Took this from another thread. Its left me confused about the law here. I realize this says Pistol and not Rifle. I assume all AR and AK Pistols fall into this category...
Does simply adding a bullet button make these features exempt from being classified as an assault weapon?
Per CA DOJ's Website:
12276.1 (a) Notwithstanding Section 12276, "assault weapon" shall also mean any of the following:
A semiautomatic pistol that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any one of the following:
- A threaded barrel, capable of accepting a flash suppressor, forward handgrip, or silencer.
- A second handgrip.
- A shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the barrel that allows the bearer to fire the weapon without burning his or her hand, except a slide that encloses the barrel.
- The capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location outside of the pistol grip.
