    I don't know about new. There was a weight limit and with the SAFE act you might have issues with the pistol grip itself since it isn't also the magwell.

    Before hand if you had it registered as a pistol you might still be able to have it.

        It is completely legal in NY with a "fixed magazine" configuration, it has been done in some counties upstate, the weight limit does not apply since it would not be an "assault weapon". They tyrants at SCPD PLB would most likely DENY your registration, it's your choice if you want to fight this battle.

          And then promptly arrest you for being in possession.

          I am not armed out of fear of who's in front of me.
          I am armed out of love of those behind me.

            Sounds about right I guess. To be honest, I have not stayed up on NY laws for awhile.

            AR pistols however are quite common around here. Being so close to a state line and having them regulated as pistols, allows people to cross over the VA, NC and KY without having to deal with SBR and ATF regs.

              I could be wrong but I thought the weight limit of 50oz. was on handguns not assault weapons.

                I think DSI was selling fixed mag AR pistols. Can’t remember if it was Nassau or Suffolk that was good with them. I consider them a novelty. I would rather build them for cheap than pay their prices for a built one.

                  With a 10.5” barrel and a brace they are far from a novelty. They can hit easily at 100 yards and have no SBR restrictions when crossing a state line.

                    According to the CUOMO/RINO Act a 50 oz handgun is an assault weapon,

                    Seems like an AR pistol would also meet the last characteristic so it would need to have a fixed mag

                    N.Y. Penal Law § 265.00(22)

                    (c) a semiautomatic pistol that has an ability to accept a detachable magazine and has at least one of the following characteristics:

                    (i) a folding or telescoping stock; (ii) a thumbhole stock; (iii) a second handgrip or a protruding grip that can be held by the non-trigger hand; (iv) capacity to accept an ammunition magazine that attaches to the pistol outside of the pistol grip; (v) a threaded barrel capable of accepting a barrel extender, flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer; (vi) a shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the barrel and that permits the shooter to hold the firearm with the non-trigger hand without being burned;
                    (vii) a manufactured weight of fifty ounces or more when the pistol is unloaded;
                    or
                    (viii) a semiautomatic version of an automatic rifle, shotgun or firearm;

                      I believe Nassau was not okay with it. Suffolk I think was, double check with dsi if you want. I know in ROCKLAND county their county is okay with it.

                          Not anymore. Nassau doesn’t allow it anymore I believe due to dsi. Someone tried to register a dsi one and they contacted dsi and said it was a no go. This was from early 2018.

                              I know a few guys who have them in Nassau, I guess they are grandfathered in.
