Default Private party purchase of Non-roster handgun in CA

I have inquired of a CA FFL where he is located to be able to go see a handgun he has for sale on another list, GunsAmerica. His reply was that he cannot sell the gun in California.

My first inclination is to disagree, because face-to-face transfers and PPTs are legal in California of non-roster handguns.

Can anyone shed light on this for me, and probably others who have faced the same dilemna dealing, or trying to, with an FFL who thinks non-roster guns are simply not transferable in our great state?

Thanks, Mariposawrick

A FFL selling out of his inventory, cannot sell you an off roster handgun unless you are exempted via LEO or fairy dust.

If it actually were a PPT it would work.

most likely that off-roster handgun is in his inventory. If that is the case, he is correct that he can't sell it to you unless you are roster-exempt.

If that handgun was not in his inventory, but was still owned by a private party seller, then yes, it could be PPT'ed to you through that dealer. If the handgun was cosigned to the dealer, then it could be sold to you as a PPT transfer if you went to the dealer to do the DROS.

Do you want an AOW or C&R SBS/SBR in CA?

Thanks all. Clear as mud to me now. Your explanations make sense, just not the law. Chad
