shipping cost on sight?!?!?

What do I not know about handgun sights that create this ridiculous shipping cost. One company wanted $20 and cheaperthandirt wanted $17!!! Buds gun shop wanted a FFL dealer, or at least that's how I was reading the info at the time. I'm obviously missing some type of info.

Do they have what you need on Amazon?

I'm not exactly sure what it is you are ordering, but certainly a FFL is not needed for a set of sights. I usually order stuff from MidwayUSA or Brownell's. I don't recall shipping costs being that outrageous.

For the record: I'm not a fan of Bud's or CheaperThanDirt. But that's just me, I suppose.

CTD are the worst of the worst. I wouldn't use them if they were giving stuff away.

Shop around for different shipping prices, but your will be hard pressed to find any under $7.00 unless there is some kind of free shipping special going. That is why it's somethimes cheaper to combine sights with other parts or magazines.

I'm shopping for Truglo TFX sights, not the TF0. I've found a few spots that have them for $105 but they are the ones with crazy shipping. I'll double check buds, but I swear they said no shipping to my address (no it's not a PO Box).

I ordered some sights from Novak's recently and they charged me $15 for shipping but got them 2 or 3 days after ordering.

I was going to order and get free ship to store to Cabelas, but go figure, they don't list an option for 1911's.

Thanks, but only the TFO's. I'm either going to have to quit being cheap or go with the TFO's if I'm going to bug out over the cost of shipping. And it's not that I'm afraid to spend that much, it's me wanting to get the deal, it's not the same paying more than I feel I should .

This is from the TruGlo.com web site. If your total cost, including shipping, is less than this, then you got a deal. Time to move along.
