View Full Version : New to the handgun forum, basic question

05-04-2009, 11:51 AM
I do not own a handgun, haven't since I moved to CA.

An out of state relative passed and part of his estate included a browning with 2 high cap mags. From a post in the C&R forum I understand that the mags cannot accompany the firearm if it comes to CA.

My question is, can the gun come to CA without the mags?

Yes, the gun should be fine as long as the barrel isn't threaded (Assault Weapon).

There is no limitation on the gun's ability to accept magazines that hold more than 10 rounds. The limitation is only on importation of manufacture of magazines that hold more than 10 rounds.

A follow up question:

If I buy a C&R handgun out of state I am required to register it, does the same apply for this gun? (a non-C&R)
