2018 CA COMPLIANT AR15
MAKING RIFLES COMPLIANT CAN BE TRICKY …LET ME HELP YOU
There are 2 main paths you can take to make your semi-automatic, center-fired rifle legal in 2018:
In order for a rifle to meet the requirements of being fixed magazine, the magazine of the firearm must be permanently attached/fixed to the firearm until the action is disassembled. The California Department Of Justice (DOJ) Regulations published by the California Office of Administrative Law (OAL) clearly state that hinging the action open on the front pivot pin of the AR15 and AR variant rifles IS considered disassembly of the action. There are MANY fixed magazine devices available on the market that can be retrofitted to your existing firearms and can be installed when building new firearms in 2018. My personal favorite is the 33.3 Tactical Cal Catch (UnMod) and an LWRC extended takedown pin
In order for a rifle to meet the requirements of being “Featureless” it must lack all features listed as “Features” by California.
This list includes:
Vertical Fore Grip
Thumb Hole Stock
If your firearm does not have any of these features on it, it CAN have a standard magazine release. There are MANY Featureless grips, muzzle devices, fixed stocks, etc. designed to replace these features on AR15’s, AK47’s, etc. My personal favorite featureless option is a Strike Industries MegaFin and Stock Stop, with a Surefire MB-556 muzzle break.
