    Go through Fort Moe. Straight shooter. Best price. I've employed his services several times in last six months. Excellent.

    Thanks for the input guys, I had a transfer recently that I wished there was a page like this for me to reference, so figured it was a good idea to post all in one place. (Thanks for the suggestion coctailer)

    This list is a living thing, so pricing may change, mainly just for reference.

    Keep em comin guys!

    Yup, Moe is where it's at! I was picking up a new revolver when kenr74 was there. He answered all this NFA rookie's questions too.

    Scott Hilmoe(Fort Moe) is my favorite in Oregon by far! I'd rather pay him than anyone else as he makes the transaction easy and painless, plus, he's a really nice guy who genuinely loves guns, and cars too!

    I mainly just wanted to start this thread to give people a resource if they needed to do a transfer and didnt know who charged what. But its definately also helpful to know about peoples experiences at these locations with transfers, so keep them coming.

    Also, if anyone finds new shops/people with info on their transfer pricing, post in here or shoot me a pm and Ill add them to the list. Thanks, --tree

    I once asked them about a gun they had listed on Auction arms. It was the price of the gun, +$50 (for what? a gun they have in the store and don't have to transfer?) and THEN the $10 background check. Hmmmm...

    It may have a gun that was on consignment, or maybe one of the people that worked at the stores private gun. Dont know....NW Armory has always been awesome for me. Wish they were a little closer to me.

    No, that doesn't make any sense. If I had a FFL and had them ship it to me, there would have been shipping fees for less than that $50, no background check fee, and the purchase price would have been solid. Basically it was the difference between selling it to a dealer compared to a retail customer. I've bought at least two guns from them in the past (neither one a cheap purchase), and would consider buying from them again, even on an auction but I have to consider the total cost of the firearm. I've stopped a few times in the past year to look. I don't waste their time with BS questions, just haven't seen anything that lit my fire. If I was to use them for a transfer, I think I'd want their "service" charge in writing. That's all I'm suggesting.

    we are 35.00 plus 10.00 back ground but 99% of the time i can get the gun for you for way less considering your paying shipping plus transfer fee plus if your paying credit card theres a fee for that ,i try to order in bulk so theres very little shipping per gun .www.willamettevalleyfirearms.com or call at 503-846-1383 let us help you shoot for less!!!

    Help me out here.

    I have purchased firearms from Gun Broker and other various places:

    I pay the cost of a firearm

    Then a Shipping fee

    Then it is shipped to the FFL in the info that was provided

    When it arrives at their place, I pick it up and pay 10.00 for background check

    Sometimes they charge me a fee between 10 to 15 dollars, for doing this (If it is a place that i give a lot of business to, sometimes they void the fee)

    WOULD THE LAST STATEMENT BE CONSIDED THE TRANSFER FEE?

    If it is, why would someone pay 50.00?
