Judging by the fact that it is a common feature to all of their "California compliant" lowers, it seems that the purpose of the fin is to render the grip technically no longer a pistol grip, since you can't wrap your thumb around the back of it. Perhaps that is what is necessary to satisfy California law in that regard.

I don't know..but the only that I can come with is an adapter to the grip to make it streamline, so the your rifle doesn't get hang up on your rig in a firefight. Or if you have your rifle sitting on your lap provide a nice place to place a cup of coffee!?

Man I thought Jersey was bad, I wonder if that is really the reason, I guess it must be, Wow.

"Or if you have your rifle sitting on your lap provide a nice place to place a cup of coffee!??"

Its probably the only good use for it.

One thing I never realized was how different each states gun laws are. The boards that I visit have really given me an education. Living in a very gun freindly state, (for now) has made me very nieve to all the restrictions some of you folks have to deal with. One thing for sure, I will never live in California!

Its horrible, I live in NJ right on the border of NY. There is a beautiful indoor range right over the border in NY where I could go pistol shooting and it would take me no time at all to get there except that I could not go there without breaking the law. If you live in another state you can not stop in NY legally with firearms even if you own them legally in the state you are from, you can pass through NY but not stop and forget about NYC you can not even drive through NYC with a firearm in your car if you are from another state. Unless you have a NY state handgun permit you can not legally handle a handgun in NY even if you have a carry permit from another state. Oh, and they do not issue permits to non-residents.

I am in California. My ACR came to me with two modification. 1. The 30 round Pmag was replaced with a 10 round mag. 2. The magazine release button was replaced with what's called a bullet hole button which required you to use a bullet to release the magazine. Yes I know what you are thinking. Move.
Since I don't care for politic, let's just leave it at that.

I've always wondered what the "bullet button" was. Never really cared to look into it, since I don't have to deal with it. And don't the rifles have to be completely disassembled before they can be shipped to CA?

It is not hard to find bullet button kit for pretty much any kink of AR style rifle. Most if not all are easily install and completely reversable. No, the rifle doesn't need to be disassembled to ship to CA.

It does need to be California compliant though before the seller can ship it to California. If it comes with 30 round mags, the seller will either replace it with a 10/30 mag or just not ship the mag with the rifle at all. Bullet button will need to be installed before shipment by the seller as well.
