View Full Version : Thinking of buying a WWII 1911

I have been looking at buying a vintage 1911 for a long time. I have found several I like but was looking for some clarification on the importing of one into California. They obviously wouldn't be on the safe handgun list. The list does include a clause for C&R handguns. Are they using the federal governments definition of 50 years or older or is there a California definition for C&R? Thanks for the help in advance.
