Hello all,

So I know that not so long ago, governor brown did not approve a law for californians to register their rifles.

My question stems here. If, say, I were to have a blank receiver and a law in the future were to pass that required to register firearms, how can I register a "blank" receiver? I would like to follow the law, so I would not decide to pretend it does not exist. If I am obliged to register, can I create my own serial number (since I would be the manufacturer) or do I have to take it somewhere to have an official serial number placed on it?

I am asking this because I want to build my own AK with flats.

You make up whatever you'd like as a serial number and stamp or engrave it on the receiver. You also make up your own manufacturing company name and add it too.

This is easy:

Serial No: BITEMY@SSCADOJ
Manuf: TWOSTONESANDAHAMMER

Serial No: CADOJCANEATIT
Manuf: DRILLEDITNAILEDIT

Serial No: ABOLISHTHESTUPIDGUNLAWS
Manuf: MYTWOYEAROLDWITHPLAYDOH

You may freely use any of the above.

Probably should put at least one actual number in the serial number, and you can't have an @ symbol, alpha numeric only.
Refer to BATFE marking guidelines....

Isn't it a challenge to make it a joke and be legal at same time.
