MAK 90: CA legal for CA resale?

I am an 01 FFL but cannot find the proper info needed for a possible sale of a Pre CA Ban Mak 90. I registered as an "assault weapon", CA DOJ replied ir wasnt necessary, although they registered it all the same.

I am looking at selling it to a CA customer. The sale is on hold for legal confirmation.

The rifle, a pre CA ban MAK 90, has a pistolgrip, non folding Ramline stock & muzzle brake, fixed 10 round mag. Is this legal to sell in CA? Following the flow chart... It would appear that it is legal to sell in CA.

Looking for verification, opinions, legal info before I put my butt in the sling for a sale. Any help appreciated. I say yes, what say you?

Is it Norinco? You don't say, and it matters.

A Norinco MAK 90 is a 'named' 'assault weapon'. As such, it cannot be sold to regular folk in CA - theoretically, a LEO with a letter from his/her chief might be authorized to buy it for duty use, but that's unlikely for an AK-pattern gun. A dealer with an 'assault weapon' permit might buy it; again, then he faces the problem of what to do with it.

If it were NOT a 'named weapon', would probably be OK - fixed-mag 10-round can have 'features' like the folding stock. You would have to un-register it to sell it as an 'off list lower'.
