Default Marlin Camp 9... Ca. legal with "evil" features?

I tried the search...but no amount of methods gave me any info on the Camp 9's.
I've got one my dad gave me quite some time ago. The stock was split (as many are) so I replaced it with a folding stock w/ pistol grip. Of course this makes the gun not legal in Ca.
Is there a way to make it legal to use with that stock.... like the Bullet Button on an AR platform? Any help appreciated!

While I'm on the subject...any idea who makes a nice legal replacement stock, or where to find a nice stock one?

You can either come up with a bullet-button device that turns it into a fixed magazine gun, and only use 10 round or less magazines. Or you can fix the folding stock so that it can't close any more, and put some sort of solar-tactical style handle on it to render it no longer a pistol grip. Then you can use any legal high cap mags that you already have in it.

Whats the OAL with the stock folded? if its less than 30" I dont think a BB would help get the rifle to be compliant.

So basically if I can come up with a way to make it so some sort of "tool" is needed to remove the magazine, and stay with 10rd. mags I should be good to go?

I plan to replace the folding stock with this one if I can get past the quick release mag issue....

The folding stock I have is a POS.

From the looks of it, I can make a simple outer surround to keep fingers away from the mag release, just like the bullet button on the AR's. I might even try using an actual bullet button outer, so the little removable magnetic button "tool" can be put on it when wanted.
Thanks for the info guys!
