    1    Section  1.  Subdivision 2 of section 871 of the general business law,

    3  follows:
    4    2.  "Imitation  weapon"  means  any  device or object made of plastic,
    5  wood, metal or any other material which substantially duplicates or  can
    6  reasonably  be perceived to be an actual firearm, air rifle, pellet gun,
    7  or "B-B" gun, INCLUDING AN ATTACHMENT TO AN  ELECTRONIC  DEVICE;  unless
    8  such  imitation  weapon (a) is colored other than black, blue, silver or
    9  aluminum, (b) is marked with a non-removable orange stripe which  is  at
   10  least one inch in width and runs the entire length of the barrel on each
   11  side  and the front end of the barrel, and (c) has a barrel at least one
   12  inch in diameter that is closed for a distance of not less than one-half
   13  inch from the front-end of its barrel with the same  material  of  which
   14  the  imitation  weapon  is made. "Imitation weapon" does not include any
   15  nonfiring replica of an antique  firearm,  the  original  of  which  was
   16  designed,  manufactured  and  produced prior to eighteen hundred ninety-
   17  eight.
