    There's always GunBroker and GunsAmerica, but you'll generally be best served searching for a local (in-state) trading forum where you can negotiate a face to face transaction.

    Check out other auction sites. I've had good luck on Cowan's.

    Some may have categories available during different parts of the year.

    Just remember- when buying remotely- 1. Check for return policy. On Auction Arms, you have a 3 day no-firing inspection period- you can return gun for any reason. 2. When figuring how much it will cost, be sure to add shipping and FFL transfer fees. Am seeing dealers in SOME parts of the country charging $100-$150 for a transfer- we have folks here that charge $10-$20. 3, On auction sites, learn how to read feedback numbers on sellers. If a seller has several hundred positives, the odds of your having good results in buying from them is pretty good. 4. Best deal- get your 03 C&R FFL and you can buy directly from wholesalers. Good prices, no FFL fees (on C&R firearms)

    Those with the $150 transfer fee help us others.

    I would rather transfer 8 for $20 than 0 for $150.

    I've had very good experience with armslist.com. There are listings for each state. I only browse using the private seller option. Good luck.

    Armslist is pretty good. They do a very good job keeping scams off the site.

    My fav local dealer only charges $25 for up to 3 transfers. All i know so far... On average dealers charge $25-35 on regular transfers and $50 for class 3 transfers.
