For those of you that have M1's, make sure your stripper clips are 1 rnd short of full.
Pardon the slight sidetrack- not to mention my own ignorance- but will an M1 function properly if the en bloc clip is inserted with only 7 rounds in it?

Also, the definition of "Curio or Relic... Ammunition Feeding Device" may allow out-ot-state purchase of M1 clips if owners and the NYSP can come up with a reliable and consistent method of determining whether a simple unmarked sheet metal doohickey is more than 50 years old, and then registering that doohickey.

One other interesting note... as far as I can tell, the "Curio or Relic" provision should still allow the purchase of 32rd "Trommelmagazin" drum mags for Luger-type pistols, since they've been out of production for well over 50 years!
At least until the regs are actually written and you can see what is what... The above is based solely upon how the actual wording of the law is and how courts have, by and large, interpreted those words.
+1, although IANAL either.
