Nice... The official sticker definitely confirms the non-assault weapon status. What kind of loopholes and paperwork did you have to jump though to get that sticker? I'm assuming it requires an NFA stamp?

No NFA guns allowed in New Jersey.

It is also illegal to have an older Marlin 60 because the magazine holds more than 15 rounds of .22 LR.

But doesn't that pistol grip make it into a fully automatic ak47? To think these things are running rampant in the streets!

Only in New York, where one evil feature is enough to make it an assault weapon.

New Jersey requires two evil features to make you into a felon.

You can't have a Marlin? REALLY? You would think it's Soviet Russia!

Nice. Weight & bbl length?

And you forgot:
No front sight
No quad rail
No forward p-grip
No light or laser

Gotta lose the bipod though, to make it truly non-threatening. I mean, you DO realize that that bipod alone will cause a blissninny hoplophobe to wet themselves reflexively in fear, dontcha?

Ha ha. Normally I would agree. But those high see-through sights end up being "normal" height on an AR. Not overly pretty but they do work and are very light.

I don't like the rear sling loop.
Too easy to scratch other guns
I am told it is part of the stock

DUDE - Great accuracy!

Many I love the .243 win round. You've got a winner there! That's not easy to do with just 4x at 100. I like at LEAST 9 or 10 x when trying to do small groups at 100.
