I'd ask the gunsmith because it depends on local/state laws.

Dave.

No, ask S&W.  The local gunshop wants $75 just to send YOUR pistol to S&W.

The local gunshops are not making enough money selling .22 LR for $70 per brick

Sorry I should have been more clear, I meant he should ask the gunsmith he was sending it to.  He said he was sending it off to Smith which I took mean a gunsmith not S&W.

As Dave said, ask the smith you're sending your pistol to.  I prefer that my customers use UPS because I know my driver.  The FedEx driver seems to change at least once a week.  Of course the other option is take it to your local FFL who can them ship the pistol for you.

It is always a good idea to check with the individual/ company who will receive the gun. Luckily, living in a free state, like you do, you can legally ship it to any licensed gunsmith or manufacturer. You as an individual, must use UPS or FedEx to ship a handgun. A dealer can ship a handgun to another licensed dealer/manufacturer using the United States Postal Service (USPS). If you have a good relationship with your local gun dealer, you might check with him about shipping the handgun for you. It might save you a lot of money because shipping via the USPS is considerably less expensive than either UPS or FedEx. If you are shipping it to Smith & Wesson, the good news is that sometimes they will send you a shipping label and pay both ways for the shipping.

Question for FFL holders: I have been using a FFL holder for transferring new to me guns,... to me. He has not done any shipping out of guns to say, a gunsmith. My question is, if I have him do the shipping, does a back ground check (and waiting period) occur when the gun returns, even though it was my gun to begin with? What all is involved on the FFL side for the gun being shipped in for work, vs, a new gun being transferred causing a background check and waiting period. The gun in question would be going to Clark for a "re-freshening" Thanks

Local shop logs gun in from you.  Then ships gun to another FFL for work to be done.  Work is completed and gun is shipped back to your FFL who notifies you of return and you go pick up gun.  He just logs it back out of his books to you, no 4473 is required.

KC,

The local shop ,will not ship a pistol unless it has been registered to me.  Which means I have to go to all the paperwork and cost to get the proper registration.

It does not sound right to me.

Jerry, have you done a 4473 for this weapon? Almost sounds like the shop doesn't want to ship for you.
What registration are they talking about?

Jerry lives in Calif.  The dealer wants to make sure that the gun has been registered with the CA DOJ.

I've got nothing for that. I know CA has additional requirements.

K.C.,

It may need to be looked up in BATF's guide to state laws regarding California, especially with all the ins and outs of what is legal there, and what can be "imported" there (approved pistols, etc.).

Under most conditions that I am aware of, an individual can ship directly to an FFL, or direct to a U.S. factory for repair/gunsmith work, without an intermediary FFL.  Once work has been accomplished and assuming it is the same serialized firearm, it is returned directly to the original owner.  If you do not have a Firearms Safety Certificate, there is no official "Dealerships Record of Sale", or you have not filed a "Firearms Owner Report," (registration by any other name), this may cause problems either with the local FFL, or the return from the repair shop FFL holder. I and am not up to date on all of the CA requirements since I decided it was too cumbersome to do so.   

Could these be the factors involved here?  (Please lets keep this on his topic, not politics)

Jerry, if you do not have a DROS,  Dealers Record of Sale, or have not sent in your Firearms Ownership Report for firearms purchased and owned by you that you obtained prior to the transfer changes, you probably should investigate doing so.

-Ron
