    Rifle Transfer Help

    Howdy,

    I live in Virginia and a few years go give a rifle to my wife's cousin who lives in MD.

    He now wants to sell it o another guy in MD.

    Since I was the original purchaser, do I have any problems if he does indeed sell it?

    Thanks, in advance.

    Typically, for a "non-regulated" rifle just have him get a signed "Sale/Purchase" receipt with the make, model, serial numbers, seller and purchaser with photo ID's, blood type, and a sample of DNA. Just kidding about the blood type and DNA.

    I'm sure someone will pull up the MD transfer rules, but you should be OK.

    PURCHASE

    Maryland does not regulate the sale of rifles or shotguns and no permit is required to purchase a rifle or shotgun. Maryland does regulate the sale, transfer, rent and possession of regulated firearms, which consist of handguns and assault weapons. A person who is not a regulated firearms dealer may not sell, rent, transfer, or purchase any regulated firearm without going through a regulated firearms dealer. Alternatively, the prospective seller/transferor and prospective buyer/transferee may complete the transaction through a designated law enforcement agency.

    ^I'm with Rock & Glock on this one^^^^^^^^^^


    Just get her cousin to send you a signed dated receipt saying that you gave/sold him the firearm, and you should be in the clear.
    Then he can do what he want to with it.
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

    From what I read I do not believe he can do a Face to Face transfer without going thru a dealer or the State Police

    That is only for a "regulated firearm" unless I missed something?

    Dependent on the rifle, he might need to check and see if it meets the MD definition of an "assault weapon".
