Hello,

here's my question: If I stick my Ruger 10/22 in an airsoft stock, does the whole thing have to be over 30 inches? Does that work with g36's? (with the folding stock?)

Thanks!

No, it doesn't have to be over 30 inches. It has to be over 26 inches.

Thanks for the clarification! I trust that your info is accurate, but do you know what PC it is? I'm just curious.

Thanks a lot

12276.1PC defines generic "by features" AWs.

The 30" min. rifle length only applies to semiauto + centerfire rifles having detachable magazines. All 3 parameters must be satisfied to trigger AW status, but you write of a rimfire rifle which is not a semiauto.

The 30" limit only applies in this case; otherwise the normal 26" min length for other CA guns (and which is the Fed std) applies.

Remember if there's a folding/telestock on the rifle (which would also need a fixed 10rd mag so as not to trigger AW status), that 30" min length is measured with the stock FOLDED - unlike the more lenient Fed method (Feds measure when opened, allowing a conveniently shot folded length).
This difference is due to CA case law, People v Rooney.)

Detachable magazine isn't required to trigger A/W status on an under 30" semi-auto centerfire rifle. So only the first two parameters must be satisfied. But yeah, the Ruger 10/22 is a semi-auto rimfire rifle, so like you say, it can't be an A/W anyway.

This only applies to centerfire rifles, correct?

Make sure that the gun's serial number remains visible.

Yes, the part you bolded only applies to centerfire. Since you are talking about a rimfire rifle you don't need to worry about triggering A/W status at all. You only need to worry about California and Federal "short barreled rifle" status. California is more restrictive, so the rifle would have to be over 26" long with the stock folded.
