The end owner of a handgun can alter the handgun in any way that is legal federally (aka, don't put a stock on it) and keeps it out of CA AW status (no threaded barrel.)

Once it's in your possesion - You can convert away -

This is the accepted wisdom based on the theory that only a licensed manufacturer can manufacture, but you might easily find a DA who sees it differently. That said, it would only me a misdemeanor if you get charged. The PC for this (and the arguments for and against legality) can be found in the original NERF thread.
