Found a shotgun at a antique shop

Found a shotgun at a local antique shop for 40$ and was wondering if there was any way I could get it registered in California. I didn't buy it with malicious intent and just wanted to restore it. I understand what I did isn't exactly legal but I also figured that if I can't legalize it I could always make a profit off it at one of those buy back programs

    Yeah bro go to your local police department and go to the front desk clerk and say you have a single shot shotgun you want to register under your name, it's only like $20. Then it'll be completely legalized.

        Should he point it at them so they can see it's unloaded?

        In the 60's, my granddad in sweden took his hunting rifle on the bus, slung over his shoulder, to fix some paperwork at the police in stockholm. And then he took it back home again the same way and nobody cared. God I wish I could experience living in a high trust society

    The reason it is $40 is that its a broken peice of junk mean to be sold to chain restaurant decorators.
    in the CA if its older than 1899 its just legal but in this case you don't need to bother, it's nonfunctional crap

    I've restored a bunch of shottys. Looks like an old stevens or sears knocm off. Register per what another anon said just to avoid any frickery. Get a new stock off ebay. One for this gun is probably like $50. Do a thorough cleaning. Complete disassembly and cleaning. Do a water boil conservation to stop any rust from spreading. Oil the wood with Danish oil and sand in with some 1000 grit. Be careful with any checkering. EMBRACE the brown metal. Don't try to get it back to blue. The brown patina on old guns always looks best. At most...get some Birchwood Casey Plum Brown to touch up or make more uniform. And of course...replace any broken parts. Can probably find them on numrich.

      Then what. How's he going to address the gap in the action which is large enough to drive a bus through? If you're suggesting he get practice on a cheap beater to learn gunsmithing skills then yeah, it's a great idea. But that gun is fricked, the amount of effort it would take to get it to be safe to shoot would be absurd.

          Anon, are you moronic? Honestly? I'm not talking about the stock. I'm talking about the ACTION. Maybe this pic will help your peabrain.

        >gap in the action
        Probably by installing a correct diameter hinge pin, instead of a bolt that's 1/16" undersize?

    Depending on how old it is, you might not need to register it. If its an antique, you are good to go. Registering a weapon in CA is a pain in the ass. It looks to be that you didnt even technically buy the weapon legally as well. CA has mandatory background checks and a 10day wait period. If you didnt do that, then its not a firearm legally. Just dont register it.
