Are the Hi-Point carbines legal in California? I have yet to see one except on HP's website. I'd like to get one, but I don't want to go through the trouble for nothing. Any ideas?
Wrong. If it has a detachable mag and at least ONE of three features, flash hider, pistol grip/thumbhole stock or folding/telescoping stock.http://www.hi-pointfirearms.com/dealer_locator/dealer_results.asp?state=CA
A list of dealers in CA. Good luck!
P.S. Most firearms that are banned get banned by having 3 or more features that are considered "assault weapon features". Hi-Point carbines only have two of the usual listed features: Detachable magazine and pistol grip.
