Surely someone local could screw a barrel on the thing. Just a thought.

Only FFL holders can mail handguns. Hopefully Ruger will send you a shipping label for either UPS or FedEx. If they don't, have your local gun shop send it via mail. It should be a lot cheaper than you taking it to a UPS or FedEx hub.


I guess I shouldn't use "mail" in its generic form. Ruger sent me a FedEx shipping label, sent it back last week. Just received an e-mail that it's "with a tech" for assessment.

Heck, I could. Have done a few Smith & Wessons - wait, maybe that was Dan Wesson .... :wink:

I have done a few Smiths, but I want a 6" barrel and figure if Ruger does it for no cost, all the better - I'm in no hurry.

Well, shipped for free and fixed for free. Kind of a PITA that I can't have it held at the FedEx hub instead of delivered to home address, where I'm not at home during the work day. They won't redirect. Basically, I'll have to sit at home and wait for it.

Ruger says FedEx will try 3 deliveries. Question - if I don't sit & wait and they leave a door tag the 1st time, can I then tell FedEx to hang on to it for pick up at their hub?

In Missouri, I can ship a firearm to Ruger, without FFL. Different from a transfer. I bought a well used 1974 BH. .357. It was loose. Accurate, but light primer strikes. Ruger did send me a plain brown box. I shipped it Fed Ex. Then Fed Ex delivered to front door. I signed for it. Pain free. Ruger put new parts in frame. Cost me nothing

Yes, generally if you let them know they will hold it at their facility for pickup. Could you not get a friend, relative, neighbor to wait at your home for delivery?

I have had a few guns shipped to me through FedEx and have had them kept at a hub until I could pick them up.
If you have the tracking number look it up and there should be an option to have it held at a local hub.

If they send a new gun the "great deal" is no longer so great, unless it carries the same serial number. If they send me a gun with a different serial number it will most likely have to go to a CA FFL. And unless I get a deal going through one of my locals that's going to cost me about $125.00 in transfer costs. Still not bad.


Really? $125 in transfer cost? Is this what it takes to buy a new gun too?
