    Ok, can someone please tell me what a bullet button is? I keep hearing the term but don't know what it means.

    It's Californias answer to fast mag changes on semi autos.

    I bought a ar a few years ago and living in California I had heard of it but never really paid much attention cause I'm for Texas and never had to deal with any of that stuff there. I got home and was messing with my new toy and could not figure out how to eject the mag so i took the rifle back to where I bought it told them my problem they said you didn't get a bullet button when they got me one I had to laugh its a little button with a magnet on it and in calif if you have the BB in the rifle while you have it in your car it is a class 3 felony in calif I would love to move out of this state I hate it here but my job keeps me here for awhile any ways

    Honest question.

    I'm not advocating breaking laws, I'm honestly curious, as I've been blessed with never seeing a bullet button.

    How easy is it to get around the bullet button?
    Could you just pop in a homemade grommet / plug that allows it to function like a real release?

    I'm assuming its a mag release button 'cover', machined or welded to the gun that has a small hole to allow a tool to be inserted into said hole to depress the actual release button.

    Okay. I just watched the YouTube video...

    Yeah, how ****ing moronic!!!!!

    As an engineer, what angers me, is that some engineer probably proposed that awful idea. I highly (super mega ultra highly) doubt that a liberal retard thought up that idea.

    Yeah, because firing at unarmed people for 20 minutes before cops arrive is going to be impeded by that stupid thing.

    The whole bullet button thing was created by the manufacturers to get around the CA law that said the mags had to be fixed to the receiver and a tool was required to detatch them.

    I know it's a real ballbuster but when you think about it, it's actually kind of ingenious.

    They make some kind of device to help get around the bullet button. I think it just goes around your finger, and let you push the button without having use a bullet. Someone here had one, and they said it takes like a second longer to change mags with it than it does with a regular AR.
    So it takes 2 seconds to change a mag instead of 1. :rolleyes: Typical liberal logic.

    Bullet Button is a mag release on an AR 15. They should put those into voting booths to eject candidates and sitting lame ducks in congress you don't want. :D

    well, if this proves anything, it's that the gun manufactuers will find a way to skirt around any laws and bans, to keep making the weapon platforms we all love, such as the AR15.

    I'm sure that California lawmakers thought they were pretty smart when they said "weapons with detachable magazines are now illegal, you must now be required to have a permanently affixed magazine that can only be removed with tools" I'd bet that when they came up with that, they thought "this is perfect, assault rifles will no longer be allowed to be sold here!"

    then the gun maker said "tool? hmm...define tool please? ok, I give you a tool, I call it a bullet. you now need to use a bullet to release the magazine"

    and they kept cranking out AR15s in California.

    I can't tell where your sentence starts or ends, so I added bold to what I *THOUGHT* was a complete sentence instead of 2 separate ones.

    anyway, so is it an actual tool that is magically the same shape as a bullet?

    it's magnetic so it sticks to the rifle? but the rifles are either plastic or aluminum, so what does the magnet stick to? is the button made out of steel, and then the magnet sticks to the button, and then you can operate it like a normal mag release?

    if its illegal to have the button in the car at the same time as the rifle, how do you get the weapon home from the gun store? how do you transport it to the range?

    stupid question, how does the bullet button stop one from using a 100 round ammo drum? I know commiefornia has a hi cap mag ban, but let's say it's a preban drum mag and is totally legal.

    California's law states that any gun that has a bullet button cannot be outfitted with a 10+ round magazine, pre ban or not. Plain and simple. Just don't do it.


    Once a magnet attaches to the magazine lock device and makes the magazine droppable without the use of a tool, you have created an "aw" (asualt weapon). Possession of an unregistered aw is a felony. Please do no use a magnet in Cali. Please do not say its ok to use one in the state of California.

    The law will not nor will ever prevent bad people from doing bad things. Its up to good people like ourselves to know and obey the law and stay out of jail.
