So, I just got my C&R license today, and I'd like to start signing up for the available discount places.

So, the dealers I'm aware which offer discounts:

MidwayUSA.com - variable discount, 25%ish on avg, even better on some AR parts in particular, fewer things without discount than Brownells. When they receive your C&R, they look it over and then you get a "Dealer login" button under your "my account" link.

Brownells.com - 25%ish on average, variable of course

Tapco.com - you fax them your C&R, which adds you to their dealer list. They'll start mailing you dealer catalogues with different prices, and you phone in your order - no online ordering there for the discount.

Next up - any other companies you guys know of with C&R discounts?

Brownell's wholesale prices aren't that great. You can usually get the products they stock from the original company for much less.

Well, I still maintain the discounts are insane - however, the original prices are definitely cranked up there to begin with. :)

I already had a Midway account and just faxed a copy of my C & R with my account number written on it. Worked just fine. BTW, my C & R was recently about to expire, and I got an email from them asking for a copy of the renewal. Apparently they keep track.

Fax Midway a copy, then follow up with a phone call or email.

Yes they do check the expiration date

Will those companies honor FFL03s? How many will actually sell to someone who is not engaged in a business?

what type of discounts are you talking about? parts/complete rifles? i was wondering because i was thinking about getting my C&R license. i would get it because i want to be a collector of old battle proven rifles. ie. M1 Garand. i noticed that the price is around $550 for the rifle. would i get the rifle for $400? thanks.

Some on-line "retail stores" will give you a discount on the retail/list price on parts. C&R will let you purchase long guns over 50 years old, but not at a discount. Are you lookling at the CMP? No discount because of the C&R.

Lots of plinking rifles, Mosins, Mausers, K31's. Most are reasonably priced with surplus ammo. PM sent

Ok, I heard from Tapco - they officially give 10% off of the regular prices to C&R holders. However, you can't get those prices online; you order through their special dealer catalog that they'll mail you, and place your order on the phone.

MidwayUSA seems to have a bit of a wait to get your C&R attached to your account. I faxed 'em my license two days ago, and the discount hasn't shown up yet.

Brownells, you just enter the C&R license number on their website, but you also need to fax them a copy so they have confirmation.

compare prices before purchasing from tapco. midway's dealer prices on some items are prices waayyy better than the 10% offered.

Yeah, I intend to do plenty of comparison shopping.

I'm also setting up a wiki page for reference on C&R discount places: http://thegunwiki.com/view/Gunwiki/ShoppingReference
