    I'm currently in the process of applying for my FFL 03 so I just wanted to include some information and links I have found during my research to obtain this license.

    Here's a few links to help explain the process..

    Getting your C&R FFL

    Find the necessary ATF forms here:

    ATF Online - Forms - ATF F 5310.16 Instructions

    To get them mailed to you: Distribution Center Order Form

    Edited to include updated links -Thanks to vaderdaman for the updated info.

    It's the best $30.00 you'll ever spend! ;)

    I'm sure it will be, I finally got a house so I figured the next best thing would be the C&R to go with it! :)

    had mine for over a year now, came quick too. I think under a month after mailing it. Saved me bunches in FFL fees already

    Wait, how does a C & R help you save from FFL fee's? I've seen websites put C & R eligible on their site, does this mean they can ship it direct to you without an FFL?

    If the firearm is a C&R and you have a C&R FFL then yes it will be shipped directly to you.

    And if you send it into folks like MidwayUSA or Brownells you can get discounts on stuff you buy from them as well...parts and such...

    How does that work with Midway? I sent them a copy nearly a year ago but never got any sort of acknowledgement. Not sure how you are supposed to see the discount on their site. Maybe I will have to send it to them again I guess.

    The basic rule is anything that is 50 year or older. 1959 would be the cut-off right now. Newer guns like the Makarov's, Tokarev's, etc are exempt as Curios.
    The C&R section on GunBroker is a good place to browse.
