First step, check to see if it's on the approved list.

+1, then get him and you to the local FFL and do it!

No,

What you need to do is find out if the pistol is on the roster. If it is, all he has to do is send it to your local FFL. He can use his local FFL to send it or if your FFL will accept from a non FFL, he can send it direct.

The rules he needs to follow are Federal laws, once you have verified the gun is on the roster.

Ok, so...

1. MUST be a cali-approved rostered pistol..
2. Either HE or his FFL (depending on my local FFL's rules) can ship to my local FFL

3. Then its just as simple as DROSing it??

Yes. Keep in mind that your local FFL is free to charge whatever he wants for the service.

Exactly,

As stated your FFL is free to charge whatever they want, but the average seems to be around $65-$75, so don't get gouged. Some try to charge $100+.

Another little hurdle, if your FFL only allows transfer from an FFL, your friend's FFL must be set up with the CFLC program.

you may be quoting for a Private party transfer (PPT). An Out of State transfer usually costs more since they are not limited to the $35. $65-$75 seems to be the going rate (including DROS costs). If it is truly $35 then many people in your area will are very lucky!

I asked ammo bros in cerritos, they quoted me $75 when i asked about doing the same thing but with long guns (includes DROS)
