I live in Texas but will be moving to California soon. I have an AR-15, and from what I have read up on I can keep all the attachments on the weapon as long as I put the bullet button on. Can anyone give me some insight to this. I don't wanna hassle with it when I get there.

Consult the flow chart:
http://www.calguns.net/caawid/flowchart.pdf

Make sure your rifle is not banned by name in any of the Appendix's on the 2nd page.

If it is not banned by name then yes a magazine lock will help make it legal.
Magazine locked rifles can have features such as a pistol grip, collapsible stock etc.
But may not use magazines that can accept over 10 rounds. Otherwise it makes the rifle an "assault weapon" under CA law.

Please also remember that you may not bring magazines that hold over 10 rounds into the state unless you dissemble them.
You may also not assemble them in their original form unless you permanently limit them to hold no more then 10 rounds.

(Unless your previously owned the magazines inside CA prior to Jan 1st 2000, in that case you can bring them back in) But still can not use them in a fixed magazine rifle.

Welcome to CA and CALGUNS!

Welcome! If it IS banned by name, then the most you should have to do is get a different receiver (consult the list) for ~$100 and move your parts over.

Different "Lower receiver" (the part with the serial num.) if it is indeed banned here, along with the bullet button. 16.5" barrel minimum, I believe too...
