Cordelia Gun Exchange converts the FN SCAR 20S FDE 308 for California compliance by adjusting the stock's length of draw, removing the flash hider and adding a thread protector, and replacing the pistol grip with a Strike Megafin or Strike Simple grip. The result is a cordless, semi-automatic shotgun that can be bought in the state for sale or ownership.
The SCAR 20S is not considered a short barreled shotgun under California law. It is also not considered a rifle because it uses only one fixed barrel design. The shooter controls the range of fire and elevation of the gun by rotating the forend. This action operates a vertical pin inside the barrel chamber that determines how far the gunner can extend the barrel tube. At its longest point, the barrel is 18 inches; at its shortest, it is 3 3/4 inches. Because the gun has no moving parts other than the occasional need to clean them, it is very reliable.
The SCAR was designed as a family hunting weapon for use both on and off road. Its light weight and small size make it easy to carry into remote areas. With sights that are adjustable for range and condition, this gun offers shooters of all levels a durable, accurate choice for home protection and recreational use.

Is it legal for me to own a SCAR 17? – According to Quora. Both yes and no. If a gun store doesn't already have one in stock, a civilian semi-automatic variant (SCAR 17S) is available and may be picked up in most states through an FFL (Federal Firearms Licensee) transfer. The SCAR is not considered a military weapon so it does not fall under the National Rifle Association's (NRA's) ban on "assault weapons."
However, you must be 18 years old to purchase a SCAR from a dealer, so if you are not yet 18 you cannot buy one. You also need to pass a background check before you can take possession of your new firearm. If you are unable to pass the background check, then the sale cannot go through.
The dealer will be required by law to hold the rifle for you while you attempt to get permission from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF). If at any time during this process you decide that you want to cancel the sale, then you must return the gun to the dealer within five business days. In addition, there is a fee for each attempt made by the dealer to contact you by phone or email about your application. This process can take several weeks depending on how quickly you respond to them. When you do finally receive approval from the ATF, you will need to pay a tax on the gun and wait another 10 days before you can pick up your new firearm.

Derringers were once popular among cowboys for their usefulness as a tool for self-defense and for hunting small game. Today, they are more commonly used by jewelers and dentists as tools for dispensing jewelry and teeth, respectively. A derringer is a small handgun designed to be easy to carry and use in close-quarter situations. The term "derringer" comes from the late 18th century English word "derry," which means "to roll" or "to shoot." Thus, a derringer rolls up ammunition for you so you don't have to bother with a magazine or belt loop.
In California, it's illegal for any person other than an authorized dealer to sell, deliver, transport, provide, or place possession of pistols within the state. Only certain licensed individuals are allowed to own derringers: law enforcement officers, correctional officials, and employees of stock companies. It is also an offense under California law to import or export a pistol without first obtaining a license from the Department of Justice.
