    Default THIS M-1 CARBINE is illegal...in CA.!!!

    I built this little M-1 Carbine up for my son on his 14th B-Day....20+ years ago. We have had a bunch of fun with it, even after we had to spring for some 'modified' 5 round magazines. NOW THE DAMNED THING IS ILLEGAL IN CALIFORNIA BECAUSE OF A PHUKKING HOLE IN THE PHUKKING STOCK!! Apparently, ANY semi-auto rifle or shotgun with a thumb-hole stock changes the damned thing into a product of the devil and it becomes an assault weapon. Those sorry, no good, ignorant, muscle headed bastards !!!!! Mike

    There are some really stupid laws.

    No grandfathering?? I know Kali is a beautiful state, been there a few times, but you couldn't pay me enough to live there.

    Nice custom stock. 20 years ago, no one would have said anything about changing/modding a classic milsurp.

    OK, now just get a USGI M1 Carbine stock, and put it back in it until sense resumes. Several sources out there, PM me if you aren't getting Shotgun News.

    An annoyance, but not a particularly expensive one. You'll be back up and running for under $50 if you don't mind synthetic or surplus that needs some TLC.

    That stock isn't my cup of tea but I'm sure that you can flip it for at least $50. You may even make a couple bucks at the end.

    Returning it to a military stock is no problem, it's just the idea of the thing. Hell, it was a cute little thing, somewhat unique, and just fun. The stock is an old Fajen obtained in a swap with an old friend, who got it in a swap and then found it to be unusable by him. He's left handed as I am, so the kid got the benefit of that part of the deal. Hell, I think I paid about $100 for the gun back then. Mike

    Ah, yes, the wonderful laws of our ignorant state. So sorry about this.. That is a neat rifle and something with special memories I am sure.

    My dad gave up his ARs due to these dumbasses here.

    BTW, order any ammo you want for it now. 2011 you won't be able to buy ammo, bullets, or magazines here in Kali. Just sayin'

    Glad don't live there, although y'all have some great scenery and the dispensary thing nearly makes up for the draconian gun laws.

    this ar15 is legal in California,

    since the grip is no longer a 'pistol' grip. silly law isn't it. apparently law enforcement agencies nationwide have been warned to be on the lookout for these pink 'assault rifles' in the hands of gangs. more liberal emotion overcoming common sense again. especially when it's not now and can't ever be an 'assault rifle' as there is no full auto selector.

Those that try to go the totally legal route for medicinal use really have to jump thru hoops to obtain their weed. Mike
