I have seen this term tossed out regarding a means of importing a pistol not on the CA DOJ list of handguns. Although the term seems clear (single shot = some sort of conversion to a single shot design), what is actually done to the pistol? How hard is it to convert it back once the transfer has been completed? Does it add to the cost of the pistol?

Is anyone able to explain exactly what is involved in this process? There are several pistols I have been interested in that are not california legal.

Making a single shot pistol involves a zero shot magazine, known as a sled, inserted to the magwell in a fashion that requires a tool to remove it. Pistols also must have a barrel over 6" and I think there may be an overall length rule.
How hard to convert back and the costs depend on the FFL.

6"? What about an LCP.

Just curious, are there any revolvers not on the list do to design?

Overall length has to be 10.5" or up. Someone else will have to chime in for revolvers.
