Well yes you can buy it, but beware of constructive possession in California. Don't have it on your pistol ever in CA or even in close proximity to it. Why chance it?

A person can be charged with constructive possession of an illegal device if they possess the otherwise legal material to assemble it. If a person has in his possession or control the ingredients to make an explosive device, he can be charged with constructive possession of that device.

AFAIK, there is NO CONTRUCTIVE POSSESSION for California AWs! So, go ahead and keep the threaded barrel in the same case as the pistol.

As far as simpling aquiring a threaded barrrel goes, there is no law against it. In fact, you can legally put a threaded barrel on any type of handgun you want to EXCEPT for semi autos with the capacity to accept detachable magazines. My AK pistol in not an RAW, it has a mag lock on it and, IT HAS A THREADED BARREL.

I live in TN and just bought a MPA M10 with a threaded barrel. When I move back to CA how difficult is it to attach a break or safety extension permanently?

Screw it on, pin it and weld the pin in.
