Hello All,

What can an FFL dealer legally charge when using them to transfer a rifle or firearm into the state of CA? I'm getting mixed pricing from different dealers. Including DROS fees.

First of all, they better not be charging different amounts for DROS fees.

But for a non PPT, I think they can charge whatever they want. It seems to vary from 45-100 dollars or so.

For a FFL to FFL transfer? Use of license fee?

Anything they want.

PPT- Maximum of 35 dollars, 10 for each gun after the first
Out of state FFL transfer- 25 DROS fee plus whatever they want. 65-70 is the norm. My dealer will do 3 guns for 65 and each 3 after if another 20...

Just so folks dont get worked up, the FFL (in the case of handguns) can charge a few bucks more per the DOJ. Dont ask me to find the law.

I think its a storage fee or prcessing fee they can charge. Any FFL want to back this up?
