You need to get your information from the CA Dept of Justice, and not from random strangers. CA does permit SOME SBRs, and there are specific restrictions on AR style rifles. Now, whether you can get your local Chief Law Enforcement Officer to sign approving it is another matter entirely, and you still need to do the Federal transfer, payment of transfer tax, etc.
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

Come on man, its barely legal to own a LBR in CA

Seriously, C3 nailed it as usual.
"The whole of the Bill (of Rights) is a declaration of the right of the people at large or considered as individuals.... It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)

"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." - George Washington

I mentioned in another thread that they have the restrictions and I think the 14.5 inch barrel has to have a welded muzzle brake/flash hider to meet the restrictions of California on length, but yes checking is the best option to verify the information you've gotten.
