Your nephew is not considered "immediate family" under CA firearm laws [PC 16720].
Therefore, his grandparent or parent needs to be the person that gifts him the shotgun.

So, your sister (his mom) buys the shotgun and does the 4473/DROS + 10 day wait. After which she can give the shotgun to her son (your nephew), no paperwork required. [PC 27870] If she gives the shotgun to him after 01-01-2014, then he will need to be 18 or older and he will need to register it. [PC 27875]

If you buy the shotgun, then you will have to wait until he turns 18 and transfer it to him through a CA FFL dealer.
