Hello all and Happy Holidays. Just an FYI for those in SoCal looking to get in a last minute SSE purchase, Orange County Firearms is doing their level best and processing DROS on SSE's until 12/31 with pickup in Jan. (no affiliation here just passing on info).

I purchased a nice Walther PPQ M1 9mm from them today, went down this morning and did the DROS, there were a lot of very friendly staff and they really seemed to have their act together. First time I've dealt with them and I was very impressed- especially with their level of knowledge and process for the SSE. They are definitely busy though- at 10am there was a line out the door.

A real shame we have to deal with these insane petty restrictions on our 2nd amendment rights.

I really want one of those M&P pros....last minute idea...Is this possible;

my buddy in Co buys one, his FFL converts to SSE, sends to an FFL here.(but here is the kicker) I would have to take possession after 1/1/15 with my 10 day wait...or since its used it doesn't matter?

Depends on the FFL...I know of 1 in my area that is doing DROS for SSE's up to 12/31 @ closing...but warning people it's at their own risk and any DOJ delays or rejected paperwork will result in weapon not being transferrable to them.

Seems too risky to me (and I've never had any delays or other issues getting through my 10 day wait), so I'm done for 2014 after the VP9 I just picked up last Thursday.

Also, if your buddy's FFL isn't already an SSE shop they'll need to buy a longer barrel and weld the extension on, then you'd need to convert it back yourself (presumably using the stock barrel shipped with the gun by the FFL) after taking possession.

you might have a dealer that is willing to SSE for you, but has no available kits. provide your own barrel and you could still get DROSed by the 31st.

OIC...on the premise that SSE deadline in based on DROS start date and not pick-up date...

I'm sure there are plenty of posts/threads about it - but... I wouldn't take the chance of documented acceptance of off roster pistol being converted after effective date...

This is not meant to open a can-o-worms... Just one guys comfort zone.

Regardless of deadline interpretation - it seems way late in the game to make a sse barrel sale... Again, just one guys perception ~

Just an FYI (no affiliation) Alquist Arms in Turlock is DROSing SSE until the 31st. I just picked up a HK VP9 today for $620. They had about 25 left.

For those who don't know Alquist is a great shop with awesome prices. They don't even charge a SSE fee. However, they can get extremely busy so be patient. Merry Christmas Calgunners.

I want to thank those of you who've I done business with and purchased numerous pistols via SSE this year. I done business with several SSE LGS and I've had nothing but an excellent experience. All have been professional, timely and good to work with. To all of you, have a safe New Year and thank you for all of your hard work. This year has placed demands on the small business owner and they've gone above and beyond to meet their sales demand.....to ERB Works and 2A Zone, I thank you and God Bless

Again, thanks for all the shops that provided this invaluable service. Now, I hope someone (more talented than I) replaces this great thread with a similar one detailing "Shops that do SAE conversions"

It has been quite a positive experience and it was our pleasure to help many Calguns members with their SSE needs.

SAE is something we will be offering and not just with revolvers...
More info to come soon after SHOT Show in a couple of weeks.

Happy New Year,
AT

I also want to thank all of the FFL's who helped many get what they wanted despite overzealous and unconstitutional laws.

Thread un-stuck.

Until the next work-around ...

Default Transfer to CA

I work for Osprey Armament,an ITARS/FFL compliant company in Wilmington, NC. We got a lot of interest in our company at SHOT Show from individuals who live in California. I have a potential customer who lives in California and would like to purchase our MK-18 Pistol ( http://www.ospreyarmament.com/store/...l#.VNjrpp3F98E ). We are looking at our options at completing this sale, but doing it in a "California Legal" way. Because the law is very different from our laws in North Carolina, a lot of this is confusing. We would very much like input from people who have knowledge in doing this type of work. Please reply to this or email me. Thanks in advance for any help. We greatly appreciate it.

You're out of luck unless you can get the pistol onto the California roster.

The short answer is you're most likely out of luck unless the roster law changes. There is a case challenging the roster but no one knows how long it will take to finalize.

If your customer is someone interested in one or a few, your options are very limited/impractical to the point of forgetting about it. As stated, for you as an FFL to sell to a CA civilian resident, it has to be on the roster or meet one of the roster exemption criterias (unlikely).

If your customer is someone interested in a large order(s), I'd suggest speaking with an experienced CA gun law attorney. Calguns has some recommendations.

Good luck if you pursue this. The more pressure on this issue the better.

One option we had looked at was to sell everything but the stripped lower. Is that even a viable option?

You can build the pistol from a virgin reciever and ship it as a break top or bolt action single shot pistol.

Or you can ship all the parts and have the customer procure the lower.

The customer is able to procure an 80% lower or even a 0%, but will we be able to provide the parts for the lower or would the customer need to get the lower parts as well? I appreciate all the help, this has been very informative so far.

the only thing that CA really regulates in this case is the lower. if the customer procures his own pistol lower, the rest is just parts. you may sell lower parts kits and complete uppers without any regulation. just be aware that SBR constructive possession laws do apply federally and in CA, so he should have a pistol lower before he has a <16" upper in his possession, unless he owns no AR rifles that that upper could be used on.
