Default Exception to 50 yr old C&R requirement?

This may have been covered before. If so, I apologize...

I had an experience a few years back where I sold another Calgunner a Yugo
SKS. It was 100% stock. We met at a large chain retail gun store to do the DROS. The guy behind the counter said it didn't need to be DROSed, and showed me the PDF avaialbe at the ATF website (see

On page 33, the very last item listed is "Yugoslavian manufactured rifles, M59 and M59/66 7.62 X 39mm caliber, all semiautomatic variations and having a fixed magazine, manufactured from 1947-1992."

We ended up DROSing the rifle anyway, but I always wondered if the guy behind the counter was correct.

So my question is, is CA definition of a C&R different than the Federal definition of a C&R firearm? I know there are other stipulations that would exclude the firearm from being legal in CA, say for example an AK47 manufactured in 1955 because it is classified as an assault rifle. I ask because I am looking for another SKS, an FN49 or a Hakim. All of these items appear on the BATFE C&R list. Does anyone know for sure, or are these DROSed to CYA?
