    I live in Oregon and here is my question.I'm about to trade a rifle for another rifle.Do the ferderal "ATF now the BATFE" trump Oregon state law?.
    I'm trading a Mosin Nagant for a 8MM Mauser.The person that I want to trade with is a "collector of curios and relics" holder. My FFL says that I can't just box up the Mosin rifle and just send it to the "C&R" holder.I have read off the batfe site FAQ.See here.


    "A person may sell or transfer a firearm to a licensee in any State. However, a firearm other than a curio or relic may not be transferred interstate to a licensed collector."

    My Mosin falls under C&R so I read it as I a private party can send the MN to him with no problem.Now the word "Licensee means C&R holder or another
    FFL holder?


    "A nonlicensee may mail a shotgun or rifle to a resident of his or her own State or to a licensee in any State."

    Again I just want to ship it with no FFL involved it's going to a C&R holder?

    MY FFL is charging $35.00 for a transfer I have no problem paying him to do
    the transfer from the C&R holder for the Mauser 8MM rifle.The Mauser has a plastic stock and a muzzle brake and the barrel has been cut down
    "sportered" and drilled for a scope I believe it's now not a C&R rifle now
    my FFl says yes it's not a C&R rifle the seller said that it need to go to a FFl 01 that makes sence.I hope this is not to craxy of a question.Should I look for
    another FFL holder?

    If the other guy is from Oregon, then you don't need to do a FFL transfer. Just ship the rifle through usps. Doing a FFL transfer or bill of sale is an option if both parties reside from the same state.
