Im consedering ordering a set of prints from CCS http://www.ccsprints.com in order to build a mini Browning 1919 reproduction, that uses a 10 22 receiver and rifle parts for the reproduction. The 10 22 is built into the body of the gun that looks like he Browning it does not function in any automatic mode what so ever.
So my question is, the receiver is on the inside of the body of the gun with no access to the serial number other taking it apart to remove the 10 22 receiver.
Is this legal in california or is this gun legal in California.
It is possable to cut a window into the body so the serial number can be seen, is this legal in California?

IANAL, and I know that the whole covered / obscured serial number issue has gotten pretty out of hand, but I've noticed that when I lock my guns in container to transport them to the range, (and when I holster them for that matter), the serial number is obscured.

Why not have the serial number inscribed somewhere on the body

Pretty cool. Anyone ever built one? I wonder how much machining is involved? It appears this site is for the drawings only and you have to fabricate everything except the 10/22.

Why not build a Lakeside Machine mini 1919? I know one member here who built one in such a way that it qualifies as a rifle under Ca law.

Lakeside Guns is the way to go if you want a true 22LR belt fed. I love mine. Problem is that the kits are vary limited. They only release them now and then in vary small numbers.

Another thing to consider is there Razoback 22LR belt fed upper for an AR. One guy on their form machined aa custom hybrid lower that would look less like a AR and more like a Browning that he could put his DIAS in. It looks great and cost him less than a transferable Tippmen.

All are CA legal, as long as you onlt use a semi-auto trigger instead of the DIAS in the hybrid.

Lakeside is building only 49 of the mini 1919 per year at a starting price of $3495.
Ouch!

Lakeside also builds the Razorback 22LR belt fed AR upper for $695

They some times put out kits with all the castings but need some machining (a mill not just a drill press) and a lot of hand fitting. But those are even smaller numbers but not as much $$. Also, with the 1919/1917's they have a 12" barrel. I built mine with a custom 16.5" barrel to avoid the whole pistol/rifle/other argument.
