Banned In NY
I've posted this pic before.
The Colt Government Model is a banned assault weapon in NY.
The Springfield Armory 1911-A1 is not.
It's because the .38 Super holds 9+1 rounds and the .45 holds 7+1. This is even though the .45 has a military feature the .38 lacks.
A lanyard loop.
It's also done up in military style parkerization and is chambered in a military issued cartridge.
It's not how the gun operates, it's not the finish, it's not the chambering (directly), it's not the manufacturer, it's not the date of manufacture or date of design. It's the number of rounds it holds.
