I am looking at some older S&W revolvers that are not on the list or a different dash "-" version is listed but the model I am looking at.
You can get an off roster gun in many ways. If it is a new gun from a dealer you can SSE it,or if a peace officer buy it as they are exempt from the roster.
If it is a consignment gun at a FFL dealer,or if you find someone that already has the gun in California,you can do a face to face PPT at a FFL.
