California bans certain features on Semi-automatic Shotguns.


12276.1.  (a) Notwithstanding Section 12276, "assault weapon" shall
also mean any of the following:
   (6) A semiautomatic shotgun that has both of the following:
   (A) A folding or telescoping stock.
   (B) A pistol grip that protrudes conspicuously beneath the action
of the weapon, thumbhole stock, or vertical handgrip.

  (7) A semiautomatic shotgun that has the ability to accept a
detachable magazine.

  (8) Any shotgun with a revolving cylinder.

Note that you may have a folding stock as long as you do not also have a pistol grip or thumbhole stock and vise-versa.

Only both of these features combined trigger "assault weapon" status.

Provision (8) applies to all shotguns.

There are no 'assault weapon' implications of magazine capacity together with shotguns.
