Either way is OK, but why not send him your fin grip if you don’t need it? Good way to rid of your CA compliance stuff.

What kind of muzzle device?

10 rd magazine?


The wife will be pissed, but Jesus always forgives.

Just be aware that firearms shipped to a purchaser in CA needs to be shipped to an FFL and then transferred to the purchaser. This applies for firearms shipped either from out-of-state or within CA. If you're shipping to another state you should probably check that state's regulations and procedures.

The FFL will need to approve whether or not the firearm is CA compliant before the transfer and the purchaser is eligible (i.e. not a felon, over 21 years old, proper ID, etc) and forwarding to CA Dept Of Justice for a background check and approval.

My advice would be to find an FFL you and the purchaser could work with and ask about the requirements for CA compliance.

I know this is a PITA, but I would hate to read about about another calgunner and his troubles .

both works, ship it with a 10rd mag and you should be g2g with most FFL's.

Tell me, are you this upset about Senator Feinstein's tax shelters and the regular awarding of government contracts to her husband's company?

You really want to verify with the FFL dealer how they are willing to accept the AK47 rifle . It can vary from dealer to dealer .
