Hey, my name is Joe, i'm new to the boards here. I live in NY, and i want an AR BAD! Is there any restrictions I need to follow? I've been reading a lot of laws about handguns because i'm applying for my CCW...but I'm not totally sure what the deal is with Rifles.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Joe

NYS Assault Weapon Ban Text

Basically you can have an AR-15 as long as it doesn't possess more that one evil feature (Pistol Grip, Flash Supressor or threaded barrel able to accept a flash supressor, Collapsable Buttstock, and a Bayonette Lug). Since they all have a Pistol Grip, that's usually the pasrt that fills the allowed part list.

Rifles that left the factory as a full assembled rifle before September 13, 1994 are grandfathered (preban) may possess the "evil Features."

As with all long guns it must have a barrel of at least 16 inches in length and an overall length of 16 inches. (Shotguns must have 18 inch barrels). A permenantly attatched muzzle device may be added to make the overall length of the barrel 16 inches (Muzzle Brake/Compensator).

Magazines made after September 13, 1994 may not hold more than 10 rounds.

And Yes, you can use preban magazines in a Post ban weapon
