FFL Dealer Transfers

We do accept the transfer of firearms you have purchased elsewhere for a $30 fee per gun.

We encourage you to check with us first to see if we can get the gun for you at the same or near the same price. Be aware there are transfer fees and shipping and handling charges involved on the sellers end you will have to pay for to them. Also all transfers are bought as is your transaction is between you and the seller. We are simply receiving the gun for you. We offer no warrantee on transferred guns. So in the end it might be beneficial to buy the gun from us instead.

Please complete the following form regarding your requested firearm transfer to help us get started.
