Our most frequently asked
question from California gun buyers...
Q. I live in California and
was looking to buy a California legal AR
using a bullet button...
Its just hard to figure out what ones
you have in stock and which ones can be
made legal and which can not. Is DPMS CA
legal? Can you give me a list of all the
AR15 rifles that are California legal?
We sell California legal "off
listed" ARs and AKs and also other
firearms like the Saiga 12.
"Off listed" firearms are not
banned in California because they are not
included on the California Dept. of Justice
banned firearms list. We make them California
legal for residents of California with the
addition of the bullet button. (Many thanks
to the folks at Calguns for spreading the
word. Calguns.net has also posted an official
letter from the California DOJ firearms
division confirming that such firearms can
be made legal at customer request.)
What does a bullet button
The bullet button is not really a "button"
at all. It is a cover with a hole in it,
and it sits over the mag release. It is
also referred to as a "mag lock."
In order to get the mag to release, you
need to stick a "tool" like a
screwdriver or dowel into the hole in order
to activate the mag release. You could also
use the tip of a bullet for this purpose,
so then you can call it a bullet button.
Note: The bullet button does not change
the way your mags work. To be more clear,
it does NOT turn your rifle into a single
shot by any means. It only affects how the
mags eject from your gun.
How much does the bullet button
- We charge our dealer cost for bullet
button and installation.
- For almost all the rifles this price
is $25, which is our dealer cost for bullet
buttons for all AR15 and AK rifles; however...
- Some bullet buttons may cost us more.
For example, HK USC Carbine bullet buttons
are about $40.
What about the hicap mags?
- We are prohibited by law from shipping
hicap mags over 10 rounds to California.
- If your rifle package states that it
has a mag over 10RD, then the mag will
not be included.
- There is no price adjustment made to
your order in this case and you are not
buying a hicap mag from us.
- We will offer to sell the Calif. legal
10RD or 5RD mags to you at our dealer
cost if you purchase them when you buy
your firearm from us.
What about rifles with folding
- We pin any folding stock so it is not
folding. Therefore, your rifle meets California
length requirements (must be 30 inches
or longer). This is FREE.
- We do not modify collapsible or 6-position
stocks. These are already legal in California
"as is," because when fully
collapsed the rifle is not under 30 inches
Can my firearm be returned
to original condition?
- Yes. Your firearm is actually always
in its originally manufactured condition.
We don't destroy anything. No "manufacturing"
or "remanufacturing" is done at all. Therefore,
if you leave California and want to return
your fireamr to original condition, you
will be able to do so.
Will my warranty still be
- Yes. Your warranty that comes with your
firearm will be valid.
Customer Request for Bullet
Button to make your AR, AK or other firearm
After purchasing your firearm, you need
to request catalog item 1pszBB or another
similar catalog number. This item is the
customer request for installation of bullet
button / mag lock on the firearm already
purchased, after the customer has purchased
the rifle or shotgun. This item pays for
the bullet button and installation for buyers
of rifles and shotguns that need a bullet
button/mag lock to be California compliant.
The bullet button and installation are
available only to our California buyers
of firearms that require a bullet button
to make their modern sporting rifle California
legal. We choose the best bullet button
for your particular firearm as required
by California law after you have purchased
your firearm at PersonalSecurityZone.com.
In the case of this alteration, the work
is being performed at the request of the
customer after the purchase has been made.
The firearm has not been modified previous
to its sale to the customer. There is no
manufacturing involved in the installation
of the bullet button / mag lock. This alteration
is not performed as a regular course of
business or trade, and it is performed only
upon special request of the customer after
the purchase of the firearm. This alteration
is not performed for the purpose of sale
or distribution of the firearm.

current stock for ARs by each of these manufacturers.
Please note that all the DPMS AR rifles
are not California legal at all, because
they are listed on the CA
DOJ banned list by company name. DPMS
had the unfortunate misfortune of being
completely blacklisted when the DOJ list
was drawn up. Firearm models and company
names must be "not-named" on the
list in order to be legal in California.

Ruger semi-auto centerfire rifles include

weapon as per Calif. law. Therefore you

flash suppressor / flash hider (but a muzzle
break is legal in Calif.) and as long as
your Mini-14 has mags that are 10RD or less,
it is legal in California.
