I bought one last January - a DPMS LR308B. Nice gun. It is legal in NY but there are AWB restrictions that did not sunset with the 94' AWB. Max capacity is 10 rd. magazine. Since my DPMS doesn't come with a flash supressor or bayonet lug I had no problems. My RRA AR-15 on the other hand was shipped without the standard flash supressor and without the bayonet lug under the A2 front sight. I bought my DPMS from a third party supplier however, and they shipped it with two 20 rd. mags instead of 10 rd mags. I am assuming they are pre-ban mags (which can legally be owned in NY) since post ban manufacture limits mag capacity to 10 rds. Flash supressors and bayonet lugs are NOT allowed in NY - it used to be that permanently attached (welded) muzzle devices were allowed - not anymore, and certainly not threaded and removeable.Hello, I live in ny and i was wondering if it is legal for me to own a dpms panther arms DCM .223 rifle? thank you!
Yeah, what the hell am I supposed to do when I absolutely, positively feel the irrepressable urge to stab someone to death with my bayonet, or take up a night time ambush position without the benefit of a flash supressor? This is discrimination! lolRL- y'all still having that problem with drive by bayonetings, huh? (GRIN)
right now there is no provision made to identify post sunset high capacity magazines that are brought into NY. i'm so glad my tax dollars payed for a law that can't be enforced and has no impact on violent crime!Yes, I forgot to mention that. However, if you get completely unmarked mags or mags with date stamps before 9/94, you can have 20 and 30 round mags no problem.
I was told that LE has ways of determining the manufacture date of a magazine? Is this not true? My DPMS AR shipped from a 3rd party vendor to me in NY with (2) 20 rd. mags. I don't even think DPMS made a .308 AR before 1994!right now there is no provision made to identify post sunset high capacity magazines that are brought into NY. i'm so glad my tax dollars payed for a law that can't be enforced and has no impact on violent crime!
Most mags have some markings, additionally some mags have "strengthening" grooves stamped in different locations on the sheet metal from one brand to the next and from one manufacture date to the next...I've seen it stated on another forum which is predominantly LE, that they can tell. I'd like to know if that's true, and if so , how.That would be some trick if the mags had absolutely no markings whatsoever.
