I live in California. Just stating that so no one ask why I would even want to do such a thing..

I just finished building an ar 15. Looking at all the laws and regulations to comply with. From my knowledge I have two options to make my ar legal without having to register it. First would be featureless. The second will be somehow having a fixed magazine(armaglock or something like that)
My question is. Is that correct?
And if it is I am definitely not going featureless. So....
Is a bullet button ok
Or
Will I have to get something like the ARmaglock Or something along that line.

Not sure your laws are, but hopefully you have not built the AR until you understand what they are.

I have moved your topic to the California section as someone from California can help you keep within the laws of your state.

Welcome to the site.

 

First things first.....this is the internet and you will want to do some research of your own to find out the laws for your build. I know first hand how much misinformation is out there. I do not know all the in's and out's of the new laws. I do know enough to stay out of trouble.

 

Not knowing how far along or when you built your gun let me say this.....If you finished this build after 12/31/16 the bullet button is not an option. Your two options are featureless with a standard mag release or featured with one of the magazine locks approved by the new rules.

 

If your gun was built at any time with features and a standard magazine release it's not legal.

 

If your featured gun was built before 12/31/16 you can use a bullet button and then you must register the gun as an assault weapon per the new rules.

 

Do some home work away from the forums and on the actual laws. If you shop around for answers you will land on the wrong one.

I dont know how current this is to CA laws and im not a resident of CA. I figured this might help. I would go to your local FOC and see about getting a copy of current gun laws or go to state website and look up the laws that way.

Libtards have so screwed up your State.  They will not be happy until no one has any firearm and the only way you will be able to defend yourself with be to throw a rock or pick up a stick.  I am glad I live on the other side of the country.

 

That being said, take the advice given.  Either go and look up the new statutes and study them or contact your Attorney General's office.  With my limited knowledge I would say since you have finished or are about to finish your rifle you are going to have to be in compliance.  Maybe IF you bought the lower before 1/1/17 you might be able to skirt around the deadline and be good with a bullet button and say it was a functional firearm before that date.

 

Hope you get it all figured out.

Not quite. When you took possession is what matters. As long as the complete rifle or lower receiver was picked up from the gun dealer by 12/31/16, it can be registered by 12/31/17 and may have "evil features."
