"NEW HANDGUNS THAT YOU CANNOT PURCHASE
IN MASSACHUSETTS"


We are constantly asked "Can I buy a new (Manufacturer's name/ model) in this state?"

Here is just a PARTIAL listing of new firearms that licensed
Massachusetts residents
CANNOT purchase from a dealer in this state
because they do not comply with the MA Consumer Protection
regulations and/or the 1998 Gun Control laws.

Handguns must meet the requirement of BOTH the 1998 Gun Control LAWS and
940 CMR Consumer Protection regulations. Some handguns are legal to sell under the regs only
and some only under the laws. They must comply with BOTH to be legal to sell.

If you have any questions regarding the future availability of the items listed
below in MA compliant configuration, please contact the manufacturers
directly since we don't know what their plans are.

For a link to the MA AG's site concerning these regulations please visit our REGULATIONS page.

All dealers in MA must follow the regulations without exceptions.

For specific legal questions regarding the Consumer Protection regulations please call the
Office of the Attorney General in Boston. We are not qualified to answer questions regarding
the interpretation of these regs and laws.

The folks at Magnum Research have emphatically told us that they don't plan on ever
submitting their handguns for MA certification. 

 

On May 12th, 2005 (or was it 2004?) Glock announced that they are going to offer MA compliant models. On or about June 30th, new Glock pistols were removed from the MA market due to a difference of opinion between Glock and the MA Attorney General's office over the loaded chamber indicator. News releases from the A.G.'s office are on the Glock page..

Springfield Armory handguns will not be available in Massachusetts. The factory has said..."WE HAVE NO INTENTION OF GOING THROUGH THE MASSACHUSETTS CERTIFICATION PROCESS because the laws and regulations are not clear". Update 10/16/2009: We have heard that rumors that Springfield Armory is interested in getting some of their handguns certified for sale in MA. I hope that do but I've heard this before and nothing has ever happened. The process is not that hard. S&W certifies handguns for MA all the time...which we greatly appreciate.

As you know, we can sell the Seecamp .32 acp pistols.

The .380 is not available here in MA yet but Larry Seecamp is a very nice person and has told us that he will submit them for MA certification as soon as he can catch up with his backorders around the country.

Thanks Larry!

LES BAER 1911 PREMIER II 5" MODEL $1600
Les Baer's Premier II has become the industry standard to which all other factory or custom built 1911s are compared. The 5" long Government Model (pictured above) is the best single stack competition pistol you'll find in America -- the best quality, the best value and the best performance. No wonder so many of them show up at IPSC Limited Class amd competitive target matches. The Premier II� is even guaranteed to shoot 3" groups at 50 yards! We've sold so many in the USA and abroad, the Premier II� has become the flagship of our line. It performs like a million bucks but it costs a whole lot less. For tech specs click here: Premier Il Specs

LES, PLEASE SEND 5 PREMIER II's TO A TEST LAB. FOUR SEASONS WILL SPLIT THE COST WITH YOU! WE HAVE MANY CUSTOMERS WHO WANT TO BUY PURCHASE WHAT WE CONSIDER TO BE THE BEST 1911 STLYE PISTOL AVAILABLE. WE WOULD BOTH RECOUP THE COST OF TESTING IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME.THE GUN BUSINESS IS ALIVE AND WELL IN MASSACHUSETTS.

The CONCEPT V is the same as above except in all stainless. $1700

Please keep in mind that these are TRUE CUSTOM GUNS that are built to order. Les has decided to keep his low production to maintain the quality control that makes these one of the best in the world. They are well worth the wait!
The new Les Baer Custom Thunder Ranch 1911. $1599

Les Baer custom builds his 1911s entirely in his own state-of-the art facility in the USA, and he builds them from his own forged frames and slides that are heat treated for toughness and hand assembled for a perfect fit. Baer builds 1911s with a well earned reputation for uncompromising quality and unerring accuracy, but they're all realistically priced so they deliver outstanding value.

So, Clint Smith specified the features he wanted and Les Baer built it. Then Les engraved the Thunder Ranch logo on the slide, and gave each pistol a special serial number with
DDC9S.GIF (8370 bytes)Les Baer Premier II, LBC sights, tactical package, extended safety, 1 1/2" groups at  50 yds.The 1 1/2" accuracy guarantee makes this THE ULTIMATE competitive target pistol.Our price was: $1688

Custom Target - Standard features of the Custom plus the Kimber adjustable sight. Ideal for shooters
who use a pistol for competition. As with all pistols in the Custom family it has a checkered flat
mainspring housing, lowered and flared ejection port, and oversized firing pin stop that

Any KAHR ARMS pistols?

Yes! The PM9 sub-compact 9mm pistol and the Auto Ordnance 1911A1 are both legal to sell in MA. Kahr has told us that more MA models will be available in the future. Great news. Thanks!

SPRINGFIELD ARMORY.

Even though this pistol has extra safeties, a loaded round indicator, many other safety features that would make this MA compliant....the factory has told us that they have no intention of certifying any of their guns for sale in MA.

The arrogant tone of the Springfield Armory representative that I spoke with on the phone may as well said to me...  "We can't be bothered with your state".  Maybe I'm being a little over-sensitive but that's what if felt like.

We don't like Taurus products due to terrible customer service experiences that we've had. However, it doesn't matter since we can't sell them anyway.
Wilson Custom Firearms

These folks have told us that they "Don't want anything to do with Massachusetts sales" since they don't understand the regs and laws and "don't want any potential legal problems. We don't need the aggravation" END QUOTE


When we could sell them, these were purchased by many law enforcement personnel as back-ups.

Taurus will not certify any of their handguns for sale in MA.

Why?

As with every NAA Mini-Revolver, the hammer need not rest on an empty chamber. Using the original half-way notch cylinder, the hammer may rest safely and securely without chance of accidental discharge.

Like all NAA Mini-Revolvers, they are covered by a lifetime warranty against defects in material and workmanship. The stability and ease of firing has made this gun a favorite with the ladies as well..
