Hello, I was wondering if I can put a 90/22 P90 stock on a 10/22. Or even an archangel kit on a 10/22. While keeping it FID legal in ma.

An semi-automatic rifle that is not a large capacity weapon (read FID eligible) would only become a large capacity weapon if it were either:
(1) paired with a large capacity ammunition feeding device OR
(2) it met the definition of an assault weapon (regardless of the capacity of any ammunition feeding device which may accompany it)

I believe the 10/22 to be non FID compliant. Ask Carl at 4 Seasons.

Stock it is FID compliant and intentionally so by those in power. Carl is wrong . . . he applies the "if a large-capacity 3rd party mag exists, it is large capacity" theory.

On the other hand, black letter of the law . . . EVERY semi-auto with an external mag is large capacity. It just isn't interpreted that way (except by some dealers) as the wording of the law sucks and results in "unintended consequences"!

IMO, it's not as cut and dry anymore, as they CAN (and do, to most States) ship directly from Ruger with factory "large capacity" magazines.

There are two critical sections under Title 501 of the Code of Massachusetts Regulations that relate to the inclusion of firearms, rifles, and shotguns on the statutorily designated rosters. 501 CMR 7.02 includes numerous definitions. Three are of specific interest. One is the definition of a large capacity weapon- which remains the same as in MGL c. 140 s. 121. The other is the term "readily modifiable to accept a large capacity feeding device" which is defined to mean "...any firearm, rifle, or shotgun immediately capable of being altered so as to accept a large capacity feeding device ... provided however that said feeding device is fully or partially inserted into the weapon or attached thereto, or is under the direct control of the person who also has direct control of a weapon capable of accepting said feeding device." A third critical term of art defined in that regulation is "capable of accepting a large capacity feeding device" which requires two elements be met- (1) that the weapon be capable of accepting a large capacity feeding device without modification AND (2) that the feeding device be partially/fully inserted or attached to the firearm OR be under the direct possession of the person possessing the weapon 501 CMR 7.10, which provides that weapons not on the large capacity firearms but which are semi automatic and are capable of accepting or are readily modifiable to accepting a large capacity feeding device conditioned on the definition of those terms in 501 CMR 7.02.

And almost every handgun is too. The intent was "if it was shipped to civilian market in MA at any time" otherwise as I stated, almost every handgun would be large-capacity and a fair number of rifles/shotguns that were developed post-9/13/2004.

But anyone is free to interpret the law and CMR to suit their purpose. It's just if they went after the 10/22, there would be hundreds if not thousands of young FID holders ripe for arrest and persecution just based on FA-10s filed.
