Why is this G3 A3 style stock prohibited from being shipped to CA?

I have seen this from multiple vendors... With this installed the 18" barrelled rifle will still be over 30". I am confused :TFH:

Because places like CheaperThanDirt routinely play "cover your butt" and, while doing so, their policies concerning states like CA tend to cover many more items than are actually banned, and thus they label many legal items as forbidden.

JLD does similar "wierdness". In this case, it's not prohibited by law in CA but it is in others:

I can only assume that in most cases, unless you know what you're doing, replacing the normal A2 stock with the A3 stock would result in a total length that is less than 30". In my case, I'm building an HK33 and adding a 4" flash hider to the barrel. So when I do attach my A3 stock to it, it'll still be a total of 33" when collapsed. I think CTD is erring on the side of caution in this case.

Does adding the A3 stock to a 16" PTR-91 carbine make it less than 30"? I know with the standard stock A2 it is 39"...

No, it is just over 30".

Funny...I have one of those sitting in my misc. gun parts bin. Can't imagine ever using it, but just can't get myself to get rid of it.

ctd won't ship any folders to ca. even ati shotforce, which ati specifies in it's advertising, is ca compliant. they're using the constructive posession theory.

CDT won't ship any "assault weapon" parts to CA.

I will not buy anything from them. There are other places to spend my dirty, sweaty, CA money.

Yeah they suck when it comes to gun parts for CA period.

The problem is wider than just one company being Buttheads. The exact wording that these people use starts popping up with other companies. Other places read this and go---oh no what do they know that I don't and then they cut and paste to their own website. I have tried emailing them several times to the effect of would you please change the wording form "cannot" to "our policy" or "we will not"--but of course nothing happens. To say simply "cannot" is deceptive. These cataloge places are few and they all stay up on what each other are doing.

For instance sportsman's guide had a prohibition saying "cannot ship ammunition to Ventura county," which is totally false. . .the exact same wording listing other counties 6 months later appeared on AIM's site. They just simply cut and pasted it.

Buy your stock from RTG. I have bought several from him with no problems whatsoever.

It's easier for CTD to be idiots and just refuse to send anything "centerfire rifle related" than to actually learn the law here. Yes, please spend your money elsewhere - but at least call or send an email to tell they they are morons first.
