    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).

    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...
