    TWS Antiques Transfer Fee $25

    I have used these people in the past. They are great to work with and their transfer fee is good. TWS Antiques in Oaklawn, IL 60453 Phone 847-772-9654.

    Another one is Thin Bue Line in Wood Dale, IL 60191.

    One place that I have looked in the past for dealers is on they have a good dealer selection also.

    Ok so I found a new FFL dealer for my most recent purchase (an S&W M&P 15 Sport!). He charges $20 for the transfer and $2 for the background check (so total cost is $22). He's very responsive and professional. Here's the info:

    I done a number of purchases/sales/transfers with John (Scott). He's a retired LEO and a very nice guy. I recommend him.

    I just bought two pistols from a dealer on GB.
    Just type your zip in the space and several will pop up on the page withing your area, with phone #, adress, what they charge, etc, etc.
    Listing had an FFL 7-8 mi. from me, charging $10 per transfer.
    Can't do better than that.

    A good one is Greg Carriglio in Oak Lawn. He charges $25.00. I'm not going to post his phone number or email address but shoot me a PM and I'll give you the information.
