x2. They are a Kommiefornia-based company (see eBay) and will mess you up pretty well if they sniff a firearms, magazine of 10+ rounds or ammunition related transaction. Troll the gun and knife forums to read horror stories about thousands of dollars being frozen and "internet friendships" ruined over a simple Paypal rifle sale. Paypal is happy to profit off of firearms related transactions that are not guns, ammo or standard capacity magazines. They pretty much want the rest of the country to behave as if they must comply with PRK laws when using Paypal services. Their playground, their rules; so be it. Personally, I quit using them when I heard about all that nonsense. 99% of "gun-guys" will prefer a USPS or bank drawn money order anyhow (not some gas station variety money order or Western Union transfer). I'd suggest getting delivery confirmation and insurance.
They win auction.
They mail payment to you.
You cash/deposit check.
You have your FFL ship firearm to their FFL. FFL can use USPS which is MUCH cheaper than you shipping overnight via FedEx of UPS.
You spend money once buyer is confirmed as happy.
