Nice.

To the OP. You should so some reading rather than look for a quick answer. For you to not know the answer automatically (it being a 22LR RIMFIRE round) means you don't know/understand current CA assault weapons laws which really aren't that complex....they are stupid and illogical, but not complex.

Thank you all for the assistance. I am not sure because of the magazine capacity and could not find a ten round magazine that would comply with CA law. I will check with a few distributors and probably get one. Again thanks.

As you may have ascertained from the other threads, 10 round magazines are not commercially available yet. However, some dealers will convert a standard capacity magazine to a 10 rounder for you. But, be cautious, the conversion must be permanent.

The availability of 10 round magazines has nothing to do with the legality in CA of the gun itself.

Another point to consider: there are three models of the GSG-5. The one with the fake can has a legal >16" barrel, the other two models do not. If you're buying from a dealer here in CA that's the only model they carry.

Hi Gents,

Michael at Suchar enterprises does a permanent 10 round mag mod to all CA bound GSG5s. To date there is only the 16" /mock suppressed unit available from the importer ATI.

So far, the BATFE says it's the only version of the GSG5 that is legal to be imported into the USA.

I think with 10 round magazine and only .22 caliber, it will be legal everywhere in USA. CA and NY got most strict gun law and GSG-5 10 round magazine are legal in above mentioned states.

I think ProMag from Santa Fe Srping CA makes 10 round magazine for GSG-5. you can get it at http://combatoptical.com/catalog/ProMag-GSG-5-10-Round-Magazine-580.html

well, I live in CA so I am 100% sure is legal in CA.

Um, they are actually. Hard to find, but available.

I've purchased four at various gun shops in CA and NV.

There are tons of GSG-5's in CA

The standard GSG-5 with the thin fake can and the GSG-5 SD with the fat fake can are legal as rifles, as long as your stock makes them >26" collapsed, also remember to have 10 rounders

The gsg-5 pistol is legal in CA if tranferred as a single shot and then used with a maglock and 10 rounder


Factory 10 rounders are hard to find, but there are plenty of converted 22 to 10 rounders floating around...

There are about 10 of these things on the rack at the indoor range here in SLO.

...and why is this in the "center fire" forum?

The thread was created before we had a rimfire forum. I've moved it now.
