You should never stick anything in the gas tube

It is more likely to cause problems than help in any way

If your gas tube is getting plugged regularly I would change ammo. Especially if you are using the laquer coated steel cased Wolfe stuff.

Let's quit giving this gunloverr advice on how to keep his fictional Ars running. He's a troll. Search his history and see where he's saying in one thread that a woman is not smart enough to use a semiauto pistol and in others saying how he hates people who say a certain gun crap but does just that in the shotgun forum and here. Don't give him the time of day anymore.

NY laws

NY state has it's own "assault rifle" laws (which they interpret to cover the AR-15 family), and I have no doubt NYC has even more of their own.

Before you worry about finding a cheap AR, find out for sure if you can legally posess one, and if there are any special restrictions on it, if you can. You may be allowed to get a permit for one, but only if it does not have "evil" features (like a bayonet lug, or a flash suppressor, or even a detatchable magazine).

After you find out if you can have one, then start looking into getting one.

I guess I'll go into the gun store here, and ask them if they have AR15 for sale and how much. pretty sure if the law dont allow them here, they gun shop here wont sell them...

found out I can have an AR15 if it like the M16A1 or A2 with no flash suppersor.

the law limites it to only one evil feature, and a pistol grip is already one.

I have owned two without any muzzle device. A Dissipator and a 20" rifle.
Both were excellent and very accurate - the rifle length was a better shooter.

I can't afford an AR either, or the high price of the fodder it eats but bought a Bushy M4A3 and overloaded a credit card and will be paying for it monthly for the next 100 years, a small ditto on Ammo although I reload some.

But the bright side, I am proud of that rifle, fire it a few rounds every day out
back in the pasture, love the supurb engineering that developed such a weapon, the different configurations available, and the accuracy. Long live the memory of Mr. Stoner who had the original concept !

And last but not least, living in a free State where I can carry concealed, own so called assualt weapons, and live like Americans were originally intended to live.

A detachable magazine is not an evil feature in NYC?

No, they're simply prohibited. And the application will NOT be approved for ANY AR15 type rifle, regardless of manufacturer.

Its been 3 years. Did you get your Ar-15? Personally, I would have moved from NY. Apparentally, they don't trust their citizens. A criminal would simply drive to another state and buy the AR-15 from a private party. Then they would drive it back to NYC. Don't be surprised it is done all the time. These stupid laws only stop law abiding citizens. They have no affect on criminals. They banned spray paint in Chicago. Who did they stop from buying spray paint? Law abidding citizens. Are the building lining the subway tracks full of graffiti? Hell yes

I have a feeling that the AR 15 type rifle, will one day be as cheap as the SKS use to be.
If you think about it realisticly, every major manufacturer is cranking them out by the thousands, and they are all selling high.
Sooner, or Later, the market will be so flooded with these things, they will become harder to sell. Then Guess What, they will be a dime a dozen.
Im waiting till that time comes, and enjoying the rifles that are being overlooked right now.

I guess I was wrong then, those dang AR 15s and knockoffs, are still outragously high, and selling like water in the destert.
Wish I had bought stock in them could have retired by now.
