    I think that means it has to be shipped to a dealer to do the transfer.

    I can't believe than would be the customer cost, seems wayyyyy too cheap.

    Man that is cheap and there ammo is pretty cheap too. There has got to be some kind of stipulation.

    If you look under rifles they have several which require only C&R licences, and Finnish Mosin Nagants which require no FFL at all.

    They're just telling you which sort of licence is required for that particular firearm. Have your transfer dealer send them a copy of his FFL, they'll ship him the gun no problem... and they don't care who pays for it.

    Most of their weapons are police tradins or milsurp... but not all.

    Those should be the customer costs with a FFL required to do the transfer. If they aren't specified as NIB then they are probably used.

    They mean seem cheap, but they are only a few hundred less than what you could buy them for new. About the same price as used ones. I would be tempted to look further into this if I had saw a Prancing pony in there somewhere.

    You can tell I am not a 1911 guy. I look at the cost and think "wow, that is kind of expensive for a handgun but those glock 23 tradeins look great!"

    I keep telling myself that I am going to pick up a springfield milspec one of these days, but it never happens.

    Which one is so ostensibly cheap?

    I'm so used to looking at wholesale that they all look pricey. :)

    the Springer and Kimbers's seem to be about $100 cheaper than locally found around here. Maybe more.

    I believe it's just like any other wholesale distributor.
    I see Glocks, Kimbers, Springers on the site............quite possible PD oder cancellations, or trade-in guns.............the rest.. Walthers, H&K P9s (which you guys should snap up as they're HIGHLY desirable, and great carry guns, seem to be surplus guns........... from PDs overseas..
