I know how you feel my brother,, I live in the ******* State of NY too. Everytime I see a sale of Hi Cap mags or other Verboten items, I want to strangle someone. I have found that it is easier to simply go out of state and buy stuff over the counter. There are several shops in NH that I get most of my "banned" items from,, and there is no sales tax either.
Thing is,, what is the difference between the receiver that you want and an AK reciever,, or an AR or Mauser receiver. The only thing that the 4473 wants to know if its a rifle or pistol receiver.
When it comes to old Hi Caps,,, NYS law says you can have pre-94 mags,, but most companies won't ship. I can understand,, its just a liability thing,, NYS is tring to pass a balistic fingerprint bill,,, that will stop companies from shippin here,,,, too much trouble for S&W to manufacture a "NYS Friendly" Gun,,, they just won't ship. NYS will become a "used" gun state. And they will be priced sky high.
"F" NYS I have seen so much **** done by our NYSP driving down the highway,,, down right illegal and unsafe,,, got no respect anymore,,, too many bridges burnt. Stupid unsafe troopers pulling out in front of parrerby vehicles,,, I saw a old guy almost driven into a guardrail a couple of weeks ago because the cop just HAD to get a speeder,, I was cut off by a trooper last week,, stupid assholes,, and these are the folks that tell me what I can or cannot own???? F em!
