Franklin Armory announced it received approval from the California Department of Justice for its new CA7 Pistol. The 7.5-inch barreled AR pistol features a mil-spec pistol forged lower receiver with FST 7-inch handguard.

The gun uses a pistol buffer tube with foam cheek pad and is optics ready. Featuring a standard charging handle, the CA7’s barrel boasts a 1-in-9-inch twist rate. Decked out in all black, the CA7 comes chambered in 5.56 NATO.

Franklin Armory says its committed to helping California gun owners purchase legal firearms and already touts a large selection of CA compliant models to include the DFM Drop-in Fixed Magazine, F-17 series in .17 WSM and CSW, among others.

“This is historic since the CA7 is the only AR pistol approved by the state of California that is not a single shot,” Franklin Armory President Jay Jacobson said in a press release.

The CA7 ships with a detachable 10/20 magazine and sports a price tag of $934.99.
