  1. The AR-15
    Ok.. I know many lost mags on boating accidents or simply refuse to sell or modify but.. What abt everyone else? how did you modify your usgi 20 and 30 round mags to 10 rounds? mag blocks? epoxy? (On aluminum, yikes) JB Weld? Pop rivets? chop them into 48373773 pieces and toss them in the...

    So as many of you know the "and if" clause was stricken from the SAFE Act and that is the clause that restricted pre-ban mags. Does that mean they are legal again? SAFE Act Decision Highlights Embarrassing Mistakes by Gun Controllers in a Hurry - Hit & Run : Reason.com

    A buddy has a few of these and was asking me if he should sell them. I'm figuring the chance these will ever have any value (not monetary) over a standard lower in NY ever again is low. What do you guys think? Again...I'm not concerned with the cash value, more any value they'll have over a...

    Some Preban "Assault Weapons" | CCDL Blog I didn't hear much about this. It looks like the "assault weapons" made before 1994 AKA the Pre-ban guns are legal in the state of CT and do not need to be registered. They also can still be transferred, sold, purchased, etc. And I am still...

    "On Jan. 1 it will become illegal to manufacture or import traditional 60-watt and 40-watt incandescent bulbs, thanks to a 2007 bill that set strict minimum efficiency standards - and effectively outlawed the ordinary bulb." Last light: Final phaseout of incandescent bulbs coming Jan. 1 |...

    I should probably know the answer to this already - but I'm too lazy to look it up for myself... If I recall correctly, we have until next January to sell, permanently modify, or dispose of "high capacity" pre-ban magazines (assuming the law stands as is). However, are we still able to buy...

    I have thought since the law was passed the preban features of the AR 15 are grandfathered. I am learning now that they may not be. If it has a flash hider that is threaded on a bayonet mount, and a forward pistol grip. Is this gun now illegal.

    Now that King coumo has given his decree about registering assault rifles, if you do choose to register, can you have it in any configuration or do you have to keep it in either pre or post , depending on what it currently is???

  12. The AR-15
    If we only have preban 30 rounders, can we still use them till April 15? If not can we use them and just put 7 rounds in them?

    By registering my ar can I now gave the evil features on the ar15. Like a bayonet lug, telescoping , Thumb-hole Stock, muzzle Stock, ext. features. NYS say it has a detachable mag and ONE OR MORE military features it will need registering. So by Registering i can have more than one pre-ban...

    I have some Taurus PT92/PT99 pre-ban mags that will become illegal to own as of Jan 15, 2014. 1) Is there an easy way to permanently modify these to comply with the new law? 2) Are they legal to sell in NYS before the 10 round April 15, 2013 deadline, or the January 15, 2014 deadline? (leaving...

    I placed an order for a S&W MP 22 pistol on Jan 12 - three days before the legislation was signed. It was to come with one 10-rnd mag. Since then, the order had been languishing in "processing' status - until about an hour ago when i received an email with the following ... "Due to new current...

    So, let's say I have a mid-build ar that I'm looking to complete. It was purchased and in my possession before the ban. Can I still order a barrel with a pinned and welded muzzle break???

    Hypothetically, if someone still owned some 20 and 30 rd mags. Would you all suggest to sell them now or would it be best to throw them away?
  20. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    Sorry for seeming naive, but I'm struggling with this nonsense about pre-ban 30rd mags. I have a number of friends (of course not myself!) who I think may own pre-ban magazines. (I know, horrible) Am I correct in my interpretation that it is now a felony to possess them? And...If they tried...
