    Not sure if this is the place but i have a question about transferring an ar in the state of mn. So my grandfather has a colt sporter ar-15. He wants to give it to me. He purchased it in Nebraska quite some time ago. I live in mn and so does he now. I have seen the permit to purchase but how does one go about transferring a weapon? Any pointers will help. Thanks so much

    get with an FFL in your area and explain your situation. may not even need to transfer it. depends on the laws in your state.

    Hopefully in MN there are not draconian gun laws that complicate the passing down of a firearm within a family.

    Treat her with respect, she's a quality firearm and a family heirloom!

    At this time (2/2013) in Mn, there are no registration or transfer requirements for rifles. As long as the recipient is not a prohibited person, private sales or transfers are OK.

    Enjoy your new firearm.

    Even here in Kommiefornia, if you great grandad, grandad, or dad (or mother) gives you a firearm, so long as you are not a prohibited person, no paperwork is required.
