    I just stumbled on this. Apparently I am pretty late on this :o

    Any of you guys have this kit? How is it working out for you? Have you guys gotten any hassle?

    (Non-CAers. Save the CA gun law hate...we are all aware of how much it sucks here. :fawk: )

    I take it you dont browse calguns that often if you are just hearing about them now right? A lot of people have them and they serve their purpose but I guess the general opinion from what I've heard is "it's better than nothing." The other option of course is a featureless rifle with detachable magazines and either the Monsterman grip:

    or U-15 grip:

    but yes, since the definition describes a detachable magazine as "without the use of a tool", and since the bullet button effectivly creates a need for "the use of a tool", all other evil features are legal.

    attachable != detachable ;)

    Both of my ARs have bullet buttons. They work great. Mag changes are obviously a little slower than with the standard mag release, but it beats the alternative of top loading. Also, I like my ARs full featured. No MM or U-15 for me, thanks.

    Yea, I dont like the alternative grips. I am sure the product works well...I would be more concerned with the interpretation of the law. But it looks like I will be getting a couple :big grin:

    A fixed magazine is a fixed magazine. ;)

    Don't forget, with this type of set up, you cannot use a magazine that holds more than ten rounds. :nono:

    and that is why I went with MMGs for both my AR and AK, I like my 30s to much :)

    Anybody else following the thread about getting regular caps legally in CA? Someone needs to open an armored car service :noes:

    That U-15 setup looks really gross.

    Every one of those make me want to vomit, and the absolute fucking idiocy of their necessity makes me want to choke the shit out of people.


    At the same time, the ingenuity behind them is pretty impressive.

    Having the buffer tube out in space like that can't be good for the weapon. That has to cause some weird harmonics that would normally be dispersed through the stock.

    Paging 10% and CWS :noes:

    I think Wes will actually be doing it, since he said it would be a headache to find all the mags people want :rofl:

    The U-15 grip doesn't look that bad to work with. If I had to choose between the two Cali-legal grips, I'd choose that one just for the ergonomics of it.

    And risk is her bastard child.



    Were it me, I'd have my AR however the fuck I please, but not shoot it so I could save up and fucking move.

    If you're old enough to own a gun, you're old enough to take charge of your own life. The independence that firearms give is not an image, it's a heritage, and an icon of personal responsibility.

    You're capable of more than you think you are.. let's put it that way.
