Firearms Transfer Tutorial

Please read the ENTIRE form:

We appreciate your FFL transfer application. Upon completing this form and pressing the “SUBMIT” button, the “Seller” will automatically receive our FFL/SOT and a transfer acknowledgment email. If you do not receive it immediately, check your spam or junk 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, the transfer fee is $75 per item.

ANY semi-automatic rifle requires proof of training for i-1639 compliance. There are no exemptions for military, law enforcement, CPL holder, or instructors. 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. A Concealed Pistol License does not impact your background check. Be prepared for a 2-4 week approval time from law enforcement agency to pick up your firearm.

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.)

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 $50 transfer fee and the “buyer” has 30 days to arrange for a refund from the “seller” and pay return shipping and handling. We are not accepting semi-automatic rifle transfers from private parties to Washington residents.

Private sellers, 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, 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.
