FFL Transfers – Legally Obtaining A Firearm
Online gun sales are very popular and the transaction is easily completed, but requires a FFL Transfer. The seller must ship the firearm to a federal firearms license holding dealer in your home state. When your local receives the firearm, federal law requires you to complete an ATF form 4473 and undergo a background check. It may sound complicated, but it is really very simple.
GS Custom can transfer firearms you have purchased or obtained elsewhere. In addition, if you sell or intend to sell a firearm to a person legally permitted to own that firearm by federal, state, and local laws, we can ship the firearm to an FFL dealer at their business address. That FFL dealer will complete the transfer to the buyer. You can see our FFL Transfers process description under the Services tab.
The process is simple and completed within a few minutes thousands of times per day throughout the US.
GS Custom will transfer up to 4 firearms to you on the same ATF form 4473, which now has a four firearm limit, for a total price of $25. Just complete our online FFL Transfer request form and we will take care of everything else. The selling dealer will supply you with a tracking number so that you will be aware of when your shipment arrives at GS Custom. We do not open your firearm shipment until you are in the shop. It is difficult for us to notify you when it arrives because many vendors do not put the customer’s name on the outside of the package. To complete our request for FFL Transfer Form [Click Here].
