Winter Park, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- ARMagLock is a new patent pending AR-15 fixed magazine & release solution that helps New York, California, Connecticut and newly proposed Rhode Island owners to avoid assault weapon firearm registration within their respective states, and stay compliant with the laws.
New York and Connecticut laws have already been passed and the California Legislature is on the verge of passing a law mandating registration of all assault weapons.
On October 14, 2014, SB 47 will require that all assault weapons owners register their firearms with the CA DOJ, to include all firearms with the magazine locking devices requiring a tool or bullet to remove the magazine. The registration shall contain a description of the firearm that identifies it uniquely, including all identification marks, the full name, address, date of birth, and thumbprint of the owner, and any other information that the department may deem appropriate.
These new laws apply to rifles that do not have a fixed magazine. The laws define “fixed magazine” as an ammunition feeding device contained in, or permanently attached to, a firearm in such a manner that the device cannot be removed without disassembly of the firearm action. AR-15 owners now have to disassemble their firearm action in order to release the magazine. This wording essentially renders other magazine locking devices useless.
Just to be sure there is no confusion, the new CA law states (b) (1) Any person who, from January 1, 2001, to December 31, 2013, inclusive, lawfully possessed an assault weapon that does not have a fixed magazine, as defined in Section 30515, including those weapons with an ammunition feeding device that can be removed readily from the firearm with the use of a tool, shall register the firearm before July 1, 2015. See here for exact wording of the law:
The ARMagLock turns your firearm into a “fixed magazine” firearm that can not release the magazine unless you pull the takedown pin, and separate the upper and lower receivers, thus “disassembling” the firearm action. Once the receivers are minimally separated, the ARMagLock can be engaged to release the magazine.
Courtney Harris is the original inventor of the ARMagLock concept and owner of the patent application US 13/803,966, which was filed on 3/14/13 and publicly published on 10/17/13, which can be verified on the on the Google Patents website at: http://www.google.com/patents/US20130269232.
Mr. Harris has saved many AR-15 owners from registration and was quoted as stating, “I invented and engineered the fixed magazine lock & release kit for the AR-15 with the sole purpose of saving all of my fellow AR-15 buddies the heartache of having to submit every last piece of their personal information to the government, just so they can own something that is a constitutional right. With my patent pending product, AR-15 owners now feel much more confident they are conforming to new fixed magazine laws, and not have to register their firearm”.
