    Any "assault similar" rifles that are California approved?

    I know that the "Black rifles" are considered evil in CA, but since I may have to take a job, either permanent or Locum tenens in CA, I thought that I would ask. I would hate to have to sell my AR15, AK47, and Socom II, but I figure that I would have to. At one time, the Mini14 was ok with no more than a 10 round magazine, but it's been 6 or 7 years since I went shooting with a friend in CA, who has since passed on due to cancer. Is the mini 14 still legal, or any other?

    Hell Kitten AR-15 - evil black rifle meets cute and cuddly

    The pink is probably overkill.

    Here's a blog:

    AR15.Com probably has a good "hometown" section for CA.

    Very nice, matiki , and thanks! If I don't find any rifles currently on the market that are CA legal, I may have to have one built for me. I would also want a letter from him explaining why it was CA legal, to avoid potential run ins with an LEO. I want to be able to give an officer documentation as to why it is legal.

    wow.... the Hell Kitten blog was a heck of an entertaining read. I think I just blew away 30 minutes reading all the drivel...kind of like a bad book that you still just can't put down. Interesting gun project though. Ya gotta love creativity.

    If it was me I wouldn't take the job in California....or at least maintain resident status of another state so you can keep your guns there (and buy more there to keep there).

    10 round mag limit, no flash hiders, and the choice between a "Monsterman grip" or a "bullet button" from what I can tell.

    If I have to choose between 10 rounds of 5.56mm and 8 rounds of 12 gauge buckshot, I'll pick the buckshot. Shotguns aren't illegal in CA unless they have a pistol grip.

    Post This Is CA Legal

    From time to time you might just want to go over to Gunbroker.com and type CA Legal into the search block & see what pops up.

    Well, I don't particularly want to take a job in California- I moved away from there 4 years ago. But I've developed this annoying habit that I have to submit to on a regular basis. It's called eating, and I've found that if I don't eat several times a day, I get these withdrawal symptoms- stomach growling, generalized weakness, weight loss, etc. If I do take a job there, my wife would stay here in Vegas, and I would come home on weekends. Unfortunately, the housing market here has fallen through the floor. Great if you want to buy, but terrible if you need to sell. I asked her if she would like to move to another area- New Orleans, Florida, etc. She said that she would, but the problem is the house. I suggested renting it (she has 4 other rental houses here in Vegas, but unfortunately, the taxes, homeowners association fees, etc would make it impractical.

    check out: Calguns.net

    There are lots of evil black rifles that are CA legal. Fixed stock, no flash hider, some sort of alternate pistol grip... functionally identical, but meets the laws. Don't quote me exactly, but it is possible.
