I have many guns all bought in California. The paperwork is dealer dependent. I bought a rifle from Turners and spent an hour filling out their paperwork (computer entry, mostly, on an unfamiliar computer to me) in a busy noisy store. There was a stack of printouts when I finished and most of it was Turner's cover your a-- paperwork. In contrast, a recent purchase through a small dealer had the paperwork you described and nothing more.
I dislike the paperwork. In Arizona even for handguns there is a minimum of paper work and you leave with the gun in hand. To be clear this is what I have observed when my Arizona resident daughter bought two new 1911's at a gun show. There was a NICS check and the purchase process was totally legal in AZ.
Anyway, this break open mag change is temporary for this 22LR upper, as I explained above. I shoot off the bench and this maneuver of breaking the gun open is not that onerous if the gun is not jammed. A good gun never jams...Right???
It was at Bass Pro Shop where the stack of paperwork was massive but Turners had their share of cover your a-- paperwork, but a little less of it.
