follow the handgun flowchart from the main bar under flowcharts and OLL guide to determine if the handgun is legal. Then read this link for information about the california doj roster of approved handguns (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=81127)
then if necessary, look at the single shot exemption explanation sticky (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=383692)

this guide may help also (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=397489)
read the stickies and faqs posted all over the forums and educate yourself

Since the gun is classified as an assault weapon by California, you would need to have the gun converted to a single shot outside the state and then shipped to a dealer willing to do the transfer. The magazine being outside of the grip is what makes it an assault weapon.

To convert to a single shot, you would need 2 things, a magazine lock and a zero round magazine. The mag lock would prevent you from removing the magazine without the use of a tool. This would need to remain on the gun as long as it stays inside California. The zero round magazine would only need to remain in the gun during the DROS and transfer process. Once the gun is in your possession, you can use 10 round magazines.

The barrel on the GSG 522 is ok as it is. The barrel on the GSG 522 PK is too short for a single shot excemption and would need to be changed to a barrel at least 6" long. This would be the hard part for the GSG 522 PK. I don't know if you can change the barrel on this gun and if a 6" barrel is even available anywhere.

LOL, well there you go. That makes it easy, just go to Turner's. Looks like they mounted a flash hider or muzzle brake to get the barrel over 6".

The Turners add says "Single Shot .22 LR"

So you use the magazine lock to drop the single shot mag, and insert one that holds 10 rounds. It's not rocket science.

Correct. Just pointing out that they're selling it via SSE, rather than because, as someone else posted: "Looks like they mounted a flash hider or muzzle brake to get the barrel over 6"." It's SSE.

I'm doing an SSE right now and the barrel has to be over 6" for the SSE.

Quoting from Calguns stickey on SSE:
"(b) The provisions of this chapter shall not apply to a
single-shot pistol with a barrel length of not less than six
inches and that has an overall length of at least 10 1/2 inches
when the handle, frame or receiver, and barrel are assembled."

I have the PK. The barrel is the required length, and the flash hider simply covers up some of the length. It screws on like one of the post ban muzzle breaks on post ban ARs do. The factory mag is a single shot (glued in place, no spring or guts), so you will need to buy some magazines. It has the paddle release removed (yes if you chose to you could put one in when you move out of state) and it has a plate with a "tool" hole over the screw that rotates the release.

Mine was fun for the first range visit, but it was kind of a one trick pony. I would sell it if I could get close to what I paid (more than what Turner's is charging, that is a great price relatively speaking).

Keep in mind that if you put the stock on it or a forward grip, you will be inviting trouble.
