I was just thinking out loud about not being able to have threaded barrels on pistols in California and was wondering what everyone was doing in their AK & AR pistol builds ??

I see a lot of AK & AR pistol builds happening and not too many without something mounted up front.

So, is everyone just welding & blind pinning these in place ??

mag lock negates the requirement to have a non-threaded barrel.

you can even buy a threaded pistol barrel separately for a pistol you own without issue. just dont put it in your california pistol without a mag lock.

Then, hypothetically, someone could also add a threaded barrel to their Glock pistol, shave the magazine release button off of the pistol (thus requiring a tool) and you'd still be legal then, correct ??

Sounds good, then.......at least for the clarification part.

Just had some ideas floating around in my head and I was trying to work them out, legalities wise.

As always ke6guj, you are often the voice of reason for my ideas.......
