$35 + 10%
Cost + $10
- My standard transfer fee is
$30 per firearm. I also offer
multiple-transfer discounts for buyers
receiving more than one firearm when I
can legally combine these transactions.
- I charge flat rates when
ordering firearms. The rate is $35 per
item for each $1,000 segment of the
wholesale price. For example, a $500
wholesale pistol would be $535 + tax at
retail, and an $1,100 wholesale rifle
would be $1,170 + tax at retail.
Ammunition, parts, and accessories will
be marked up 15% over wholesale.
- I am happy to offer
consignment sales. Items typically sell
on auction at GunBroker. My base fee for
the service is $35, but if an item sells
for significantly higher than the
starting price, I will take a 10% share
of this “windfall” after all auction
fees and other expenses have been
accounted for. The specific pricing
model on consignments is the seller’s
prerogative. I recommend starting high
and gradually reducing, which means my
base fee is usually all that will apply.
- Sales taxes apply to all
commercial sales but exclude transfer
fees, private-party transactions, and
certain other fees. However, many
out-of-state sellers now report and
collect taxes on their sales into
Washington. Sometimes, transactions that
should be exempt will be taxed as a
result. I have no control over this.
- Legally, anyone can ship a
firearm to a Federal Firearms License
holder anywhere in the United States.
Some FFLs will only accept firearms from
other FFLs, but this is not required.
USPS prohibits handguns from
non-FFLs, and UPS and FedEx require
these to ship overnight, which can be
expensive. Upon request, I will provide
FFL-to-FFL shipping at cost plus $10 per
- The state currently assesses
an $18 fee on every semi-automatic rifle
sold or transferred to offset the
expense of its “enhanced”
background-check program. This fee is
set to apply to all firearms by 2024,
but it will transition to a
per-transaction fee at that time.
