don't think that's how it works....if I'm not mistaken, if an 03 FFL holder obtains it FOR you, it would be a straw purchase and out of the scope of his license. If you are not an 03 holder yourself you'll have to go through an 01 FFL and do the DROS and fees.

Cancel order, what you are asking for is straight illegal.

03 C&R FFL holders can not engage in business. Weidners will not ship to an 01/07 CA FFL.

If you don't have a C&R you are out of luck. Sorry.

+1 on canceling the order. Can't do what you're asking legally.

No beucase the retailer will not accept orders from 01/07's as already stated.

Hate to have to point this out, but this should have been researched before you placed the order. Wideners clearly states that they will not ship to a FFL dealer in CA and what you are asking is illegal for a 03 FFL. A 03 FFL is only to be used to enhance the 03 holders collection. It is not to be used to receive firearms for others.

At this point you need to cancel the order and order your SKS from a company that will ship to a CA dealer.

If the name on the bill of sale is yours and the receiving 03 obviously isn't, you're out of luck. Your best bet is to watch the classifieds.

As you've gathered from the responses of others you need an FFL03.

So just apply for one!

You may have to cancel this order from Wideners but eventually you'll be able to receive these rifles yourself.

One guy got his FFL03 in less than 7 days, I got mine in less than 10 calendar days...try your luck.

I sent off for mine 30 days ago and am still waiting but it is worth it. The discounts alone should make up for it. Not to mention the fact that you don't have to pay FFL fees of about $80 or so and taxes.

Yikes! Cancel the order and do some homework before you try to buy another firearm.
