Why?. This is a gun forum and there are people that can answer her correctly.I wouldn't check with people on here about this, you need to read up on NY law or talk to an attorney I'd wager. Too much on the line.
READ THE SAFE-ACT..........Could my son, who is 19, buy a non detachable magazine AR-15? If not, could he purchase a lower receiver and build his own? What is his best option?
Thank you so much for your very detailed response. I read the NY SAFE ACT and it stated if the magazine is fixed, it’s not an “assault weapon”. So since he will be getting the 10-round fixed magazine, could he get other features like a collapsible stock, pistol grip and muzzle brake? What age could he purchase an AR-15, 18 or 21? What age could he purchase a lower receiver with the fixed magazine, 18 or 21? Thank you so much again.Why?. This is a gun forum and there are people that can answer her correctly.
There are allot of members that are in NY and have to deal with the laws EVERY DAY. AND I am a dealer in NY and can answer any question regarding NY gun laws.
READ THE SAFE-ACT..........
You will NOT be able to buy a AR-15 in NY with a detachable mag. In NY they have to be a permitly attached Magazine.
With that said there are ways to do what the powers to be want and make them happy the way I do it in my shop is with a Mag-Lock system. But the Mag does have to be a 10 round mag only.
Yes he can buy a lower (With a back round check) and build one but that one also has to have a locked mag. Having a AR-15 with out one will cost you time in jail.
DO NOT LET YOUR SON DO THIS WITHOUT FOLLOWING THE LAW!!!!!!!!!!!
Or you will be visiting him in jail.
I do not know in what part you are in NY some county's enforce the safe-act with a passion. Others do not.
BUT ALL WILL ARREST FOR A REMOVEABLE MAG. OR FOR A MAG THAT HOLDS OVER 10 ROUNDS.
PS- Welcome to TFF.
Seems to me, that if an AR has to have a fixed magazine, that you would not be able to buy a lower in NY without a fixed magazine already done. Stupid laws.You can buy a long gun (Ar-15) at 18 years old or above.
Yes if it has a fixed mag. you can have all the extras.
You can buy a lower at 18 too.
Why don't you have your son come on TFF and ask the questions he needs answered.
If he is old enough to buy and use a AR then he should be the one asking the questions.
When he buys a lower it will not have a fixed mag. he will have to do the work himself.
No you can buy a lower that has nothing done to it. If you are building it it is up to you to make it compliant.Seems to me, that if an AR has to have a fixed magazine, that you would not be able to buy a lower in NY without a fixed magazine already done. Stupid laws.
Really?.Move from New York and be free
I might agree but sense there are people here that know the laws (And that is ALL the new laws for there state) Asking here is as good as calling LEO that might give you bad info.With all the recent state and metropolitan changes in laws regarding age to buy, outlawed features, etc., you do need to check your local laws. There should be info online, an official website with pertinent laws and regulations. And, a call to your chief LEO should get you the info.
