    Cool Firearms That Are Now Legal

    After all the bad news we've been hearing lately, I thought it might be time for something positive.
    As we all know, these new gun laws were exceptionally poorly written.
    They targeted antique 22 rifles and other classic firearms, many of which were made before 1900.
    There is, however, somewhat of a silver lining to all of this.
    The laws, whether intentionally or unintentionally, have legalised a number of semi-automatic 22 rifles and shotguns. I created this thread to showcase some of the cool and interesting guns we can get now. If you see something you like, let your chosen firearms dealer(s) know. If they get enough requests, they will start bringing this stuff in. I'm quite partial to Burley Arms and NZAR15 for that, due to their low markups.

    I'll start out with a couple of my favourites

    Benelli M4 Entry 14" Pistol Grip and Collapsible Stock 5+1+1 Capacity(Ghost Loaded) 30.5" Overall Length

    CZ 512 Tactical 22 Magnum Pistol Grip and Collapsible Stock 10+1 Capacity Also Available in 22 LR

    There's a whole lot more if you include rifles with pinned folding stocks to make overall length.

    GSG MP40 22 LR

    ISSC MK22

    HK G36 22 LR

    Sig Sauer SIG522

    Beretta ARX160 22 LR

    We can also now attach pistol grip, collapsible, and folding stocks to any other semi auto 22s and shotguns we already have, as long as the overall length is still 30" or more. So feel free to pimp out your Ruger 10/22, Marlin 795, Remington 1100/1187, etc.

    If you have anything you'd like to add to this list, please feel free.
    I think we could all do with some temptation right now...

    Ahhh,I feel so much safer now that we're not allowed "inherently evil" guns but we're allowed all these ones that look like the evil ones.

    Just as an aside,I went into one of the local gun shops recently ,there's a couple of bren guns on the counter.
    the shelves are empty of the now prohibited centrefire semis,but light machine guns are only restricted so we're still allowed them.

    Just to clarify that I understand you (or not) in the case of shotguns with a folding stock, is the mandatory minimum 30 inches measured with the stock opened and locked or folded?

    It was a confusion of ideas between him and one of the lions he was hunting in Kenya that had caused A. B. Spottsworth to make the obituary column. He thought the lion was dead, and the lion thought it wasn't.
