A buddy of mine has an Olympic Arms custom AR-15 9mm carbine out of state(he's not a resident). I noticed that the list has "AR-15" listed as an assault weapon for Olympic Arms. Now, my question is this: are ALL Olympic Arms AR-style rifles illegal, or only ones specifically marked AR-15?

The named list is on the CA AW ID Flowchart - link in the top bar on the forum page.

Not on the list, no problem as far as 'named'.

If it's a named receiver or rifle, it's banned, no matter what it's chambered in. The banned-by-name list covers everything under that description, it does not use chamberings for banned rifles.

If the AW list bans only the OA AR-15, then an AR-10 or otherwise would be fine. An OA AR-15, no matter what caliber it is capable of firing (from 2mm Kolibri to 40mm) is an AW.

Hi folks, have some new information on this.

The receiver is marked Cal. Multi 2005 mod. with the serial number.

If this met all other qualifications from the flowchart (BB, 30" OAL, etc.) would there be any reason for this to be illegal in California?

Sorry if I'm coming off a bit dumb, but this really is confusing for me. >.<

Does the receiver have both "Olympic Arms" and "AR-15" on it anywhere? If not, then it's not a named model.

What does it say on the reciever after MOD?
That's where the model designation would be.

How Olympic Arms sets up it's markings.
CAL (what caliber it's in) (year it was made)
MOD (model number)
(serial number)

Here are some examples.

leaving off last two if it doesn't matter.

(make) Olympic Arms (model) M.F.R. is not listed by make/model as a Category 1 or Category 2 assault weapons, so it is "off-list".
