That sounds like a problem.
is exempt from using an FFL on an interstate transfer. If your grandfather came to CA and handed you the revolver, he clearly was still around (and long may he be so!) and 'inheritance' does not apply.
Should have both gone to a CA FFL and done the interstate transfer there. But shipment from WI to a CA FFL (who understood what was happening and was expecting the gun) would also have worked.
