Do you do FFL transfers of guns?

For used guns, we charge a $50 transfer fee.  If you are purchasing a new gun, we encourage you to check with us first to see if we can get the gun for you at or near the same price, since shipping and handling and a transfer fee is usually involved.  If we cannot get the new gun you desire, we will accept an FFL transfer for a $50 transfer fee.  We do not accept transfers for new guns that we can acquire or are in our inventory.  The non-refundable TBI $10 background check fee is also collected with the transfer.

Do you Warranty the guns you sell?

The only warranties provided on new guns are by the manufacturers and are contained in each manufacturer's package.  If you experience a problem with a gun purchased from us, we will return the gun to the manufacturer for you if it is still within the warranty period.  Whatever the problem, we will work with you to get it resolved as quickly as possible.
