My brother is possibly taking a job in CA. IIRC, you can not have an AR in CA, unless it is specifically CA compliant made?

Man I hope I'm right, because if I am, I'm about to inherit and sweet AR.

You are correct. He could modify it to make it compliant, but it's a hassle to say the least. Fix the mag, 10 capacity, plus some other ridiculous crap that I can't recall off the top of my head.

Congrats on your new AR!

To my knowledge, the CA assault weapons law has been so extensively modified that there is no CA compliant AR in any configuration. Check the CA DOJ website:


http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/


If it is any of these:
AR-15 Series Weapons:

American Spirit
USA Model
Armalite
AR 10 (all)
M15 (all)
Golden Eagle
Bushmaster
XM15 (all)
Colt

Match Target (all)
* AR-15 (all)
Sporter (all)
Dalphon
B.F.D.
DPMS

AR-15

OR ...if it is semi auto, has a detachable magazine and even one of these features:

(A) A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon.
(B) A thumbhole stock.
(C) A folding or telescoping stock.
(D) A grenade launcher or flare launcher.
(E) A flash suppressor.
(F) A forward pistol grip.

OR...is
A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has a fixed magazine with the capacity to accept more than 10
rounds.

OR...is
A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has an overall length of less than 30 inches.

Then it can no longer be legally purchased, imported, transferred, possessed, etc. in CA.

From what I've come up with on the internets...

No pistol grip+no removable mag+flash suspressor=free AR for me!

Enjoy your new job with the Border Patrol, brother, while I enjoy my new wicked black rifle!

Depending on the make/model it may be able to be made CA compliant, but thats pretty doubtful. Most of the major brands have been listed leaving "off list" lower receivers as the only viable platform to build a CA legal AR. Then of course you need a special grip or a fixed mag along with a few other special mods.

By the time you have it "compliant" its no longer an AR.

Fixed, Non detachachable mag with no more than 10 round capacity
No pistol grip/thumbhole stock
No Flash Supressor

At this piont its not as good as a nice Mini 14...unless you are thinking of getting it and doing some 'conversions'...in which case the word felony comes to mind. :whistling:

I hope he goes soon, as he also just bought a few 1000 rounds of ammo.

On one hand I feel bad for my glee in the fact that he has to give up his rifle. On the other, more powerful hand, I feel "too bad so sad" excited for me.

It's nice, Bushmaster, he just got done with the vert grip, light and EOTech.

If your bro is going in the BP, is there some sort of LE exemption??

I really want to argue with all you people dissing California but I have no ammo (lead ammo anyway)

However it is in the 70's and I'm sitting here looking at the pacific (it's not all bad, just mostly)

I would not count your ARs before there hatched. Being in law enforcement there is a good chance he can still bring it here.
There are law enforcement excemptions but I am not sure of all the specifics

Yea, depending on the brand throw a different grip on and for the most part be good to go. And since I think border patrol counts as leo then he can even keep his high caps for it.
