A: California's attorney general has a list of guns that are allowed to be sold in California ( I don't know if that list is also for guns that are allowed to be brought in to California by someone moving here. To be safe, I would assume it is.

California has magazine restrictions as well. 10 bullet maximum whereas a normal magazine holds 15 bullets.
