View Full Version : Intra-familial transfer question

04-16-2008, 10:59 PM
Because my father can no longer handle a pistol, he has decided to transfer his collection to me. In the process of doing the intra-familial transfers, I came across two black powder pistols. Both pistols are replicas of 1850s/1860s era cap and ball. One is .44 cal and the other is .36 cal. I know that these are not c&r eligible because my father purchased them new 8 to 10 years ago.

First question I have is, are black powder pistols registered at purchase and do I need to list them on the intra-familial transfer?

Second, will I be red flagged (for investigation or whatever) for transferring all of the pistols at one time. I do not like to make public the extent or lack thereof of my collection, so lets just say that I am looking to transfer more than six.

Don't worry about 'em.

BP guns are paper-free cash & carry.

They aren't even considered firearms. Modern replicas of blackpowder handguns are considered "antiques" as long as they don't fire conventional fixed ammunition.
