View Full Version : Sig 556p swat pistol... Can be made compliant?

05-25-2012, 8:16 AM
I am moving to CA (yes I need to be there) and want to bring this with me.

I need some help answering a few question please:

Will a bullet button and a 10rd mag make this CA Compliant?
Will a large capacity pmag sold as permanently fixed to accept 10rds work or cause me grief?
When I register this as a handgun should I note the bullet button and 10rd mag or regardless will the .556 calibre mean I should expect extra hassle?

If so I am not gonna buy this and I'll go for the kriss vector sdp with factory bb and 10rd.

Thanks again

Just add it to the new resident handgun registration form. Done. They will not ask questions. It's a pistol like any other. Do not note anything that isn't specifically asked on the form. It's up to you to make sure you meet the legal requirements that keep it from being an assault weapon. The CA DOJ is not going to come inspect your guns.

Yes, bullet button makes it CA compliant.
10 round maximum in magazines. That can mean a mag made for 10 rounds or a mag permanently modified to hold only 10 rounds. There are many people who run 10/20 or 10/30 mags (larger cap modified to fit just 10) for aesthetic purposes and this is 100% A-Okay.
