    So I have four rifles and I am moving from Suffolk county to Brooklyn for two years. Then retiring to Virginia. Question: Does any one know or can suggest what to do with the rifles because they are not allowed in the city. Don't want to get arrested before retirement.....lol
  2. Newbie's Unite!
    Hello All, I'm new here, so please forgive my ignorance. My father recently passed and he gave me his 3 hunting rifles. He was a NJ resident, but the rifles were purchased in NY most likely a long time ago. I'm not sure exactly of their models, i'd have to double check, they've been put away...

    "Accidental discharges are at the center of a recall issued Thursday by Thompson/Center Arms for its Compass model of bolt-action rifles. The gun maker said depending on the height and position of the Compass rifle, as well as other factors, a chambered round may fire if the long gun is...

  5. Optics
    So I have an AR15 and a DPMS style AR10. I am interested in a good quality, but budget optics for both, and I am leaning towards a red dot. I had an EOtech 512. I couldnt see the reticle in sunlight with fresh batteries, but I do like the circle and dot. I sent it in for a refund. I want to use...

    "FN America issued a mandatory recall for hundreds for FN SCAR rifles, according to Aug. 10 announcement.

  8. Nassau County Licensing/Laws
    So I went to a local gun store to buy a gun. Obviously you have to fill out the paperwork for the background check and everything. Everything came back good and I bought an AR-15. I noticed they wrote down the serial number to the gun on the paperwork I filled out. My question is does the...
  9. Nassau County Licensing/Laws
    I have put off getting an AR for awhile but have decided I'm just going to do it. I have been looking at a bunch but it is extremely confusing. What are the restrictions to make it ny legal? Is it ok to pin a collapsible stock? Minimum rifle length? Minimum barrel length? Bullet button legal...

  13. Milsurp Rifles
    So SKSs have been harder to get at decent prices, recently Classic had Yugos in VG-execellent cond for 400 or so, etc. I took a chance on a few VG Type 56 Chinese SKSs from J&G Sales (a well established online outlet) and was pleased with the result. The price was about 300 thought it goes up...

  15. Nassau County Ranges
    I haven't been to the range in a while. Has the DSI fiasco had any effect on the number of people shooting featureless rifles? Any hard times to be had from range officers?
  16. AR Rifles
    I figured since we had a 22LR pistol thread running let's have a 22 thread for our rifles. Me first. Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22 1) pinned stock ( this is silly ) 2) spur in place of the evil grip. ( neutered ) 3) fake suppressor for a non threaded barrel. Set screw holds it in place. ( extremely...

    http://nypost.com/2016/03/07/navy-seals-dont-have-enough-combat-rifles-to-go-around/ WASHINGTON - The tip of the spear may be losing its edge. Navy SEAL teams don't have enough combat rifles to go around, even as these highly trained forces are relied on more than ever to carry out...
  19. NYS and NYC Licensing/Laws Discussions
    Has anyone gone through the process of registering a lever gun with the NYC rifle-shotgun section? The main thing I'm wondering about is what can you do to block the capacity down to the "safe and socially acceptable" limit of 5 rds? Is a plug in the mag tube (like what you'd do if hunting with...
