Hey guys there is a person here in town that wants to purchase my m4. Do I need to file any paperwork or any thing of that nature to sell him the rifle. If the sale does happen it will be face to face.

When you say M4, I picture a full auto, selective fire weapon. Is you gun full auto, or semi-auto only?

All you need then is a buyer with CASH, I would use a bill of sale and any other means you feel to cover your a$$

You might ask if there's any legal reason he can't own or purchase a firearm (convicted felon ect...)
If he's young ask to see his ID to make sure you're not selling to a minor.

In Texas it is illegal for you to sell to someone whom you know can not legally own a firearm. If you use a bill of sale (you can find one on www.texasguntrader.com to download for free) the purchaser affirms that he is of legal age, and can legally own a firearm. Both you and he sign it. Legally, I don't think this is required, but it is a good CYA.

I always ask for valid ID (drivers license), like to know who I sold it to in case of future issues

If anything is in doubt take it to a FFL and have them transfer it to verify he can legally purchase the gun. May cost you 25 bucks or so but may be worth it.
