Hello, I am new here and am encouraged by the fact that I see other gun owners here fighting for our 2A rights here in California, a place that needs us quite a bit in this day and age.

I came here with the question that if I were to place a for grip such as a


or a


onto the bottom rail of my M1A SOCOM II constitute it as an "Assault Weapon" Under California law? Dose it count as a "froward pistol grip" that if put onto a rifle would have it classified as an "assault weapon"?

Yes, attaching a verticle foregrip like the one's you posted would make your M1A an illegal Assault Weapon. While I personally wouldn't bother, you could attach a magazine locking device to the magazine release of your rifle to achieve the ability to use such a grip, I don't believe there is one on the market though.

If you really want to do it talk to Ian at Irvington Arms, he made a mag lock for his M1.
