"Removable muzzle devices (flash suppressors, muzzle brakes, barrel extensions, etc.), do not count towards overall length or barrel length measurements. However, permanently affixed attachments are considered part of the barrel.

The acceptable methods for permanently attaching a device of this type to a firearm barrel involve (1) using deep-penetrating, full-fusion, gas or electric steel-seam welds or (2) using high-temperature silver solder exceeding 1100 degrees Fahrenheit. Depending on he dimensions of a particular barrel, it may also be possible to permanently affix a device by drilling a blind hole through the attachment and into the barrel wall. A steel pin that is flush with, or below, the outside diameter of the muzzle attachment is then inserted, and the hole welded closed. Tack-welding is not an approved method for permanently attaching a muzzle device to a firearm barrel.

Damnit I fell victim to reading too fast, thanks for the clarification. And I do remember now, only the rear attachments don’t need to be permenant..

Good job and thanks

Can someone clarify for me that after AWR , does the the term LENDING / BORROWING a RAW also include you allowing someone to fire the RAW in your presence at a range...??? ( or does it only pertain to giving said RAW to someone for use NOT in your presence ) Thanks in advance...

The assumption is yes.. though I haven’t read through the regs lately to verify but this is question 9 on the DOJ website FAQ

Quote:
Can I take a registered assault weapon/.50 BMG rifle to a gunsmith for repairs?

Yes. However, you cannot leave it with the gunsmith unless he or she holds an assault weapon permit or BMG rifle permit respectively. Otherwise, you must remain with the firearm while it is being repaired. If the firearm must be shipped to the manufacturer for repairs, a firearms dealer with an assault weapon permit or .50 BMG rifle permit must handle the shipping.
So that should give you an idea that as long as you are present it’s fine

You aren't tracking the conversation.... I only mentioned the X95 buttpad scenario to support the point I was making about the OAL measurement.

California’s previous laws were the shortest possible fireable configuration to the furthest point but only recently began measuring OAL from The shortest possible fireable configuration to the end of the barrel or permenantly attached muzzle device via their new regulations.

The only time a pinned muzzle device was ever required PREVIOUSLY was when a muzzle device was needed to achieve a 16” barrel or removing the threaded barrel feature on pistols
So as in the FN PS90 situation... it comes with a 16” barrel and to make it Cali compliant they used a that god awful barrel extension to make 30” OAL... For RAW the barrel meets the 16” without the extension so according to this IT DOES NOT NEED TO BE PERMANENT for RAW ??? And if Approved for RAW the PS90 in its original configuration meets the 16” barrel length and still meets the OAL of over 26” with out all the Cali compliant stuff will be okay...???

Barrel = 16"
and OAL = 26"
then OK for RAW.

Muzzle device needs to be permed to include it in the measurement.

In order to qualify first for Rifle RAW doesn't it need to be 30" OAL at time of RAW , then can measure to the 16" 26" measurement after approval...

Couple Questions since I'm a bit behind on the new regulations since I stopped paying attention when they kept changing their minds.

Self Built? Does that mean 80% or anything I put together myself?

If Self Built, what is the make and model? Make would be the lower receiver make on an ar-15? or the receiver make on an ak? What about model?

What if I do not know the following information as it was not required for me to keep at the time of purchase.?

"Date acquired (DOJ WANTS THE DATE DROS WAS STARTED)
Acquired from (dealer, private party, family member, etc)"

Do I actually need to remove a flash hider on an AR to get the exact length of the firearm without a flash hider? If not how do I calculate the exact length?

If a lower is marked multi the barrel can be changed later? if it is not marked multi it can not be changed later?

How clear do the pictures need to be? I want to give them the bare minimum since they are making me waste part of my life doing all this stressful stuff.

I got the same message for 2 firearms 1st is a Adams Arms AR and the 2nd is a FNH PS90... Hope someone has some insight so I can make the corrections and get them Registered...

On the Adams Arms AR I marked all characteristics EXCEPT Grenade Launchers Flare Launcher and Semi-Automatic, Centerfire, and Overall Length of Less than 30 inches (measure while rifle is in the shortest possible configuration, in which it will fire)

On the PS90 I ONLY marked Flash Suppressor and Thumbhole stock

You need pictures of the mag release. Did you read the pdf you linked?

Remove "forward pistol grip" for the AR and maybe remove "flash suppressor" for the PS90 since it's a faux can. My angled forward grip went through without "forward pistol grip" selected and I did not mark "flash suppressor" for my faux canned rifle.

Thank you for submitting your application. Based on the photos you provided, there are additional characteristics shown on your firearm that were not marked on the application. Please refer to California Code of Regulations, title 11, section 5471(z) for more information: https://oag.ca.gov/sites/all/files/a...let-button.pdf

So for the PS90 I think I should have Marked Forward Pistol Grip...

Correction sent and will see if they get Kicked Back

I have the urge to mark everything when I register my Tavor SAR. I want them to come back and ask where the grenade launcher is. They probably won't even notice that it doesn't have an adjustable stock either.

They seem to enjoy playing shock the monkey with these application kickback. The silly part is none of these things make any difference as you can change them (except the BB) after you register it.

I used faux suppressor covering to the end of barrel in the notes. They accepted that.
