Default Transfer featurless AK rifle to friend in North San Diego county?

Hi all. A very close friend of mine wants to buy my AK. I am now a 4 year citizen of Arizona, and my buddy lives in North San Diego county.

I bought the AK new when I lived in San Diego and built it into a featureless rifle. It is not listed in section A, B, or C of the Calguns flowchart, and passed every step of the flowchart and concluded it as legal, not a California "assault weapon". I converted it to free state configuration when I got to AZ because screw CA.

I kept all the featureless parts, as a reminder not to ever move back lol. I have reconverted it back to California featureless in anticipation that my buddy will go through with the sale. I followed the current Calguns chart with no maglock and its still legal, not an Assault weapon.

Its a 16" barrel Vepr AK in 7.62x39 thats got a bullet guide and modified mag catch to accept standard AK mags. It has no magazine lock. The muzzle device is a Muzzle Brake, the grip is one of those cool Monsterman wood AK grips. The stock is a Magpul fixed carbine AR stock; the AK has an AR buffer tube adapter. Magpul AK handguard but NO vertical foregrip. And thats it.

So, is this rifle ok to import back to North San Diego county as a featurless? Should I throw a mag lock on it just on case? This is a private party to private party transaction.

Any recommendations for FFL transfer in North San Diego county? Duncans Gunworks is a HARD no go for me. I brought my newly built featureless AR15 rifle in to get headspace checked in 2015 and they literally treated me like I was a criminal and it was an unregistered "California Assault Rifle". Nearly didnt even want to headspace check it. Even had an off Duty LEO there give me static for it, flow chart and Penal Codes be damned, lol.

Both buyer and seller must be CA residents in order to PPT. You might be able to do an FFL transfer if you can find a CA FFL that will accept your rifle.

Try Gunthers in Carlsbad. I used them for a few online purchases to accept the shipment and do the background. Don’t see why they wouldn’t do a ppt but double check. Absolutely great people to deal with

Ace is right, it's not a private party transfer if the seller is in another state. It's a dealer transfer, the same as if the buyer bought it off a gunbroker listing. It matters because the receiving FFL will charge the transfer fee, which can be whatever they chose vs the PPT fee which is limited by law.

On the plus side, it does mean many more FFLs are willing to do this since they can charge more.

Whichever FFL you guys settle on, ask them if they accept shipments directly from individuals vs only from other FFLs. It's not a legal requirement, but some stores have that policy.
