Default Legality of transfer of WW2 Lugers

A family friend called because he is moving and discovered several WW2 Lugers apparently left in his basement by the previous owners 10+ years ago.

Can any of you gun legal beagles advise on the legality (or not) of him doing a PPT transfer of those handguns via an FFL?

This same question seems to keep coming up, and the answer never really changes.

The bottom line is that the finder is required to turn them over to the local LE agency. Please refer to Civil Code section 2080.1

The LE agency then has 90 days to locate the owner of the property.

If the owner cannot be located, then the finder has the right to claim title to the found property from the LE agency. Please refer to Civil Code section 2080.3

Once the finder has proper title to the guns, he/she can either have possession of the guns transferred to them by an FFL, or they can have an FFL transfer the guns to another party.

lucky him California did not have gun registration for the longest time. Chances are that they were not registered and they will be turned over to him.

It would be nice to see some pix of the items in question.
Especially if they may never be seen again.

You could always have a local police department to see if they are stolen usually you would have to turn them in to a police department so they could trace the owner or see if they were used in any crime and that process can take up to 90 days then they could reclaim the property if it is not flagged as stolen or used in a crime by contacting a Ffl to Pick up the guns from the property room in the police department
