Default My Potato Guns

Kind of an old video but still my biggest build, and a smaller one.
I call it the Apple Gun, because its favorite ammo is apples.


Quite simple: Irrigation valves switch air as fast as water.

Under current CA laws, a firearm with a non-rifled barrel that has a barrel length of less than 18" or an overall length of less than 26" is considered an unconventional pistol. [PC 17270]

It is CA illegal (felony) to import, make, transfer, or possess an unconventional pistol in CA. [PC 31500]

BATFE approved Title 2 AOW [PC 17710(a)] and CA DOJ Dangerous Weapons Permit holders [PC 17720, 17725, & 17730(c)] are exempt from CA unconventional pistol laws.

Conclusion...

The Can Cannon upper by itself (unattached) is CA legal.

Installing a Can Cannon upper is only CA legal when attached to a BATFE approved Title 2 AOW or when installed on an AR15 pattern receiver that was registered as a "pistol" by a CA DOJ Dangerous Weapons Permit holder for business reasons (make/transfer to Gov/Mil/LE agencies or for use as a prop in the entertainment industry).

While in CA, installing a Can Cannon upper on an AR lower that was DROS'd/registered as a "rifle" or as a "rifle, receiver" would be making a illegal SBR and an illegal unconventional pistol.

While in CA, installing a Can Cannon upper on an AR lower that was DROS'd/registered as a "pistol" or as a "pistol, receiver" would be making an illegal unconventional pistol.

It is CA illegal to use it with any type of explosive, incendiary, and tear gas type projectile.

Unless the combustion is black powder. Black powder weapons over .50" are legal in CA. I used to make bowling ball mortars 20ish years ago.
