If I were to buy a C&R bolt action rifle from a store, such as a Mosin, would I have to pay the $25 for DROS? And does the 10 day waiting period still come into effect?

Or can I just pay cash and walk out with it?

Specifically talking about Big 5. I know someone who is thinking of buying one, but it might be cheaper to guy it off of someone if he has to pay the DROS ect.

if you buy a C&R from a FFL. you will have the pay the DROS and wait the 10 (11 in big 5's case) days.

and also not sure about this... but potential tax on the big 5 purchase (not too sure.... never bought a c&r from big5 only a 10/22

yes, buying from an FFL involves you $25 DROSing it, and waiting 10-days for pickuup, unless you have a C&R FFL and a COE.

All right, thanks for the replies. That is crazy, something like 20% of the price of the rifle just for fees! :eek:

More than 30% if you count tax. Just don't think about it that way... haha.

Get your C&R license and you can get the effing things shipped to your door for under 100 bucks! It's a rush, especially in this state. :)

Agreed!!! And the discounts you get at places like Brownell's, MidwayUSA, and Numrich pay for the $10/yr FFL fee many times over...:D

i think they end up costing more than 10$ a year after you spend many dollars buying more C&R firearms.

Why not buy one from a fellow Calgunner? Save the tax, no DROS....

+1. I buy *everything* from fellow CG'ers whenever I can, and I've had nothing but positive experiences thus far. I can't say the same for gun shops.
