TonyRumore 1,329 Posted June 1, 2007 Report Share Posted June 1, 2007 I continue to get questions regarding NY assault weapons law when guys are asking to have work done. I have read over the New York regs and here is what it says. (I omitted the sections regarding rifles and pistols) Article 265.00 - Definitions 22b. "Assualt Weapon" means a semiautomatic shotgun that has at least two of the following: i. folding or telescoping stock. ii. pistol grip iii. fixed mag over 5 rounds iv. detachable magazine. 22e. provided however, that such term does not include: iii. a semiautomatic shotgun that cannot hold more than five rounds in a fixed or detachable magazine. v. a semiautomatic shotgun lawfully possessed prior to September 13, 1994. So... my take on it is that if you want to use 8 or 10 round magazines, then you can't have a pistol grip or folding stock on the gun. If you use only 5 round magazines, then it is exempt from Assault Weapon status per 22e, iii Any opinions on this? Tony Quote Link to post Share on other sites
