    UPS: Shipping Firearms

    UPS standard insurance is $100 unless you add more, pay more for it. You must send it adult signature required, per UPS rules. My guess shipping will be about $16 ground; adult signature req adds about $5.

    USPS. For Fedex or UPS you will have to go to the main hub to ship.

    Unless you have an FFL, shipping via USPS is not allowed.

    I use who ever my employer has a contract with... Last set of long guns (2 Winchester 94's) I shipped 2nd air cost $35 to MN with FedEx with the discount! I don't recall the weigh, but it was the rifles, original boxes and then a heavy duty cardboard wrap around boxed and extra padding. I think the list price would have about $150 I have used both FedEx and UPS and the service and price has been equal. Even though long guns can be shipped by USPS their track record with every day package leaves a lot to be desired.

    I stand corrected. A non-licensee may ship a long gun to an FFL via USPS...the prohibition I was referring to was in regard to handguns.

    Here are the USPS firearm shipping regulations:

    Both service suck.

    But if you pack it right, should be no problem.

    If you go online, you can find out cost of shipping or call them.

    Not according to their website,

    UPS: Shipping Firearms

    Firearms (including handguns) may be shipped only through a UPS Scheduled Pickup Account (specifically, Daily Pickup, Daily On-Route Pickup, UPS Smart Pickup®, and Day-Specific Pickup), or through a UPS Customer Center (counters at UPS operational facilities). Note: Firearms (including handguns) are not accepted for shipment via, UPS Drop Boxes, UPS On-Call PickupSM, or at locations of The UPS Store® or any third party retailer.

    I shipped a 522 back to Sig using USPS. They made me open the box and prove the weapon was not capable of firing. Showed them the bolt was out. Luckily another guy behind the counter was a gun guy. My original counter person was just going to turn me away.

    I have used USPS and UPS a lot of times with zero hassle. I have heard a lot of horror stories about fedex.

    I only use UPS, but I am probably a bit biased since I have worked there for 25 years.
