It is my understanding that you basically can't have a stock that moves in NYS, I'm used to ARs but is a fold over stock legal on a shotgun here? A friend of mine wants it on his Mossberg.

Semi auto or pump?

That is the key.

Really? It's a 500, so pump.

Yeah semi autos are regulated by the AWB...not bolt or pump actions. He can have all the evil features he wants.

Pump action go balls to the wall with what you want. I am building a 870 with a magpul ctr

You are still required to comply with the +10 rd LCAFD tubular mag ban on a postban SG but that's not likely to be an issue.

I think the only other thing you have to worry about with a shotgun is overall length. I believe it cannot be less than 24 inches, with either a folded stock or pistol grip. most pumps with an 18 inch barrel are easily over this though.

18" minimum length barrel AND 26" minimum overall length for a legal length shotgun under both Federal and NYS law.

3. "Firearm" means (a) any pistol or revolver; or (b) a shotgun having
one or more barrels less than eighteen inches in length; or (c) a rifle
having one or more barrels less than sixteen inches in length; or (d)
any weapon made from a shotgun or rifle whether by alteration,
modification, or otherwise if such weapon as altered, modified, or
otherwise has an overall length of less than twenty-six inches; or (e)
an assault weapon. For the purpose of this subdivision the length of the
barrel on a shotgun or rifle shall be determined by measuring the
distance between the muzzle and the face of the bolt, breech, or
breechlock when closed and when the shotgun or rifle is cocked; the
overall length of a weapon made from a shotgun or rifle is the distance
between the extreme ends of the weapon measured along a line parallel to
the center line of the bore. Firearm does not include an antique
firearm.

Ok so 26 in is the measurement. I couldn't remember exactly. Keep the barrel off. When all hell breaks loose nobody is measuring your shotgun length or looking at your mags to see if they're preban, bayo lug..... etc.
