NY HELP NEEDED for Scorpion or Mamba purchase



Log in to see fewer ads
Is there anyone here who has bought a Mamba or Scorpion that was subject to the NY SAFE act? I am advised by a friend run Suffolk PD that as long as the compensator is permanently affixed to the barrel. This is done by having a gunsmith drill through the knurled threaded attachment mechanism into the threads of the barrel and then welding a pin into place. I am advised that this will ensure compliance. Now, when I asked Scott Volquartsen to do this for me he said he does NOT do it. That the gun is sent to an FFL dealer in my area and that they must turn it over to a local gunsmith to do the job.
Has anyone had this done? Did it work for compliance? What about the reference on the VQ website..."It all starts with our LLV Competition Upper. Available in a 4.5 or 6 barrel length, it features a stainless steel barrel (with stainless steel breech) housed in an aluminum shroud. This design provides match grade accuracy in a lightweight package." Would this description of a "Shroud" knock it out? Is there a similar "shroud" on the Scorpions LLV as there is on the Mamba LLV?
I am recently retired and my old wife and her old man (me) would like to target shoot. I want to buy two of these. It would be a shame to buy them if I can't take delivery.

Finally, since I am asking questions, what grip would you all recommend for a woman with small hands.

Thank you for any help you can provide
Ray

Stupid question but why do you want the compensator? You can get an upper without threads. If you really wanted more weight you can get a rail on the bottom of the barrel to attach weight.

I'd look into a Scorpion without threads. I haven't seen them make the LLV4 (which is what they did with the Mamba, just building off of Ruger frames like anyone else could do) in a non-threaded version.

I was hoping fro a reply from someone in NY. I am not interested in a treadless barrel. I want the compensator to reduce muzzle jump for competitive shooting. I think if we were talking to a competition shooter we would not be asking why they want a compensator. They are designed with a specific purpose in mind and quite frankly, as mentioned in my post, as long as they are permanently affixed as described, they should be legal. Kindly re-read so you can see what my objective is. Alas, it looks like there is no one from NY who has gone through this. I will be checking with some local gun shops on this as well.
