Default Calif Compliant Question

Can someone please tell me, in simple terms, what needs to be done to make an AR15 legal to own in California?

Register it.
Remove "evil features"
Fix the magazine to force an open action reload
Bury it deep in your backyard.

(The last one is a joke.... or is it)


In my humble opinion, removing the features is the best
Muzzle device
Fixed stock
Grip wrap or thordsen type set up.

Simple terms?

OK.

1) Have the weapon configured so the magazine cannot be released unless the gun must be disassembled - current versions require opening the stock-end assembly pin.

2) Configure the weapon without 'features' - pistol grip, collapsible stock, flash hider.

3) for a gun owned in 2016, don't do any of that - register it.

Will simply removing the pistol grip deem the rifle featureless?
Why register rifles purchased in 2016?

$29 grip, $7.99 barrel cap and a 5 cent screw to fix the stock.

The rest requires forms, fees and subservience. Excremento wants that from you.

If I do number 2, do I have to have the magazine locked in place and break action to load?

Negative, if you do option 2 you will run as a standard rifle
Standard mag release, no break action, no fixed mag.

So many sticky threads with diagrams and flow charts and the above and above post answered them with a simple questions.

Much appreciated!!!!!

And in working with one platform AR10 - juggernaut has a pretty nice compliant buttstock.

Pistol grip is 1 of many features that can be on the rifle.

NONE OF THE FOLLWOING

Pistol grip
Flash Hider
Adjustable stock
Forward Vertical Grip
Folding Stock
********************
To simplify, remove your pistol grip( what about your safety selector function) or replace with a featureless model
Remove or replace your flash hider
Remove adjustable stock, permanently fix it, or replace for a fixed

Once all features are removed, remove your CA BB and replace with a standard mag release. Pat yourself on the back and call it a day.


Reasons to register a rifle purchased in 2016 is because they know you have it and have record of it anyways. Unless you convert it then you will be in violation without registration.

I am just giving my opinions. Verify everything before you remove or add any items to your rifle.

If you are bench shooting or prone you should try the Gen III Thordsen. I am hearing good things about some modifications they did to the ergos.

Plus this eliminates the need for a new Stock AND grip. Thordys are all in 1

Would removing gas tube and plugging gas block allow me to keep features. Essentially making it a pull back bolt action rifle

Given that the regulations state that what would be an AW but is missing a crucial component (other than the magazine) isn't an AW, that would most likely be ok.

These laws apply to SEMI AUTO center fire rifles.

You now have a single shot rifle without the gas block

Thank you much Calico. I looked them up and I like that style. Being a lefty, I feel I will have a harder curve with compatible stocks.
