Century won't sell the semi-auto version of the M53 in California (and several other states). WLA follows their guidance with sales on the semi-auto M53 receivers.
If you try and remove the flashider (just unscrew it) the firearm(M53) won't function.
MarColMar and WLA are looking into a "California" model of the semi-auto PKM.

Though neither the MG-34 nor MG-42 are specifically mentioned in section 12276, they probably fall under section 12276.1.... has anyone thought of making a "sporter" type buttstock/grip assembly for the 34/42/53? Something like a thumbhole stock, it would eliminate the "pistol grip", yet still provide for a buttstock and grip.
They may be available, overseas.... If you make a grip with no handle / pistol grip it eliminates that problem
I was working on spade grips with a gripless fcg box but there wasn't enough interest in it for me to spend the time and $$$ to finish developing it.
