What are you guys paying for NFA transfers?

General silencer discussion. If you want to talk about a specific silenced rifle or pistol, it is best to do that in the rifle or pistol section for that brand.

All NFA laws apply.

Will the ATF allow a "business" to be transfers only? :mrgreen:
Why not stock a bunch of items and be the hometown silencer shop and do transfers? Stock the good stuff deep and you will have to beat customs away.
Nah,

I'm just going to start a town in the middle of nowheresville, TX/MT/UT/whatever and declare myself sheriff.

With all this being said, anyone know of a dealer in Northern Virginia that is inexpensively priced? I want to buy one of those overrun Poseidon cans but I'm not going to pay an arm & leg for a transfer!

$45... anything over 100 seems excessive.

Order through them to0 (Spectre 2 in process), but their stock of transferable machineguns and SBR/Ss is woefully inadequate.

Are your buying from dealer inventory ? If so that would be why.

My local guy is $50 for NFA and $20 for title 1. No fees if from his inventory of course. Sadly he doesn't maintain a very large inventory.

I pay $50. My dealer offers to do the forms for me but I do them myself since I'm more experienced than he is (he's a range buddy who had an FFL, I'm the one who convinced him to get his SOT). Another friend used to have his SOT and did free transfers for me, but he let his license lapse during the recession. I have paid up to $100.

Yes but I have bought a few guns special order and never been charged to do so. Other then they want partial down payment.

They are making money even if they are special ordering. If you bought something off gun broker or silencer shop willing to bet there will be a transfer fee.

i don't buy from gun broker. One of the nice things about living in houston and having a gun show every few weekends and plenty of gun shops around town.

I have NEVER paid these fee's buying dealer inventory or not!!!! Not one time. No dealers in my area charge this at all. I ran into a guy that tried the hourly charge thing he quickly lost his business and moved. I would never pay a fee and if they ask I would end the sale and walk. I did have a dealer that after I purchased the item charged me 10$ a day till the transfer went thru and he is no longer around and I still got my item. :) But I am surprised the local law enforcement has not started charging for the paper work sign fee.

So you buy a silencer from an out of state dealer and have it transferred to your local dealer, and the local dealer provides transfer service for ZERO cost?

$20 for non-NFA transfers in or out,
$50 for incoming NFA transfers, never done an outgoing one but probably the same fee,
$0 for in-stock NFA purchases,
Plus free snacks, beverages and artwork.

:D

Really most of my out of state transfers are free as part of the fact I'm probably paying to much anyway or the dealer is already making huge profit. I.E. Machine guns . I have never paid for a transfer period at least in a up front manner.

But it seems allot are on here are proud they are all most like bragging about it and some dealers are also kinda bragging about it . It just tell me who to deal with and not.

Have you done any out-of-state transfers where you didn't order the item through the dealer who did the transfer? For example, you ordered a silencer directly from silencershop.com to ship to your local dealer, who then did the transfer? Or bought an MG from an out-of-state dealer, who shipped it to your local dealer to do the transfer? In those cases, your local dealer doesn't make anything at all unless he charges you a fee for the transfer. That's what's being discussed here as "transfer fees". It's assumed that you wouldn't pay an additional fee on something you bought out of his inventory, or that he ordered for you.

I have one can pending for which the SOT isn't charging any fee, and two more for which the SOT (different SOT) is charging $75 ea. I'm not proud, as such, of paying the fee, but I don't have any problem paying someone for doing a service for me either.

Just talked to my preferred FFL today regular transfers are $20 and NFA are $40. They had no problem at all with buying elsewhere but said I could tell them what I want and they would try to get a better price. After looking at this thread I never realized I had it so good.

100 for NFA is what all 5 locations around me charge.
Id rather drive 3 hrs to buy one in stock then to have it sit in NFA jail for another 3 months.
So I end up paying the extra hundred in gas but with less wait time lol.
