California Legal AK47 collection
A review with pictures
My name is Chris and I am from California.
As many of you know, we have some really stupid laws out here, but we make do where we can.
I am huge fan of Bulgarian and Polish AK variants, and this is my current collection of Arsenal inc and Armory USA AK rifles.
The AK rifle on top missing the furniture is my current Polish project built on a Armory USA 1.6mm receiver using.
I am currently in the process of building 1 Bulgarian AK74 on a DCI receiver this time and I am looking at picking up a .223 early Arsenal K101. Plus I have a couple of Tantal builds in the hopper.
Pistol Grips are against the law unless you make the rifle into a fixed magazine configuration by simply pinning the mag release so it cannot be utilized and it has to pinned in a way that you have use a tool to remove the pin.
Also, we can only have 10 rnd magazines.
After Jan 1, 2007, the CA DOJ cannot list anymore rifles on their assault weapons list (Kasler List) and therefore any rifles/receivers that are not on the list here are perfectly legal as long as it does not have High Cap Mags, Pistol Grips with functional detachable mag etc.
Like I said, Stupid Laws, but we get by.
Actually shooting the AK's minus a PG is allot like shooting a SKS.
How can you reach the trigger if your hand is on the stock?
It is not hard at all, unless you have small hands.
It is allot like shooting a SKS, the only difference is you feel more of the slap when the AK cycles, it is something that takes a little getting used to.
Well no PG, is better than no rifle at all, but there are many gun owners in here in Kalifornia that are working hard to get some of our stupid laws off the books, but of course this will take allot of time..
