The California shield will have a magazine lock out that prevents the gun from being fired without the magazine installed in the weapon. Also it will have that lovely looking red indication of a loaded gun. A gun must be on the DOJ register to be legal to own/possess in California.
If you sse the weapon from another state, you can legally possess and register it in the state of California without the above features. It must be modified by someone to comply with single shot regulations. It is a loop hole in the law. Only law enforcement can purchase the non California models at this time.
