Is there a way to make one of these Cali legal? They WILL ship to California, but once you assemble it becomes illegal. Is there a way to make this work in Cali? I want one for my G17!!:D

If you use a 1911, dress down the mag release to below the frame, I used a Para mag release because it's plastic & because I use the P10 as the 911 gun. Switch out when using the Mech Tech & back to a regular when using as a plain old 1911.

Just be certain the mag lever is sufficiently below the frame as to not be used without a tool.

I got the wire stock version, drilled a small hole through the wire & dropped in a small metal loop to prevent from closing, but easily reversible. Also bought their raised sight rib, mounted a Barska Electro on the thing. Lots of fun, I use the ProMag 50 round drum out of state.

Isn't it illegal to convert a pistol to a rifle or is it vice-versa?? :confused:

What he said.

If you searched the forums, this has been covered in the past.
In fact a Calguns member JHC has a 1911 Mechtech.

Most common method to make it CA legal is to grind/file down the magazine release until you can not use it without using a tool to operate.
Use 10 round magazines only with it.
