I have even tried to ppt myself a lower to switch to pistol... no go... armorer wont touch it.. I am NOT a lawyer.. I dont give legal advice.
Best way is to complete an 80% lower yourself in your garage like I did. That's the way most people in CA are getting AR pistols to my knowledge. I don't think buying complete AR pistols is all that common because it won't be built your way.
