I inherited a Ruger MkII pistol from a deceased family member. How do I go about transfering the registration if the registered owner is deceased? Thank you.

How are you getting the firearm? That makes a difference. Depending on whether it was mentioned in the will, seems to depend on whether it can be shipped directly to you. If it has to be sent to a FFL, then it will have to be DROS'd , but it should be exempt from the list.

If you are getting it directly, you need to fill out a form from the CA DOJ and send it in with a check.

I think that this is the correct form:
