Gun Smith requirements

Do I have to have my gun registered in order for a gunsmith to work on it? Or to send it to the manufacturer for repair?

Firearm registration? No Yes §12025 and §12031 All handgun serial numbers and sales are recorded by the state (registered) in the Department of Justice’s Automated Firearms System. Long arm serial numbers are not recorded, only the sale. While there is no requirement for California residents to register previously owned handguns or firearms with law enforcement, §12025 and §12031 enhance several misdemeanor offenses to felonies if the handgun is not on file in the Department of Justice’s Automated Firearms System. California §12025 states that handguns must be transported unloaded and in a locked box other than the glove compartment or utility box in a motor vehicle. New residents must register handguns (purchased outside of California) with DOJ within 60 days.

The above was copied from:

Gun laws in California - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I think that California DoJ would want you to.

If he's diligent he would. We're supposed to transfer firearms back to the owner if the gun is in our possession for over 24hrs. It would suck to transfer a gun back to an owner who would now fail a NICS check. Better safe than sorry.
