Ruger has finally responded and offered to replace my MK512. However, I need a SF Bay area FFL for this transfer.

What are the usual fees for transfer of replacement firearm vs purchase firearm?

You should not need an FFL. The firearm should be sent directly to you.

I don't know of any California law forbidding it and the Feds certainly allow it. See 27CFR 478.147.

TITLE 27--ALCOHOL, TOBACCO PRODUCTS AND FIREARMS

CHAPTER II--BUREAU OF ALCOHOL, TOBACCO, FIREARMS, AND EXPLOSIVES,
DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

PART 478_COMMERCE IN FIREARMS AND AMMUNITION--Table of Contents

Subpart I_Exemptions, Seizures, and Forfeitures

Sec. 478.147 Return of firearm.

A person not otherwise prohibited by Federal, State or local law may
ship a firearm to a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, or
licensed dealer for any lawful purpose, and, notwithstanding any other
provision of this part, the licensed manufacturer, licensed importer, or
licensed dealer may return in interstate or foreign commerce to that
person the firearm or a replacement firearm of the same kind and type.
See Sec. 478.124(a) for requirements of a Form 4473 prior to return. A
person not otherwise prohibited by Federal, State or local law may ship
a firearm curio or relic to a licensed collector for any lawful purpose,
and, notwithstanding any other provision of this part, the licensed
collector may return in interstate or foreign commerce to that person
the firearm curio or relic.

Ruger is sending a new pistol, destroying the one I sent in. This means a new serial number.

It doesn't matter. A replacement firearm may also be sent directly to you. You will have to register the new pistol with the DOJ and remove the old one from your name.

Use this form to register the new pistol. It's going to cost you $19.00.
