Default Folding pistol brace instead of fixed stock on a featureless build?

I am considering building a featurless Brownells BR180 by changing out the flash supressor for a brake, using a featurless grip like the Sparrows or BoAR and a fixed buttstock.

Then it occurred to me last night, what if I used a folding pistol arm brace instead of a buttstock?

Would that be legal? Legal but too risky? Completely illegal? ???








*of course what I really want to build is a 10" BR180 in 300 Blackout with a folding brace and a supressor.

Under CA laws...

If the firearm has a rifled barrel and is redesigned/intended to be fired from the shoulder, then it's a "rifle". [PC 17090]

A semi-auto centerfire rifle with an arm stablizing brace installed needs to be configured so that it complies with CA assault weapons laws for rifles.

If the arm stablizing brace folds/telescopes; then the semi-auto rifle needs to operate using a fixed magazine or the arm stablizing brace needs to be fixed so that it can not fold/telescope.

If the semi-auto centerfire rifle with the arm stablizing brace has an overall length of less than 30" with the brace folded/collapsed; then it needs to have the overall length extended by permanently attaching a muzzle device and/or fixing the arm stablizing brace so that it can not fold/telescope, so that the overall length is 30" or greater.


If the firearm is not a handgun and is not designed/redesigned/intended to be fired from the shoulder, then it needs to be configured so that it complies with CA assault weapons laws for "others".
Which means, it needs to have an overall length of 30" or greater (with the brace folded/collapsed and non-permanently attached muzzle device removed) and operate using a fixed 10 round magazine.

Well so much for that insomniac staring-at-the-ceiling hair-brained idea!

Thank you!
