Default Importing an M1A from out of state

So recently I have been seeking an M1A, the forum got some used ones but I haven;t found anything I wanted yet. So my friend had this really sweet used m1a with forged receiver he had for a while and offered me his rifle.

So the problem is that how can he send it over to a CA ffl, to my knowledge if he could just switch out the flash hider to a compensator, it would be compliant for a M1A. Should I be safer and strip it further and send over individual parts, and dros the receiver only? Not sure with all these laws around but can't risk a felony for me and my friend.

Replace fh with brake or one with grooves no holes or slots.

^^^ This is exactly what you need. Flash hider must be removed before shipping to CA. The parts above can be installed before, or later.

Also, there's no such thing as a Springfield armory M1-A with a forged receiver.
FYI

Just remove the FH, no need to replace it to just get it here.

I sent a guy in Texas my pliers for doing it, he removed the FH and threw it with my pliers in the box with the rife and sent it to my FFL.

Thank you all for the info! I think I'm just gonna have him drop the FH and ship over.

Also I think its a Bula M14, must be forged correct?

That is a horse of a different color. Yes, it looks like the Bula receivers are machined out of forged blanks.

Note also that he cannot include magazines over 10 rounds of capacity.

Also, make sure that it not the "XM21 Law Enforcement Model". You need one with a standard rifle stock.

I don't know about the one in question, but on some SA's the flash hider is a mother to get off. I couldn't take mine off so I took it to a gunsmith. He had to use a MAP gas torch and LOTS of heat to get it loose.

The pre-Clinton AW Ban receivers were forged, no?

None of the Sprongfield Inc rifles were forged. The original m1a casting mold is out there still. Its been a long time for me so I don't remember who now owns it. I do remember something about Devine, Elmer, and Texas. That has to do with the original casting mold.

We’re the USGI receivers forged or cast?

USGI M14 receivers are forged. Polytech/Norinco have forged receivers. Springfield and Fulton are cast.

Forged like sailormilan said.
Don't confuse Sprongfield inc (yes they misspelled their name on a few m1a rifles) with Springfield National Armory.
The m1a is a M14 clone but not allM14 clones are m1a.
They didn't believe the ATF would approve the rifle if its named M14. The letter A looks close enough to the number 4 so they went with m1A.
