No doubt many of you have received an email from gunbroker.com about this device.

 

 

California DOJ has been willing in the past to provide a written ruling on these things, as they did with the bullet button.  We'll see if they'll cooperate again.  What I find so amusing to watch is politicians who agonize over a ban and finally jam it through, and then enterprising companies invest a way to mostly avoid the ban.  It has to be frustrating for them :-)

 

I don't see anything here that says it's a permanent change, nor does the CA law require that.  There is only this 1 year window to register and, if modified to not fall into their assault weapon category, it cannot be un-modified later.

I'm not sure if this will be compliant since you can easily holding the button while rapid firing.

More neat devices for the AR market.
This is a single shot rifle. I hope one of our forum sponsors will stock them soon!

It appears you have to release it each time.

If not, I think it could be made to work that way.

If you have to do something besides pull the trigger to discharge a round, it is no longer an AW under the current law.

Not to worry, the bottom dwellers in Albany will find a way to amend the law or add another regulation.

They never cared about you or your gun rights or that you have this or that gun. They only cared about being able to put another bullet point on for their campaign poster. We wring our hands endlessly about things that they never had a second thought about.

This has been around for a while from a few companies.  The problem is that holding your finger on the bolt catch will allow the rifle to operate normally.  That makes it's legality questionable at best.

Like a Pump shotgun/rifle the state can make another reason to ban a firearm because the subsequent shots are easy.

It says right in the video that holding your hand on the button does NOT let the rifle operate normally. You still need to release it and hit it again. Did you watch it?

They put a box over the bottom.  So not you can't manually lock the bolt back.  Points for creativity, and it does move it more in the direction of legal.

If I wanted a single shot I would buy a bolt gun, a lever gun, or a pump gun.

A single shot AR goes against the laws of nature!
