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).

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?

Turn your semi-auto AR rifle into a bolt action rifle. A change which can be reversed just as easily as it was made. The Kali-Key is just the ticket. Designed to be an easy change, it is made of solid material and well designed. No need to change the gas tube which is a bonus if ever changed back; gases are redirected out the ejection port, reducing fouling.
Packaging is commercial blister pack and totally protects the product. It includes instructions which are easy to follow. As a Californian, I highly recommend this product.

Still looks the same but straight pull back to make non assault classification. Now can take out hunting just a volt action with the part. Easily installed. Recommend a second complete bolt for your ar15 in case you want to change back to semi auto. Great price!

Sorry folks, but this was purchased not to comply with Commifornia regulations but to alter my Ar15 hunting rifles into gas-less single shots for better long range accuracy.
