For California C&R FFLs...
You will need to get a COE now if you want C&R long guns delivered to your door.

You will need a COE if you want to acquire C&R long guns from other Californians without going through a dealer.

You will have to register each C&R long gun that you acquire after December 31, 2013 by sending in a form to CalDOJ along with a fee.

You still don't need a COE if you want to acquire C&R firearms while you are outside of California. But you will have to register any C&R long guns you acquire while out of state the same way you do with C&R handguns now.

You will no longer be restricted to 50+ year old C&R long guns being shipped to you or being acquiring inside California from non-dealers. You will be able to acquire C&R long guns of any age without going through a dealer.
For non-C&R FFLs...
You will no longer be able to acquire 50+ year old C&R long guns without going through a California licensed dealer.

Basically, the way it is now, in order to avoid California's requirement of going through a California licensed dealer, a transaction that takes place in California has to meet three requirements...
1. The firearm must be a long gun.
2. The firearm must be considered C&R by the Feds.
3. The firearm must be at least 50 years old.
The way it will be after December 31, 2013 is the "50 years old" requirement will be replaced by the "buyer must be a C&R FFL with a COE" requirement and then they added the registration requirement...
1. The firearm must be a long gun.
2. The firearm must be considered C&R by the Feds.
3. The buyer must have a C&R FFL and a COE.
4. The buyer must send in a form and payment to register the long gun.
