Are pistol caliber AR carbines legal to transfer in MA? Angstadt Arms in particular
Even if "AR-pattern"Do they make a 16" barrel version? If so then it's just a question of whether it's AR-pattern, those are hard to find cause of the AG.
If it's the pistol version sold in free states, then it's illegal in Mass due to AWB, and you'd have to SBR it to make it legal.
Are you saying that I could not buy a 9mm Noveske lower and SBR it?Even if "AR-pattern"
You are correct, you need to abide by the AWB as written in the law. pistol config PCC are unlikely to be lawful because of the AWB. Rifle config need to limit evil features
- There is no Healey, pre-Healey, etc. She held a press conference
- Should you care, a 9mm AR-pattern rifle still passes her bullshit tests. Blow back. non-interoperability of components, etc
The point is that you HAVE to SBR it. You can’t build it as a pistol with a brace. Caliber is irrelevant.
Because of the AGs bullshit exict it depends on the inbounding FFL. Some won't touch anything AR related others would do a .22 or a PCC no problem.Are pistol caliber AR carbines legal to transfer in MA? Angstadt Arms in particular
That's long dead. Someone killed that. File away.
I believe this was only for a brief time and is no longer the case. Healy means nothing legally, except to frightened dealers. But I’m sure you can do a little searching on NES to confirm.
They are NOT asking for proof of Healey. They don’t give one f*** what a BS fake law press conference means because they are FEDERAL. Moreover you don’t even need to show them EFA10 because a lower is a lower not a firearm. Not a barrel length. Not registrable since it doesn’t have a barrel length. Not a rifle. Not a gun. Not an assault weapon. CANCEL HEALEY. HANDS UP, DONT HEALEY. BLACK RIFLES MATTER. NO HEALEY WITHOUT REPRESENTATION. GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME RE-ELECTED HEALEY. UNITED WE STAND HEALEY WE FALL.
As long as it passes the features test, it’s legal. If someone is willing to transfer/sell it to you, do what makes you happy.This is a 16", 9mm, AR-pattern carbine, not a pistol. I was told that since its a pistol caliber, it is legal to transfer and I want to confirm if that that's right.
