Have bought and sold as a Californicator. Go through an FFL at both ends and it is no problem. The FFL here in CA will do the paperwork to make sure the buyer is legal and make him/her suffer the 10-day CA wait. The FFL holder here will charge, typically, $50 to $100. So for a 10/22 that may be significant. Your FFL holder and the CA FFL holder - unless you are one - will require a fax exchange of FFLs.

If you are not an FFL you can mail direct to his FFL, so long as his FFL will accept a firearm from a non-licensed (no FFL) individual. If you are an FFL and in addition to getting a copy of the receiving CA FFL, you will need to get a specific ID number and register (takes 5 minutes) with CA CFLC system. It's done on line, it's easy - it's a PITA that it exists and how CA can impinge on a federally licensed dealer in that respect is beyond me, but that's the system if you are an FFL. If you're not you don't have to use CFLC.

Don't include any +10 magazines or if you do, have them disassembled. CA has a hi cap mag ban, but kits to repair hi caps already in state is OK.

Several transactions and have not found a CA FFL holder who would deal with other than another FFL holder.

Take a vacation to LaLaLand and you can take your gun with you and sell it to a CA FFL who can transfer it.

You can ship a gun to a manufacturer or gunsmith, for repir, without having an FFL yourself. But AFAIK the exception does not allow you to ship to an FFL for a third party sale.

Since it is a long gun and not a handgun (which must be on the list,) you shouldn't have too hard a time finding an FFL who will receive the gun for the buyer. There is a big difference between handguns and long guns but you still need to check with the buyer's FFL first. Better yet, let the buyer find an FFL who will take it.

guntrader ... where is you FFL holder located. I am in SoCal and have found no FFL holder that will deal with other than another FFL holder. UNLESS, both parties are in the shop and a face to face private party occurs ... still a 10day wait.

You may want to check out the Calguns web site - they should have FFL info and I'm sure can help. Typically the fellow receiving the gun has the responsibiity of finding an FFL who will accept the gun - I'd say you're being a good sport about the deal.
