Staples for a staple nailer. Like when you do cedar siding on a house. They're like finish nails in diameter

Looks nice, yet it looks like it has a thread protector on the barrel, I would be concerned if non LEO.

Talk about resurrecting an old post.  It's not easy to find NY compliant AK's.   The Russian saiga sporters used to be good choices, but Obama stopped them from being imported into the country as part of his sanctions against Russia.   If you can find one of those rifles around, they are going for north of $800 (used to be $350).  That said, the triggers on the saiga sporters suck!   You can probably build  your own AK.   There are kits out there, including a new one that's being sold by Palmetto State Armory.   You'll need to use a spur grip for an AR and fabricate a wooden spacer or something similar so that it will fit correctly on the rifle.  You'd also have to weld on a thread protector.   I have no experience with AK's, but it's my understanding building your own from a kit is a lot more involved than building an AR.  If you're going to go with Lee Armory, you're going to be paying a LOT of money for a mid-range AK.   I just don't see the value.   You'd be better off going with an SKS or Mini 30 for a semi-auto that shoots 7.62x39.

Or, you can go with a simple adaptor and a Spur Grip.

 because they are new here, they go reading old threads, marvelling at the treasure trove of knowledge. they get so carried away that they just have to chime in on a topic, without checking if the OP is even dead by now, or banned, and therefore not seeing the response.

You can get the Saiga/AK  AR PG conversion for like 8 buck from any of the usual suspects (Carolina or Missisipi Auto )

 

So yeah, any AKM style can be compiant with a Spur or Boar grip for a few bucks, whether it;s ergonomic is another deal altogether.

Incorrect it can't have a muzzle break. Compensator. Bayonet lug. Nothing. I like the way my Lee ak was made, especially with a polished bcg and it costed me 999 transferred. Why buy a junk century arms or saiga? Even if the century is 600 and you pay a gs to remove brake or put on spur. $100 extra. $700 gun and it will still jam.

Saiga sporters don't have any muzzle brakes, threaded barrels, etc. by import law thus being great for NY compliance. You're stating the obvious. You must be new. A "junk" saiga. You do realize Arsenal and many custom shops select Saigas in free states as their platforms for builds?? None of those guns will jam, newb, btw, nothing in the AKM will jam. We used to buy plain jane WARS all day long in the pre-ban days here in NY. Their finish was ugly as EFF, but one thing all the AKMs including cheap Romy WASRs would do all day long is not one FTF of FTE.

You can always find a norinco hunter listed on gunbroker. Milled receiver, 20" barrel, hair trigger. They are often converted to a Galil.hunter1.jpg

New, that's funny I knew I would wake up to a laugh today. Century/arsenal is junk I've owned one before - us made. The real deal is made in Russia. Saiga has that disgusting hunting stock. Your missing the point here if you want to buy a ny legal ak - go Lee Arms. Nobody has aks on Long Island that they will transfer to you and let you leave with an assault rifle config.

Read the statute (NY Penal Law 265) or retain an attorney for an opinion letter.   Internet advice on whats legal is dangerous. 

 

That being said, the rifle in the picture has a spur grip, which is likely, but not certainly legal.    AFAIK nobody from the state has ever come out and said they were illegal. 

 

"Are pistal grips legal On a semi automatic" ?   No, not on rifles with detachable magazines.   Is the spur grip a "pistol grip".  As I said, unlikely but who knows in this state, where judges defer to the government on almost anything vague in a gun statute.

The Spur Grip AR used in the Murder at a Bronx Hospital was reported legal by the NYSP. Another self defense Spur grip AR was returned to the owner by the SCPD.
When the Safe Act came out, people claim they received different opinions when they called. The best advice is get it on Department Letterhead. Unfortunately it’s difficult to obtain that letter without the help of an attorney.

I would just narrow your “online” search to featureless guns that you can have shipped to an FFL, my understanding the pistol grip makes detachable magazine an issue, you can have a detachable magazine if the stock is compliant. Definitely fact check me on that but this is my understanding. Good luck on the search
