Antique M39 in California ???

Postby iridium-192 » Sat Nov 23, 2013 7:54 pm

Hey guys...
Is it legal to purchase Antique M39 "finn" on gunbroker.com (No FFL) & ship it in to California?
I've found one listed & would love to buy it but not sure about CA laws regarding it...
14 hours left....... I need an answer....

Here is what I've found...
ANTIQUES AND REPLICAS
Antique firearm means any firearm not designed or redesigned for using rimfire or centerfire ammunition and manufactured in or before 1898 (including any matchlock, flintlock, percussion cap or similar type of ignition system or replica thereof, whether actually manufactured before 1898) and also any firearm manufactured in or before 1898 using fixed ammunition which is no longer manufactured in the U.S. and is not readily available in the ordinary channels of commercial trade.

So it can should be made before 1898 & not use centerfire ammunition or use centerfire ammunition which is not readily available for purchase...

I guess that 7.62x54r is commonly available & manufactured in U.S. which makes this rifle NOT Antique according to CA law...

no it is not an antique. if you had a C&R03FFL it could be shipped to you. you can have it shipped to an FFL or if living in same state he could ship to you by UPS OR FEDEX.if you are 21 and us citizen why not get a C&R 03 FFL ?

Thank you, that's what I thought...
You're right, now is a time to obtain C&R license...

Yes it is. That will save you some money and time in the long run with transfers and whatever else it is you have to deal with in Kalifornia.
