Can a Semi Automatic Thompson sub-machine Gun be legally purchased

Customer Question

Can a Semi Automatic Thompson sub-machine Gun be legally purchased in California?

It can be legally purchased, but the gun must comply with certain requirements to be legal in California. There are some manufacturers who have designed such a gun such that it is legal in California (most Thompson sub-machine guns are not legal in California).
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Won't a device that makes a magazine non detachable without the use of a tool do the job?
Expert:  Thelawman2 replied 1 year ago.
The gun has to be sold in a compliant manner, so you have to make sure that the gun is sold from a legal seller in a way that complies with California law.
