I do not live in California but one of the places that I happened to find one says that it's "California Compliant". What exactly makes a glock 19 "California complaint besides the 10 round mags".

It was "drop" tested before the loaded chamber indicator and magazine disconnect BS rules took effect.



There is no difference in the gun itself.

I think they also have to have a specific set of model numbers that are officially CA approved but it's just a book keeping kind of a thing. Guns with those specific model numbers will show up on the CA attorney general approved list since they have been tested like the prior poster stated. Only guns on that list can be sold in CA. I believe you can bring in most pistols that are not on the list as long as there are no mags over 10 rounds... Besides the mag safety that should be it. I can't remember if an internal lock is mandatory. I'm sure someone else knows.

My primary concern is that the gun will have the internal lock and mag safety. So the California compliant glock would have the mag safety? The only answers that I could come up with while researching was what you guys were saying about prior guns being tested, therefore making them approved.

No, it will not have an internal lock and magazine safety. There is no rule here requiring a internal lock. Only guns added to the list after 2008 (I think, could be 2007, but for a G19 the point is mute) would have to have both those "features". Glocks are not required to have those features as they were added to the list before all that crap was enacted. Sights are not a defining feature for the list (standard, adjustable, night).



A Glock is a Glock is a Glock, even in Kali (I did not mention the magazines though, those have to be limited).
