This may sound dumb, but since it is in Oregon, can I take it to a gun shop or smith or something and essentially say, 'can you make this CA legal?'
An Oregon smith may or may not know how to make it legal.
Given that HP is generally pretty cheap, I'm not aware of any mag-locks made for them, but that doesn't mean that one doesn't exist, or a good smith wouldn't be able to fabricate something.
Basically, all that has to be done is the mag release needs to be restricted so that it can't be actuated with a finger.
You're legal if you need a "tool" such as the tip of a bullet (bullet tip is actually codified in the PC as an exemption intended for the fixed-mag SKS) or some similar object that is smaller than a fingertip.
Assuming the HP is a traditional pushbutton release, it shouldn't be too hard to fabricate a block for it.
