Default Does a C&R License make transferring a Mosin easier?

I saw a posting in a For Sale ad on another gun site where the poster was selling a Mosin. And in the ad he mentioned that he only wanted to sell to someone with a C&R License because it was simpler?

Does the buyer having a C&R eliminate some paperwork requirement or background check requirement for the seller? This was for a face-to-face sale in MA (if that makes a difference.)

Rich- a person without a FFL cannot sell ANY firearm to a person that is not a resident of the same state- EXCEPT they can sell TO or THRU a FFL in another state.

And a C&R is a FFL. It is a Collector's FFL.

Example- I am in NH, you are in mass. I want a rifle you have. We agree on $$, I send to you, along with a copy of my C&R FFL. You may then ship the rifle directly to me, or I can drive over and pick it up.

The "paperwork" was done when the BATFE issued me that license.

Thanks for the answer, understanding the a C&R is a type of FFL makes it make sense.

You're welcome. There are about 11 different FFLs. A regular Dealer is an 01 FFL, Pawn Shop an 02 FFL, and a Collector of Curio & Relic Firearms, an 03 FFL. Curio & Relic is a 50 year old gun, or a gun on the list published by the BATFE with no regard to age.

Not sure why they guy wold care. Just take the thing to a NH gun shop, pay the $25 let them do the transfer, and that's it. Seems he's limiting his potential customers by requiring an FFL.
