    Genius! Sheer genius, I tell you! Something like that would leave a permanent marking on a fired primer, which would allow you to determine that the fatal shots were fired from...... a gun stolen two years ago in a burglary.

    Or sold in a Dept of Justice sanctioned straw man sale.

    Something like that would leave a mark on every primer it struck! To remove that feature would take at least 10 seconds and a strip of wet-r-dry sandpaper! Genius, I tell you!

    I’m missing something.
    Is the proposed state regulation to require all guns MADE in NY to have microstamping, or all guns SOLD in NY to have microstamping?
    The former means guns NOT made in NY and without the microstamping would be okay to buy.
    The latter means Remington could save themselves the tooling, and moving, expen$e by just not selling NY their guns.

    All this does is just give anyone with a half a brain in their head the two perfect accessories to commit crime.

    Step 1) Pull microstamped pin and replace with aftermarket

    Step 2) Visit indoor range and collect like caliber brass

    Step 3) Commit crime with handgun, drop microstamped shell casings at scene from indoor rane

    Step 4) Replace original firing pin SHOULD a miracle happen and the police show up to want to test your handgun.

    :rolleyes:

    Really? Please tell me someone on the anti-gun side has more brains than that. That's like playing Chess against brain dead vegetable.... wait. I digress..... :eek:

    Another good point. Pick one in a common caliber and then throw some shell casings on the ground. They won't know until they do a ballistics on the bullet for lands and grooves.

    Fire off a six pack of fire forming rounds to alter the lands and grooves and they would be hard pressed to make a realistic match that would hold up in court.

    This is also about raising the cost of firearms to try to reduce the number purchased. Making unique firing pins will raise costs significantly for the manufacturer and that cost will be passed on to the consumer.

    There's plenty of ways around that if you are not a mass producing super giant.

    "Here I present to you the new JD 1911 almost fully functioning handgun*"


    *firing pin not included, please click the link on the bottom of the page to go to our sister companies' website where one can be purchased to fit your model. This was not our idea but the liberal jackholes in your fair state of forced to do this ridiculous measure just to be able to sell you a gun at a price you can afford. :rolleyes:

    Because the factory and real estate had already been paid off ages ago and the work force is already trained and experienced. How long would it take to reach the break even point be on a new facility with mostly new people. I'm not saying it wouldn't be worthwhile, I'm just saying that's why one might want to keep the manufacturing where it is.
