Help with curio choices

I live in CA and we can buy 50 year old rifles without going thru an FFL or registering the rifles. CA has handgun registration and will soon require same for long guns.

I want to buy maybe a half dozen long guns that won't have any registration or paper issues......... all perfectly legal with curios. I already have milsurps, so I'm looking for quality civilian models in the 1958 to 1962 era, nothing obscure.

I would like to cover rimfire thru high powered centerfire including a carbine, varmint gun, etc.

I have no clue as to what are good choices or what's available for this era.
I kick myself for getting rid of my old nylon 66.

50 years old??
Without a FFL?
In California?
That don't sound right to me?

Probably over half of my 50+ modern gun collection is older then that!

I would not even know where to start trying to make you a list of guns over 50 years old you should buy.

Maybe check out a 1961 Gun Digest or Shooters Bible at the library??

But you can't go wrong with Colt, S&W, Winchester, Ithaca, Browning, good U.S. or German WWII mil-sup stuff, etc.

They allow in state private sale of long guns over 50 years old without having to go through an FFL. All other private sales have to go through a dealer, and of course, out of state purchases requires an FFL of some type.
