Featureless

Featureless rifles legal in California

As of July 01, 2018, Registration in California is no longer an option! If you have a semi-automatic center-fire rifle with a detachable magazine in California, you will want to make sure it is featureless.

A featureless rifle is a semi-automatic center-fire rifle having a detachable magazine, but does not have any of the following:

  • A pistol grip protruding below the action

  • A flash suppressor

  • A collapsible stock

  • A folding stock

  • A forward pistol grip

The FN SCAR 16S below is an example of a featureless rifle that is legal in California.

Some of the methods used to meet the requirements of a featureless rifle in California are:

  • A Kydex grip-wrap can be added to prevent the thumb from wrapping around the pistol grip.
  • A muzzle brake designed to reduce recoil and muzzle jump can replace a flash suppressor.
  • The stock can be mechanically fixed so it cannot fold or collapse by hand.
