No forward assist???

Is this one of the items NY specifically banned.

The gun is ugly IMHO.

I think the WASR 10 and all its ugly wood and dremeled mag well is better looking than that thing.

It doesn't have an ejection port dust cover either. DPMS makes a Sportical upper that lacks these parts.

No issues with forward assist or dust cover, just that that model doesn't have them.

The WASR would be considered an assault weapon in NYS because of the pistol grip.

Hence the idiocy of the law. An AR with a pistol grip and no other "evil" features (bayo lug, flash suppressor, muzzle break, collapsible stock, forward pistol grip, or grenade launcher) is an assault weapon. An AR without a pistol grip, but otherwise completely identical is not an assault weapon, even though it has the exact same functionality, lethality, and accuracy.

And the complete lunacy is that if an AR had ALL of those evil features, it doesn't make it any more deadly. They'd outlaw the AR15, and all semi-auto shotguns and rifles, but they can't, so they saddle us with this BS.

I'd like to build an AR in the near future. I'll probably just make it side charging and not put a gas tube in it, which makes it not a semi-auto, and hence it cannot be an assault weapon, so I can have all the evil features I want and it doesn't fall under the SAFE act. I just have to hand action the bolt every time.

Necessity is the mother of invention. Ugly? Yes very ugly but it beats not being able to have one.

To normal people, the ridiculousness of banning those certain features is obvious. The idiots who drafted and passed those stupid laws in NY are not by any means normal. I bet those same morons are scheming to include the uglied up AR now too.
