As far as I understand it, a pistol just need not exceed 26Ē, because at that point it becomes a rifle. Iíve seen pistols with everything from 5Ē barrels to 12Ē barrels (..and everything in between). I believe the Law Tactical folding adapter adds to the OAL because it canít be fired while folded.

A pistol never becomes a rifle simply by added barrel length. For a weapon to be a "Rifle" under California law, it must be designed to be fired from the shoulder. Please refer to Penal Code section 17090.

And, when you have a "pistol" that is over 26" you have a Title One Other. Refer to the FA XO-26.

Default New AR Pistol for California, NOT A SINGLE SHOT

You can not BUILD your own that way because it would not be on the roster.

The other way to obtain a AR pistol is to PPT or intra-family transfer it.

Does that mean I can be gifted one from out of state by a family member? As long as itís configured with CA legal parts.

Yes, as long as the out of state relative is direct bloodline up or down from you.
Cousins, uncles/aunts and brothers/sisters don't work.
Relation to you needs to be your parent/grandparent or child/grandchild.

It depends on who the family member is.

FINALLY shot mine today for the first time.

AR Maglock gen 4, and kingpin.

Bcm lpk pnt, some random cheap upper. Just magpul front and rear sights. Was pretty accurate, and most of my shots were 1 handed only.

Want to get a shorter barrel, with a slimmer hg, and a tail hook mod 2

Probably going to take the afg off. No real use in having it. I never touched it, in single handed, or shoulder braced firing.

i love franklin armory and own a CA7, but this is clearly not the first choice for home defense with the bolt action. Other than that this is a very well made firearm! The quality is really nice, its light weight but feels solid.



i do like the two button mag release alot, quicker than the BBs on my RAWs smfh....

So what legal modifications can one make to the CA7? Because its fixed mag and single shot can i add a brace or forward grip?

I mostly just want forward grip, maybe VFG? is this legal?

As long as it's not made semi-auto, these Assault weapon restrictions do not apply:

Quote:
30515.
(a) Notwithstanding Section 30510, “assault weapon” also means any of the following:
(4) A semiautomatic pistol that does not have a fixed magazine but has any one of the following:
(A) A threaded barrel, capable of accepting a flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer.
(B) A second handgrip.
(C) A shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the barrel that allows the bearer to fire the weapon without burning the bearer’s hand, except a slide that encloses the barrel.
(D) The capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location outside of the pistol grip.
(5) A semiautomatic pistol with a fixed magazine that has the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.
However, the NFA is still a problem without it being semi-auto:

Quote:
The “any other weapon” definition excludes weapons designed to be fired from the shoulder that are not capable of firing fixed ammunition or a pistol or revolver having a rifled bore.
However, certain alterations to a pistol or revolver, such as the addition of a second vertical handgrip, create a weapon that no longer meets the definition of pistol or revolver.
A pistol or revolver modified as described is an “any other weapon” subject to the NFA because the weapon is not designed to be fired when held in one hand.

You should not add ANY sort of 2nd grip to a pistol.
Vertical, angled or straight does not make a difference.
Merely the presence of a 2nd grip is the problem unless the gun is over 26" long so it can't be considered a pistol under federal law.

That would be manufacturing a semi auto handgun under CA laws and not allowed.

And what is your statutory reference that shows that a drop tested firearm cannot be modified in such a manner?

IIRC, the Feds require it to be at a 90-degree angle to the handguard for it make the weapon a Title 2 AOW.

Yes, and hand stops are allowed.

So Iíve called around to a few LA FFLís and all of them are telling me that wonít do a pistol transfer on a gifted item from an out of state family member. That say itís a risk to their license and are not willing to take the risk.

Do you know of an FFL in the LA area that will do a transfer?

I'm not in LA, but have dealt with several intrafamilial interstate transfers both on the shipping side (WA and AZ) and the receiving side in the SF Bay area. I've had the best luck with independent FFLs (i.e. not gun stores). Gunbroker has an FFL search function that can provide you with some names. Contact those folks and I'm sure you'll find some that are familiar with the process and willing to help you.

Manufacturing is creating from raw materials. Modifying is what done to an existing firearm. It is legal to modify your legally DROS'ed, rostered manual repeater firearm to function in a semiautomatic manner, as long as you don't run afoul of AW laws.
It is not legal to manufacture a roster exempt single shot form factor pistol, and then modify that manufactured pistol outside of its single shot status (including modifying it to be a manual repeater or a semiautomatic repeater).
