Firearms Transfer Tutorial

Be aware of changes to magazine capacity limits effective July 1 2022!!!

This is a quick and simple process, if you read and follow the directions. It works 24/7/365, for the fastest possible customer fulfillment.

Upon completing this form and pressing the “SUBMIT” button, the “Seller’s email” will instantly receive our FFL/SOT in an email. If you do not receive it immediately, CHECK YOUR JUNK OR SPAM mail file, it’s there. This form may be submitted by the “Buyer” or the “Seller,” the confirming email will be sent to the “Seller” email. Many online brokers refuse to submit this form, in which case the “Buyer” must complete with as much information as they have.

Transfer fees, $50 for the first firearm, $40 for each additional. Without a transfer form application, or incomplete form requiring additional research by staff, the transfer fee is $75 per item.   If the firearm requires disassembly to validate make, model serial number, additional service fees may apply, starting at $25.

NFA transfer fee, $125 per item. Fingerprinting and photos not included, but are available in store for an additional charge (valid for 3 years, no recurring charge.).  We are E Filing form 4 submissions.   We will call you and set an appointment for form submission after receiving the item.

ANY semi-automatic rifle requires proof of training for i-1639 compliance.  We offer this class free of charge here: Free 1639 Training. Please complete the class BEFORE you come to the store.

All background checks are started AFTER the firearm is received and processed into our inventory.  Transfer form submission is NOT  background check.  Be prepared for a 2-4 week approval time from law enforcement agency to pick up your firearm, after starting your background check.

Items not claimed within 10 business days are subject to storage fees of $10 per week. Items unclaimed after 30 days will be surrendered to Sporting Systems and sold. Denied transactions will be charged the transfer fee due and the “buyer” has 30 days to arrange for a refund from the “seller” and pay return shipping and handling.  Transfers not started within 30 days for any reason are subject to forfeiture.   Once an item is received by our shop, the transfer fee is due, no exceptions.   We are not accepting semi-automatic rifle transfers from out of state private parties to Washington residents.

Private sellers shipping to us, please include a copy of your Drivers license (in the FFL field) with submission AND include a copy with the item.

Sales taxes are collected on all commercial transactions only, but not private party sales. If this is a private party sale or gift, please provide a private party or gift receipt.

Emailed delivery notifications from shippers ARE NOT PROOF THAT THE ITEM IS READY FOR PICK UP. Once the transfer is received AND processed into our inventory, the buyer will be notified by SPORTING SYSTEMS. Your background check will be started after the item is received and processed into inventory.  This form is NOT your background check.

WE WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY MAGAZINES GREATER THAN 10 ROUNDS, OR FIREARMS WITH GREATER THAN 10 ROUND INTERNAL MAGAZINES after June 1, 2022 (except tube fed lever action rifles).  Do not send any 10+ round magazines directly to us after June 1, as we cannot guarantee our ability to deliver to the client  before July 1, 2022.   If you choose to ship them direct to the buyer, that’s between you and them.
