First off, I would like to say thank you all for the information you have compiled here. The flowchart you have for California assault weapon classification is amazing.

Secondly, howdy everyone, I am currently serving active duty with the US Navy and will be PCSing to California around the end of July. I will be working out in a little place called Ridgecrest near the NAWS China Lake as a recruiter. I currently don't own any long guns but am looking for get a decent quality rifle shortly after moving in to the state.

After looking around, prowling through some threads here, and looking at many other reviews, I am leaning in the direction of an AR-10, M1A, or the Ruger Gunsite Scout. Obviously the Ruger is CA legal due to being a bolt-action, and the AR-10 would require some alterations along the lines of altering the pistol grip or a bullet button. From what I can gather, the M1A by itself would be completely CA legal if I replace the flash hider with a muzzle brake or just leave it off altogether.

What kind of opinions do y'all have on these particular weapons and is that what I would need to do to them? I don't like the idea of a bullet button, mainly for a SHTF/WROL type scenario so I would like to avoid having to use one to make a weapon legal.

Thanks again and I look forward to further discussions here.

Welcome: My brothers ship: DD677 USS McDermott - Vietnam era. She's since been scrapped.

This might not be the right forum for discussions, this is an "introduce" yourself place. Try some of the other many forums like: General Discussion, or the Centerfire Rifle Forum. Sometimes just reading and searching can give good results. Glad you could join, hope to see on the forums.
