The reason the SIG MCX is prohibited is because it is considered a "copycat weapon" which means it has at least two of the three evil features (1. folding stock; 2. a grenade launcher or flare...

No. You do not need to specifically mention SBRs because they are a subset of rifles in general. What makes a select fire ambiguous is how to apply the semiautomatic requirement. Does it refers to a...

I would say a fully automatic SBR would not meet the definition of a "copycat weapon" you cited although a select fire version could be ambiguous due to the ability to fire semiautomatically.

There was no "legislative intent" to subject SBRs to OAL requirements. It happened because there was no definition of rifle in the section and SBRs happen to be rifles.
