Hey Guys,

I tried searching the site for my question but couldn't find it. Is it legal to have a rimfire short barrel rifle(less then 16 inches?). I know that centerfire rifles are not legal but was wondering if it also applied to rimfire.

Thanks!

The only sbr you can have is a bb rifle, sorry!

The only 22lr sbr that could possibly be owned has to start out as a C&R.
There are 10/22, ar, and possibily a 22lr Thompson that are C&R.
Getting a approval or setting up a trust to pay the tax stamp is another subject..:sleeping::D

However, I believe the Over All Length (OAL) for rimfire is 26" compared to 30" for centerfire rifles.

the OAL for all long guns in CA is 26" with the sole exception of semi-automatic centerfire rifles that are not Registered Assault Weapons. Those non-RAW semi-automatic centerfire rifles must be 30".

True, but the barrel must be a min of 16''.

Go read that link.

Yes, you can have ANY caliber SBR in CA.

You should form a trust.
You need to get the stamp ($200) from the ATF.
In CA you need a discretionary-issue permit in order to legally possess an SBR that's not a C&R. You can bypass this by SBR'ing a C&R rifle (more than 50YO).
