Default Non roster handgun PPT question

Can I as a California resident buy a non roster handgun from another California resident and have it shipped to my FFL? I'm in norcal, he's ih socal for example. Thanks.

Edit: It's a modern single action 5 shot revolver with a 7 1/2" barrel.

1. Since the firearm is being shipped, it is not a PPT.
2. If the firearm is a handgun, then it needs to be on the Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale or be exempt from it.
3. Dimensionally compliant single-action revolvers are exempt. [PC 32100(a)]

So, in your scenario...
You can purchase the single-action revolver from SoCal and have it shipped to NorCal.
Because the single-action revolver you are buying qualifies for the single-action revolver exemption, a CA FFL dealer can transfer it to you.
But, because the firearm is being shipped, the CA FFL dealer can legally charge any amount of money to facilitate the transfer.

Penal Code 32100
(a) Article 4 (commencing with Section 31900) and Article 5 (commencing with Section 32000) shall not apply to a single-action revolver that has at least a five-cartridge capacity with a barrel length of not less than three inches, and meets any of the following specifications:
(1) Was originally manufactured prior to 1900 and is a curio or relic, as defined in Section 478.11 of Title 27 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
(2) Has an overall length measured parallel to the barrel of at least seven and one-half inches when the handle, frame or receiver, and barrel are assembled.
(3) Has an overall length measured parallel to the barrel of at least seven and one-half inches when the handle, frame or receiver, and barrel are assembled and that is currently approved for importation into the United States pursuant to the provisions of paragraph (3) of subsection (d) of Section 925 of Title 18 of the United States Code.
