Anyone know how this works? I know it goes through FFL's AKA dealers but what on average do they charge? Are there any more reputible FFL holders on here that aren't trying to make $50.00 to transfer.
Does the gun get registered for the MAN? Is it usually worth it after shipping, fees etc. I wanted to get a couple SxS's but didn't want to have the seller wait on me while I find a dealer etc. Any ideas and pointers would be great!

Thanks guys!

Yes

Find a FFL you like. Some charge $10+ the background fee of $10, so $20 total on the low end and the sky is the limit on the high end.

There is no registration in Oregon, but you do go thru a background check if that is what you call the MAN.......

It's can be cheaper if you know what you are doing or can cost more than just buying from a high volume FFL here in Oregon........if you can do math you can determine this :s0155:

Gunbroker is good to use and only buy from folks that have sold 50+ things and have a perfect rating........

Thanks Civil! I don't mind BG checks... I just figured when the stores call it and read off the SN of the guns I buy they're keying it into the system i.e. registration. Guess I need to find a good local FFL. Have a great evening!

If you're around Salem you can hit me up, I run $25 for the transfer, 10 for BG check, 15 for my time.

Sounds good! It's about an hour drive but worth it if I can get the seller to work a little on the price. I'm probably going to buy a couple handguns too. Once I get my settlement money, not much but enough to feed my addiction of boomsticks. :) I will be sure to contact you way ahead of time I even bid. Thanks for the offer! Dan

Thanks! Salem may be a little closer for me but I'll check your list and see what you got. May be easier to just drive up and do some local shopping.

I would also recommend throwing out a line to local FFL's to find the gun you want, if they can sell it to you locally you have cut out one middleman which may save some money also.

It does not matter on who you buy it from. When you go through the FFL it will register to the man no matter what. Only way to pick up a gun and not have the man find out is to do a FTF transfer. I have bought a few guns from on line dealers and have not had any issues doing the transfer through local FFLs. Good luck with your purchase:s0155:

You want to watch out for shipping charges when shopping on line.
Some of those dealers try to make a few extra bucks on there sales.

If you have a C&R License - you can purchase firearms on online auctions if they fit the requirements for a Curios & Relics firearm.

It is very easy to get a C&R FFL - cost $30 - works great - but the firearm must fit the category for a Curio and Relic.
 
I've only bid on guns guns that I can pick up locally (won 3 so far) that way I can deal with any discrepancy face to face. This also saves on a local transfer fee and shipping. I've seen too many ads where the product is not what is described and is obvious from the pictures or description, I'd hate to buy something and then have it show up with a hidden (in the ad) defect. Let us know how it works out.
