    I am inheriting these rifles but I have quite a few questions.

    I've been able to identify most of the rifles, but I am a bit hazy on a few.

    These are all the guns

    The top rifle is a M1 carbine .30cal, and it is stamped with "I.B.M. CORP", so I assume it was made by IBM during WWII?

    The second from the top is a .22 HMR by Marlin, model #25MN

    The third from the top is a bit strange, it seems that someone recently engraved/etched into the side of the reciever "No4 MKI/2 (F) FTR" So I assume it is a Lee-Enfield SMLE, but I am not sure.

    I can't seem to identify the fourth rifle from the top. It is stamped with chinese markings and the numbers 1955 and 26, along with what I assume to be the serial number underneath.

    I'm also having trouble figuring out the fifth rifle from the top. It is stamped with a star and "1936" on it, as well as "No D".

    The sixth rifle from the top seems to be a Browning model 190 .22LR.

    And finally the bottom two are SKS's.

    I am planning on keeping them and firing them soon, but seeing as how I live in CA, will there be any legal snags?

    Keep in mind that I have never owned a firearm and have only shot a handful.

    Thanks!

    4th and 5th are mosins. 4th looks like an M44 and 5th looks like a Russian 91/30 perhaps.

    I dont see any problem with those here in CA. If you ever want to sell one of the SKS's though, let me know.

    I'm assuming that #4 is a Chinese T53. Does the receiver on it look like this?

    [​IMG]

    It's the chinese version of the Russain M44. I'm pretty sure it was made on the same equipment, but the stocks are a little softer wood than the russians used.

    Do NOT let the bottom SKS come into CA. It looks like it is a sks that was designed for the detach mags from the start. You WILL get fucked up the ass if you bring that into CA, as that is an assault weapon under CA law.

    what happens if, in a case like this, someone brings it into CA who doesn't know any better? do they just confiscate the firearm, or do they also press charges?

    The state isn't required to teach you laws, so if you get busted with one you're still fucked.



    To OP:

    I'll take that bad boy off your hands. 100 bucks shipped to my FFL. :big grin:

    well i know that ignorance is not defense, but that doesn't guarantee the DA will attempt to prosecute.

    It's California. Home of the baby killing, helicopter destroying, jihad bringing, evil assault rifles.

    :bowdown::bowdown: Thanks for the help

    I'll visit a local gunsmith or something to double check everything, I wouldn't want to find myself on the wrong side of the law:noes::noes:.

    Hopefully I will be able to see my aunt and pick up these weapons by Christmas season:x:

    maybe, but it looks like a different stock shape than the top SKS.

    I just don't want him to get in trouble. :dunno:
