Black powder hunting rifle in NYC


Recommended Posts

Do muzzleloaders need to be registered in NYC? It takes a bit of extra paperwork to register arms in the city and I'm happy to skip it if it isn't required by law. I'm finding conflicting answers online. Anyone have easy access to the actual legal guidelines/requirements?

Thanks

I thought anything larger then a rubber band and a paperclip had to be registered...  

Doesn't surprise me that the info isn't easily found online.

Everything I’m reading is saying there is no FFL transfer required for them in NYS. I purchased mine this past fall from someone who would have known and done it the legal way, and he just brought it to the house. 
*I just saw you said NYC, sorry, I have no clue on that one.

I called the NYPD registry office a few years ago and was told they need to be registered. But the woman I was talking with had no idea what a ML was and may have just defaulted to "all long guns need to be registered".

Sorry I don't have a better answer.

Upstate a black powder arm can be purchased and delivered to your door. I have done it several times, most recently two months ago. Same for black powder and primers (you will have a hazardous shipping fee). Black powder pistols are another matter. Last I knew you did NOT need to license them unless you had components to load and shoot it.

Below is some information that details the ownership of "antique" or ML firearms. I am not sure of the source, but you can always back reference it. It sounds like you do not need to register black powder firearms (unless a loaded pistol/revolver).
