Case does not match gun but does have backstraps.
Gun w 2 15rd mags $680
I have an extra standard barrel for another $100
So I made a deal to purchase the whole package from the seller Cmikul. I sent him the money and my FFL's info. He then tells me he can't sell it to me and it's illegal to do so because I am in California. I explained to him i am a LEO and we are allowed to purchase off roster guns and legally obtain hi cap mags. I have bought a few other off roster guns before that included hi cap mags. I also advised him to take out the threaded barrel from the gun / leave it in the box and drop in the standard barrel. I spoke to my FFL and he advised me this was ok. I can legally posses a threaded barrel as long as I don't install it in the gun. Am i missing something? Is it legal or illegal? I don't want to break any laws, but based upon my research I think I am right. below I have cited a link to cal guns and the California DOJ that supports my findings.
CA summary of threaded barrels and handguns:
Threaded barrel not installed (by itself) = legal

Threaded barrel installed on a single-shot pistol = legal
Threaded barrel installed on a semi-auto pistol with a fixed 10 round or less magazine = legal
