Lawful AR-15 ownership is at risk. The Kali Key is the fast, cost-effective solution: In minutes,
convert any mil-spec, gas operated (does not work with piston systems), AR-15 into a straight-pull bolt-action rifle. No removal of
the gas system, no milling, and no custom modifications are necessary. Simply replace the
factory gas key and charging handle on any mil-spec bolt carrier group with the Kali Key, and
your AR-15 will operate as a bolt-action rifle, no longer falling under the California definition of
an “assault weapon.” *
With the Kali Key you can do all this without requiring registration of your rifle as an assault
weapon, and without spending twice as much to go featureless or risking dangerous jams by
locking in your magazine.* The GEN II Kali-Key is more innovative than the first generation. It offers the shooter more flexibility in charging speeds by eliminating stiffening of the charging handle under extreme circumstances (high speed operations).

Excellent conversion for CA legal

Super quality. Unique design solves the whole "assault rifle feature issue" but … the wings of the charging handle causes issue if you want to have off side sites of any sorts because of its very large size. i.e. if you have a scope mounted and want iron sights sitting off at a 45 you cant fit even the smallest 45 degree offset. there is no room. But I love the product because I can put back all the other "features" since it turns an AR into a bolt rifle.

Got mine last week. The screws included were the wrong size.
The unit I received looks nothing like the unit pictured.
What I received is 2 pieces, a separate gas block key and charging handle. The handle is really loose and is marring my upper when I charge it. May see if I can have it welded next week.
Still haven't received the proper screws that were promised to be shipped to me. Overall very disappointing..

Thank you. I live in communist New York and this is a great solution to our oppressive gun laws that plague law abiding citizens.

Well, let me start with i put two of these together in five min. Then installed on my very nice AR-15's!! off to the range. OMG it's a hole new kind of Bolt Action Rifle!!!! Very smooth, cycles very nice, fifty rounds-no jams. I think it helps with long range shooting for the fact that there is less Recoil . Get one, go shooting, have fun.

Well made, works as advertised. No complaints. Except I have to live in California!

This is a very cool item though I think the marketing videos tend to over sell it a little - you are not going to run an AR 'super fast' with this device and depending on the upper you are using, it can be a little clumsy until you learn how to work your hand around the forward assist and/or the knobs on your carry handle (if you have one attached). Overall I think this an excellent idea for states that have stupid laws and it represents a solidly erected middle finger at them. I live in a free state but wanted to buy this item to support the innovative thinkers at JL Billet.

We have been stewing over Gunmageddon's effect on my legal status and my AR-15. I tried the "drop in magazine" fix from another supplier. and broke my rifle. After repairing it, I just locked them away. THen JL Billet comes to the rescue. The Kali-Key was so easy to install. Open the rear take-down pin, pull out the bolt, grab an allen wrench and swap the gas key with the Kali-Key and push the bolt back in. 2 Minutes TOPs. I keep a little blue loctite around just or this. Proper torque and I am shooting again in less than 5 minutes.
And of course when I am in TEXAS (Land of the Free) I can quickly use a different bolt configuration can't I?
FYI - JL Billet always goes the extra mile on the parts they build. I have a few and am always surprised how clever these guys are. On the AR Platform, they have greatly improved the performance and simplified the maintenance of both Uppers and Lowers. Why didn't the US think of that before?
