Posted on 04/04/2014 8:54:23 PM PDT by progunner
A Missouri-based gun manufacturer announced this week that it will release a line of New York Compliant rifles, a market-based response to the Empire States strict new gun laws.
With the continual trampling of the 2nd Amendment in New York, Black Rain Ordnance is proud to announce their New York Compliant rifles, the group said in a statement on its website. These rifles feature all of the quality and craftsmanship of the standard BRO-lines, but with the added features that allow for legal possession.
Features that make Black Rain Ordnances new rifles compliant with New Yorks guns laws include: No pistol grip, a non-threaded muzzle fixed stock, 10-round low capacity approved magazine and a Lo-Pro gas block without the evil bayonet lug.
We are proud to be an all American Company that produces true Made in the U.S.A. products, the company told The Blaze in an email.
And if Black Rains move to create rifles that comply with New Yorks new guns laws, which have been described as some of the nations toughest, sounds familiar, it should: Theyre not the only company to move in this direction, and stories of such guns have been popping up since May 2013.
In fact, several New York-based gun shops have, for example, offered to replace the grip on non-complaint rifles so that theyre square with states laws.
The modified gun still fires at the same rate and with the same power; the shooter just holds it slightly differently, the Guardian reported. These modified weapons do not have to be registered with the state.
One gun maker in Rochester, N.Y., Just Right Carbines, manufactures modified semi-automatic rifles that comply with the New Yorks Safe Act, which was signed into law by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in January 2013.
Just Right Carbines general manger, Anthony Testa, told the Guardian that New York authorities signed off on the modified rifles, telling him that his products complied with the law.
The Safe Act, which was the result of the 2012 mass shooting in Newtown, Conn., that claimed the life of 27 people, bans the sale of so-called assault weapons and requires that everyone who already owns a rifle categorized as such to register them with the state by 15 April 2014.
The Safe Act singles out add-on features, including bayonet mounts, grenade launchers and, of course, protruding pistol grips.
Another New York company, H&H Firearms, has been working on modifying its semi-automatic rifles to meet state law.
Its basically an AR-15 without the features, a lawyer representing H&H Firearms told the Times Union.
People are champing at the bit for a legal version of the popular rifle, said the companys manager Justin Reickart, adding that the modified rifles look like a paintball gun.
Black Rain did not immediately respond to The Blazes request for comment.
Now I don't know about the rest of you "gunners" here on FR, but the muzzle diameter looks close enough to be .223 but the size of the magazine has me very curious regarding caliber and appears to be of a staggered" design.

This statement also has me curious. Neither here or there though. I also wonder what is depicted on the price tag. I sincerely hope that being compliant does not justify an astronomical cost.
“the muzzle diameter looks close enough to be .223 but the size of the magazine has me very curious regarding caliber and appears to be of a staggered” design.”
Looks to be a .223 with a fluted bull ,standard low capacity double stack magazine. Not a looker IMO.
Fluted bull barrel.
I concur,,,, oh well,,,, guess time will tell
The gun banners only outlawed cosmetic features on the AR-15 they disliked.
Change them and its the same AR-15. Liberals are stupid!
But don’t let them in on it.
Instead of a being a “scary looking assault weapon” it looks like a nerdy paintball gun. Still shoots the same ammo.
New York-compliant AR-15:
Style over substance.
Just as lethal. Still is a damn good shooting rifle. New York liberals actually helped to design a better-looking AR-15!
I’d buy one.
Dip the end of the barrel in pink paint and wear a tie dyed T-shirt with Paintballers Rule and everybody is happy.
It’s unusual looking, but otherwise the same thing as the prohibited rifle.
Anyone who can disregard the esthetics will have to agree it is an AR-type rifle. I’d expect it shoots fine.
I suppose the gun grabbers in NY believe they’ve accomplished something profound.
All they did was ban the “assault style” attachments to the AR-15.
Remove them and you still have a legal stock semi-automatic rifle.
It just doesn’t look like a military-style weapon, that’s all.
“I also wonder what is depicted on the price tag. I sincerely hope that being compliant does not justify an astronomical cost.”
Unfortunately, at the website: “MSRP: $2039” and it is .223 cal.
Sorry - wrong gun!!
Shop around - Chinese-made copies will be cheaper.
But this is good ol’ USA made quality - built to last.
If you live in NYS, no need to buy a new AR-15. You can buy a conversion kit to make yours street-legal.
Also in .308,,,, my youngest daughter just found the specs on it. Thank you....
Is this a semi-auto rifle or an assault weapon? Or a compliant assault weapon?
Its your basic semi-auto rifle minus the “evil” assault weapon features liberals hate.
Its hard to get worked up about it and for the record New York’s advertised “tough” new gun laws still wouldn’t have prevented Adam Lanza’s killing spree.
AR 15s for all, Ping.
I can’t remember when someone went berserk at a school or theater and killed a bunch of people with a bayonet or a grenade launcher.
These stupid laws banning “scary” AR features are retarded.
resembles a MAS49. handy and accurate, but finding 7.5x54 is impossible.
I agree with you also my friend,,,, 101%. I’ve never fired a rifle with that much angle at the grip and I’m sure I would find it somewhat uncomfortable. I’m confident that the good folks in NY will be appreciative. I know very few other Cat. 3 FFL holders up there but I’m sure there will be many (even Cat. 1 holders) that will be stocking them. I must reiterate though that time will tell. Those New Yorkers are following suit with there neighbors in CT and just plain telling their law makers to go spit. Our hearts down here in the Carolina’s are with them.
I am so glad I left New York when I joined the military and never returned.
I live in Texas now. We don’t cotton to such stupidity down here.
NY legal, huh? Well, I’ll have to think about purchasing one. I’m still in mourning over the loss of my previous ordinance in a terrible boating accident...
Actually, the rifle pictured above is not the gun mentioned in the article, but if you consider the rifle shown, it’s a similar stock to say and M1A Thompson 45.
It actually violates one of the prime design features of the AR-15 in that the true AR-15 has a its stock axis exactly in line with the barrel bore. IOW, recoil is STRAIGHT back. Much easier to keep the rifle on target, etc.
When you lower the stock off that axis, the recoil tends to take an upward arc off target as rounds are fired.
The real NY Compliant AR shown later in the thread attempts to regain that design feature by hooking the stock back around the buffer tube but just barely gets there, I’d expect a slight muzzle rise due to recoil.
This one is approved for democrats.
It’s Sooooooooooooooooo Metro, Man!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Will NY police departments be required to use these, or are they allowed to use regular ARs against citizens?
Idiots. You can’t comply with treason.
Thanks for the images.
Ijust wonder if the new design will climb when I convert it to full auto?
You can’t convert to full auto.
Sorry but auto firearms have been banned in the US since 1934.
Oh, man. How did I miss that.
Now, what do I do with the 20 full autos I have in the basement?
I'm assuming that the 20,000 rounds of ammo that I have are still OK to have. Right? ;o)
