72. technically
the article is wrong- it is not an Assault weapon- it does not have a protruding handgrip or actually complies fully with CA assault weapon law- the toughest on the books. IT just goes to show you that the whole "Assault weapon" mantra is a big sham and that it is just an outright attempt to ban semi-autos by looking at what the majority of semi-auto guns had in common cosmetically and banning that. This allows them to say "you can own any semi-auto rifle you want that doesnt have these features- and the reality is that very few semi-auto's do not have these features- and usually those that dont have them get banned by name. its deceitful and plain wrong.
