Thanks for the info cs4160, and I am definitely gonna look into that rainbow shooting range, I heard there's a nice place in jacumba off of the 8 but don't look foward to the drive since I don't have exact directions, I think you shouldn't have to pay to fire your weapon just for plinking but I guess this isnt burger king I can't always have it my way...

Yep that's why I'm saving up for an M1A!

Hey Jack,



If you live in California, make sure you get a California legal M1A... That means no trademark flash suppressor, but an ugly muzzle break/stabilizer and a detachable 10 round magazine.

Hi,

I just wanted to comment on my previous post regarding using a pre ban hi cap magazine with a newly purchased california compliant AR, specifically the 516, but this would apply to any "bullet button" rifle.



DON'T.



Calguns has a great flowchart that can help you navigate the maze of rules,



http://www.calguns.n...d/flowchart.pdf



but bottom line, PC 12276.1 (a) lists 3 tests to determine if your weapon has the characteristics of an assault weapon. Our bullet button gets us passed section (1), the length of weapon gets us past (3), but (2) is the kicker.



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







By my read, once you put a legal pre ban hi cap magazine in your California compliant SIG AR, its now designated as an Assault Rifle. Go straight to jail, do not collect 200 dollars...







By the way, finally gotten around to shooting my 2 week old Sig 516....very very nice. The tool to release the mag was no big deal, the rifle shot far better than my skill level. Not a big fan of the scope, but the actual weapon was exceptional. Very happy with my purchase.

I also live in San Diego and they just said these things when i was buying my rifles.

1) the rifle cannot be under 30" long i think it is for the high caliber rifles that's included with the folding stock folded.

2) It has to have a bullet button instead of a quick mag release/ambi mag release.

3) it can only be semi automatic

4) you cannot hold more that 10rds per mag (this sucks). you could get the larger Pmag's but they are capped at 10rds as well.



here a pic of my toys:

A 30 round magazine will work now with a CA compliant rifle. If you're caught using one, it's a felony. The only thing different about the rifle is the bullet button which locks the magazine in place and it can only be removed by inserting a tool into the recess in the bullet button. You can replace the bullet button with a normal magazine release button if you move out of Kommiefornikstan.

Call Impactguns if you plan on ordering from them. Tell them you live in Kommiefornikstan and that the rifle must be CA Compliant if they offer a model that is CA Compliant it will have the bullet button.
