I have been here a number of times, but have not written a review yet. They are always super friendly and transfers are quick and easy. You don't have to schedule an appointment to do a transfer, which is a huge plus, since so many FFLs require it now.
If you're a WA resident they will be more than happy to help you if you are looking to buy or transfer long guns. They are my go to since 1639 passed in Washington, since they have great service and are pretty close to me. If federal law would let people buy pistols in states other than their state of residence, I'd use them for all my transfers. The only downside is they're located in a "sketchy" part of town.
For a pawnshop, they also have a pretty good selection of firearms (around thirty pistols and maybe two dozen rifles).
Quick service, friendly staff next to a strip club now.

Would you recommend this resource?
Started using Money Market to do my online purchase and then private party transfers when I moved to the eastside.Very friendly staff. Transfer price is $40 that includes BGC. Parking is the biggest issue very limited.
Was there yesterday and had my first private party transfer done. Went really smoothly and pj was very helpful. He was willing to make an exception to do the transfer for me at 530 pm which is 30 min before they close even though he said that they usually don't do it after 5. Luckily for me my background checks are pretty much instant so I was able to walk out within 30 with my firearm. They even had a decent case full of handguns. Which is a rare thing right now. I Will definitely be returning here.
Have used this place for 2 transfers now. These are my go to guys. When I think pawn shops and sometimes even gun shops, I don't think of positive vibes. This place, despite the fact it's in somewhat of a ghetto area, is pleasantly surprising. Staff is cool and helpful and their selection of firearms is a lot better than you'd assume by looking in from the outside. Their current rate on private transfers is $25 + $10 Oregon BGC so $35 total. Both times I've done transfers (both as seller) we've been in and out in under half hour. Some have mentioned it's somewhat of a drive from the freeway. I'd say it's far from 84 but not too far from the 205.

Maybe I'm biased since I live 5 minutes away, but Peter and his crew have always been friendly and helpful to me. Even when my broke self only comes in to fondle guns I can't afford. I always owe them money, whether I have one on layaway or I pawn a gun to buy another gun. I'll keep doing all my sell transfers here and keep giving them my business.
A little way off the freeways (access), but would be convenient if you lived in the area
Arranged to meet a seller from Vancouver late last week at another pawn shop in NE Portland. After arriving when they opened, we learned there was a problem with their FFL and they couldn't do any transfers at that time, so the seller suggested we head over to Money Market (it was a bit further out of the way for us both). Glad we did. Quick, efficient transfer, and as others noted, a pretty decent selection of guns for a pawn shop. Cost at $30 is fair compared to what some places charge, albeit a bit higher than my typical go to spots on the southwest side of the Portland Metro.
The staff is friendly and bargains can be found. Take a look at their used rifles, shot guns and pistols selection. Yes, I've bought firearms from them in the past. Who knows......you might have just found a new pawn shop destination when you're hunting for firearms in the Portland, OR area. They'll also help you, when you need an FFL to do that private transfer. BTW, they also carry some new firearms too.
This is by no means a full-service gun shop. This is not a place to get your questions answered. But for a pawn shop it is great as a place for finding a used rifle, pistol, or shotgun. They also have new stuff! I think they'll order new guns as well as accept deliveries from online sellers.
Transfers are only $25 and they always seem to be available.
I've decided that this is going to be my go-to FFL for out of state transfers. I placed 2 orders with different retailers and my experience receiving them with Money Market were fantastic.
The first order was with a retailer who didn't have MM's FFL on file. So after placing the order, I emailed MM with my order info to have them send their FFL. This was about 4:30 in the afternoon. I wake up the next morning to a reply that they'd send their license info. Two days later, I go in to pick up a new Beretta APX. The owner (I'm guessing he's the owner), isn't 100% up to date on all the latest tech. I ordered a Wolf Grey frame for the APX at the same time. When he saw the frame, he asked if I'd ordered 2 guns. I explained that it's interchangeable and that the frame isn't serialized. He, very nicely, asked if I minded that he check. I didn't blame him, if he gets something wrong, it's his FFL on the line. But even with that, my start-to-finish time was about 10 minutes. My second order was even better. They were already on file with the retailer, so no extra effort was needed on my part. I had an XD(M) and an LCP II sent there. In and out, I'd say it took him 5 minutes to process the paperwork and background check.
They're really friendly. Well, about as friendly as anyone can be when you're in the store for less than 10 minutes at a time. They charge $20 per gun plus $10 for the BGC. For one gun, the price is pretty typical at $30. If you're ordering 2 or more, you can probably find a better price if you're willing to shop around a bit. But given my experience with them so far, I don't feel all that compelled to shop around.
If you want to look over the inventory they have, find a time to go when it's not busy. The glass case is packed so full with handguns that you're literally looking at the tops of slides. If you know your stuff, you can figure out what's what. But they're packed in so tight, you can't make out most of the price tags. From what I was able to see, everything seemed to be tagged at full MSRP. So you'll probably need to try haggling a little if you want any discounting.
