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

 follows:
   2.  "Imitation  weapon"  means  any  device or object made of plastic,
 wood, metal or any other material which substantially duplicates or  can
 reasonably  be perceived to be an actual firearm, air rifle, pellet gun,
 or "B-B" gun, INCLUDING AN ATTACHMENT TO AN  ELECTRONIC  DEVICE;  unless
 such  imitation  weapon (a) is colored other than black, blue, silver or
 aluminum, (b) is marked with a non-removable orange stripe which  is  at
 least one inch in width and runs the entire length of the barrel on each
 side  and the front end of the barrel, and (c) has a barrel at least one
 inch in diameter that is closed for a distance of not less than one-half
 inch from the front-end of its barrel with the same  material  of  which
 the  imitation  weapon  is made. "Imitation weapon" does not include any
 nonfiring replica of an antique  firearm,  the  original  of  which  was
 designed,  manufactured  and  produced prior to eighteen hundred ninety-
 eight.
   § 2. This act shall take effect on the sixtieth  day  after  it  shall
 have become a law.
