I have searched all over the forum and I am either blind or stunned.

I am trying to verify the legality of the RADDLOCK bullit button. It sounds to good to be true.

Has Librarian posted an opinon on this anywhere?

The raddlock conforms to the letter of the law. However if you're looking for an approval letter from the DOJ, it doesn't exist.

They are GTG... Long as its installed correctly, leave it in position one while in California, and use a “tool” to remove the mag.

Why do u think it's too good to be true? It's a bullet button, you still need a tool to remove the magazine...

But if you turn the knob it becomes illegal.

Any websites you look up, it'll say the same. Not DOJ approved yet, but is design to comply with the law.

With that being said, I'll ship you my never used raddlock in FDE for $20 " Thank you shameless plug, its gone :D "

^^ I'll second that motion my god is it easy to install! Yep just don't screw it out and your gtg. And use the o-ring if there is any gap with it fully tightened.

No magazine lock has DOJ approval. Well, there were a few Vulcans (I think) that came into the state with fixed mags and DOJ approval but, that was a long time ago. They were epoxied into the lowers.

I've wondered the legality as well, given even the bullet button is not DOJ approved, because they do not, nor will not. But as stated it must be removed with a "Tool" and the DOJ defines a Tool as a "Magazine or Bullet" specifically.

Thanks all for the info so far.

I saw posts that were talking about some sort of Magnetic Tool. Many people said that they were illegal because "the moment you use them, you have converted to a 'tool-less' mag release. So I was concerned about the legality of one than can be changed by a simple twist of a tool.

This device just has too much common sense applied to be legal in CA.

No, common sense would dictate that we are responsible enough to be trusted with a regular magazine release. Until that happens, the Raddlock works fine. I have one on my AR.

the raddlock isnt made to well
that little screw inside widens too easily, at least the old one I have
and the hole is too small
I think on mine it stuck out too far and I had to use one of those o rings, looked janky
I wouldnt recommend it


Best one I always use is the prince 50 I think its called may be a newer design too as its not the one that looked like the original ar 15 button, mainly because I shoot 22lr
then on the rare times I do 223 I just top load it after screwing in the bolt

I also have the one that accept some sort or red screw in button thing, but that didnt work too well either
I think the softness of the metals used just wear out too much
maybe now parts are better all mine I bought years ago

Not me. But I don't double dutch between CA/NV to have very much wear on the screw inside to know. And both of mine install near flush with the receiver.

Nope, I have one on mine and the wife has one. I think Chunky has one of the old ones.
