    Since you had possession of it and it reads like you skirted a CA law buy a new lower (can be found for cheap now), move all the parts over, and destroy the original lower. Or just sell the parts except the lower.

    Unless you can prove you moved out of CA before the law passed and received it from the original buyer before that date it could come back to haunt one of you if it ends up in the system again. That is a long shot but possible.

    Honestly it just isn't worth the risk (though very low) when a new lower can be had for $40.

    I'm not a lawyer, but you and the rifle are out of California's jurisdiction if you live in Austin. I don't believe you will have any problems with the ATF as they don't enforce state laws, just the Federal laws. Sell it, and don't worry about it. Or just keep it and don't worry about it. Or have it transferred to the new owner though an FFL. Just don't ever take it back to California.

    That part doesn't even matter. Nearly all private transfers in CA need to go through a dealer, where a NICS check is done, a California DoJ check is done and then a 10-day wait. Transfers between in-laws aren't exempt from this process.

    A serial number trace will go right back to the BIL.

    I was just wondering about this earlier.
    I didn't know the "how to's" about California transfer process.

    Haven't familiarized myself yet with that aspect of the law, but immedite family direct transfers/gifts are still allowed in CA, correct?

    Wouldn't it be more accurate to say it was 'actually' a gift from his sister, who simply instructed her husband to do the work and get it to him? I mean, it was mostly hers anyway, being married in CA and all. ;)

    Yes but there's still a lot of minutiae you need to ensure is in order. I like Dawico's solution the best. California is ruthless when it comes to prosecuting otherwise law abiding gun owners.

    My guess is that if you were out of California you don't have a lot to worry about

    Years of living in Kali has mushed your brain.

    Your gun is no special snowflake, it is just another gun in Texas. Shoot it, sell it, whatever like any other gun. Its Kali history is irrelevant.
