I don't know if a similar post has already been put up on this site, but I thought I'd bring it to the attention of folks in CA that you can, in
fact, build a fully functional AR-15/AK-47 with all of the features that you want with only one slight modification and be well within the law.
I don't know much about other state's laws, but this info may be helpful for want to be builders in constrictive states.
First - California State law prohibits all AR style lower receivers, BUT, they were recently forced in court to LIST the makes and models of banned
receivers - meaning that companies are putting out lowers that are not on the list.
Stag, Spike's, Oly - are just a few.
Second - If your rifle has detachable magazine you cannot also have a flash suppressor, pistol grip or collapsible stock.
BUT CA. was brought to court again and forced to define "non detachable". It was defined as stated in "CCR 11 5469 (a). A rifle equipped with a
magazine lock requires a tool
to remove the magazine from the firearm. Therefore, it is configured with a "fixed magazine" that is not
legally considered "detachable".
is can be considered a bullet tip.
The Prince 50 and Prince Bullet button is easy to install and changes your push button mag eject into one that is "fixed" under state law. You
can't eject the magazine with a finger, you have to insert a tool, such as a bullet tip or pen tip into a hole in the button, which will eject the
This means that you can have all the "evil" features - flash suppressor, collapsible stock, pistol grip, etc... if you just install a bullet button
(or similar mag lock)
Third - no way around the 10 round magazine clip capacity law yet
I'd include a picture of my build, but my upper hasn't come from CMMG yet. I have a completely assembled and legal lower however.
The only difference between a California AR-15 and a New Mexico AR-15 is the bullet button. Simple solution.
