ya

I die a little everytime I shoot a featureless. I've been down that route and I wasn't impressed.

The standard magazine release and preban 30 rounds mags hardly make it worth it.

A $2 finger pick and I am dropping mags a whole second slower than normal.

May I rephrase the question please? Is there anything about a 16" mid length light profile upper from PSA that is not acceptable in California? I do not intend to build featureless and will install a bullet button and promise to only buy 10 rd magazines. tk

Well there shouldn't be anything wrong legally with "16", "LW" and "midlength".

As far as a PSA CA compliant upper, I'm not sure. Why not check and see if they offer one.

Do not ever call anything affixed to the muzzle a "flash hider". In the Peoples Republic of Kalifornia that device must always be a "muzzle brake". It is all about the terminology and nothing about what the device is actually supposed to do. Best to completely purge the word combination "flash hider" completely from your vocabulary. Think of it like calling a magazine a "clip". Just don't ever do it. Ever.

Having a threaded on muzzle brake is perfectly legal for a 16" or longer barrel.

Oh, and to better answer your question, the upper is no longer the issue it once was these days.

Is the PSA bayonet lug an issue in CA? Of course 5 minutes with a file will solve that.

Bayonet lugs are OK AFAIK.

That's good. Just wondering. I'm spoiled here in Idaho.

BTW, if any of you guys want to come up here, you're welcome. It's the liberals that flood in here that we hate!
