in my opinion, hand forged flintlock smooth bore muzzle loading firearms would be the only firearms the 2nd amendment allows civilians to own. I agree with those calling for you to render them inert. Its highly unlikely they are going to get stolen and used in a crime, but to protect yourself from fines or arrest its the way I would go if it was me.

The rules are different for handguns vs. pistols. This is a quick summary:

That is a big if. To me, it seems like they passed to his mom as joint property through marriage, so he doesn't get the bequest safe harbor. They would have had to be given specifically to him through a written will to count. And with firearms, the technicalities are what land you in jail.

If the firearms were bequeathed to you by your late father, then you are the legal owner already. You don't need a permit for the transfer of said firearms. Not only is this true federally, but this is also true in NJ as well.

FEDERAL LAW:

Title 18 ? Part I ? Chapter 44 ? ? 922

18 USC ? 922 - Unlawful acts

(a) It shall be unlawful?

(3) for any person, other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector to transport into or receive in the State where he resides (or if the person is a corporation or other business entity, the State where it maintains a place of business) any firearm purchased or otherwise obtained by such person outside that State, except that this paragraph (A) shall not preclude any person who lawfully acquires a firearm by bequest or intestate succession in a State other than his State of residence from transporting the firearm into or receiving it in that State, if it is lawful for such person to purchase or possess such firearm in that State, (B) shall not apply to the transportation or receipt of a firearm obtained in conformity with subsection (b)(3) of this section, and (C) shall not apply to the transportation of any firearm acquired in any State prior to the effective date of this chapter;

(5) for any person (other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector) to transfer, sell, trade, give, transport, or deliver any firearm to any person (other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector) who the transferor knows or has reasonable cause to believe does not reside in (or if the person is a corporation or other business entity, does not maintain a place of business in) the State in which the transferor resides; except that this paragraph shall not apply to
(A) the transfer, transportation, or delivery of a firearm made to carry out a bequest of a firearm to, or an acquisition by intestate succession of a firearm by, a person who is permitted to acquire or possess a firearm under the laws of the State of his residence, and
(B) the loan or rental of a firearm to any person for temporary use for lawful sporting purposes



NJ STATE STATUTE:

NJS 2C:58-3j. Firearms passing to heirs or legatees. Notwithstanding any other provision of this section concerning the transfer, receipt or acquisition of a firearm, a permit to purchase or a firearms purchaser identification card shall not be required for the passing of a firearm upon the death of an owner thereof to his heir or legatee, whether the same be by testamentary bequest or by the laws of intestacy. The person who shall so receive, or acquire said firearm shall, however, be subject to all other provisions of this chapter. If the heir or legatee of such firearm does not qualify to possess or carry it, he may retain ownership of the firearm for the purpose of sale for a period not exceeding 180 days, or for such further limited period as may be approved by the chief law enforcement officer of the municipality in which the heir or legatee resides or the superintendent, provided that such firearm is in the custody of the chief law enforcement officer of the municipality or the superintendent during such period.

Wouldn't it be easier to just make them inert? They're reproductions so it's not like you're damaging an original. As far as for self-defense the Brits are much more sophisticated now so that musket is useless.

They are firearms. You will need to have a permit.

Don't mess around with this. It can result in a multi-year prison sentence. Have your mom hold on to them if she can do so legally, while you and your sister each apply for a firearms permit. Then she can legally transfer it to you. It's not a pistol, so you don't need a purchase permit, like you need for each handgun.

Go talk to the people at the firearm permit office at Police HQ and ask very specific questions. Does you mom live in Jersey also? Are the muskets even legal for her to own? Firearms are governed by state law, but you have to apply in your home municipality.
