Thread: RFD Receive fee

    RFD Receive fee

    What's the going rate for receiving a rifle at a local dealer?

    Thanks Mike

    From searching the forum I was expecting about 25, plus a little, as those refs were 2-3 years ago.

    My local one wants 45, I thought that was a bit steep.

    Ask around at locaish RFD's as I am fairly sure you will not get it done around here for less that 25 and probably more. The Police keep adding more and more burdens paperwork wise onto RFD's so it takes them longer to do. Watched a RFD do a transfer recently and it took a fair while.

    Try Gordon Smith at Colpy. Not far from you. I think I was 15 when he got a rifle for me.

    My local is 15 but another place near by doesn't charge anything if I buy something at the same time.

    Spoke to Colin at Grampian Guns - 20 for locals, and can be in the evening by arrangement.

    On the contrary if the receiving dealer is carrying out the process as it should be done there is less paperwork involved so any fee if charged should be minimal.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    True, last one I received it was still in the box unopened. I opened and checked it and the RFD simply filled in his ledger and wrote on my cert. Took about 10 mins.
