I have an 870 pump ... used to be a hunting gun ... but when I moved to the city, figured I needed a solution for all the crack heads wondering around here ... so I hacked the barrel to 18.5 inches and took the stock off ... replaced it with a rubber pistol grip ... my buddy was over the other day to go to the range and shoot our .45's (he is a sherriff deputy) and he saw my gun ... he told me it is a felony in CA to posess this because of the pistol grip... true or false ? Please educate me.

False. Since it's a pump, do what you want as long as the barrel is over 18".


12276.1. (a) Notwithstanding Section 12276, "assault weapon" shall also mean any of the following:
(1) blah, blah, blah...!
(6) A semiautomatic shotgun that has both of the following:
(A) A folding or telescoping stock.
(B) A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon, thumbhole stock, or vertical handgrip.
(7) A semiautomatic shotgun that has the ability to accept a detachable magazine.
(8) Any shotgun with a revolving cylinder.


The rulings center around SEMI AUTO. You're fine with a pump.

It's legal because it's not semi-auto.

false, as mentioned above. An 870 with an 18" barrel and a pistol grip is over the 26" minumum length that would otherwise make it an SBS.

correct, overall length. Pistol grip with no stock. Get a pistol stock for it.


+1 on the Knoxx too....they feel nice. If you get one make sure it has the recoil reducer. They come both ways. Non and reducer.

It is legal but it sucks to shoot with only a pistol grip.

Hey Greg-Dawg, his name is Harry Callahan, badge # 2211 ... yeah, I blow in my buddies all the time.

Bohoki - Are you really this stu pid ? We prefer Meth. I can tell you are a real cool and intelligent guy.

Why is it these forums always have idi ots chiming in ?

Randy, I'll shoot from the hip ... and I'll probably never fire it, but if I do, it will be once ... one shot, one kill ... a little trick I learned in the Corp ;-)

why don't cops know the rules.

In fact I always find myself correcting people about gun laws.

WOW!
