport model Saiga. I understand I can't thread the barrel legally. But are these legal options? 1. 308 SAIGA SGM MUZZLE BRAKE or 2. Slip Over Muzzle Brake for the Saiga Rifle .223 5.45 and 7.62 ??? Thanks in advance for any input.
