    Current RFD firearm transfer costs

    With all the upheaval with carriers, anyone have current view of firearm delivery challenges and costs? All normalised yet?

    I never make the same mistake twice.

    I make it five or six times.

    Just to be sure.

    I bought a Beretta O/U from SGC a few months back and I think that worked out at a tenner for the carriage and about 25 for the RFD, so ~35 all in.

    Thanks stubear - I think I was confusicating myself with the problems with shipping ammo about.

    Just contacted the sending RFD and it seems there is no major hassle with posting firearms.

    It depends on your RFD. I only have experience of receiving firearms bought on the mainland, and transferred to Northern Ireland. On the first occasion, the RFD that received it charged 30, but on the second occasion, RFD I now use, received it free of charge. The postage costs for both were similar though.

    Rfd closest to me charges 50 just to accept it and put it through his books
