I have property and an I.D. card in Arizona and property and a DL in CA.

Can I go there and buy a bushmaster or a Colt M4 and add a magazine lock and then ship it to an FFL here?

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

Unless you are LE. Then there is a loop hole. If you are not Law Enforcement,

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO

Those are listed AW and are AW's regardless of features.

No. It would have to be an unlisted Colt or Bushmaster.

The Make, and Model must be named on the 'type one' banned AW in California.
I do believe Colt AR-15s (all) are specifically named.

Type two bans the AR, and AK series weapons:
This California Supreme Court decision took effect on August 16, 2000. Under this decision, any firearm of
minor variation of the AK or AR-15 type (i.e., series weapon), regardless of the manufacturer, is a Category 2
(Kasler v. Lockyer) assault weapon under the original Roberti-Roos Assault Weapons Control Act of 1989.
All AK and AR-15 series weapons had to be possessed before August 16, 2000 and must have been
registered on or before January 23, 2001. The Department of Justice is required to identify these series
weapons and includes in this publication a listing of identified AK and AR-15 series weapons.

It is important to note that removal of a firearm’s characteristics does not affect its status as a Category
2 assault weapon. A Category 2 assault weapon is still an assault weapon even if it has no Category 3
(SB 23 - generic characteristics) features.

Type three is banned by characteristics:

For reference:
http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/awguide/awguide.php

What I did was build mine from an off-list lower, and adhere to the type 3 (SB23) definition of an assault rifle. It was easy, and fun.
