    It would be handy to have a tacked thread containing CA gun regs. I think this question will be coming up a lot.

    For NFA stuff the short story is that SBR, SBS, and AOW are OK as long as they are C&R eligible and not "assault weapons" (which many are). Machine guns and DDs are technically legal, but are at the sole discretion of the DOJ, so only a few well-connected and highly regulated companies (that rent to the entertainment industry) can have them.​
    For anything more specific, a good lawyer with some serious CA gun-law experience is going to have to get in on this.​

    Now I'm curious as to which guns fall into the SBR/SBS/AOW and C&R category :D

    I've seen some nice SBR C&Rs, mostly pistol/buttstock setups (Broom-handle Mausers, Lugers, and some Colt SAAs, and one really sweet Browning High Power) and a few SBS coach guns. That's about as exotic as it gets here without crossing the grey line of legality.

    Now illegal NFA toys I've seen a lot of. My dad was a bomb-tech back when he was active, so he got sent in to all the "arsenals" to make sure any explosive goodies were disposed of. Mostly militant anti-government types. I remember one call he went to had a stockpile of LAW rockets and .30 cal machineguns (M60s IIRC). Cool pictures.

    Then there was the group that tried to blow up Suburban Propane in '99, which would have leveled a 3mi radius (and that was the conservative estimate) and been the biggest terrorism attack in US history by a long shot. That's a big DD.

    Rockets? Geez. Makes you wonder what's really available on the black market.
