Welcome to Calguns. IANAL but the word is that CA DOJ Bureau of Firearms would rather have the firearm registered than prosecute so no harm should come from a late registration. Here is the Q&A from the DOJ site:

I am moving into California and I own several handguns. What are the new-resident registration requirements?

You are considered to be a personal handgun importer as defined by California law. You may bring all of your otherwise California-legal firearms with you, but you must report all of your handguns to the DOJ within 60 days as required utilizing the New Resident Handgun Ownership Report. PDF logo [PDF 518 kb / 2 pg] You are not required to report rifles or shotguns. You may not bring ammunition feeding devices with a capacity greater than ten rounds, machineguns, or assault weapons into California.

(PC sections 12001(n), 12072(f)(2))


Here is a link to the whole Q&A, the moving into CA question is #25. http://ag.ca.gov/firearms/pubfaqs.php#24

cool! thanks. my friend said that i can sell it to someone thru an ffl rather than register. he says it will be registered to the new owner(which will be him). is this correct?
