Getting close, but...

(4) A semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any one of the following:
(A) A threaded barrel, capable of accepting a flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer. The SBR barrel wouldn't have this so OK
(B) A second handgrip. I think this means "vertical" grip so OK
(C) A shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the barrel that allows the bearer to fire the weapon without burning his or her hand, except a slide that encloses the barrel. This looks like a problem

ETA: Missed the obvious problem -- it has a pistol grip and is a rifle! Funny thing about the CA law is that anything with <16" barrel is considered a pistol, so you can have a weapon that is both a pistol and a SBR at the same time. That makes no sense to me. It pretty much makes it impossible to have a SBR that does not violate SB23, since you have to comply with both the rifle and pistol sections of SB23.

Does anyone have a reference for where CA specifically defines what a rifle is?
