View Full Version : Folding stocks and mag locks OK?

I just called ACE stocks to order a folding stock for my AK (it has a Solar Tactical mag lock) the lady tells me they are not legal in CA?

The lady you spoke to was kinda wrong.

If you want to retain the functionality of the stock you must ensure that the overall length of the rifle is 30" when folded. If you're going to pin the stock, don't worry about it.

Legal in CA with a mag lock if you have a OAL of 30" or more with the stock in the folded position.

Did they refuse to ship it? Or was it just the salesperson's attempt at legal advice?

Its legal if your AK has a mag lock, and if the overall length is 30" or more (measured with the stock folded).

A standard AK is about 25" from the end of the receiver, to the tip of the barrel, so you're going to need about a 5.5" barrel extension or muzzle device.
