View Full Version : 5.45x39 steel core ammo legality

01-27-2010, 6:37 AM
Can someone tell me the legalities of this ammo in California? I am selling some on GB and have an interested party in LA county (outside of the LA city limits) A lot of sellers say they won't sell it to LA county, but the interested buyer states that its illegal only in LA city. Can someone tell me the real deal? preferably with documents?

Thanks a ton!

There is no issue shipping it to a Los Angeles County resident, that is not in the City of Los Angeles...

Those are rules on ammo shipped into the city, from what I understand, not on 5.45x39 specifically.
It's not considered armor piercing, even though it does have a steel core.

Thanks guys, someone else "Bought it Now" anyways!

I think a lot of dealers/sellers are just overly covering their asses
