Firearm Transfer Form


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.

With the passage of HB1240, DO NOT SHIP  banned semi auto rifles, AR/AK receivers, threaded barrel handguns, AR/AK/MP5 type pistols, semi auto shotguns with mags, pistol grips or threaded barrels.  If we receive these items they will be charged a $100 return processing fee.  There will be a $25 per week storage charge, from the date received.  Return shipping coordination, freight charges are the responsibility of the seller/buyer.   

WE CAN NO LONGER ACCEPT ANY MAGAZINES GREATER THAN 10 ROUNDS, OR FIREARMS WITH GREATER THAN 10 ROUND INTERNAL MAGAZINE (except tube fed lever action rifles).  Any 10+ round magazines received will be removed from the firearm and will be considered abandoned property.

Complete this form as best as possible and press the “SUBMIT” button, the “Seller’s email” will instantly receive our FFL/SOT in an email.  Be sure to CHECK YOUR JUNK OR SPAM mail file. 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 submitted before receiving the item, 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 your form submission after receiving the item.

ANY firearm purchases require HB1143 compliance training.  We offer this class free of charge here: Free 1639 Training. Please complete the class BEFORE you come to the store (effective January 1, 2024)

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

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.

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.
