It complies to CA AW laws? Off the top of my head, a detachable magazine of no more than 10 rounds, no flash suppressor, no pistol grip, etc. etc.

According to Ca DOJ an assault weapon is, among other things:

A semiautomatic, centerfire rifle that has the capacity to accept a detachable magazine and any one of the following:

A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon.
A thumbhole stock.
A folding or telescoping stock.
A grenade launcher or flare launcher.
A flash suppressor.
A forward pistol grip.

So, they get an M1A with a muzzle brake instead of a flash hider.

The 10 round limit is for fixed magazine rifles.

:uhoh:

Unless you have your own pre-ban magazines it is a felony to import or build standard capacity magazines in CA.

That wasn't the question. The question was what defines an "assault weapon". He didn't ask for every California magazine law.

Any rifle that has a fixed magazine with MORE than 10 rounds is an assault weapon. M1A's accept a detachable magazine so the 10 round limit has nothing to do with whether or not it's an assault weapon.

The 10 round limit applies to detachable magazines also. What I meant was, that the seller might put 'CA approved' in the auction listing because it includes only 10 round magazines and not 20 round or more magazines along with complying with all the other CA BS.

Nothing is approved by California. But it was built with the intent of meeting the requirements of the law and the DOJ regs as they currently stand (10rd mag, muzzle break in place of flash suppressor).
