Are AR15 pistols legal in NY? There's no way it's legal in NYC.
I saw someone at the range with one this weekend and it has me thinking.
Are there barrel length requirements, what about mag capacity?

pretty sure its the same as the rest of the pistol laws for an assault weapon. must be under 50 oz unloaded, no barrel shroud maybe? mag capacity is a different law, so prebans are gtg.

ETA: here

Pistols
In order to qualify as a SAW, a pistol must be semiautomatic and be able to accept a detachable magazine. It may not have more than one “evil” feature. These “evil” features are as follows:

A threaded barrel capable of accepting a sound suppressor, forward grip, barrel extension, or flash hider

A barrel shroud that partially or completely encircles the barrel

A magazine that attaches to the pistol outside of the pistol grip

A manufactured weight of 50 ounces or greater unloaded

Yes they are legal in NYS. Bushmaster and Olympic Arms both make a NYS compliant model or find yourself a preban for evil feature fun.

Update: Looks like Olympic Arms no longer makes the NYS compliant model.
