Recommended Posts

how do I ship a pre 1898 pistol from ga to OK?  Do I need a copy of his driver's license?  Anything else I need to do?

Go on the BATF website look in the frequently asked questions portion you will or should be able to get a definitive answer there. If you can't find the answer there call the 800 number listed.

Honestly, I would go to an FFL and ask them what is the best course of action.

Pre 1898 is not regulated by federal law however local and state laws can differ. Getting his information can be an extra layer of protection for yourself. I don’t know Oklahoma law but here in Texas you could mail straight to me nothing needed

I have asked FFL's and BATF agents questions and not always got the correct answer. Their website will give you the right answer.

That is true but when they give you an answer and you ask them for their full name and to spell it so that you can keep it in your records their off the cuff answers usually get retracted really fast and replaced by "I'm not sure" or "you need to talk to this department".

As mentioned, go to the ATFE website. Print out the regs. Then check the regs in the receiver’s state. When in doubt ask an FFL ....although that can sometimes be iffy too.

Believe it or not, that’s the same for California. Maybe Texas and California aren’t that different after all ^_^

Pre 1899, OR a REPLICA of a pre-1899 gun that does not use modern ammo.

Something else to bear in mind is "does your carrier recognize that it may be/is legal'.  Even at that they may refuse to ship except from dealer to dealer or at all.

FFL may be the way to go then.  Mine can ship it less than I can and only charges me 20 to do it.
