Glock in Mass.
 
Can you buy a Glock in Massachusetts? I heard a rumor that it wasn't possible.

The main reason why a firearm isn't allowed in this state is - The manufacturer didn't pay a fee to have it sold here.

There are a few other reasons, however, most (if not all - only a small amount are outright banned) reasons that firearms are not allowed in MA is because of consumer laws.

Yes, you CAN own and purchase a Glock in MA.

Currently, Gen 4 Glocks are the only ones that we can't get, yet.

Whoever you heard this rumor from is an idiot.

I bought a pre-ban Glock 19 Gen2, 4 months ago at a gun shop for $500. It came with a 15rd mag and everything was legal. I could of even bought a 30rd mag for $100 extra but declined. That being said, I had been searching for a high cap Glock for a long time before this one came along. You need to be patient and ready to go when the call comes in.

Do you know something I don't? I've been looking for evidence of any discussions at the state level about lifting the AWB. Unfortunately, last time I checked, Devalue Patrick was still the gov.

Go to Four Seasons in Woburn, last time I was there (a few months ago) they had a few Gen 2 and 3 Glocks.

As far as an AWB, when did this happen (again)? I visited 2 different LGS over the weekend, and they were still selling ARs and AKs.. (we still have restrictions on them, but as far as I know, not a full out ban).

Maybe drop tests also?

There are many reasons. Like I said before, the d-bag AG is using consumer laws to try to keep guns out of the state.

Fortunately, there are many companies that like doing business with us that make MA compliant arms and accessories (just as they do for CA).

The reason for not allowing a single action revolver probably has more to do with the lack of paying a fee to get added to the list than anything else. While the AG is a d-bag, the former one that set up this BS also knew that he couldn't outright ban a firearm, especially when the Gov at the time wouldn't have let him.
