For those who did not pay attention the last 18 months there was one interesting opinion published by CAL-DOJ and accepted by the state. An AR-15 type rifle with its upper and lower halves separate is NOT an assault weapon.

Obviously Im not recommending anyone disassemble their home defense rifle. However if you chose to build a lower into a free state compliant rifle, all you need to do to be legal is separate the upper and lower halves.

Additionally if you registered a BBAW, but have not yet received an approval letter, you might want to separate the upper from the lower until you get the approval letter.

Good advice.

I'm willing to bet some state lawyer could show intent.

Wasn't there something about having a short barrel upper, in storage, which could be shown as intent? Or I'm just talking shit

Constructive intent exists for SBS and SBR federally and probably with the state as well.

Constructive intent does not exist for AW. DOJs regulations, which were accepted by the state of California, specifically state that an AR15 separated into it upper and lower component halves is not an AW.
