    For those of you who have sold pistols/revolvers online.....................

    ..............how much, on average, does it cost to legally ship a pistol, private individual to valid FFL dealer, interstate?

    The laws on this are a bit confusing. I want to put some pistols up for sale, but I don't want to have to pass on to a buyer a $100+ overnight shipping charge!

    Never sold one on line but have sent a couple back to factory for repair. I have found is easier to let my LGS ship for me. He gets special rate and most is by Fed Ex. Not sure on shipping cost as if he sends back to factory, shipping is on manufacturer.

    I agree with other members above. Use a LGS to ship. In fact some receiving FFLs will not accept a shipment from an individual and you'll have to use an FFL holder on your end anyway.

    Yes, $30 is a common charge for shipping.

    I first bought on line in 2013; on this forum as a matter of fact. I pay btw $20 and $35 dollars shipping to the FFL. My FFL charges me $15 for the transfer fee. Every now and then I'll get free shipping especially on gunbroker if you use the "Buy now" option.

    That first online purchase in 2013? A K-38 that shipped in 1951.

    All the FFL's in my area charge $40 for a transfer.

    Traded a gun with someone on another forum, and found they all charge $70 to ship a revolver.
