I have a Sears Roebuck Ted Williams .22lr semi auto that was given to me when I was a kid but I think was never registered. Does this rifle need to be registered and if so how to go about?

Thank you all.

The ONLY Ca "registration" on long guns applies to 50BMG rifles and AWs. Your .22 is niether so, why bother? If you feel that you want to officially "register" it in Ca., you can fill out a voluntary registration form and send the state a few more of your hard earned dollars.

I would think the only reason why the state should have knowledge of your rifle is if it is stolen from you. In that event, which should never happen if you are a responsible owner, just give the police the serial number. Otherwise, it's not their business.

If it's over 50 years old, you don't even need to go through a FFL to sell it. In any case, you can sell it if you want to without any problems. Even the rifles/shotguns that you bough from a shop last month are not "registered" in this state!

Yes.

I'm not so sure about the "no issues" thing. Most people end up regretting the sale of firearms they've had since they were young. But, as far as legal issues go, there aren't any! Just think before you sell.
