Hello.......Can someone please tell me the maximum legal number of rounds a shotgun can hold in NY ?? This is a HD shotgun,not a hunting shotgun.....Thank you.
Darthgamer,HOLD IT! HOLD IT RIGHT THERE! There is some false info being given out. Pump-action (or bolt or lever) limit is 10 shot mag. Mag is separate law from the gun. That's why the Kel-Tec KSG has debated on the legal side of things. A pump action shotgun with an 11 round mag is illegal.
That's from the AWB FAQ on this site, #2.LCAFD Law said:Any magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device that can hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition. One exception to this is a magazine that was manufactured before September 13, 1994. Another exception is an "attached tubular device designed to accept, and capable of operating only with .22 caliber rimfire ammunition". This means a tube similar to the magazine on a shotgun but on a .22 rimfire firearm.
NP. I think that the Kel-tec KSG was made with those 2 mags under 10-rounds specifically FOR states like ours.magazine, drum, feedstrip or similar share the common characteristic to be detachable.
They mention that a 22LR tube is an exception but it is not obvious in that provision a shotgun tube is inlcuded in the first place.
I don't think that it is worth arguing because it is not practical a shotgun tube with more than 10 rounds if they actually exist but this
is yet another example of how vague and confusing the laws are.
Thanks for sharing though.
Your only concern is magazine capacity there. You need to have it 10 or less, and you have 7. You pass.The gun in question is a Remington 870 A-TAC,so it has a regular stock and a built in pistol grip.......The tube holds 7 rounds,and one in the pipe for a total of 8......So I guess that is legal.... ???
I don't even know a tube extension that can hold more than 10, are there any manufacturer?Darthgamer138 is correct, of course.
10-round limit on all feeding devices that have been made after the magic date.
