Default PCS to Hawaii. Gun confiscated. FML

Just PCS'd to good ol' Oahu, HI. My household goods came in Friday and I had 3 days to register my firearms with Honolulu PD. So stupid me, I didn't even bother researching what I can and can't possess here. Long story short, my Draco AK47 pistol was confiscated. They will hold it until I find a FFL here to transfer it back to the states for me. Pistol magazines limited to 10 rounds. Rifle magazines surprisingly are standard capacity. So in conclusion, don't be that guy, and read the local gun laws

I'm selling it to my brother-in-law back in CA so I guess it was fun while it lasted. Oh and the process just to purchase a firearm here is ridiculous! I should've bought more toys in free WA while I was there.

I remember when I lived on Maui that the long gun (rifle & shotguns) permits (to buy) were only good for a year.
And I also remember a friend that had to see a doctor to have the doctor sign a note stating he was mentally ok, just so he could buy a pistol.

That was a few years ago now so maybe things have improved.

I also remember thinking the ammo was overly expensive (maybe because the weight of shipping it in.) But now I think that about ammo in California as well.

on the plus side,
I think you can own a .50 caliber.

and how does your brother-in-law receive it from the dealer since it is off-roster?

Nope. Only directly up and down. Can you just convert it back to a full size AK?

Not possible with this model. It started as a pistol and was never a full size AK.

I'm pretty sure private party transfers are exempt from the CA roster. This is how LEOs are selling unwanted non-roster guns to non-LEO CA residents.

The good news is you can now remove your bullet button(s).
EDIT- since OP is in HAWAII.

Clearly, you would not be able to bring it back to California as a pistol; however, since you cannot DROS it back to someone in California since it is off roster and no longer here, at least you would still be able to own it as a rifle. Since the alternative is to sell it to someone in a free state, and free states are allowed to convert from rifle to pistol, you could always go that route later.

Thats odd. I had my Sig M400 and Draco AK pistol there years ago when I was stationed and left it at our armory. Never took it off base. I got an ok by the CO so it was on federal property and the GMS/investigative service had it in their armory. HPD had no jurisdiction what so ever. I never registered them either. Especially when I was only going to be there temporarily. I literally have no time for bull**** laws I never voted for or am 100% against. lol

I should've done that. But I was just trying to do the right thing considering I would've garnered attention if I shot it at a local range.

It was nice but at the same time not all CO's will approve or sign off on this. I shot at the base range when I had time and left it there with them when I was finished. It was secure and never was used outside of the base. That part pissed me off a little but I was ok with it as I shot like once or twice a month.
