FIREARMS WITH THE KUNVIRT FIRE CONTROL GROUP ARE NOT ASSAULT WEAPONS
Firearms equipped with the Kunvirt Fire Control Group are not “assault weapons” under California law. This may result in local law enforcement mistakenly determining firearms equipped with the Kunvirt Fire Control Group are “semiautomatic” and therefore “assault weapons” under California law.
However, a firearm equipped with the Kunvirt Fire Control Group is not “semiautomatic” as that term is defined under DOJ regulations. After discharging a round, the Kunvirt Fire Control Group prevents the firearm from being subsequently discharged without first manually cycling the safety selector from the “fire” position, back to “safe,” and then back to “fire.” These steps must all be undertaken before the firearm can discharge another round.
The function of the Kunvirt Fire Control Group is accomplished by the unique design of the safety selector, trigger, and disconnector. By its nature, the Kunvirt Fire Control Group’s main components are hidden from plain view when properly installed.
Because a firearm equipped with the Kunvirt Fire Control Group cannot lawfully be classified as “semiautomatic” under California law, such firearms cannot be classified as “assault weapons” under Penal Code section 30510 or Penal Code section 30515.
