Are the 1908 Colt Vest Pocket 25 caliber pistols legal in California? I believe they are C&R?!

I know the one you mean -- small internal hammer. Yes, they are C&R; and as C&R they are roster exempt.

Last production was 1948.

Yes. I used to own one and I bought it through a dealer here in California.

find one and have it shipped to your local FFL. If the out-of-state seller is a private party, make sure that your FFL will receive shipments from non-licensees. Not all will. If not, you need to find a different FFL who will, or else the seller willl need to use an FFL to ship it to your FFL.

If the firearm is being shipped from an FFL to your FFL, then that FFL will need to sign up for CA's CFLC program and get a confirmation that your FFL is allowed to receive firearms.

I believe they still require a DROS unless obtained before 1991 (is that the correct year ?)

Yes, they must DROS; and 01/01/91 was the start of all transfers through dealers with a DROS (with certain exceptions)
