I moved to Oregon from Nevada and have an issue with an FFL transfer. It is for a Uberti replica Win 1873 lever action rifle. In Nevada my background check always came back to the FFL as "unresolved" after three business days, and the NV FFL would simply hand over the rifle at that time. No problems, no issues, over several years of purchases. Not so in Oregon. My local FFL has had the transfer for two weeks now, and I've heard nothing back from him. So I called the Oregon state police firearms unit and finally spoke to someone. I learned the issue is an arrest from 1975 with no conviction/disposition listed on the outcome. Although I was booked, the charges were dropped after a matter of hours and the case never went to court. Unfortunately California never entered a "disposition" about that on my "criminal record" in 1975. So the state police clerk said the state cannot issue a 'proceed' to the FFL until they receive the disposition of the 1975 arrest from California. I informed the clerk that there is no disposition to receive because the charges were vacated and the "case" never went to trial. The clerk said that's too bad because Oregon must hear back from California before they can proceed, and all I can do is wait. Meanwhile I've heard any issue with California can take many months to clear; and the Oregon State police said it's not unusual for such a situation to be on hold for one year or more. Needless to say I am quite disheartened by this. I am out $1000 for a rifle that is sitting in an FFL's back room because he is afraid of the state if he turns over the rifle to me without hearing back even after two weeks have elapsed with no response. Bottom line is that this is clearly a violation of my 2nd amendment rights due to the incompetence of the state of California forty years ago. I've been told that I can start this process all over again with the Uberti rifle by using a different FFL and hope to find one that will deliver after the three days. The FFL here has said he has no issue forwarding the transfer to a different dealer, and my old FFL in Nevada will vouch for me if that helps. Otherwise I will be waiting on California forever... Is it possible another FFL could help me with this transfer? Any suggestions appreciated.
