California dealer transfers refer to the process of transferring a firearm from one licensed firearms dealer (seller) to another licensed firearms dealer (buyer) in the state of California. This type of transfer is often required when a firearm is purchased from an out-of-state dealer or individual and needs to be legally transferred to a California resident.

The steps involved in a California dealer transfer:

1. Identifying a licensed firearms dealer in California who is willing to facilitate the transfer.

2. Arranging for the out-of-state dealer or individual to ship the firearm to the California dealer.

3. The California dealer receiving the firearm will conduct a background check on the buyer (California resident) through the California Department of Justice (DOJ) to ensure they are legally eligible to possess the firearm.

4. Once the background check is completed and approved, the California dealer can transfer the firearm to the buyer in compliance with all state and federal laws.
