I know it's over and yall don't even like to talk about it but I was just wondering if the AWB had anything in it regarding belt fed guns considering they put a 10 round magazine limit in there.

10 round limits for belt feds.

As for evil features- no limits.

FAB-10 plus SHRIKE.

Except pre-ban belts of course.

NY's wording, not positive on how close the fed was to this but NY's is supposed to be a mirrir copy except for the expiration clause

23. "Large capacity ammunition feeding device" means a magazine, belt,
drum, feed strip, or similar device, manufactured after September
thirteenth, nineteen hundred ninety-four, that has a capacity of, or
that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than ten
rounds of ammunition; provided, however, that such term does not include
an attached tubular device designed to accept, and capable of operating
only with, .22 caliber rimfire ammunition.

IIRC, the links were required to have "post-ban" markings.

So....if someone had a belt-fed upper, and was running a 200-rd. belt on it when the Seargent of East Gebip State Police rolled up, he could just explain to the kindly officer that it's actually 20 10-round belts, which just happened to be linked together to improve efficiency and speed up production time for his once-fired shell casing business, right? Right?

The California assault weapon laws specifically names belt-fed weapons as asssault weapons. It's like having a high cap magazine.

If you'd have had a Shrike before the ban and registered it, it would have been legal.
