Well, I only fired one round, so I don't think that qualifies me to give a critique on it or anything. It felt good and I hit the target. It is a cool rifle in person. There's not much elce I can say about it.

<<<<What I have found out is to own an AR15 in NY,

There is a difference in the regulations for Pre-Ban and Post-Ban rifles. A pre-ban rifle is one that was manufactured prior to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. A post-ban is one manufactured after the 94' AWB. The major differences are,


3. Flash hider - Post-ban rifles must have the flash hider permanently pinned to the barrel.>>>>>>

Hi - I am new to the forum so forgive me if you already addressed this elsewhere. I also live in NYS and under the same restrictions as you. To the best of my knowledge flash suppressors/hiders are not allowed, permanently attached or not. Can you share with me your source that they are ok if permanently attached? I am considering a Next Generation ar-15 and that is the only way they come. Thanks so much. - Fred

CAUTION

Check your local laws also. In NY some of them are even more restrictive than the NY state laws.

The LAH's still follow the Brady Bill (1994-2004) crap that was to be done away with. Hope they get challenged someday like they were in Chicago recently.

Thanks but fortunately I don't live in NYC so I don't have to worry about their craziness, just the state's. I am pretty sure that no suppressor is legal, but wanted to explore all the possibilities. - Fred

Most AR manufacturer's sell NY compliant rifles. In the case of my STAG it came with a muzzle break permanently pinned to the barrel.

NY,

Suppressors are not illegal in most states as long as you have the Federal Tax Stamp and registration required. And you have them on a 16" barreled rifle or longer. If you were to have an SBR (Short Barreled Rifle) under 16" then more paperwork and another tax stamp. Which would mean 2 tax stamps. One for the SBR and one for the Suppressor. God only knows concerning some states like NY. CA. and the worst state of all for gun control NJ. Especially when it comes to ARs. Even a city jurisdiction sometimes have their own individual laws! Absolutely crazy!

Suppressors may or may not be illegal in NJ, probably are but I never checked. Moot point however, since threaded barrels are illegal...

JPYLE,

Nothing surprises me in NJ. A manufacturer of ARs must have a NJ state firearms dealer to sponsor them if they go there for a weapon show and bring any weapons. Even an LE Trade Show. That is why in the position I was in the company I worked for boycotted there shows due to their stupid laws.
Kind of like Barrett in California and the 50 BMG Rifles!!!

Gun shows in NJ are pointless. All you can do is look at the guns since the State Police prohibit any sales from taking place.
