Hello fellow calgunners.

Getting ready to purchase a magazine release lock-out for a newly acquired SCAR 17S and I remember reading that there was a preferred type for this rifle but forgot which one.

Right now, riflegear has two different types in stock:

Raddlock

or...

Bullet Button

Any feedback would be most helpful.
And I am also getting the stock block from riflegear as well.

Thank you.

I use Bullet Button, it's easy to install. The stock block you can just use a wood dowel instead.

Thank you for the feedback.

What I've been gathering is that the rifle needs to already be CA compliant before entering the state. So I'm basically going to ship the device to the dealer before they ship it my local FFL.

I have a radlock on mine it is super easy to put on. Also if you go out of state just a few turns of a screw and your back to regular operation.

raddlock. that way you keep the original mag released installed, it's basically a cover.

I would suggest the BB since it's "slightly" simpler to install then the raddlock. Not saying the raddlock is hard to install it just has more steps.

If you want to make it easier on the sending dealer... I have the BB and it gets the job done. But I would to try the raddlock one day maybe when I change the stock trigger on te scar.

Um, not true. Your FFL can receive the SCAR and perform the install for you before you take possession.

That's what we did for mine.

My understanding is that not all FFL has an AW permit. They need to receive the rifle CA compliant already. If they have an AW permit, they can do the conversion here in CA. I think Riflegear is one of the FFLís with an AW permit. You can also ask OCArmory. I have a BB on mine because thatís the way it was shipped.

No BB is needed if seller ship ONLY receiver/upper to your FFL but ship bolt group, stock, trigger/lower and rest of items to you directly. If you are in OC, you can use OC Armory for the transfer. Thanks

Simple work around is to ship the rifle disassembled (upper separated from lower)
