    I am thinking about sending my complete rifle off for a water printing camo job- where they dip the whole rifle in a tand that has a film floating on the surface. Anyway, one place said I don't have to have a FFL ship it to them and they don't need to have a FFL either to "paint" it or to ship it back directly to me.

    One FFL guy I have used said that is wrong. I'm not transfering it, and it is not going to a licensed gunsmith?!?! Does anyone have the right answer here?


    Thanks,

    If neither party is licensed (FFL), you may ship within your own state. If you are not licensed (FFL) you may ship to a licensee (FFL) in any state. For a handgun you must use a "common carrier" as handguns cannot be mailed via the United States Postal Service.

    Yes they need an FFL for receiving firearms for re-finishing.
