The massively silly New York gun law just passed outlaws ammunition feeding devices holding more than eight cartridges that can be removed from the gun without the uses of a tool. Guess which of the two firearms pictured at the left is still legal. Both hold eight rounds. The Smith & Wesson 627 revolver holds eight .357 Magnum cartridges, but because a screwdriver is required to remove its magazine (the cylinder), it’s not illegal.
The standard magazine for the Kimber 1911 .45 ACP pistol holds eight rounds, and new, ungrandfathered magazines will be verboten. Fortunately, 7-round magazines (the earlier standard for the GI .45) are commonly available. BTW, Kimber pistols are made in Yonkers, New York.
UPDATE–Both of these handguns fire one round with each pull of the trigger. There’s no functional difference between shooting a double-action revolver and a semiautomatic pistol.
However, the speedloader commonly used with this revolver will now be illegal as a removable feeding device.
