I feel ignorant for asking this, but I need some advice on shipping a rifle to an FFL in California.






Have a user asking to purchase a LaRue OBR I have listed in EE, who resides in California. Have no experience with shipping rifles to California, and am not sure what is required.







Is it the receiving dealers responsibility to install a Bullet Button, etc? Or do I need to do it prior to shipping? Obviously I can't include the 20rd mags, but I'm clueless past that.







Any advice appreciated. Google-fu has yielded some conflicting answers.

to make things go smoother install the bullet button yourself, some FFL's will others wont.

Install the bullet button yourself.

Disassemble the magazines into pieces. If the buyer doesn't mention any intent to reassemble into a magazine that holds more than ten rounds, then they're legit repair/replacement parts or ones they can use to modify into a ten round magazine and are good to go. If they do mention it (or any other cute things like "well the state would have to prove..." or "I'll say I found them..") or other retarded stuff indicating their intent to manufacture the magazine unlawfully, then keep the pieces.

Ship from you to their FFL. They need to check that their FFL will accept shipments from a private party, it's a business policy issue, not a law or anything like that. If you ship from your FFL then there's more paperwork involved.

Make sure the FFL will accept shipment from a private party.  Get your payment and ship the rifle to the FFL once you have verified their information on the ATF website.  Let the FFL and purchaser worry about complying with the law on their side.  It is none of your concern and you can't get in trouble for sending it to the FFL, even if it doesn't comply with Cacafornia law as configured.

Damn, seems like you reach the point of diminished returns shipping to CA real quick.

At least shipping a C&R rifle there is pretty straight forward. I think they still have to wait (10 days?) to pick up even a C&R. I guess they are afraid someone might run amuck with that GEW 98.

Sending that rifle to California is a waste!

Send it to Mexico first and it will get there easier since they DO check citizens but apparantly don't check illegals...

Why would anyone waste their time or money changing out the magazine release, just to send a rifle into communist territory?  If someone from "that side" wants your rifle, let them make sure their dealer will change it out, or however they want to work out.  You are under absolutely no obligation to do anything but make sure you send the rifle to an FFL.

You wouldn't waste any money by sending it to them as is.
