Any chance of a deal on the .38 super polished nickel finish? I think that one is California legal.
Or the tactical .45.
Thanks

Went to the Signal Hill location, they only had two in the store. A kind man looked up the warehouse inventory and they have a bunch. Now go study.

Even if they don't have any in stock or in the warehouse as long as you put a deposit on it by at least the last day of the special you will still get the sale price on the gun whenever stock becomes available.

I might have to stop in there later this week myself. :)

I believe armscor usa, which is the US distributor has a lifetime warranty on their guns.

I don't like the huge bill board roll marks on the left side of the slide, but otherwise the price is so good, I'd get one myself, if it wasn't for the huge roll marks.
As others say, can't have too many 1911's.

the gun lock that comes with the firearm is not considered as a gunlock that must be purchased (with proof of purchase like a receipt) within 30 days of starting the dros.

basically if the gun comes with or without a gunlock, you still have to have a dated receipt (within 30 days of dros) of a gun lock.

Is this right because from all the times i have bought firearms this is what the dealers tell me...

Incorrect.

Per Federal Law, a gunlock must be "provided" by the dealer at the time of transfer. And I quote: “any licensed importer, manufacturer, or dealer to sell, deliver, or transfer any handgun to any person, other than another licensee, unless the transferee (buyer) is provided with a secure gun storage or safety device for that handgun.”

Per California Law, a CA DOJ approved firearm safety device must accompany the firearm (handgun or rifle) with the following exceptions:

"Persons who can demonstrate the purchase of a DOJ-approved safety device in the 30 days prior to taking possession of the firearm by presenting the device to the firearms dealer and providing the firearms dealer with a receipt showing the purchase date and model name of the device.

The commerce of any firearm defined as an "antique firearm" pursuant to federal law.

The commerce of any firearm intended to be used by a salaried, full-time peace officer for law enforcement purposes.

Transfers of firearms to persons who demonstrate ownership of a qualifying gun safe. Ownership may be demonstrated by displaying to the firearms dealer: 1) A receipt indicating purchase of, or an affidavit, signed under penalty of perjury, stating that the purchaser owns a gun safe, and 2) An affidavit, signed under penalty of perjury, stating that the gun safe meets the standards set forth in DOJ regulations."

Since Turner's can't give away gun locks for free to satisfy Federal Law, they charge you for one. A safe affidavit will satisfy California Law.

However, I have seen many a dealer indicate on the DROS what make and model gunlock they provide with a handgun. This does not make sense, since the DROS is a CA State document and a Safe Affidavit should be OK. Also, many handguns such as Smith and Wesson, Springfield Armory come with CA approved integral locking systems built into the gun itself - these will also satisfy the CA requirement and in my opinion should satisfy the Federal law, which is vaguely worded, and so far has not been interpreted into plain and simple English.

You can buy it and DROS it now. Long gun DROS is different from handgun DROS. There is no wait on DROS with long gun, you could DROS a long gun everyday if you wanted, whereas with handguns your allowed 1 every 30 day's.

For new/used or dealer sales, there's a limit of 1 hand gun DROS every 30 calendar days.

There's no DROS limit for long guns or private party transfer hand guns. You can DROS as many as you want, except if you DROS a hand gun within LA city limits then the 1 in 30 rule applies regardless of new/used or private party sales.

I just put one on layaway and the guy at the corona store said they dont... they had a lock for 5.99 so it wasnt bad...

IF someone knows for a fact that the RIA comes with a gun lock please tell me as i can use the $6 for ammo! LOL

if it is a new gun, they keep it with the gun. i bought a rifle from Turners and it came with a cable lock and i didn't have to buy any lock.

the RIA seems to not have an included lock with the gun. hence the lock charge.

Is this right because from all the times i have bought firearms this is what the dealers tell me...

If a gun comes with an approved lock, OEM in the box, there is no need to buy another lock- we just note "OEM" that it was included with the gun.

If the lock provided by the manufacturer is NOT CA approved, we have no choice but to remove the lock since the law mandating locks prevents a dealer from selling/transferring an "un-approved" lock.

A lot (but not all, luckily) import and or price-point firearms come with un-approved locks or with no lock at all.

If the lock is an approved lock, it is delivered with the gun. If the lock is not approved we can't deliver it. It depends on the lock but most are disposed of.

And don't forget that in the paper DROS-era there was a period of time where the wait was 21 days on handguns since DOJ claimed that they couldn't rely on USPS to get them DROS's within the waiting period.
