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.
yup, semi-auto SBR's are almost impossible witout violationg SB23. Even if you go featureless or fixed-mag, you have the <30" rule that basically makes getting a tax stamp useless.

Even though it is in 12020, and refers to "as used in the this section (12020), since it is defined in no other section of the code, 12020(c)(20) applies code wide.

Sure can. People have registered 1911s and glocks as SBRs so that they can put detachable shoulder stocks on them.

Do you want an AOW or C&R SBS/SBR in CA?

No posts of mine are to be construed as legal advice, which can only be given by a lawyer.
