Curious if this YHM flash hider is legal, since it has external threads designed for a suppressor.

Yep. Like many other things in California, the product itself is legal, but it's how you use it that will determine final legality.

Because there are no laws against having threaded barrels on rifles. If this was the handgun forum, I would mention that threaded barrels ARE illegal on pistols with a detachable magazine.

Threads were an evil feature for the federal AWB that expired nearly a decade ago. CA has never cared about them, except on handguns.

^this.

On a magazine locked semi auto rifle in CA it would be legal to use this or any other flash hider.

If it is a featureless build no its not legal. Not because of the threads but that it is a flash hider...

Thanks for that clarification. I can never remember which is which. As I said earlier, depends on how you use it...

I don't see any external threads on this flash hider shown in picture. All I see are machined grooves and rings on exterior. Have you all been smoking dope?

its a bad pic in the OP. the 3 rings that you see at the back of the FH are actually threads. look at the link in the OP and you'll see that it is actually a thread.

Can anyone show a link or code number:mad: to handgun code restricted threaded barrels on pistols?
Thanks

its covered in the handgun flowchart, http://www.calguns.net/caawid/hgflowchart.pdf

and here is the new PC

30515. (a) Notwithstanding Section 30510, "assault weapon" also
means any of the following:
(4) A semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a
detachable magazine and any one of the following:
(A) A threaded barrel, capable of accepting a flash suppressor,
forward handgrip, or silencer.

YHM makes a brake similar to that FH. It would be legal on any CA rifle.

Great thanks. Now I'll have to replace my bbl for Walther p22 before I assemble the kit. No receiver as of this point. Working on that casting.
