gun building
 
https://citadelgunandsafe.com/cart/s...s-stock-black/

So I have a question about making a gun from scratch. I am wondering if it is legal to build an uzi or skorpion? I have seen kits online but want to know if they are ca legal. Also I am wondering is this legal in calie? (see link.)

Sure you can build an Uzi or Skorpion. But that Beretta stock is a no go without an SBR stamp as far as I know.

could I have an under folding stock for the uzi and an over folding stock for the skorpion? aslo is that carbine kit legal for a handgun or does it make it into an illegal short barreled rifle?

NOT Legal. No, no, no. NO stocks on pistols. That is, without approval from the ATF and payment of your $200 NFA tax stamp. Adding a shoulder stock to a pistol makes it a Short Barrel Rifle, which is a Class III (NFA-regulated) firearm. Doing this would be a Federal felony, punishable by 10 years in Federal Prison.

Additionally, California doesn't allow SBR's no matter what, so you cannot go through the legal steps to get this in your state anyway. Federally they are okay, but the States can still ban them. Unfortunately, even in WA here SBR's are not allowed. I do have a suppressor now that I have moved here, and some other NFA items are okay, but no SBR's here either :(


Now... all of that said, you CAN have a folding (regardless of over, under, or to the side) stock on an Uzi or Skorpion IF if has at least a 16" barrel and, with the stock folded, still meets minimum overall length requirements of a rifle. In this case, yes, it would be a rifle. You can purchase lots of Uzi variants that are legally rifles. This is the only way to have a shoulder stock and avoid NFA regulations.

So I can have the Uzi and Skorpion with the folding fram stocks say with a 6 or 7 inch barrel?

Also what is the gun laws like in WA im thinking of moving there. Do you know of any website like calguns for washington? are you allowed to have hi cap mags?
