Guys I've sent a request to the CA state officials but, based on what I have read here, I cannot ship a Glock 27 EXO to CA. This is because it is not specifically listed with the finish. Is that correct?

I apologize for the post but, I need some guidance. Crazy laws.

Correct, you'll have to get it exempted.

But..you can buy a California GLOCK and probably ship it to them for the upgrade.

Thank you gentlemen. I'm really trying to sell to CA. It is difficult with no real comfort factor for me. Now I see why a lot of dealers just say no. So sorry for your state.

Of course some members here will blast you for not taking the time to learn which is too bad. It's amazing how much easier everything is when you cross the CA border.

Well I'm trying. I went through the CA list and thought there it is Glock 27. Then I decided to come here to the actual authorities, The People. I saw finish matters. I just could not believe it, it is so stupid. I do not want to exclude CA.

I will investigate the exemption process.

Welcome to the forum, rdcguns! Not to get OT or anything, but...what's the name of your shop? Where are you located? We get all giddy when an out-of-California FFL takes the time to find out what needs to be done to sell to us.

The exemption referenced in other posts is to make the firearm single shot exempt from the roster. This is usually done by using an extended barrel and blocking the magwell in some manner to meet the qualifications of the exemption. Other members can probably go into more detail if you wanted to go through the trouble.

There are a handful of FFL's in the state that also specialize in selling handguns under this exemption. Once a single shot exempt handgun is in the hands of the final owner, they are free to reverse the modifications and bring it back to its factory semi-automatic configuration.

I also memtion that if your are selling to a law enforcement officer,a gun not on the list can still be sent to a Ca. FFL,that would then sell it to the LEO as exempt DROS in Ca.

Correct, the aftermarket finish on the Glock EXO models (via Lipsey's/TALO) are not listed on the CA roster. :(

I was able to get both my G19 and G23 EXO via single-shot exemption at Valkyrie Arms in Milpitas though. :D

No longer. FailZero has ceased to do EXO finish on personal firearms, as far as I know... you might have to contact them directly to be sure. The runs of the EXO finish on the Glocks (maybe 500 of each model?) maybe the only ones we'll see for a while unless there is huge demand.

edit: I just realized the OP is a dealer... you can FFL pistols to CA via Valkyrie Arms if the buyer is willing to pay for the exemption process. You might want to contact them to see what they can work out with you.

Theres a relatively simple solution that many may not have thought of.

Replace the slide - with an ordinary Glock 27 slide. Should the new owner want the EXO coating - they can send it out to the seller at which point MAGICALLY an EXO finished slide happens to be on the bench and is sent to the customer.

Regulated part here is frame - not slide. The EXO finish isn't on the frame.

Wouldn't the stock sticker on the case of the gun still be that of the EXO?

Yes, and? You'd still be getting the serial number.....just not right away.
