I have a question about the legality of using a LaRue Magwell Jimmy Plug or similar device. Is it legal in California, if I lock (with a Prince50 Bullet Button) in my AR15's magwell, a device such as the LaRue Magwell Plug or even an AR magazine body that does not have a follower or spring installed but does have its floor plate in place?

for what reason would you think it is not legal?

is it a fixed magazine of more than 10-rounds?

Does it make the firearm now accept a detachable magazine?

Sure, why not?!

It is not even a magazine.

Sweet. It's an $11 single shot sled for AR pistols. Now with storage space!

That's a really really good idea.

Cheapest single-shot exemption compliance piece I've found so far!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but you're using the Prince 50 maglock with the allen set-screw, yes? If so, you'll still have to be mindful of your assembly procedure when swapping the magwell plug for your 10rd mag prior to range use to ensure that you don't manufacture an AW, however briefly during the process.

You probably already know this, but it's worthwhile to note, just to be on the safe side.

Very correct. Sequence is important when transitioning between certain configurations. Best bet is to take off upper.

i'm using a Prince 50 Bullet Button, not a Prince 50 Mag Lock. Two different things. Thanks for the heads up though.
