So does that make Thordsen style ARs banned in DE (e.g. Dark Storm’s featureless DS-15)? The language seems to be much broader than the “pistol grip protruding below the action” language the other ban states use. Crazy to think the gun laws in DE nearly as bad as they are in DC now. Hopefully between Bruen and DE’s 2A equivalent this garbage gets taken out to the curb fast.New gun-type iterations have created a specification arms race. (The CA thumbhole stocks and box magazines for instance). It is no surprise they took simpler approach like that in the DE bill. "Mag fed and a grip below the action."
6.Be careful at some of the PA public ranges. They restrict the amount of bullets in a magazine. I think three is their magic number. A buddy of mine bought a Mini 14 and later on he picked up an AK47. He we to the range with his adult son and they had preloaded the magazines at home. He arrived at the shooting range and set up their target and after firing the first couple rounds the warden showed up and told they to unload their weapons and magazines. My friend ended up with a $300.00 fine for having the magazines loaded over the allowed limit. The warden was nice about it as he informed him he could have charged them a per round penalty.
Your not reading the law correctly, anything on the list is barred, any copycat of anything on the list is barred.The DE, law uses the one item on the list of what makes an “assault Weapon.”
One of these items is the detachable magazine.
The last I checked a Remington 7400 and tha Winchester Model of 1907 have detachable magazines, thus they have earned the label of an “assault weapon.”
Thus legal for a DE resident, but it may not leave DE to return, nor may an out of state semi auto detachable magazine center fire rifle enter Delaware.
So that leaves a fixed magazine semi automatic rifle if one wishes to use their semi automatic (out of state rifle) with in Delaware as long as they don’t have a feature like a pistol grip or folding/telescoping stock.
Read it carefully the section that you are refering to is under copycats of banned weaponsNope, it is you that is only reading one section of the law (the old MD section) that is no longer needed because of the newer Connecticut Law section. It refers to Semi Automatic Rifles particularly ones with detachable Magazines.
My HBAR is not permitted in Delaware despite what the old MD section (that automatically is obsolete) in the DE law due to the section than bans all with just one feature.
Another new law pertains to semi automatic pistols bans with their magazines housing outside of the grip area (such as Tec-9’s, Mauser Broomhandles and AR based pistols).
