Here in NYC ANY weapon that takes a magazine is illegal due to the hi-cap limits here. So unfortunately you will not be able to have that anyway at all in NYC’s city limits. SO PLEASE for the love of god don’t try and send it to your address they will lock you upif they catch you. I can't even have a Bolt action Enfield Rifle here in NYC, because it can inturnally load 6rds and yet I legally own 2 pistols that hold 10rds mags... go figure. Just wait untill you get FL state residence bro, I'd hate to see a fellow Soldier get hemmed up.
Also, NYC's nonsensical definition of an "Assault weapon" would also make the AR totally banned.
