IMPORTANT UPDATE - NEW YORK STATE
We wrote a letter to NYS Police Counsel's Office back in May 2018 requesting in writing guidance regarding the legality of the Tier5® MBC®. To this date we have not received an official response in writing. After speaking with NYS Police Counsel’s Office, they indicated that they do not have an official position as to the legality of the Tier5® MBC®. In addition, they stated that they do not provide approvals for any NYS compliant devices and simply referred us to the current written law as they did over a year ago. Based on the written law, NYS definition of an assault weapon, contacts with different law enforcement agencies and nationally recognized firearms experts and the determination and legal opinion of the International Firearms Specialist Academy (IFSA), we believe that the Tier5® MBC® is a compliant modification under the NY SAFE Act. Several of our dealers have made similar inquiries and/or discussed this with their contacts in NYS. They too have received similar information and have continued selling the Tier5® MBC® as a compliant modification. If you have or receive information contrary to this from any NYS official or law enforcement officer, please get their contact information and their position in writing so we can address it directly with their office. Please share with us any information from any NYS official or law enforcement agency regarding the Tier5® MBC® so we can compile the information if further discussion of this issue with NYS is necessary. Again based on information we received from NYS officials, law enforcement and firearms experts, we believe the Tier5® MBC® is a compliant modification under the NY SAFE Act and will continue to sell it as such.
