Default Selling a listed AW out of state.

I have a buddy who inherited a "Made in China" AKS underfolder. I'm told it's made by Norinco. Obviously its on the AW list here. The gun is currently stored out of state, in Nevada or Arizona I believe. As far as I can tell he has 2 options.

1: I demill the gun and help him build one from a 100% receiver. The problem I see with this is that the receivers aren't easy to come by for chinese rifles. It also reduces the value of what appears to be a nice rifle.

2: He sells it to someone out of state. My question with this is how can he go about selling it? He's not an out of state resident, so he can't sell it privately. Can he sell it on gunbroker and deliver it to any FFL out of state?

Is there a way to take it in to a CA FFL and have them hold it until it can be sold on gunbroker? I assume this would constitute a felony given that he would have to possess it in state to deliver it to the FFL. This would be his preferred option.

Any help you can give would be appreciated.

1) Yes, it can be done.

2) The firearm would need to be shipped to a FFL, which is quite common.

3) Only if the CA FFL has a so-called a-salt weapon permit, but since it is highly unlikely that it would be sold to anyone in CA, it would just be a waste of money. It would have to be shipped to said FFL. It makes more sense to hold it out of CA. You could also take it all apart, then it is no longer a semi-auto, center-fire firearm, so the ban would not apply.
