I love it! Always wanted A Saiga and figured I was SOL till I left Ct.



Good to hear.

I love my Russian 'Other' - 7.62x39 works flawless in both suppressed super and subsonic ammo.

I should have turned my banned by name AK into an other, would that have been possible? Hmmm.

I dont think you you can build an already made rifle into an other...... tried that and it was a no go

That would be too easy. You get my PM on the G23 upper?

Troy 12.5"
Stag 308 12.5"

The 308 with, and without a Surefire Warden attached.  Sorry for the two videos being vertical, a buddy from took them.

Good info about Troy’s Non-NFA “Other” products on a NJ site.
I’ve seen variations- my 9mm Other from a year or two ago is definitely an M5 and came with the SOCC rail.

New 5:56 ones on-the-shelf have a variation of rails (SOCC or just MLOK Battelrail) and more/less extras (trigger guard, muzzle device,  etc). I checked and definitely Rosco barrels on the newest 5.56.

Interesting reading linked off that site confirming what we conform to here in CT- a letter from NJ state PD specifically examining the state (NJ) and Federal compliance of the Troy and DSI non-NFA "Others".

The letter is actually pretty good.  Same logic/argument applies here... but would be nice is CT state police issued a similar letter.

Quote from M1A_All_Day (from another thread):
"Stay within those specs and the firearm is still classified as an “other” in Connecticut.

Yes, “until it’s not”. These are legal now- go enjoy instead of coming up with reasons to worry."

...AND, INDEED, ENJOY WE GO!

(Mags are 10-rounds CT-compliant.)
