awesome. thanks for your help.
On another note. I was on gunbroker.com and saw there was a gun dealer in bakerfield CA that sells CA legal AR's and AK's. You have the choice of having the pistol grip turned in to a shoulder stock and have detatchable mags, Or you can have the pistol grip with those fixed mags w/the special release contraptions.
Is there anyone in bakersfield that has been to the dealer? Or anyone who has a CA legal AR/AK?
how do you reload with those wierd fixed mag releases? i always figured you have to take the upper off yourAR's to reload, and would have to reload sigle bullets in to an ak.my sks takes stripper clips so luckily i dont have to worry.
Those "wierd fixed mag releases" are called bullet buttons. They are simply a magazine release button that you cannot depress with just your finger. You have to use the tip of a bullet, or the tip of a ball point pen, or some other "tool" to release the magazine.
Having to use a "tool" to release the magazine makes it a "non-detachable" magazine per the PC.
So, to reload, you use the tool to release the "non-detachable" magazine, and then slap in another full magazine. When that one is empty, repeat as necessary.
