Greater Philly Bucks,Montco,Ches,Dela. etc. FFL transfers,best fees,best places ...

First of all let me tell you that I believe we should have stickies for FFL transfer fees and addresses etc for different areas. Hello mods .

I'm about to buy some guns online and was looking for an FFL today that still had sane transfer fees. I used to do my transfers at Donn's and they used to charge me $20, everything included. Donn's apparently is history now and I couldn't find the "new" store on 309 for the life of me. They say it's Lenn's or something now but I couldn't see it even after driving almost an hour on both sides of the 309. There is no phone number or anything for the new store on the i-net, either.

Here is what I could get today. All prices are current as of 01.03.2005


Let me begin with the ones that raised my blood pressure a bit:

1. Classic Pistol $35
2. Tanner's Sport Center $40
3. E F Precision ( They are listed as Transfer FFL on AK-47 net but they didn't have an idea about the whole "gun thing" when I called them today ;Q )
4. Greg L. Johnston Ent. (I got fax signal when I tried their "phone no" all day today)
5. Mike & Kates Sport Shoppe $35

Somebody please give me a few names that charge you around $15-$20 for transfers. I personally believe that it's what they should charge us for 2 minutes of paperwork (maximum).

Feel free to list your favorite FFLs and their fees. Thanks.

And these are the UNCONFIRMED ones. Again, the fees and any other info ARE NOT CONFIRMED. Call them before making any plans to use them for your transfers. I've gathered their names and fees etc. by searching gunbroker's, shotgun news', firing line's and a few other sites' FFL lists.

I'm hoping that you would come up with good info that would help me to find my next "regular transfer FFL".

Thanks

My last dealing with Donn's left a bad taste in my mouth and I will not deal with them again. That was about a year ago. I don't have the phone number with me, but I'll check when I get home. Here are a couple I found a few months ago, but I haven't delt with any of them.

Lowe's Certified Guns LLC
521 W Butler Ave
Chalfont, PA 18914
phone: 215-822-1458
fax: 215-822-1458
First Transfer is free. Additional transfers $30.00 total inc tax and
background check.

I am a holder of a FFL who is starting a home based business buying and
selling handguns online. Eventually I intend to open a gunshop locally. I
keep a small inventory of handguns which are locked in my safe at all times.
I will be happy to handle transfers for local people. Hours are by
appointment only. Thank You.
call first
Transfer fee: $30.00

By the way, the Classic Pistol transfer fee you show is for in state transfers. They quoted me something like $50 for an out of state transfer. Good luck finding anything in our area under $30. I haven't yet. If you do please post it.

Jeep,
thanks for the input. I'm so ticked by these prices that I'm seriously considering getting the FFL myself next year or so. I'm sure the money I would save by not paying for my own transfers and a few of transfers for other people on the side would pay for the expenses.

BTW, how is "the first transfer free" at LOWE's ? How does it work?

BTT, I think somebody said in his post that Rich Barlow of Choice Firearms in Levittown charged $20.

Just got off the phone with him and he says he charges $31.50 not $20 ;Q .

If still interested ...

Choice Firearms
Rich Barlow
(215) 245-7211,
212 Dogwood Dr

$31.50 (has to be shipped to him through FFL)

I never investigated the Lowes deal. It may be a free transfer if you buy through them, but I don't really know. Might be worth a call. Is it possible to get an FFL without having a shop or business? If you do it, post your info on this board. I would definitely prefer to deal with a fellow GT'r than my local shops.

Yeah, I know. I learned the hard way. I hope he doesn't rely on me as a repeat customer.

I deal with Leonard's Sporting Goods on Lansdowne Ave in Upper Darby. They charge 35 bucks but with the price of gasoline, it sure beats driving to one of the less expensive shops.

better bullets (king shooters supply) in KOP is $25 for the first and I think $13 or $15 for additional transfers. I've always had great service going through them.

I think Jim charges $50 for an out-of-state gun.
But they did sell a couple pieces for me, no comission.

I took a gun from one Layton Fireng today. I got his name off gunsamerica.com. His shop is low-key. Not a scrap of inventory.

$25
Just west of West Chester, on Rt. 3

And the seller was from Oregon.

Dell's Firearm Specialist

I just stopped in Dell's today. His price for a transfer is $30-complete. He also offers discounts for multiple transfers within the same month-just ask. All in all a much better attitude than Donns. Tim will help in any way he can. Very interesting collection of Nazi swords and daggers in the cases.
