Is that CA legal?

Not straight from RRA. It would need to go through a middle man dealer to Californicate it by adding a bullet button and a zero-shot mag. It can then be imported into the state through "single-shot exemption" status (to circumvent the CA approved handgun roster) and DROS'd like a pistol. Only a few FFL's will do this, but they are out there!

Oh and when you get the gun out of DROS you can remove the zero-shot mag and replace it with a 10-rounder, but the bullet button has to stay!

...now get crackin'!

Very nice. Looks like another AR pistol to add to the collection.

I had to go out and try to imagine my AR pistol without the buffer tube. While it looks great without a tube, the stability of the weapon isn't as good. You can hold the buffer tube against your face and hold the weapon as still as a rifle. I don't think the RRA unit will be that easy to shoot based on my experience with a mini uzi or free handing the AR pistol I have.
