    Defective Firearm, Online Purchase - How to Handle Transfer?

    Got shipped an obviously poorly made AR receiver. I didn't want the thing immediately upon inspection. My FFL insisted I had to pay for a transfer fee whether I took it or not, Is this normal? Or should I have refused delivery and made the shipper call tag it back from my FFL? The FFL stated he essentially had to do a "transfer" either way since he had possession. Technically this is probably right I guess, but would most charge for it, is there even any paperwork in this case?

    BTW, I went ahead and took possession so I can deal directly with the seller and/or manufacturer since I had to pay either way. Not sure if that was smart or not.

    Send it back to the folks that made it for repairs/replacement. That way, once it is fixed they can ship it directly to you. No FFL needed.

    You might want to give a call to the manufacturer and get things straight with them before shipping.

    Agreed.

    And yes, your dealer should collect the transfer fee. Most of the work is already done, and its no fault of his that you got shipped the faulty product.
