i've been searching around the forums and found figures here and there but just wanted to get a clear one stop place to reference for overall legal length measurements. correct me if i'm wrong and please fill in the blanks! thanks!

ok, what exactly are the california legal minimum lengths for:

(regardless of caliber)
center fire rifle overall length: 30"
center fire rifle barrel: 16"

rimfire rifle overall length: 26"
rimfire rifle barrel: ?

shotgun overall length: 26"
shotgun barrel: 18"

are there any butt stock length requirements for any of the above?

semi-auto centerfire rifles = OAL 30" / BL 16"
non-semi-auto centerfire rifles & registered AW rifles = OAL 26" / BL 16"
shotguns = OAL 26" / BL 18"

OAL measurement made with rifle/shotgun in shortest configuration (ie. stocks folded/collapsed).

rimfire rifles are non-semi-auto centerfire rifles, so they're lengths = OAL 26" / BL 16"
