Quick question.

When did the law go into effect not allowing any private party transfers without going through a dealer? I belive it was 1994.

Thanks

This should answer your question.
Until 1991 you could buy rifles without DROS etc. in CA.
And until then you could buy directly from private parties without paperwork or FFL intervention.

You just went into a shop, filled out the 4473 and paid your bill.
