$20 for first 4473 (4 lines on current version, I believe*)
+$5 per additional 4473*

*The form has always stated that additional firearms can be documented on a separate sheet of paper attached to the 4473, but I've never met an FFL that does such. They've always used another fully filled-out 4473.

Other FFLs around here charge $15 (kitchen table) to $50 (retail location).
One of the dirt bag dealers that has major violations in his shop on a daily basis quotes $25 per 4473 over the phone, but charges $35 per firearm once your stuff is in his possession. (He's been reported to LE and the ATF at least a dozen times over the last 4 years. Still no action taken...)

There are a few in my area that will do it for $25. A few at $30. But a lot of them want $50. Some even more.

The ones that charge $50 or more to do a simple friggin transfer, do not get a single penny of my money. For anything. And I will never do any business with them of any kind. They show who they are by their fee, and I don't patronize such places. Screw em.

Most of the kitchen table FFL's and pawn shops around here charge $25. Retail gun shops charge $55 and up. I'm about 10 miles out of town, so I'm still the $20 guy.

$35 at LGS in Orlando. Smooth as silk operation -- after previous nightmares my shop is well worth a few bucks more. Reliable.

The one that I use is $20, but if you bring in 5 non-perishable food items for the local food bank, they only charge $10 for transfers.

Others are $20-30 and one is $50.

Mine charges $15 plus $5 for the NICS fee. Best deal in South Florida I believe. The name of the place is Rightful Liberty and they are awesome people to deal with. They are right on US1 and 97 St. http://rightfulliberty.com/
