Default M1A Bullpup legal?

I have an M1A SOCOM II and would like to consider one of the bullpup kits out there. Are these legal in CA?

The main things you'll have to consider are making sure it has 30" OAL by adding a long muzzle device (I don't how much it is short by) and replacing the mag release lever with one without the lever. In that case, you'll be using a flathead screwdriver to release mags or doing the top loading thing.

The best way to meet your states OAL requirement is to use a 22.0" barreled action. AOL sould be just over 32".
I don't know anything about bullet buttons. There is a 2" butt stock extension, but it adds 14 oz. to an already heavy kit.
I would run SEI's USN/USCG Good Iron muzzle brake on a 22.0" barrel, the one that uses a jam nut.




The OAL of mine with a 16.25" barrel and SEI's SOCOM 16 kit with a suppressor capable Good Iron muzzle brake is 28.0".

I run mine featureless...just make sure you get the 30" OAL (the JTAC spacer helps) and you run a muzzle brake and you are good.

I tried the spacer, but it's added weight was a deal killer.

Those bullpups aren't very photogenic for some reason but they look 10 times better in person.
They are stupid heavy though.

The golden-rod 1st generation Rogue weighed a little over 15 pounds as pictured.

The black Gen II pictured in this thread is closer to 12 pounds.

It would be great if someone came up with a kit that was at least 2 pounds lighter than the Gen II kit...

Thanks everyone. I will look into the suggestions and see if I can get away with the conversion and stay within the rules.
