View Full Version : Alter Carbine Rifle
Hello Calgunners, Have a question to ask you smart people...If you have a California compliance rifle and you modify the lower, meaning alter the lower magwell, can you put a bullet button and is it still legal or does ATF or DOJ get involve? Thanks in advance
Not sure what you're asking...what do you mean by "alter the lower magwell"? If you mean weld the magwell shut like a bushmaster or a fab-10, then you don't need a bullet button & you can have all the evil features (ie. flash hider, collapsible stock, pistol grip, etc.). Also, make sure whatever lower you're working with is OLL (off list lower).

I believe the OP means he has a welded magwell Bushmaster already and wants to know what he should do in order to open it.
Put a bullet button in it first (assuming it has a mag release? I've never even held one) before openning up the magwell to stay legal. Refer to this flowchart to see what you can and can not do:http://www.calguns.net/caawid/flowchart.pdf

Lower Receivers cannot be legally modified in California. All such rifles must be sent to Texas for processing. I will do this at no charge. Unfortunately all rifles processed cannot be returned to California due to DOJ promulgations. I will however send you a nice 8x10 glossy photo of the modified rifle, yours to treasure and keep as a memento.
