Default Importation of Handgun 50+ years old into CA

Hello,
My question is what is the process (or is there one) to accept a 50+ year old handgun (MFGR date is 1920's/1930's) from an out of state resident. Is there a way for a CA FFL to accept and do a transfer to myself? Are there exceptions for importation due to the antique age?

50+ year old handguns are exempt from the CA Roster of Certified Handguns.
They can be shipped to your local FFL and then handled like any other handgun purchase.
Check with your local FFL as to how they want it shipped and what fees they will charge to do the transfer.

Do you have a citation for the part of the law that exempts 50+ year old handguns?

Please see 32110(g) for the exemption. Also please note that the statutes are kinda confusing. Section 32100(a) exempts C&R weapons that were manufactured prior to 19000 but if you continue to read on to section 32110(g), you'll find a more encompassing exemption that covers any weapon over 50 years old.

It's clearly stated on the CA DOJ webpage. Under Federal Law any weapon at least 50 years old qualifies as a Curio/Relic.

Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale

As of January 1, 2001, no handgun may be manufactured within California, imported into California for sale, lent, given, kept for sale, or offered/exposed for sale unless that handgun model has passed firing, safety, and drop tests and is certified for sale in California by the Department of Justice. Private party transfers, curio/relic handguns, certain single-action revolvers, and pawn/consignment returns are exempt from this requirement.

This is critical as the transfer fee can easily run $75 - $100 on top of the DROS fees.

Does this apply to guns that were manufactured more than 50 years ago, but are still manufactured, and the current model is off the roster? For example, the S&W model 19 has been manufactured since the 50s, but the 2.5" barrel model is not on the roster. If I find a model 19 with that barrel that by serial number was manufactured in 1964 (which is 55 years ago), the roster does not apply? Similarly, are you saying that the roster does not apply to a mid-1960's Colt Commander 1911? There are still lots of 1911's around, some of which are even on the roster, but the Colt is not.

Yes, exemption still applies regardless of whether the model is current as long as the build date of your c&r is 50 yrs ago.+
You also have to pay sales tax besides transfer fee and does.

The roster does not apply to guns made 50.000000001+ years ago, period. No matter how cool they are, no matter who made them etc, and that includes Colt 1911s. The only requirement is that they be generally in their original configuration.

It doesn't matter if the gun is still in production. If the specific gun you want to purchase was manufactured over 50 years ago, it is considered a Curio/Relic and is exempt from the Ca roster.

Thank you for the explanation! For some reason, I had in my mind that a gun becomes a C&R only once the model or type goes out of production for 50 years.
