Yeah I was just reading that sub forum and updated my OP, Thanks.
The idea of simply adding a VFG and poof its legal and can have evil features is a hard one to wrap my head around.
Still not exactly sure what a 16"+bbl and brace AR is if it does not have a VFG.
Well, I guess that pretty much eliminates the desire to swap and go from pistol->rifle->pistol or pistol->other >pistol but I'm assuming pistol->other >pistol would still be legal as long as its always in the other configuration in NJ.
Question 1... aren’t you building one of those non-NFA Firearms? Over 26” OAL, add a vertical grip and you are good to go (judging a pistol brace). Remember, a brace is not a stock... can’t pick/choose definitions.
Question 2... I believe you are in the same boat. I just built a 11.5” AR pistol, without the muzzle device, and with a carbine buffer tube... I was just under 26”. Like less than 1/4” under. If you add the vertical grip to your build, should be fine (magazines notwithstanding).
Federally, you technically would be good. But if you built it as an AR pistol (not the Firearm configuration), I’d say you’d be in possession of an assault weapon in NJ. No stock, technically built as a pistol (your description), and hitting multiple evil features. Could it be proven? Really unsure about that... but just how I see it.
A shotgun or rifle to private land to shoot is not an issue..BUT... be aware of the NYSafe Act...
Don't bring your NJ compliant AR to ny...cause it is not compliant with ny current law.
What does, what is legal to do in PA, have to do with what is legal in NY?
There is at least one exemption, for competition. It needs to be an approved match (not sure who approves them) and you need to bring with you a copy of the match bulletin, and possibly proof of entry. Under those circumstances, and assuming the gear is NY legal, you can bring a handgun into the state (but not into NYC) for the match.
