I think you are wrong. The decision will be made based on how far and how hard the son and the ex-wife/mother want to push the matter. The mother is not a prohibited person. The son could sell the guns to her, give her a signed bill of sale, and she could then take legal action against the father for refusing to release her property to her.
I understand the moral issue, but what's morally correct here is different from what's legal. If the guns do not belong to the father (and he has acknowledged that they do not), then he has NO legal right to refuse to send them to whatever non-prohibited person the owner
of the guns tells him to send them to.
