I believe that older Saigas are listed, but not EAA or the newest imports, as they must be according to the law. You can doublecheck at calguns, and here, but I believe that this is the consensus.

Keltec Su16 (a, and b and ca model)

I agree fixed-mag AR's are gay.. For now, the SKS fills my semi-auto needs. It's super cheap, reliable, fairly accurate, and can be loaded quickly with stipper clips. I'm gonna get a M1A one of these days. It's pricey, but it's the best thing we've got there. I think Mini-14's are overpriced and dont care to support Ruger anyway. I was considering a SU-16 for awhile, but I've heard they have a number of problems. If there's anything I hate, it's an unreliable firearm.

In Cali I would say the Keltec SU16 family is your best bet.

Has to be CA legal, and no ARs with fixed magazines (I don't understand the advantage of a fixed magazine for an autoloader)
Why not just build it without a pistol grip and flash suppressor, and then have your detachable magazine?
Short of that, here is a list of Cali legal autoloaders that I can think of. I am sure there are more and many of the ones below might not fit your criteria, but some you might want to look at.
Beretta RX4 (If it is made available to civilian sales)
Marlan Camp 9/45
PPSH-41(This one and the Suomi might not be long enough for California if you get the versions from Military Gun Supply)

Oh yeah, the HK SL6 or SL7, if you got the dough. Beautiful rifles.

An AR without a pistol grip is a neutered AR, IMO. I'd rather just have an M1A than to build an AR without a pistol grip. YMMV

Who makes the best (or one of the best) M1 carbines?
Looks like a nice handy medium range rifle?
Anyone offer it with synethic stock?
