    I believe 707 is correct.

    If you want the best info on California gun laws go to Cal Guns and ask on their forums. They have the most knowledgable people on CA gun laws.

    Keep in mind that California also has a revised handgun roster now and they have been adding and deleting handguns and its very difficult to keep up.

    If you are ever confused or in doubt about the legality of a firearm in California just resort to the default answer of "its illegal" or "its legal now but will be illegal in a few weeks"
