A question for those who may know the answer for me.
If you take a Mini 14 and change the stock to one of the tactical type stocks with a pistol grip is it then considered an assault weapon and need a bullet button installed?

Yes.

Doing so in California at least removes one the plusses of the Mini-14; featureless right out of the box (same goes for the M1A).

Honestly if you are trying to go for the "tactical" look you are better off with an AR or AK at least in CA IMHO.

If you want to get that tactical look for your Mini there are few add-ons you can get (ex. Ultimak or Amega rail kit) that dont require you to give up the featureless config.

Closest you can come is mini 14 tactical (the one without pistol grip) add an amega or ultimak rail. Otherwise suck up the bullet button.

Just keep it featureless or get an AR or AK

Run it stock out of the box. Not an assault weapon and really the best thing going for owners of preban hi caps. Run them without problems.

Another problem with some of these after-market stocks and the A Team stock (a ruger product) is an overall length problem. Unless you pin the stock open, it is illegal here in Kalifornistan. (30 inches) (26 in the rest of the Country.

I own a A Team ruger folding stock but had to remove the rifle and use a hogue stock to keep it legal.

16 and 26 ,not 30, why did you not register it as an AW?

...16 and 26 ,not 30...

16 and 26 are to avoid SBR laws. 30 is to avoid California's assault weapon laws.

Don't call a Mini 14 a assault rifle. It's as legal under CA. law as you can get. But once you bunch it in with the AW category. It will be the next to be banned on the list.

Lets not help the other side redefine things to fit their f'd up agenda.

the only mini-14 assault rifle i'm aware of is the AC556 variant
