I had a customer asking me if I would do the transfer for him on a Browning 1919 semi Auto side plate only. Naturally I said no, but it sounds like some people are getting these in CA. as a semi auto. My question is, as I see it, this is a no no, since the browning is belt fed, it does not matter if it is made semi auto, it still counts as an assault weapon, right? Or am I missing something that allows you to have a semi auto version in the Sate od CA. legally?
Thanks

it is legal.

it has to stay as a semi auto. they can only have 10 rounds put together in links....unless they had the links before 2000.

isnt that the same as using a 100 round drum, but only putting 10 rounds in at a time?

If it's a belt, yes. The belt would need to have been owned prior to 2000 to be legal. Links however, can legally be bought and sold in CA because they're not a hicap magazine until you've linked 11 together.

Also, like others have said, the 1919 isn't an AW.

1. it's not a rifle.
2. the pistol grip is behind the action, not below it.
3. it does not contain any other banned features unless it has the A6 flash hider.
4. Do a search on Blackwater Ops. He was infamously charged a couple of years ago with importing 1919A4s and had all charges dropped.
