Hey TR, Thumb hole stocks are illegal out here as well. The new 'workaround' for a detachable clip is a button, you push a shell into to drop the clip..
Drop the MAGAZINE
... Not the 'Clip'....
Let's not get the anti-gunners after end block clips for M-1 Garands and stripper clips for everything else!
And YES, I saw those, but not being from CA, I had to ask what they were when I saw them!
The best one I saw was a 90 round delta drum under an AR reciever...
With an aluminum strap welded under it, front to rear to keep the drum from being 'Removable'...
You simply opened the rifle, used stripper clips to load up 90 rounds, and whacked away for the next week or so until it was empty again!
By ATF standards, and by CA standards, that was a 'Non removable, INTERNAL MAGAZINE, so it wasn't covered under the Clinton 'Assault Weapons' ban!)
Oh and AR-15 lowers are way backordered out here! Last time I looked they are going for $250.
I just purchased two for $125 each this weekend.
No shortage around here yet...
I have about 10 very good quality receivers on order, but I sold more rifles than I expected this month, so I just purchased a couple of receivers at the local gun store to hold me over...
I didn't think AR style rifles were legal in CA at all?
Don't they have the 'Military & Assault Weapons Ban'?
I haven't lived there since '94, so I'm not all up on the In's & Out's of the 'left coast' laws...
I live in one of the 'Notches' of the 'Bible/Rust' belt, and anything short of nuclear equipped guided missiles for cub-scouts is legal...
As a O/T do you know a good scope mount for my Mini-14? So far all the after-market stuff I have tried is junk.
My favorite maker is out of business, but Badger Ordnance used to make one that I liked almost equally as well.
Expensive, but worth every penny if you intend to make a tack driver out of it.
Speaking of Mini-14's, I picked one up at the auction Sat.
Stainless, with factory folding stock, orignal box, case, extra mags, ect.
Got it for $495 while my $450 AR's were selling for $1,800 to $2,500 !!!!!
I'll never know what people are thinking!
Picked up a little rim fire shooter too!
Henry 'Golden Boy' in .22LR! Got it for about $100 of dealer cost ($275) and I had been wanting one for a LONG time, so now I have one!
They shoot GOOD! I like them!
I'm WAY into the older guns,
Stevens Favorites, Crack Shots, Marlin Gold Trigger,
Lots of brass frame, muzzle loading pistols, rolling block & falling block rifles, 'Cowboy' guns, stuff like that!
The 'Assault Weapons' pay the bills, while the 'Antique' stuff puts a smile on my face!
Rimfires, especally .22 LR won't break your shoulder, budget or ear drums!
You can still go shoot all day for $20 worth of ammo!
I'm looking for a .17 HMR right now.
I bought a .17 Mach2 by mistake a while back, and finally got around to shooting it...
WHAT A GREAT FUN RIFLE!
It's DEADLY ACCURATE, cheap to shoot (about $7 or $8 for 50 rounds around here) and it barely makes noise!
Makes a REAL MESS out of crows, cats, rats, ground hogs and prairie dogs too!
I've got a feeling a .17 WMR will all but retire my .22-250 for 'Varmints' about the same way my .17 Mach 2 has pretty much retired my .22 Mag for 'Plinking' and short range, small varmint control!
