On January 1, 2017, the definition of an “assault weapon” (“AW”) under California law was changed to include firearms which were required to be equipped with a “bullet button” or similar magazine locking device. Prominent 2A law firm Michel & Associates prepared a newer "Assault Weapons" Quick Reference Guide with flow chart for the California Rifle & Pistol Association and the NRA. This guide addresses the new classification of "Bullet Button Assault Weapons", and more importantly, details five options on how to stay out of trouble if you own a newly defined "assault weapon". One of those options they address is "Featureless Build", which we prefer with our CRG-15 Compliant Rifle Grip. This download is here with permission from Michel & Associates, P.C.

Due to the recent ruling (March 29th, 2019) in Duncan v Becerra concerning magazine capacity, we have added these next two graphics to clarify some questions that we've been receiving.

Here is the link to the original Information Bulletin from the California Rifle and Pistol Association about the current situation concerning legalities of standard capacity magazines.

-- We are currently working on some helpful information concerning building featureless rifles and hope to have that here soon.
In the mean time, here are some web links that may be helpful.
Here is a very good video called 5 Reasons Not to Register your AR15. Joel brings up very good points and a real down-to-earth and compelling argument why NOT to submit to California's "assault weapon" registration... especially when there are perfectly good legal options to avoid that. Thanks Joel!
