    Anything that falls into the classification of a "rifle" (16") can be transferred privately without paperwork.

    however, it is the responsibility of the person getting rid of the gun to make sure the person is not prohibited.

    Most people I know (and i've done it this way a few times), is to have a bill of sale. There are free one available for printing and use here:
    I also ask and have been asked to show my LTCF since if I have one, chances are I'm not a prohibited person.
