I'm looking through this website, but you should look through it, too.
It doesn't look like the M38 falls under the Assault Rifle text in the states laws, and it does hold less then 10 rounds of ammo. However, you or the buyer should call the California police main headquarters and check with how things are run there, as far as how transfers and stuff works.
Well, if you are going to send the gun to California, you'll also have to have it equiped with some kind of trigger lock or other gun safety device.
Look on pg.57 in this PDF file.
