I got me a compliant SA M1A a few years back and I can tell you the barrel is not as long as it shows on your posted photo. It almost feels like a 16 inch size rifle. Never really measured it. It is a scout squad model with the front rail section.

Felt recoil definitely less than your typical non braked bolt action in 308.

Now if you want to spend the extra money you can call LRB and see if they still offer their Sporter model that is NY compliant. Quite unique and definitely an eye catcher.

Its been almost 8 years since this abomination came out so some of us could probably use the actual verbiage...

So why is a Saiga 12 illegal? It only has one characteristic - the detachable magazine. What am I missing here?

I agree the barrel seems short so happy with the way it looks.

Unfortunately, it’s going on 2 years since I owned it and I have yet to put a round through it! Shame on me. I gotta make some time...

Regarding the stock non compliance, I was thinking yesterday it is akin to a Thordsen stock. What is it about this one that makes it a pistol grip/no go?

 

If you wrap your thumb around the grip, and be able to fire while the web of hand (between the thumb and the index figer) is below the action, the grip is not compliant. With the Thordsen stock, it is impossible to have the web of hand below the action and still be able to fire. So the Thordsen stock is compliant.

Yep. We have twins. Such a great rifle. Some people freak out with not having the brake but i really dont care about it. The Semi auto action absorbs plenty of the recoil so it is not hard to shoot. Actually my Remington 700 has worse felt recoil than this one. Not super heavy either.
