I believe they fall under the NFA (the BATF has NFA weapons identified on their website).

Are they legal in Kalifornicate? Go to the source and ask them. They should have a listing of firearms that have passed their requirements and tests. If the cane firearm is not on the list, then it is probably not legal in that state.

In this "wonderful" state we are probably not because we could go on a massacre with it.

There are a number of variety of cane guns. Some antiques, some NFAs.

First, to be an antique firearm, it must have been made prior to 1-1-1899. That is, not that model, but THE GUN had to have left the maker's bench prior to that date. Weapons that use loose ball and powder are also antiques, without regard to date made.

Let's say you have a Remington Cane Gun- in caliber 32 S&W. That falls under the NFA- National Firearms Act- as an AOW- Any Other Weapon- since it is a disguised firearm. Must be registered with the BATFE, and a $5 transfer tax paid.

IF NOT ALREADY REGISTERED- it cannot be registered. It must be surrendered to the BATFE for destruction. Possession of an unregistered AOW carries the same penalty as possing an unregistered machine gun.
