Default High-Point Carbines...legal in CA?

I'm getting conflicting info on if High-Point Carbine's are legal in California. Anyone know for sure? Something about the magazine being in the handle and not forward of it...

I have seen them for sale at Turner's. $299 and no accessories.

From what I understand, Hi-Point carbines are not classified as an assault rifle. It may have some features of an assault rifle but it is a carbine shooting a pistol bullet. I think your safe in that regard.

Thanks guys. You're right, Turners sells them although I just called down there and they wanted $500.00 for the .45 model.

You might want to shop around.
MSRP on the most loaded up model is only $449. The cheapest version is $318 (MSRP). $500 for a Hi-Point ought to be considered theft. Unless they throw in a case of ammo or something like that.
