I am in the process of buying a 1941 Lithgow No 1 Mk 3 that is is immaculate condition with matching numbers.

It is a son who is getting rid of some of his father’s rifles after he passed.

I know that in the state of New York I have to go through an FFL dealer (gun store) and pay the transfer fee and have it shipped here.

My question is the seller always required to ship out an old rifle like this through a dealer on his end?   He was planning on shipping it out insured and wrapped in bubble wrap.
He is in Chicago.

I have not bought a rifle out of state in about 25 years. My gun store does not open until 9 AM.

Thanks for any helpful information.

that rifle is not an antiqe , in spite of what modern soldiers would tell you as they have real modern stuff now , it has to predate 1899 to qualfy there - then you could technically recieve it [save new york laws] so YES , FFL shipping is required , and if ii were living in your state i would require FFL to FFL even tho federal law allows individuals to ship to your FFL , 

i hope that helps , i would never disparage another state but some have the most unconstitutional laws in place that i could not in good conscience say otherwise than to protect yourself by paying the extra for FFL to FFL transfer , that way you are legal and above board , the only other caveat is that california has magazine restrictions that could.would affect the enfield 10 round box magazine , 

DO NOT TAKE DIRECT SHIPMENT FROM ANYWHERE INTERSTATE , most state would allow face to face transfer but i would check before doing that , 

any firearm over 50 years old that is not on the ATF list is C&R transferable , yet in your state id be careful to check that as well ,

N.Y. seems to have more restrictive firearm laws than the rest of the U.S.

Most suppliers won't even ship parts to N.Y.state!
