I want to sell a Garand receiver to someone in California. It is a build that never materialized. I don't have an FFL. Does this present a problem? According to what I am reading, I just need to send it to a type 1 FFL in California due to the fact it is no longer C & R eligable. Is that correct? Or am I missing something?

Please. No California sucks, or I don't deal with them comments. They don't really help me.

Both Federal law and California law allow a nonlicensee to ship firearms to a California dealer. Unlike FFL's, you have no special hoops to jump through.

Some FFL's refuse to accept shipments from nonlicensees, so tell your buyer he needs to find a dealer who will accept from you, OR he will be responsible for covering the additional expense of you having your dealer ship it for you.

You are correct, a Garand receiver is not C&R eligible.

dogtown tom has it exactly right.

Your buyer has to find the right FFL.
