I think there is a list of approved lowers or something like that. Asking this over in the California section under the Hometown forum above should yield better answers.

Being in CA, I just went through this.......As long as the lower has a mag eject button that needs a tool....aka bullet tip etc., It's legal. I got a LMT lower from Turners and bought a Rock River upper......also keep that mag at 10. Basically CA = 16" = or + barrel, < or = to 10 rd mag and mag release that needs a tool.

The only restrictions we really have in our lame state is the bullet button and 10 round magazines. unless you want to run a monster man grip you can use a standard mag release.

You also need an Off List Lower.

OP, go to the California HTF here and Cal Guns for the info you need.
