Hell no! A lot of guys on Calguns were tripping over themselves to register and to "vol reg" stuff that didn't need to be registered, at least until DOJ started going door-to-door, and now everyone's panicking instead.

I have Nothing to register

Hell no. Looking at options, right now I'm leaning towards a Hellfighter Mod Kit from Juggernaut Tactical. Anyone have any experience with these?

Have it on 2 of my rifles.. so far I like it, wanted to pair it with the Hogue Freedom kit due to not having the Bolt Hold Open on the last round with the JT.. but I see why they eliminated it, open the action faster than pressing the Bolt paddle THEN Crack the action open. Just one less step I have to worry about lol

Anyone know if there's a way or if there will be a way to see how many registrations are completed? I'm curious about the numbers.

Some are registered, some are not registered (featureless), some are rimfire. Most of the registrations are already done. One registration is still waiting: We had forgotten that you need to upload documentation of residency for *all* registrants to *all* registrations (with mommy, daddy and baby all registering the same rifles that's many dozens of uploads), and we forgot to upload some of baby's forms on mommy's registration, so her registration is being held up by the DoJ. The same rifles are already registered to daddy and baby. The computer system they use is quite insane, but with a lot of patience you can get it to work.

Does my sarcasm meter need calibrating?

Question about an 80% lower pistol build. My friend built a 80% AR pistol a few years ago. He can put a new style cali mag release kit on it and just register it as an existing gun with DOJ with a serial number correct? It has to be done by July 1st I think.... Can someone please confirm or verify this for me? Thanks.

I've seen a few kits like this, think thats how I will be going. Featureless kinda sucks when you are left handed and your spouse is right handed.

Register it like a normal firearm? Yes. Before July 1. After that he could only register it that way with a DOJ-issued serial number. I think there are rules for size, placement, etc. that still apply even when you use your own serial number. He'll need to ensure it's in a legal configuration as well, which for an AR pistol means fixed-mag is the only real option (aside from maybe disassembly).

No, but I'm not sure the benefits of joint registration of a BBAW outweigh the other options of going featureless or fixed magazine. The on-line registration process is indeed AFU.

I think this is a big NO. On several levels. Right off the bat, I've no insight as to the issues regarding registering a home built when it comes to serial number issues. I'm not familiar with the issues on obtaining a serial number, except that if needed to register a BBAW, the number must be obtained before the registration will be accepted.

The registration period is only for BBAWs. Assembly Bill 1135 and Senate Bill 880 require that any person who, from January 1, 2001, to December 31, 2016, inclusive, lawfully possessed an assault weapon that does not have a fixed magazine, as defined in Penal Code section 30515, including those weapons with an ammunition feeding device that can be readily removed from the firearm with the use of a tool (commonly referred to as a bullet-button) must register the firearm before January 1, 2018. However, Assembly Bill 103 has since extended the registration period from January 1, 2018 to July 1, 2018. That said, there is some question in my mind as to whether this is an assault weapon that was lawfully possessed. Based on some of the discussions around the net, if one attempts to register something other than an existing legally possessed BBAW, the legal consequences have been dire.

OTOH, if a legal "rifle" as opposed to "pistol," if one were to utilize either a fixed magazine kit/device or to go featureless, registration would not be required. And IANAL but I don't believe there is any way to create a featureless/fixed magazine AR pistol.

13 days and counting.

I'm reviewing the regs and going through my stuff to make double sure that I am in full compliance prior to the end of the month. Feeling a little paranoid about this. Okay, maybe a lot. It is pretty easy to overlook little things. One gem is that overall length used to be measured from the end of the collapsed stock to the tip of the muzzle device. Not anymore. Now if the muzzle device is removable you measure from the end of the barrel.

I have RAWs and an 03 C&R, and a COE, so federal, state and local law enforcement know. Never had a visit or audit. Not yet. Probably never will. But it can't hurt to be a little paranoid, can it?

Yes, I have RAWs. The attempted mag ban last year was a teaching moment. Lesson learned, in CA the potential of registration equaling confiscation gets more real with every passing year.

None of what I posted is sarcasm, just the truth. Except that the expression "baby" is a bit misleading, as "baby" is legally an adult (over 18), and can therefore own and register rifles (even assault rifles).
