As the June 30 deadline fast approaches for AR-15 and other rifle owners to register, going featureless is another option to avoid registration.
June 30 is the last day before the law changes and requires AR-15 owners to be compliant with the new laws and regulations.
The State of California is mandating three options: go featureless, install a fixed magazine or register your weapon.
We at Cross Armory strongly recommend against registration, thus advocate for a fixed magazine solution or going featureless.
The featureless option, per the state, requires an AR-15 owner to be California compliant in several ways.
As has been thoroughly documented and discussed with gun enthusiasts over the years, AR-15 owners may not have numerous features including pistol grip or adjustable buttstock. We have developed the STOCK LOCK to ensure California compliance with regards to the adjustable stock portion.
It attaches to any point on the buffer tube and can be easily uninstalled if you sell your weapon or move to a gun-friendly state.
NOTE: The state considers any semi-automatic, centerfire rifle to be an “assault” weapon if it has any of the following:
- No fixed magazine
- Pistol grips (beneath action or forward)
- Thumbhole stock
- Adjustable stock
- Grenade launcher or flare launcher
- Flash suppressor
- Magazine that accepts more than 10 rounds
- Rifle less than 30 inches
Best of luck to you as you retrofit your AR. Please reach out to us if you have any questions about the law and your options.
