    Rifle Dynamics has announced about the addition of California compliant AKs to the list of their main products. The company has built multiple custom California compliant AKs before, but now they have these rifle as main production models. Rifle Dynamics calls this project Operation California Air Lift. Let’s watch the video where Jim Fuller, the founder of Rifle Dynamics, tells about these new rifles.

The model designations of these rifles are AKM-CA, RD-702-CA, and RD-502-CA which represent the “featureless” versions of company’s AKM, RD-702, and RD-502 rifles respectively. Let’s take a brief look at each of these rifles.
