I registered my two rifles under the assault weapon laws back when they were enacted. I received my paperwork but have since misplaced it. Does anyone know where I can call or wrote to get replacement copies?

If you simply write the CA DOJ Bureau of Firearm, they can provide you new copies of your old registrations. In this case it's probably worth calling first to find out what they want you to send to get those new copies.

Talk to DOJ BoF Permits unit... they'll be friendly & courteous, they're nonpolitical at that level.

Years ago, I was just able to request a copy by phone.
These days, they may require a signed/notarized request from you.

It can help if you remember your AW reg#, I wrote mine on the back of my DL.

In the future: keep a 'good' or issued copy in your safe and/or safety deposit box. Make a buncha copies (perhaps reduced size), and keep one in your glove box and in each relevant rifle case.

You can also request a record of all firearms registered with DOJ in your name, including AW.

Can I get a list of the firearms for which I am listed as the purchaser, transferee, or owner?
Yes. To obtain a list of firearms listed in your name, complete and submit an Automated Firearms System Records Request (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/forms/pdf/AFSPrivateCitizen.pdf)http://ag.ca.gov/images/pdficon.gif [PDF 21 kb / 1 pg] form to the Automated Firearms Unit, P.O. Box 820200, Sacramento, CA 94203-0200. The letter must be signed, notarized, and include a photocopy of your photo ID card (ie., driver's license or DMV ID).
