Just got the new American Rifleman and there's an ad for Rossi's new Mare's Leg.... Oh baby!
Don't think it's NY legal (would be too much fun I guess). I figure it will be illegal because of weight or someother kind of horsepuky

Your thoughts on legality?

Thanks

If it is manufactured as a pistol, it doesn't need the authorization from BATFE that converting a rifle requires (as far as I know). If the barrel is less than 16" and doesn't have a shoulder stock it is a pistol, and shouldn't present a problem

No reason for it not to be NY legal, it's not a semi auto so weight isn't an issue.

Taurus was making them, but so over priced it wasn't even funny. (half the gun shouldn't cost 2-3 times the price). Now Rossi is making them at what seems to be a quite reasonable price. I sure don't need one but it sure is tempting. Not very practical but probably a good deal of fun. It fits within the price cap of "novelty guns" for me.

thanks for the info. 12inch barrel, stock cut off .... has got to be something. I would prefer a full stock but either way it's got me with my eyes popping out!

Hey guys, I know this is an older post but just thought you might get a kick out of the Mare's Legs I made (in my computer) the first one is an 1894 Winchester and the other is an Hi-Point 995. My son-in-laws says I have too much time on my hands. what do you think.?

No problem nightday I'm new here and it seems like I missed allot, while at least I got the hang of the date stamp thing and still not answering questions that were asked last year.

Well I always asked myself if they could have made the Hi-Point any uglier, here's the answer


Not knocking your art work but the gun itself
