    For us in the PRK who want an AK, turners.com is selling them....

    Ok, so it's in .22LR, but still it *looks* like an AK after all. :D

    Took me a bit to figure out how they are getting away with it.

    12276.5. (a) Upon request by the Attorney General filed in a verified petition in a superior court of a county with a population of more than 1,000,000, the superior court shall issue a declaration of temporary suspension of the manufacture, sale, distribution, transportation, or importation into the state, or the giving or lending of a firearm alleged to be an assault weapon within the meaning of Section 12276 because the firearm is either of the following:

    (1) Another model by the same manufacturer or a copy by another manufacturer of an assault weapon listed in subdivision (a), (b), or (c) of Section 12276 which is identical to one of the assault weapons listed in those subdivisions except for slight modifications or enhancements including, but not limited to, a folding or retractable stock; adjustable sight; case deflector for left-handed shooters; shorter barrel; wooden, plastic or metal stock; larger magazine size; different caliber provided that the caliber exceeds .22 rimfire; or bayonet mount. The court shall strictly construe this paragraph so that a firearm which is merely similar in appearance but not a prototype or copy cannot be found to be within the meaning of this paragraph.

    I've seen some pump action AK's that are Ca. legal. I've never had an interest in checking them out as that type of insanity hasn't filtered down here yet, but they are out there.

    Yeah, the PAR-1. I saw one in the rack a few months back and nearly fell over in laughter.

    The thing that struck me when I first saw it was that it was how it showed the futility of banning features on a weapon. The gun grabbers figured that they could get rid of the eeeevil AK by banning the semi auto feature (among others). No semi then no AK. Some bright boy came along, thought about it for a while, figured out a way to make the action pump instead of semi, and essentially told Ca. to go do a copulatory act with themselves.

    No matter what you try to ban, someone will figure out a way around it if they want to. You can't legislate away advances in technology (thinking more along the lines of radar detectors than pump actions).

    I think I'll take a look at it just for giggles. My GF has a 10/22 and I need an inexpensive 22 plinker rifle for myself.

    :evil:

    Stick with the 10/22. Your GF has better senses than you.

    The only giggling you'll hear is from other people at the range when you show up with this.

    The PAR-1 is the same as a semi. :evil: Just a different action system. The Armscor is a different animal. To clarify.;)
