We CA gun owners have not imposed these laws upon ourselves, I hope you all understand that.Also I hope you know that a lot of us give our time and hard to come by dollars to make sure what has happened to us dosn't happen to you

K.H. Maybe if you read the gun laws you would know that the 50 cal is not banned here. Only the 50 bmg in shoulder fired weapons.

I hope you realize that California has one of the highest gun ownership rates in the nation. Not selling to California would literally be a shot in the foot. Hence the reason armalite made a California compliant weapon

Well, California has some of the most retarded gun laws in the nation. I do feel sorry for those of you who are ardent supporters of the second amendment who are trapped there in the people's republic, but having said all of that, if I was a gunmaker, I wouldn't sell ANY of my guns to ANY GOVERNMENTAL AGENCY (read: law enforcement agency or other "official" entity) in that state. If the government there sees fit to deny its citizens the RKBA, and wants to impose STUPID gun control measures that DO NOT WORK, then I'd do like Ronnie Barrett… Read more »

I am sorry but all weapons manufactures should not build any California compliant weapons, and should not sell to that state at all. If the residence their want these laws let them set up their own factories to build them there."

Rick, what an ignorant and misguided statement! Do you think the California gun owners Wanted these strict laws?! They are forced upon us and we do the best we can to still practice our fundamental rights. Also, seeing as how California is such a large economic force in and of itself, any major gun manufacturer would be missing out on a huge cross section of the market. I don't know who pissed in your Cheerios , but finish up bud, it's not too bad once you get past the taste I hear.

Well, it turns out that the OAL listed on their webpage was an error. Here is their response to my email:

"The information was entered incorrectly and is going to be changed. The website manager pulled the information off a flyer which was incorrect. Thanks for bringing this to our attention."

I checked their website and it has already been corrected:

"Overall Length: 35.5" with Stock Extended, Approximately 32" Collapsed"

Nice job Armalite on the quick fix!!

12276.1. (a) Notwithstanding Section 12276, "assault weapon" shall also mean any of the following:

(3) A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has an overall length of less than 30 inches.

If the OAL of this rifle is 29.5 inches with the buttstock collapsed, then it isn't CA compliant (minimum OAL of a rifle must be at least thirty inches in any configuration in which it may be fired). And why doesn't Armalite offer this in the format that they pioneered: midlength, with one of their excellent stainless steel barrels?

WARNING!! This is an Assault Weapon in California and is NOT california compliant:

California State law states:

12276.1. (a) Notwithstanding Section 12276, "assault weapon" shall also mean any of the following:

(3) A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has an overall length of less than 30 inches.
http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/dwcl/12275.php

In California, the minimum overall length is always measured with the stock in its fully collapsed position. If the overall length of the stock in its collapsed configuration is 29.5 inches, then it violates PC § 12276.1 (a)(3) listed above.

I have emailed Armalite regarding this.
