I have a AR15 registered as AW. My question is can I take the lower and buy a 50 Cal upper for it and still be legal since the Lower is registered as AW?

How is this possible? Mechanically speaking, not legally.

It`s upper that is chambered in .50BMG. It works like a bolt gun but the lower is your trigger mechanism.

I want one:43:

So do these companies ship these uppers to Ca, or do you have to show proof of your RAW paperwork?

What are the requirements for ordering, if any?

Also just a quick question, is 50 bmg ammo sold in Ca?

thanks

What are the requirements for ordering, if any?legally? none.

yes

.. and for those of you without a RAW lower, you can have the same upper in .50 DTC. Identical ballistics AND legal in California.

Thank you, It's always cool to look into the history of the mighty 50 bmg.

Take care

.50BMG cal is considered an assault weapon in California... the AR15 in question is an assault weapon.... The assault weapon in question is registered as an assault weapon. therefore a registered assault weapon chambered in .50bmg is legally registered as an assault weapon.

Didn't people have to list the caliber of their "assault rifles" when they registered them?

If so, would they be able to prosecute you for having a different caliber on your lower if you didn't list it as "multi caliber" on the registration form?

there is no requirement that your RAW stay exactly as listed on the registration form.
