SAKO TRG 42 is it legal in California?

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

Thanks for your input.

Isn't semiautomatic the term that makes this law inapplicable for a boltaction rifle like the trg?

It has a detachable magazine so I would guess it is not permitted in CA. Sorry.

If the law is quoted correctly, the "semi-auto rifle" is key.
A bolt action rifle is not stated, probably excluded from this statute.
Any bolt action, even the TRG.

Is this current CA law?
Poor bastards.

This is a current California law.
Must be semi-auto accept a detachable magazine and then meet one of the conditions.
Just for fun do a search for California 12276 and read that crap.
Part of that bill was 50 BMG ban. People really use those 35 pound monsters for hold ups. Yeah right.
The 50 BMG ban is ridiculous. It is the only caliber banned. The Chetac or other big boomers are not effected.

It is not a semi. Also, a compensator or muzzle brake would be legal if it was a semi........however, it would not be legal if it was a pre ban semi, but its not a semi...

So it seems a SSK is legal under this statute.

It has a 10 round non-detach mag and no pistol grip.
Sometimes you have to take what you can get.
