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?
