    what are your transfer fees

    Curious as to everyone's transfer fees if you're not making a profit on the firearm, just transferring it to someone from another FFL Dealer.

    $20 in, send is 25/30 plus a gallon round trip
    most are 25 & 50--rather obvious they do not want to do it

    My buds got an FFL and he does mine for N/C for shot guns and long guns, I pay the $13.00 background check for hand guns.
    Most small FFLs around here ( SE Wisconsin) are 25-30 bucks plus the extra $13 for hand guns. The big gun store chains are 40 bucks plus the background check which some mark up +$5.00 for $17.00 extra for hand guns.

    Appreciate the feedback.

    From reading some of the posts am I understanding this correctly...

    In everyone's experience has the check been an additional fee when you purchase the firearm directly from the FFL Dealer?

    Or is this only when the FFL Dealer is not profiting from your purchase and transferring only?

    The fees are for the transfer. If I purchase a firearm from the dealer they don't charge anything for long guns and only $13.00 for NICS ( hand guns) But I saw a couple shops in the Milwaukee area that mark up the NICS $5.00.
    The transfer fees are for Gunbroker,Buds guns, aim,Mitchells Mausers,Gunsamerica......

    so you guys in Wisconsin, there is a mandated fee for background checks???

    as for the original question, I have never purchased a firearm through a dealer on a transfer only basis.

    Yes the DOJ charges $13 for a NICS check. The former gov. wanted to go all Chicago on us and raise the fee to $30. Anything to make gun purchases more of a burden. He never got his way though.

    Transfer fees around here are generally in the 25 dollar range... Larger stores are 30 - 50 dollars.
    The LGS around the corner charges 10 dollars for the average Joe and regular customers (like me) are usually free.
    The only time I've ever paid a background check fee was way back when I got my ccw... Never when purchasing a gun have I been charged an extra fee for the five minute phone call.
