    A little confused here:
    Looking into a CZ pistol, went to the official CA approved list and read that the CZ TS pistol IS approved for sale in CA- BUT that pistol is high cap mag (16 rnds I believe) pistol.
    What am I missing? Can't find an "option" for a CA approved, 10 rnd mag version. Anyone know what's up with this?

    I know this doesn't help but.... Not familiar with the laws there but it sounds like the pistol is approved but not the mag. (Are you restricted for having normal capacity magazines?) Another words if you can't find a LOW CAPACITY magazine, you can have the pistol, you just can't have the magazine. Therefor you can't shoot the pistol (other than single shot) until you find a LOW CAPACITY magazine. Laws don't always make sense. Gun laws NEVER make sense.

    There is no such thing as an "option" for a CA approved, 10 round magazine version under CA law. Under CA law it doesn't matter whether the pistol can accept standard capacity magazines, they just can't be sold with standard capacity magazines. CZ will ship the pistol to CA with 10 round magazines.

    If you buy one in CA it will come with 10 round magazines. If I buy one in CO that same pistol will come with standard capacity magazines. That's it.

    Now go buy it! :)

    Thanks for the straight up reply. Guess I need to keep more current on what's what with regard to CA regs. Boy, did I have it all messed up- I thought that "CA approved" meant that the frame was altered to only accept specific 10 round mags made for it, and that was why it's so expensive for the mfgs to produce a CA compliant gun.
