    hi, i inherited a mauser cal. 270 that is over 50 years old. it has been handed down from father to son and now to me. i would like to know if i need to register that firearm. and what i need to do. i believe we do not have the original registration because it was bought so long ago and has been handed down the family. i live in california. any help will help thanks

    This really depends on if you are a Liberal. As for me even though everyone says that it is a good idea to register a firearm, I will not, nor will most people in Texas. It is nice to own a Gun knowing that if something ever does happen that you will never have to surrender it or pay taxes on it. I would recommend that if you would like to register something. Register yourself in the NRA. That helps keep our second amendment. ????? ???? (Come and Take Them)

      Don't register. Fight the power.

        Always have one gun the government doesn't know about.

            Far as I know, Californication doesn’t require any registration as of yet for a bolt action rifles. Coming soon if you folks let it!

              Under the radar means off the radar, keep it that way.

                I don't know if the laws have changed in 12 years, but it was not necessary to register rifles when I lived in California. If that does change, I expect it'll be a requirement in New York, Massachusetts or California before it spreads elsewhere.

                    Mlutterroth,
                    By all means, keep a personal (photo supported) record of the rifle and serial number for insurance purposes or in case you're a burglary victim, but I frankly don't believe you have to register a rifle in California and I'd ask a local gun shop or a deputy sheriff about it. I lived in Orange County for 25+ years, belonged to a gun club that lost its lease to developers in 1996, but it wasn't a requirement to register rifles.
                    By the way, I own a few Mauser rifles (M98 variants) that were produced between World Wars I and II, and they age very well if they receive the care they deserve. Enjoy your rifle. The .270 is a fine cartridge, and I hope this rifle serves you well. The family history can only enhance its personal value to you.
