For those in California, Carlsbad’s Cross Armory wants your AR-15 to disassemble like magic for quick fixed-mag exchanges, as shown in the above video.

Using their Quick Pins system, which replaces the rear takedown pin, Cross promises “the most convenient separation and locking of upper and lower receivers in the industry.”

Matched with Cross’s Safe Mag fixed magazine lock and release system, which automatically drops the magazine when the upper and lower receivers are separated, you get a system that enables the user to perform a pretty fast exchange of a fixed magazine while complying with new anti-bullet button laws that require a firearm to be disassembled to perform a mag change.

The mechanics behind the magic are highlighted in the below animation.

The cost? $129 for Quick Pins and $69 for Safe Mag.

Below is a video of a user who seems impressed.

Last year, state lawmakers passed AB 1135 and SB880 changing the definition of a “fixed magazine” under California law to mean “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.” With Gov. Brown’s signature on these bills, the legacy bullet button is a curiosity of the past.

However, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra’s office has pulled its proposed rules on just what constitutes an assault weapon under state law where bullet buttons– and devices like Cross Armory’s Quick Pins– are concerned.
