    i live in N.E. and i want to trade some chevy small bock heads to a friend in Missouri. for a marlin 30-30. can this be done legally or do we need the asistance of a licensed gun dealer. theirs no money involved. but state lines will be crossed.

    You're crossing state lines. That's the key.

    Not legal.

    You may buy or trade for a rifle across a state line from a FFL dealer, but not from John Doe. I think a dealer could take possession of the rifle, list the gun in his bound book and then sign it out to you to keep the deal legit. Probably not for free, though.
