If its 15 in all of NY im breaking the law...

That said, Rochester and Albany also have "assault weapon" bans.

I do not believe there is a limit in NY for pistols or Rifles....

As far as I know, you can slap a beta C into a AR pistol.....

Except for having no "sunset" provision,
NY law copies the Federal Assault weapon law.

"preban" high cap mags (any capacity) are
legal to possess and use in ANY firearm.

Rifle NYC - 5 rounds for a semi-auto, All SAW's are banned in addition to some semi-auto pistols which are classified as assault weapons.

NJ is 15 rounds for either a rifle or handgun. YOu can block a highercapacity magazine to 15 rounds, It can be either temporary or permanent.
