I tried to search this but got nothing. Who do you guys use to ship C&R riffles and about how much is it going to cost to ship a couple of riffles within the state?
TIA

^^Thanks for the quick reply. Could you let me know who you used I'm getting two mausers and would rather not drive 4/12 hours each way if I didn't have to.

Weight them in the packaging, go here: http://www.usps.com/ and click "Calculate Postage"

I prefer using UPS. Cost will be <$20 with insurance for each (if shipped separately). I'd imagine if they shipped together, you'd see cost savings.

All I have here is USPS and I've never had a problem.
I ship priority + adult signature required + delivery confirmation + insurance. All the way to Vermont cost me less than $30.

I use USPS. It's usually $10-$15. I use 'parcel post' though (yeah I'm cheap like that) but I've never had a problem.

Thanks for all of the responses I'm gonna see if the seller is willing to ship it'd be a whole lot less of a hassle on both of us if that'd work out

USPS has worked well for me. Also for brass and bullets etc.

Were you shipping from a real UPS shipping counter or were you shipping from a "The UPS Store" location?

Ship all the time using USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation.
Never had a problem. If it's a high value rifle, I will also get the insurance.

UPS or USPS.. just make sure you don't write "gun" or "mauser"

Stay away from UPS. I had all kinds of trouble with the last two rifles sent to me via UPS.

I had two bad UPS experiences as well. One rifle arrived with the bolt sticking out of the box. The other one had the front sight and several inches of barrel poking out the end. Dude left it leaned up against the stone wall in front of my house...right along the street. It was even sent "adult signature required".
