Re: Daewoo DR200
It's going to be a matter of state law, Steve, and I don't know Connecticut law enough to advise you. In many states, individuals can transfer firearms to other individuals FROM THE SAME STATE with no paperwork/NICS check whatsoever. If the state you lived in at the time of the transfer is like this, then the transfer is already legally done (assuming that your father was also a resident of the same state as you at the time of the transfer).
If the state you lived in at the time required any kind of paperwork to transfer a gun from one individual to another, then the gun still technically belongs to your father. Now that you live in different states, you would have to have a FFL dealer complete the transfer for you, usually for a cost of $15-$25. This also applies if you and your father lived in different states at the time of the transfer.
Again, I do not know your state laws well enough to be true legal counsel (nor am I a lawyer, anyway). My best advice is to find a competent a lawyer in your state and ask him. Even if you have to pay for an hour of his legal fees, it's better to pay $200 to a lawyer than thousands to a court.
As a side note, unless Connecticut has its own "assault weapons ban" (like California does), the "pre-ban" status of your gun only matters if it has more than 10 imported parts from the BATF list.
