CA11 and CA12 – The Latest from Franklin Armory

    Oh boy! The fun they must have at Franklin Armory as they read Californian (and other states’) firearms legislation and invent new ideas and products.

    Recently they launched the “Title 1“, which technically was not a rifle, not a pistol and not a shotgun due to some clever sorcery. It is now time for Franklin to release two new AR pistols for the Golden State.

    For instance, the CA12 is the first California pistol ever to come approved with a forward vertical grip.

    I don’t know which legislation that comes into place for this rifle in this caliber, but perhaps the answer can be found in one of TFB’s previous articles?

    This round will be especially interesting to those of you living in states that have hunting of certain species restricted to straight-walled cartridges only.”
