FFL Transfer Fee

A friend's cousin is telling him that in CA you can't find an FFL who will do a transfer for less than $75. My question is whether the guy is too lazy to really shop for a dealer to transfer through or whether this is really the case? Where we live I have a guy that does it for $10 and few would pay more than $35-40 for it.

For a CA resident to CA resident private party transfer there is a legislated maximum fee of, I think, $10. For an interstate transfer into CA there is no limit.

Also should have mentioned he's in the Bay Area.

Just looking for an FFL who has a better rate.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks.

Seems like $50-65 is doable in the area which includes the mandatory state fee.
