  1. But, to be absolutely sure, using an FFL to do the transfer will certainly cover everything.  The total cost is not much more than what they charge the buyer for storage. When you sell the firearm, you can tell the buyer upfront that they will have to go through your FFL for transfer and pay the transfer cost.  Just my opinion.

  2. You hit the jackpot on an old inventory item they must have found in the back of the safe.  What year was this new one produced?  There might have been a used one in rough shape with no factory box for $800, but the vast majority are selling for $1000-$1500, which does not include tax and shipping.

    The seller would not get $1100 so you know someone who is going to list a firearm for less than 10%? There is also an advantage to accepting credit cards which adds value on gunbroker, with GB fees and CC fees you are not getting $1100. You would be lucky to get $1k.


    credit cards offer protection to the buyer. 

    best of luck with your sale, seems to have sat around a while, clearly to expensive and my offer of $900 seems fair.

    Thanks, but this seller charged an additional 3% credit card fee, and here is a Gunbroker fee based on a $1500 sale, so $1100+ is very correct: 


    For example, a $1500 item would cost:

    1. $250 times 6% = $15.00
    2. $1250 times 3.5% = $43.75
    3. Total = $58.75

    Yes but if you are the seller you would get around a grand. There is other examples selling less than 1k and one going as much as $1600.

    The seller would get $1100+, but that's not the point.  The point is there was a reputable buyer that was willing to pay well over $1300. after shipping taxes, and FFL transfer fee.

    Not having an expiration date on the IL CCL, I suspect sometime soon, states that honor the Illinois CCL, will cease honoring it. Glad I have a 10-year Florida nonresident license.


    That's an interesting point you brought up.  Law enforcement can run your card number if they feel like it, but not having an expiration date just adds another level of work for them in non-serious situations.

    I was able to talk to a representative from the ISP about the issue, solution, and a way to potentially monitor the situation.



    The overall issue is two fold. One, is the indicator on some cards may say "Y" where it should say "CCL". This was a programming error. Issue two is that on the bottom of some cards (where the FOID "cardholder" also has an active CCL) the wording on the bottom of the card states: This does not authorize the carrying of a concealed weapon. This is incorrect. This issue was caused by the use of an "incorrect card blank".



    This ISP is currently reviewing previous cards issued. If it is noted that the cards have one or both of the issues (for FOID/CCL combined cards) the ISP is going to reissue the cards. This process may take some time. After the cards have been printed, the ISP says to allow 30-45 days for mailing.


    Potential Monitoring:

    As the cards are going through the "reissuance process", you might be able to monitor some of the progress. If you go to your ISP online account, you might note that the print date (Of the CCL Card) has changed. If this date has changed, it should signify that your card will be reissued, printed, and mailed to you. Once again, it may take 30-45 days to mail. (For a real life experience, my CCL says it was printed on 2/14/2022- where (my renewal) was printed in August, 2021. I am still waiting from my new card in the mail.) 


    Recap/ Suggestion:

    I had an issue with my card. I am lucky enough to live in somewhat close proximity to one of the ISP kiosks. The representative was not only helpful but extremely knowledge able about all of the moving pieces and she gave me an update on the situation. She stated that this may impact several (many) cards, and was hopefully that the ISP would communicate more, to a larger audience,  as to an update and the number of cards impacted. With any luck, the ISP should be able to rectify the situation without any further intervention from the "cardholder". If,

    after an extended period of time and you do not see any action, you may need to reach out to the ISP to remedy the situation.


    Good luck to all who have been effected!


    Thanks for this update. I'm still waiting over a year now for my CCL renewal, so maybe my new card will be correct whenever they decide to look at my renewal.

    Okay. I am going to ask an honest question. I have tried to read through this thread but I not clear on it.


    When will you get the new card. When you renew? Or is everyone getting a new card regardless of expiration date. If everyone is getting a new card, when will this happen?




    Last I read,  they will be issued throughout 2022 to new applicants, renewals and to existing non-expired holders.  Everyone is supposed to get the new cards in 2022.

    Going through an FFL private sale begins in 2024.


    Since posting my earlier question ,I went and read the most recent version of the act and it already states this reporting  requirement for private sales.I knew it was in the original bill,but didn't know it made it into the act until now.


    ETA.    (b) Any person within this State who transfers or causes to be transferred any firearm, stun gun, or taser shall keep a record of such transfer for a period of 10 years from the date of transfer. Any person within this State who receives any firearm, stun gun, or taser pursuant to subsection (a-10) shall provide a record of the transfer within 10 days of the transfer to a federally licensed firearm dealer and shall not be required to maintain a transfer record. The federally licensed firearm dealer shall maintain the transfer record for 20 years from date of receipt

     Somehow this slipped by me until now.



    A little unclear about what you are saying about the private sale FFL reporting.  Here are the details that take effect 1-2024:


    The following additional provisions take effect on Jan. 1, 2024:

    • Requires person-to-person firearm transfers to be subject to National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) checks at a federal licensed firearms dealer or through online validation by the Illinois State Police using NICS.
    • Requires Federal Firearms Licensures (FFL) to keep the record of a transfer for 20 years. On the demand of a peace officer, transferees have to identify the FFL dealer maintaining the transfer record. The penalty for not doing so is a Class A misdemeanor.
    • Requires that those who receive a firearm in a private transfer to provide a record of the transfer to a licensed firearm dealer within 10 days. The dealer in turn must keep the record for 20 years and may charge up to $25 for keeping it. The recipient of the firearm must be able to provide the name of the firearm dealer maintaining the record for that particular firearm upon demand by law enforcement. Failure to do so is a Class A misdemeanor.
