    No semi auto rifle or carbine is legal if the magazines are removable, regardless of the # of bullets they hold.The OLL Ar-15s are sold for their evil black looks only.The magazines must be permanently held in place, usually with a screw. The hi-point carbines would have to be redesigned to meet California regulations.

    Wrong. I own and still can buy semi autos rifles with detachable mags inclueding OLL AR and AK style rifles at several gunstores in CA. They can not have flash hiders or pistol grips if they have detachable mags. For OLLs the best method for me is the Monsterman grip [http://www.monstermangrip.com/] though others have gone fixed mag or "bullet buttons".

    Someone was offering Hip-Point carbines for sell to CA folks on the Calguns site [http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/index.php] converted with the bullet button to make them legal here. I personally do not like the BB method and since the mag goes in the grip on a Hi Point it is not a design that can be made "gripless" like ARs or AKs so I did not get one.

  8. Wierd im from cali and thats where my family is and as far as I know when they lifted the assualt rifle ban it became legal to own an assault rifle. I will have to chat with my father on this as he is a lawyer but he has always had assault rifles when I was growing up and I know he still does now. I honestly dont know why you could not buy a hi-point carbine.

    CA has it's own AW ban besides the Federal one that sunseted. If your dad owned some before the ban and registered them as per law as AWs he would be allowed to keep them legally. The only way to get a AR or AK style rifle in CA now is if you go gripless, Monsterman grip with no flash hider ect OR fix the mag OR use a bullet button. The Hi-Point carbine is a NO NO because it has a detachable mag AND a pistol grip and since the mag is in the grip it is kind of hard to do away with the grip unless you are comfortable with a bullet button .

    The best thing Hi-Point could do for us Cali guys is to make a carbine with a rifle type grip/stock that took Glock mags since everyone I know stocked up on Glock mags before the 10 round limit was imposed.

    I thought bullet buttons were still "gray area". It's not exactly illegal, but it's not exactly legal either. Has there been any rulings on this yet?
