          (B) A second handgrip.
(C) A shroud that is attached to, or partially or completely encircles, the barrel that allows the bearer to fire the weapon without burning the bearer’s hand, except a slide that encloses the barrel.
(D) The capacity to accept a detachable magazine at some location outside of the pistol grip.

(5) A semiautomatic pistol with a fixed magazine that has the capacity to accept more than 10 rounds.

(b) For purposes of this section, “fixed magazine” means an ammunition feeding device contained in, or permanently attached to, a firearm in such a manner that the device cannot be removed without disassembly of the firearm action.

(c) The Legislature finds a significant public purpose in exempting from the definition of “assault weapon” pistols that are designed expressly for use in Olympic target shooting events. Therefore, those pistols that are sanctioned by the International Olympic Committee and by USA Shooting, the national governing body for international shooting competition in the United States, and that were used for Olympic target shooting purposes as of January 1, 2001, and that would otherwise fall within the definition of “assault weapon” pursuant to this section are exempt, as provided in subdivision (d).

(d) “Assault weapon” does not include either of the following:

(1) Any antique firearm.

(2) Any of the following pistols, because they are consistent with the significant public purpose expressed in subdivision (c):

 

When using the MMG on your "Off List" Rifle, do not have any banned features (a - f) on your rifle.  Keep your rifle 30 inches or longer and have a minimum barrel length of 16 inches.

The MMG will not take a unregistered Category 1 & 2 "listed" firearm out of assault weapon status.  If it is listed, nothing you can do can make it CA legal again.

In California, this is what the law say's as to what qualifies as a "Pistol Grip" on a rifle. 

"A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon."

Definition-
(d) “pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action of the weapon” means a grip that allows for a pistol style grasp in which the web of the trigger hand (between the thumb and index finger) can be placed below the top exposed portion of the trigger while firing.

The following definitions apply to terms used in the identification of assault weapons pursuant to Penal Code section 12276.1:

ATTENTION OTHER STATES:

The MMG grip may help you with your local laws as well.  I am not familiar with all the other state laws for me to be able to 100% recommend my grip to you.  Please look into your local laws and go with what you feel is legally safe to do.
