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.
