To start with let's explain how the S.A.F.E. Act defines an "Assault Weapon". The law defines an "assault weapon as a semi-automatic rifle (or shotgun) that has the ability to accept a detachable magazine and one of the following characteristics..."A pistol grip, folding, and telescoping stock being listed. Since the Marlin model 60 has a fixed tube-fed magazine it is inherently exempt from the law. Meaning you can have all of those characteristics, just like on your bolt action rifle.
Furthermore, tube-fed 22's are specifically called out as exempt from the 10 round magazine restriction. "Large capacity ammunition feeding device...such term does not include an attached tubular device designed to accept, and capable of operating only with, .22 caliber rimfire ammunition."
While we do not have the legal opinion to say that the HT60 is compliant with any other state laws such as CA, CT, and MD, we can say the laws are similar and we will ship them there. It is your responsibility to know your state laws and what you can and cannot have.
To sum this up as residents of NYS we created the HT60 specifically to meet the undeserved market of the Marlin Model 60 in NYS. You can have all of the features of the HT60 when assembling it on the Marlin Model 60 in New York state. Happy Hunting.
