Aww, be nice.

The question first resolves to "is it a named weapon?"

See the flow-chart - http://www.calguns.net/caawid/flowchart.pdf - and linked in the top bar of every page you see.

You need to see EXACTLY what is marked on the lower - what is on the paperwork does not matter.

If the lower says "Golden Eagle" or "AR 10" or "M15", then it is "banned by name" and can never be made CA-legal (until we get the stupid law changed).

If it says anything else, probably it is not "named", but it would be better if you could post a picture - a good close-up of the markings.

Presuming it's 'off-list', then you would need to get a magazine lock' of some kind, such as a 'bullet button', because that model has 'features' - in this case, pistol grip and collapsible stock.

Aren't you glad you asked?

If it's not specifically named on the list, it is gtg.

So it's good since it says "Eagle" instead of "Golden Eagle"?

the issue on most of them is that they are marked something like this on the lower:

Eagle Arms
AR-10
a division of Armalite

Since it says Armalite and AR-10 on it, it is listed. That is why Librarian said that the OP needs to know EXACTLY what the lower has marked on it.

Please refer to the information above. You really need to check and be 100% sure it's not listed, since you're treading pretty close to the name of a rifle that is listed.

Thanks for the info. I looked at the list a few times and read the law a coue of ti
Es before posting on here. I just want to make sure since it is close an the laws can be kinda confusing with some of the wording.
