    New mentioned laws means no chassis rifles?

    I know it's too early to say yet... but Jacinda has gone and said all attachments that create an MSSA will also be banned, so does this mean MDT chassis or rifles like the RPR and TAC A1 are now gone too?

    She mentions attachments that create an MSSA... example being free standing pistol grips and adjustable length stocks. Sure it's on a bolt action in this case, but it can be used to create an MSSA.

    I'll say it again... she said attachments that create an MSSA, meaning free standing pistol grips and adjustable length stocks etc. Sure a chassis rifle isn't an MSSA, but it contains parts that can be used on an MSSA.

    I'm with you, something I was wondering about too. It was stated that any parts that can be used to make an mssa would be banned. So mags for a Mossberg MVP would fall into this as they could also be used in an AR. I think some of the conversions for the Howas take AR mags too.

    Again the parts that could be used to convert a firearm to e-cat will be banned. That is a proposal for upcoming legislation.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    Magazines are going to be a problem.

    If it is an AR type magazine that is 5 rounds then surely it's still good?

    Yea that is how I heard it, any ar style butt stocks etc would be banned which would make chassis style rifles banned, also that would stop the loop hole of having a 22 upper and lower, the lower could theoretically be used to make a mssa, it could mean a ban on any 22s that take any AR parts, it's very wishy washy wording at presant and doesn't make allot of sense. Are glock mags now banned as they can be used in some mssa's ?

    What if those stocks or grips are permanently fixed?

    We will have to wait and see I guess.

    i assume it's more towards parts that make a rifle into an MSSA as in makes it semi auto or turns a fixed mag semi into a detachable mag semi.

    If you have an SKS then buy a stock that features a detachable magazine over 5 rounds then that's an MSSA part, right? Will a pistol grip on an SKS with a fixed magazine change it to an MSSA?
