Legal or illegal, Bullet buttoned purchased in Ca.?

Thanks for the info in advance. I believe it to be illegal from all I have read.

Legal as long as it meets 30in over all length measured with the stock folded.

Thanks. My rationale is it is sold in CA with the stock pinned for a reason. It'd be about 26 inches by that measurement.

Could add barrel extension like the Scars use

That, or keep the upper and lower separated until outside CA.

They are pretty simple to "pin". I just take the button off, drop in a peice of a bic pen (it fits nicely around the spring inside), and put the button back on and it's good to go. :D

That is the method that I used to pin my original Swiss 55x stock when I replaced the lousy factory telescoping folder. I used a small section of solid copper wire that is about the same diameter as a bic pen to plug the latch mechanism. No external signs that it has been pinned, and it is reversible with no damage to the expensive Swiss folder.:D

I understand the 30" rule, which a nice pinned can can fix. But, I thought that the 30" rule only applied to rifles that are easily fired while in the shorter configuration. No?

No. "easily" doesn't factor into it

If it took 3 cops 2 engineers and a monkey to get the gun to go bang when the stock is folded (less than 30" OAL)...it's an assault weapon...and the owner will be prosecuted as such.
