Well I just looked the law up and after all the back and forth in here we seem to have forgotten about the OP's original question.
Is an S&W 617 considered an assault weapon and can you put 10 rounds in it.
Well looking at the law and the FAQ's the state has put out about it.


See here; http://www.governor.ny.gov/2013/gun-reforms-faq

It specifically states that revolvers as a class are exempt from the law and even lists the 617 as NOT on the assault weapons list.
So it would appear that owning one and loading 10 rounds in it is OK.

One thing not addressed in the bill is magazines that fit two different types of guns like the banned tactical AR version of the 10/22.
The same magazine also fits the not banned standard 10/22 and the bolt action 77/22.
Gonna be fun to see how they twist themselves in knots trying to figure that one out.

I think it doesn't matter if it fits multiple guns that are or aren't banned, just what the capacity is. Current 10rd mags are ok if loaded to 7, anything 10 or more will be illegal once this takes effect regardless of it also fits a non-banned gun.

Of course I can't be certain of anything with the way this thing is worded...

Mags

It's noteworthy that all of the posters here are concerned about obeying the law, however misguided it may be. Which only goes to prove that lawbiding citizens obey the law and lawbreakers don't and aren't worried about the new restrictions.

A very accurate observation.
They couldn't give a rats rear end about a minor misdemeanor charge for having too many bullets in the magazine.
When the primary reason for them having a gun is because they intend to use it to commit a felony or are already committing a one by just having one.

If revolvers are exempt, S&W needs to respond with a 20 round .22 revolver built on the X frame.

Seven round magazines makes me think a Colt 1911 guy proposed that. There is even a specific reference to a .22 caliber rotary magazine rifle as being exempt from the law. Hello Ruger 10/22 owner who helped draft the law.
Where is the "specific reference" to a .22 caliber rotary magaine rifle as being exempt from the law? The only reference I saw, was the exemption of .22 tubular magazines.

You can always buy an earlier model 6 shot 617/17. I've had several of both and The six shot flavors had smoother actions and more readily available speedloaders IMHO.
