Follow that chart for the rifles. I believe any Ruger Mini-14 is ok. The lever action is ok. But the Handgun, you'll have to check the CA DOJ approval list for handguns as I am unsure, else you can have a shop do single shot exemption for you at an extra cost.

Doubt they will ship any of them. Bud's tends to think all semi auto rifles are banned in ca.

I think since the muzzle device is permanently attached (not a threaded barrel), that part might be legal. But since the mag capacity is greater than 10 shots, I believe it is illegal.

If they hold more than 10 ounces they are considered "High Capacity" and would be considered Assault Water Pistols...

not true. bud's shipped me an M1A (with muzzle brake) without a peep.

squirts, not ounces. the law is clear on this one.

Standard mini 14 are fine. Look for the ones that ship with 5 rd mags. And make sure "standard" rifle stock

1, 2, 4, 7 are fine. I think the "target" is down lower and is fine too. There's a 30 there too that's fine. That being said, they aren't that hard to find in Cali and after you pay a transfer fee you probably aren't saving much unless you find a place with a super low transfer fee

Agreed. You are probably better off checking your LGS or Big5 unless the transfer fee is like $50 or less as you'll still pay sales tax and DROS.

Basically you want a model w/o a flash hider, pistol grip/thumbhole stock or larger than 5rd magazine. If it has "tactical" in the name its an instant no-no.

4 is a Tac, so it's a no go.

Got my Mini from Buds no problem.... Blue Mins on sale at Big 5 are now $720 plus tax/dros.
