What is a Dealer Transfer Fee?

Conducting firearm transfers involves work on the dealer’s part, including filling out paperwork and doing a background check, FFL dealers typically charge a small fee to conduct firearm transfers. In most parts of the country the transfer fee is around $25 dollars, but the amount of the fee is set by the dealer and is not standardized. You may want to contact a dealer in advance to find out their transfer fee. Some states, like California, have additional fees or requirements that the end recipient will need to be aware of. They should check with their receiving dealer for additional requirements.
