Obama would say it is because it had a magazine that holds more than 8 rounds and its black and military looking.

Even that's too scary I would trade it in and get a pair of scissors like Janet Napolitano said

Re: This Considered An Assault Rifle?


In NY it is. You can only carry 7 rounds for now, after one yr you must turn in the mag in favor of a smaller mag. If the manufacturer does not make a smaller mag then you are SOL!

That gun according to gun banners has a lot wrong with it, 1st it is black like a scary assault weapon, 2nd it has a huge 10 round mag and 3rd it is semi-automatic so it can fire very fast "in the hands of bad people it somehow becomes fully automatic" .

I have the exact same 10-22 with the same setup. A very fun plinker and cheap to shoot all day. I've added a red dot at 45 degrees at the front barrel band. It is NOT an asualt rifle though. If you add the following to any detachable magazine weapon then it becomes an asualt rifle: a pistol grip, forward grip, folding, detachable, or telescoping stock, barrel shroud, or threaded barrel. This is based on the new/pending Feinstein law. Also you can't ever sell or trade that high cap mag, transfer becomes illegal.

Wait until the gun banners figure out that technically it does have what we consider a pistol grip.

Any gun used in a crime is an assault weapon, no crime no assault no assault no crime.

That's what I run too, I bought half a dozen real rugger made high caps a few months ago. No jambs, no issues.
