    I'm thinking of ordering online, but have never done so before. The FFL fee from the seller is already $25 and the rifle is $370. How much should I pay to have a rifle shipped 700 miles?

    When I sell a rifle on Gunbroker, I usually charge $25 for UPS or $35 for USPS. My actual shipping costs are about $2-$5 less than I charge. Outer shipping box, tape, padding and a long drive into the nearest town eat away that $2 pretty quick.

    $25-35 depending on who is shipping and extras

    I just received a M1 Garand from CMP. The FedEx overnight shipping was $25.
