Nomad, do you have any info on who can perform these modifications? I am going to Arizona next month and talked to the Phoenix Cabela's yesterday. They have a full stock of ARs and can sell one to me, but it would be illegal for me to bring it back to California. If I can get the mods done in Arizona, I would purchase one in .243 in a piston-operated format (Sig just came out with one at an affordable #1,300 price tag), but I don't know if it comes in .243.

Changing the subject, gun suppliers in AZ will not sell firearms to Californians without either a driver's license or ID card, both supplied by the AZ DMV. The DMV needs (1) a social security card, (2) an AZ address (I own rentals there, so no problem), and (3) a photo ID (California driver's licenses or a passport photo is okay). The DMV said there is no requirement for the ID applicant to provide proof of residence, such as bringing in paid electric bills, etc.

An Arizona ID allows me to purchase a rifle there and likewise purchase a hunting license at the resident rate of $32/year (which is far less than the non-resident fee of $151) six months after the issuance of the ID card. After six months, I can purchase a hunting license at the resident rate. A three-day permit costs $62 for non-residents. This means I will bite the bullet for the coming year, then purchase a full year's license for $32 in 2011.
