Question for the Penal Code gurus:

I understand fully how ARs/AK (Style)/Other Rifles pass the California and Federal laws for long guns.

Specifically, how do AR Pistols avoid the California roster for handguns. Is "handgun" and "pistol" a different word or language under the law?

Single shot = exempt from the roster.

Chapter 1.3 Unsafe Handguns

12133 (b) The provisions of this chapter shall not apply to a
single-shot pistol with a barrel length of not less than six inches
and that has an overall length of at least 101/2 inches when the
handle, frame or receiver, and barrel are assembled.


So if you single shot your AR pistol, overall length greater than 10.5'' and barrel length greater than 6'' it doesn't need to meet the roster. There is no state or federal law that stops you from changing the actions of a handgun.

No rear sight. It's backordered.

Quentin Laser in AZ will build you one and ship it to you. Bright Spot Pawn in Riverside, Enterprise Arms in Irwindale, OC armory in Orange County will all accept single shot AR and AK pistols. Contact Glock Holiday via PM. He is one of the owners of Quentin Laser and a good Calgunner. You can find him through my friends list here on calguns.
