Kali Legal Remington R15's

27 posts in this topic

I wrote to a Post by Byron South on another forum when the Rem R15 came out, and Asked if there would be a Kali Model available. He said he knew of no such Plans.. I saw a 15, and a 25 at the Placerville Gunshow. They had Bullet Button Mags, thereby skirting the Removable Mag situation. The Price on the R 15 was $ 1400.00 dollars, so for the AR Guys, they are available. Just wanted to pass along the Info !

Hey Ornery, I've been patiently waiting for mine to get out of jail. I had to wait for it to arrive from Ten Percent Firearms in Taft before my FFL in El Cajon, would allow me to start filling out the paperwork. It arrived Thursday so she will be out of jail on Monday the 29th. :rolleyes::signs1242cn:

Yes you can own one. The dealership or FFL you buyfrom here in Cali HAS to buy it from an out of state dealer. That out of state dealer must install a Bullet Button before shipping to California. The Bullet button makes the R-15 a Non-Assault weapon. Any R-15's you see in a gun shop here in california WILL have a Bullet Button or possibly a Prince50.

Got mine out of jail last night! Just posted it in the AR15 section. I'll take pictures after work today! Oh, it comes with the bullet button but you can opt for the prince 50 also. I took the safer route with the BB-I think!

I held your rifle at 10percent, that thing is NICE!! I'm jealous.I agree with the BB over Prince50. Seems MORE LEGAL if that makes any sense.

This dealer will install a BB on a rifle and ship to your FFL. I actually ordered my R25 from a dealer in Nebraska and had it shipped to Adam. Adam installed the BB, (for a VERY reasonable price,) and shipped to my local FFL. All of this was done within the law.

These are beautiful looking guns. I wonder what twist rate is available? The Remington site doesn't say as far as I could see.I heard they bought out bushmaster, but I've only heard it as hearsay. Remington does a great job putting camo on their guns. My shotgun in Break-up is very nice. I'd love to have one of these. They look to be about 1200 bucks.

Sertshark, Remington and Bushmaster are owned by the same company (Serbius I think). Remington didn't buy them out. The R-15 that I have has a 1:9 twist rate like most AR-15's unless they changed something recently. Ten Percent Firearms in Bakersfield sells them for $1400. Some say that's too much but if you want a complete gun with the Bullet Button installed and an extra 10 round mag you'll find a way to buy it like I did. I'm in the process of buying my friends' R-25 in .308 cal. who is in Arizona. My FFL is going to install the Bullet button as soon as it arrives to make it "legal". My friend doesn't like the colors or the weight of the R-25. His loss, my gain!

You might want to check out installing the bullet button in California. The R-15 you bought from Ten Percent Firearms had the BB installed in Wyoming before it could be legally shipped to California as a complete rifle, even to a FFL. BTW, add DPMS to the list of companies now owned by the same company that owns Remingtion and Bushmaster.Woo

...and Remington owns Marlin...and Marlin owns "New England Firearms" and "Harrington and Richardson".

Ten Percent is in Taft. :)An Woo is right about shipping a complete rifle (AR Type) into Cali. It NEEDS the BB installed before it is sent to Cali.

I understand that the R-15 is made by Bushmaster and the R-25 is made by DPMS.

Woo and WKC, you guys are right again! I haven't spoken to my FFL since Monday so I called him tonight and he says he already sent the BB with installation instructions to my friends' FFL. See, most of the FFL's know what to do! And Chris, Bakersfield is close enough to Taft for me! Aren't they within spittin' distance of each other? :)

No way man. Not even within shootin distance. Taft is NOT Bakersfield. Most people not from here or only know Bakersfield as that dusty town they drive through on the 99 (or Worse I5 which doesn't actually go through Bakersfield) think it's this tiny little place. It's actually quite large (I think it's the 11th largest city in Cali).I'm not bragging at all about Bakersfield and i would like to move, but I wouldn't move to Taft. :):):)

Hey guys, I just got myself a Remington R-15 and LOVE this gun. I put a Leupold Vari X III 3.5-9x40mm on it. I made it Cali legal with the button but haven't had a chance to take it in the field and see what kind of responses I get. What paperwork do you guys suggest I carry with me just in case the fish cops or LEO approach me? I've read somewhere in these posts that one guy was carrying the OLL and AW flow chart, does anyone know where I can get these documents?Thanks,Steve

Thank you very much for that, I already have it printed and will get it laminated very soon. Lets just hope that if an LEO is reading it he doesn't let his ego overrule printed rules and regs!!Thanks again,Steve

Ok so the first day at the range with the new R-15.......WOW.....what a great gun!! You guys are going to cringe when I tell you I was using WOLF ammo but it's what was available. I used a 55gr soft point and I sighted in at 50yds. I had very nice results holding a silver dollar size pattern with ten shots. Keep in mind that I was trying to sight in my scope as I was making these shots and it was gusting about 10kts. The rifle cycled rounds very smoothly but on occasion the rounds got stuck in the mag, thus not allowing the bolt to close.......I didn't like that very much, but I blame that on the WOLF!! The trigger is a bit stiff as others have mentioned but nothing you can't work with....I didn't think it was too stiff that it hindered the ability to make a clean shot. I think this is going to be a great predator gun and Remington (Bushmaster) really put together a great gun. The factory camo is sharp looking and surprisingly tough. There are a few small spots (under the charging handle) that rub a little and I am seeing slight wear, not enough to cause a fuss though. I can't wait to get a Yote in the cross hairs, and I will certainly let you guys know how that hunt goes!!Happy Hunting,Steve
