If he's a state resident and not a felon, then exchange the agreed upon price and call it good!

WA has no requirements other than the federal (as mentioned).

what about transfering the gun into his name?

It's not like a car, there's no "registration." It's like selling a wheelbarrow. The gun's aren't in your "name" right now in any state or federal registry, unlike say your home or car. If you are deeply worried about something, write up a receipt with the serial number and have him sign it, but it's not a necessity or requirement - it would only be for your own records.

to sell a gun in WA to a legal WA resident:

step 1: exchange cash

step 2: exchange gun

step 3: shake hands

step 4: head to the range and be embarrassed when your friend outshoots you with your gun.

If you really want to generate some paperwork, Washington State offers a voluntary transfer form. You could fill it out and keep it for your own records...
