View Full Version : SBR's In CA???

Anyone know, for sure, if short barreled rifles (SBR's) are allowed in CA with the proper ATF paperwork??? A buddy at work wanted to know if he could put a 14.5" length M-4 barrel on his CA registered pre-ban Colt AR here in CA if he did the ATF paperwork and paid the tax.

Nope, not going to fly here in the people's republic.

not in CA without virtually impossible to get CADOJ permission. He could do a C&R SBR, but the AW regs would still apply.

Ya know, in 3 years some very early AR-15's will start being eligible for C&R status (started production 1961 IIRC). At that point, a small selection of folks would be able to have SBR AR-15's in CA. And if the gun happened to have been reg'ed as an AW, that'd create some interesting pants-browning action from DOJ... :)
