Holds true for any firearm/platform for sale in MA.Dans is always on point with the 10mm knowledge !
I did try that and even tried to buy parts directly to convert a stainless P220 in 45 ACP, but couldn't get the parts. I reached out to a custom shop that is known for doing the conversions on P220 to 10mm, but couldn't get a response from them.Perhaps you should ask Sig if they are doing it. I am sure you will get the typical pre-prepared, canned response.
I have heard of it, but don't know of anyone in MASS that does it. ThanksOP, are you familiar with the notion of a "frame transfer" and how MA consumers can use it to obtain non-roster handguns? MA defines a firearm differently than the feds do: if it's not "capable of discharging a projectile", it's not a firearm any more as the Commonwealth defines it. If a gun is disassembled into multiple pieces — this can be as simple as field-stripping it — then no part of it is a "firearm" according to MA and the roster doesn't apply. You still of course need to do a 4473 for any serialized parts, but a MA dealer can transfer a stripped, non-roster pistol to you. The dealer will do this without filing an FA-10. When you take it home and put it back together, you've just "manufactured" a firearm and it'll then be your responsibility to file an FA-10 using the "Registration" workflow. Not all dealers are willing to do this, but if you ask around at a few LGSs you'll probably find one who will.
Thanks. I'm not sure why the P220 10mm doesn't seem to be available here from a reasoning perspective. I see the P220 in 45 ACP very often in shops and in the Legion configuration and other versions, which I would imagine because it has a long-standing reputation and history. I'm not sure if for the 10mm if this is a cost issue because of the testing labs and the AG roster as they probably figure they won't sell as many P220 10mm as they will P226, P320, and P365s. But then again I've seen several P225 for sale, which I can't believe has high sales in Mass, but is a great sidearm. I do have the 1076 which I like, but really would like to see a 5 inch DA/SA 10mm available here. The ones I have been able to handle in shops out of Mass seem like solid pistols like the P220 stainless I have. I really like the 10mm and think the 5 inch barrel and DA/SA platform is something that gets overlooked now a days.Holds true for any firearm/platform for sale in MA.
Other restrictions apply depending on state requirements -LCI,Mag safety,list of approved etc.
I do not believe that SIG USA will deface the slide breech face of P220 R5 10mm & add LCI's,mag safeties for other state compliance.
'tis the reason that I mentioned the 3rd Gen Smith & Wesson 1006/1076 10mm pistols,since they have the MA compliant features...being manufactured in MA.
