I saw a posting that sparked an idea. I tried to search my idea on the forum but didnít see anything that directly dealt with this question, so here it goes.

Is it California legal to bring into the state or assemble in the state an AR-15 style OLL matted with a filled-in thumbhole stock? Here are the details of my question.

1. JP Rifles use to make and sell a laminated stock for their AR-15s. (See www.jprifles.com). If I got one of these I could fill-in the thumbhole part.
2. There is a poster on this site that bought an H&K SL8-1 and filled in the thumbhole stock. There was a raging debate of the legality with no clear decision in the forum. http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=47019&highlight=sl8-1

If the fellow that filled-in the thumbhole on the H&K is correct and the gun is California legal then couldnít we do the same for the AR-15s and even the AK-47s styled weapons? Buy the lower without the pistol grip, slap on a filled-in thumbhole stock and we got ourselves a good gun.

Here is the second part of the question. Assuming this would be legal, where would we get the thumbhole stock for the AR-15 as JP and DPMS discontinued this product.

It's been done. Use the search function to find it.

www.brownells.com (http://www.brownells.com/aspx/NS/store/productdetail.aspx?p=1866&s=) has Bell & Carlson AR15 thumbhole stocks. Fill-in the hole with material of your choice and you should be good to go.

Another calgunner achieved the same effect by wrapping the standard pistol grip with a plastic material called Kydex, making a fin which blocks the thumb from wrapping around the grip. Search for Kydex.
