Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Are your items and firearms new?

A: Yes, unless explicitly marked as Used or Refurbished all items and firearms are new.

Q: Where can my dealer send a copy of their FFL for my order?

A: Please email to [email protected] with your order number referenced in the subject line. For more information see our Firearm Transfer Page.

Q: What are your firearm/item ship times?

A: As of June 2022 most serialized items ship within 14 days. In a small percentage of cases orders have exceeded 14 days but typically are shipped within 18 days. However, not being able to contact your transferring FFL can lead to delays. Please contact your FFL if you purchase a firearm. If you ordered a non-firearm these items typically ship in under 10 days, but because of our low pricing some items may have to be pulled from slower shipping distribution partners that can lead to longer than normal ship times. 

Q: Are all the FFL Dealers on your list of dealers on file?

A. No, we generate the list from publically available databases of FFL dealers. This does not mean we have every FFL on file. If you would like to know if we have your dealers FFL on file, once an order is placed, please call 877-205-7025. We do contact your dealer but ask that you, the customer, do as well as this aids the speed of the process. Firearms are federally regulated items and certain conditions must be met to legally transfer a firearm to another dealer. Failure to contact your designated FFL may lead to shipping delays.

Q: I want to order an NFA item. What do I do?

A: Contact your preferred dealer and make sure they can and will receive NFA items to conduct your transfer. A Form 3 Approval must be received before your item can ship, this can take 2-4 weeks to receive from ATF. It is imperative to have your dealer send a copy of their FFL & SOT to [email protected] We CANNOT submit a Form 3 to ATF for approval without a valid copy of your dealers FFL and SOT.

A: Your dealer can send a copy of their license to [email protected] and we will add them to our database. Please have your dealer put "FFL Addition," in the subject line.

Q: What are your firearm shipping rates?

A: Handguns are $18.99 for the first and $5.00 per additional. Long guns are $29.99 for the first and $10.00 per additional.
