I don't know what the other guys are saying or accusing you of

As long as the magazine is limited to 10 rounds and is Semi-automatic ONLY, it's California legal.

Good picks Chris

hmm
is it as retarded as the description makes it seem? ... fixed magazine ... might as well get a bolt action rifle or a front loading musket at that point

or did you get the other type, without the pistol grip?

# Fixed Magazine Rifle: This style of rifle is made by combining an AR-15 upper receiver with an AR-15 lower receiver which has not been specifically banned by name, and which has a fixed 10-round (maximum) magazine. In such a configuration, the rifleman could add otherwise prohibited features such as a telescoping stock and pistol grip. The magazine is not detachable, so to load the rifle the shooter must either "top load" or use a magazine lock. To top-load, the shooter pulls the rear takedown pin, hinges the upper receiver on the front pivot pin, and loads the now exposed magazine. Several devices are available on the market which replace the magazine release button with an inset pin that requires the use of a special tool to activate the magazine release.
# Featureless Rifle: If a rifle has none of the prohibited features (pistol grip, telescoping or folding stock, flash hider, grenade/flare launcher, forward pistol grip), the rifle may be used with legally-owned large capacity magazines. There are several products available on the market to configure featureless rifles. Special grips are available which prevent the thumb from going behind it as would be the case with a pistol grip configuration. They are therefore not a prohibited wrap-around style grip. Separate buffer tubes to contain the recoil spring and buffer assembly may also be used in conjunction with special stocks without prohibited grips or stock adapters which attach to the pistol grip mount.

you're in CA
i don't think you're old enough to have owned a semi-auto assault rifle before the ban to be grandfathered in...
so ... i'm guessing it's either an illegal firearm or a toy

Most likely fully legal. I have two. Fully legal.

Fun stuff.

Correct, don't forget about the bullet button.

The only restrictions is that there must be a bullet button installed so you cannot drop the magazine with your finger, magazines purchased since 2000 are limited to 10 rounds, semi automatic (most ARs are anyways) and must have an overall length of at least 30" in believe.

It's really not as bad as you'd think it is, just more annoying than anything.

Not sure what I'll use them for just yet but they are cool in my book.

You don't have to use a 10 round stubby mag, just have the capacity at 10. I use both PMag 10/20 and 10/30s. It is also legal in CA to buy REBUILD kits (aka disassembled high capacity 30 rounders). I can use these when I step across into a Free State.
