I"ve seen this before in 9mm. It would certainly be NY legal in my opinion.

It certainly sounds like a legal option though not a route I would go down. I would like to at least dream that we are not to the point of seriously considering uk work arounds in our state.

Likely to still be a semi by the NY standards.

utilizes a portion of the energy of a firing cartridge or shell to extract the fired cartridge case or spent shell and chamber the next round

The round is both extracted and chambered by the energy of the fired round - manually releasing the bolt or carrier so that the potential energy stored in the recoil spring by the fired round does not change where that potential energy came from.

A system where the fired round extracts the round, but some other source of energy chambered a round would like not be semi automatic by definition. In my spare time I have been wondering if some type of electric actuator could be used in buffer tube of an AR to push the carrier forward after a round is fired. The bolt release could simply be integrated into the trigger mechanism so that when the trigger is reset after a pull, the carrier is pushed forward.

i like the ingenuity, but it really sucks that we have to find "work arounds" for unconstitutional laws... when the hell are people going to take control back from these corrupt politicians and say enough is enough?

21. "Semiautomatic" means any repeating rifle, shotgun or pistol, regardless of barrel or overall length, which utilizes a portion of the energy of a firing cartridge or shell to extract the fired cartridge case or spent shell and chamber the next round, and which requires a separate pull of the trigger to fire each cartridge or shell. - See more at: N.Y. PEN. LAW § 265.00 : NY Code - Section 265.00: Definitions

Looks to be legal bacause the round has to be chambered by the gas system. The lower receiver is blocking that from happening.

This rifle's gas system does not chamber a round. It has to manually be chambered by your finger unless the rifle is altered.

This rifle / post make me feel lonely. It really drives home how free everyone else in 46 other states are... that they've never had to waste a minute of their life after 2004 worrying about any of this crap.

I find the thordsen stock to be quite easy to shoot with. I have 2 of them. ars don't need to be registered with them on. put a Shiloh 20" wylde 556 barrel on one of them. highly accurate and fun to shoot.

I truly love the ingenuity of work-arounds, except when its politicians working around the law of the land. The problem though, does not exist with the equipment, per se, because new laws will come out and ban them as well. Wake the ef up, they want all your guns, one increment at a time.

You are ALMOST correct...the gas system does do MOST of the work to chamber a round...but not ALL of the work. The simple action of pushing the release button DOES do something to cause a round to be chambered...so chambering is not ENTIRELY done by the gas system.
