no, the best you can do if you want to enjoy the pistol on the other side the nevada curtain is to replace the bbl. the other option is to keep the factory bbl on and weld a device on the threads, a flash hider, thread protector, comp, etc. but that would make cleaning a PITA.So if I have lived in CA for several years but failed to register it when first moved here I cannot register the gun now? I have it stored in Las Vegas but it has a non threaded barrel. Is it possible for me to register the gun now? If I can show them proof that I purchased it out of state before I moved to CA?
Unfortunately, those sources aren't always the best alternatives either. Try calling NYPD's Licensing division and get a straight answer on some licensing rules and I pretty much guarantee you will be transferred about 6-7 times and still not get a "correct" answer. I've been through this numerous times on several pistol purchases. I've been told flat out "NO" that I can't own or possess certain things, yet I put in a purchase order request and it is granted to me for that very item. Go figure.
Try calling the CA DOJ or LE about OLL AR's. Everyone who has been arrested by LE for one has had the charges dropped in court after you pay about $20,000 to your lawyer.
You mean like a local police officer? They are full of misinformation as well when it comes to stuff that is out of the ordinary for them. There are 3 cops at the gym I go to, all of them at least 15 year veterans. None of them knew it was legal for me to own an MP5. They all thought only FFLs could own auto weapons.
