Default Cali complaint AR-15 to a standard AR-15

I recently purchased a Cali complaint AR-15 thinking that the only differences was the 10 round mag. Unfortunately that is not the only difference. They also require the rife to be out fitted with a bullet release instead of a mag release(stupid, I know). I called my local gun smith thinking there was an easy solution and the idiot told me I had to replace the entire lower unit a $300 fix. I refused to believe that and called S&W and the gunsmith told me that is ridiculous and there is no reason to replace the lower unit that I just need to have a gunsmith drill out the bullet release and equip the rifle with a mag release. A 15 min job max. I took rifle to a different gun smith and now my AR-15 with a purchase a standard mag is now a standard AR-15.

what model do you have?

s&w i assume? If so, you may be only partially screwed.......I S&W epoxies their bullet buttons in. I've heard you can drill it out. Best of luck.
For standard bullet buttons they a special tool for install/removal.

i guess i was way off here, but i thought california gun laws prohibited many other features of the AR.

i thought flash hinders, pistol grips, and other features were controlled in addition to mag capacity. this "bullet button" seems kinda new, and i thought the other fetures of the s&w were restricted.

being a texan, it really doesn't matter to me but i was just curious?

I think they do, but those are things that you can fix relatively quickly from the comfort of your own home, without having to call in an expert.

but doesn't "fixing" those things make them out of compliance in cali?

how does s&w make a "compliant" cali model if pistol grips are restricted? their compliant madel has a pistol grip and flash hinder. i thought these feature were not allowed in cali? am i wrong?

I really don't know. I absolutely refuse to enter socialist countries such as Cali or Chicago.
