New California Gun Laws took effect on January 1st. If you don’t take the necessary steps to get your rifle compliant, you must register it as an assault rifle. Most people don’t know the implications and ramifications this means. If you register your weapon as an assault rifle, you become much more limited on where you can take your rifle, and how you can use it. You also cannot sell or transfer it once it is registered as an assault rifle.

Step 1: GET COMPLIANT!!! Install an AR Maglock so that your rifle is compliant and you won’t be considered a felon, or risk getting your gun confiscated.

Step 2: GET FASTER!!! After you have made your rifle compliant, it’s time to get faster! Install the Patriot-Pin, and with some practice, you will get faster than ever before (even faster than bullet button).


Made from the highest grade components, the Patriot-Pin is built to last. The bracket and arm are made of CNC billet aluminum and are Type 3 hard anodized. The take-down pin is made of a special self lubricating co-polymer material to prevent wear on the lower receiver, as well as insuring smooth operation. Hundreds of hours of research and development have gone into making the Patriot-Pin, from every angle, edge, and surface and is proudly 100% made and engineered in the USA.

Although the Patriot-Pin is a stand alone product, and will work on most AR15’s, in any state, it particularly works well when combined with one of the existing magazine locking devices on the market. Because some state laws require the gun be “disassembled”, before the magazine can be loaded from the top or to remove the magazine, the Patriot-Pin makes it extremely fast and easy to do that. With your hand firmly on the pistol grip, simply extend your thumb to the end of the arm and “push” it in. You’ll feel the arm stop at just the right spot allowing you to then open your gun so that you have access to the magazine or the magazine lock “button”. The current takedown pins can be cumbersome and difficult to remove when holding the gun. The Patriot-Pin allows the user to keep their eyes on the target and at least one hand on the gun at all times. Don’t be distracted by anything else, stay focused on your target.


Step 1: To change the magazine, press the takedown arm with your thumb, which pulls the takedown pin out.


Step 2: After the takedown pin is pulled, hinge the upper forward just enough to be able to press the ARMagLock with your index finger, which will drop the magazine.


Step 3: As soon as the magazine is dropped, close the upper and push the takedown pin back in place.

Step 1: GET COMPLIANT!!! The new law states you must disassemble your rifle before you are able to release the magazine. By installing an ARMaglock, by definition, you are compliant under the new laws.

Step 2: GET FASTER!! After getting compliant, it’s time to get faster! With a combination of the ARMaglock, and the Patriot-Pin, you will be faster than ever, even faster than a bullet button!

If you do not get compliant under the new laws, you must register your rifle as an “Assault Rifle”. This basically renders your rifle useless to you, as it becomes very limited to where you can use your rifle. You can avoid registration by getting your rifle compliant under the new laws.

100% engineered and made in the USA! The bracket and arm are made from Hi-Grade CNC Billet Aluminum, and are Type 3 Hard Anodized. The takedown pin is made from a Copolymer material that is self-lubricating, that will not wear out your lower receiver.

The Patriot Pin is compliant with the Mil-Spec AR-15 platform. While it may work on other custom, or CNC lowers, it has not been tested on them yet. Many have asked if it will work on Left Handed platforms, or the AR-10 platform, while this one won’t work on those, we are just getting started!

The Patriot-Pin is very easy to install, and requires no permanent modifications to your rifle. At any time if the law changes, or you go out of state, the Patriot-Pin is easily removable to be able to go back to stock.

Laws and Disclaimers

The California Legislature recently passed a law mandating registration of all assault weapons. SB 880 will require that all assault weapons owners register their firearms with the CA DOJ, to include AR-15 firearms with magazine locking devices requiring a tool or bullet to remove the magazine. The registration shall contain a description of the firearm that identifies it uniquely, including all identification marks, the full name, address, date of birth, and thumbprint of the owner, and any other information that the department may deem appropriate.

SB 880 amends the definition of an assault weapon to refer to a rifle that has one of several specified military-style features and “does not have a fixed magazine,” rather than a gun with one of those features and the “capacity to accept a detachable magazine. Continued legal possession requires that you REGISTER and pay a FEE (TAX) on ALL your semi-autos newly classified as “assault weapons.”

These new laws apply to rifles that do not have a fixed magazine. The laws define “fixed magazine” as 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. This wording essentially renders other magazine locking devices useless. AR-15 owners now have to disassemble their firearm action in order to release the magazine.

Just to be sure there is no confusion, the new law states (b) (1) Any person who, from January 1, 2001, to December 31, 2016, inclusive, lawfully possessed an assault weapon that does not have a fixed magazine, as defined in Section 30515, including those weapons with an ammunition feeding device that can be removed readily from the firearm with the use of a tool, shall register the firearm before January 1, 2018. See here for exact wording of the law: SB 880.

The ARMagLock turns your firearm into a “fixed magazine” firearm that cannot release the magazine unless you pull the takedown pin, and separate the upper and lower receivers, thus “disassembling” the firearm action. Once the receivers are minimally separated, the ARMagLock can be engaged to release the magazine.

The ARMaglock is the key component to making your AR-15 rifle compliant. The Patriot-Pin makes your already compliant rifle much faster to “disassemble” in order to remove and load magazines.
