General FFL Information
All Firearm orders will ship to the FFL Dealer for transfer to you the process is easy if you simply follow the steps . Please review the info below carefully to avoid any confusion you are ordering a firearm not a toy so it is important to fully understand the process.
Some common examples of an FFL dealer are gun stores, gunsmiths, pawnshops and shooting ranges. You may look these up in the yellow pages or use our FFL locator's link on the left side of this page. These dealers will assist in your transfer but since they are not on file with us they will have to send a copy of their license.
- They will do the background check and then transfer the item over to you. Transfer fees vary, so you may want to shop around to different dealers for the best price (the national average is $25-$40). You will need to verify with the FFL that the item you are buying is legal for you to own and should discuss them doing the transfer for you.
- We have an extensive list of dealers already on file and you are welcome to choose one but please make sure that YOU have spoken with the FFL and agreed that they will handle the transfer for you BEFORE YOU ORDER. You need to make sure the item is legal for your state and what the cost will be for the transfer fee etc . We are not affiliated with nor endorsing any FFL Dealers, we only provide this list of dealers that we have shipped to in the past. We are not responsible for arranging the FFL transfer this is completely the customers responsibility and we do not contact dealers for the customer. If you do not contact the dealer in advance and the gun is returned because of issue wiht the dealer you chose you will be charged a re stocking fee. Due to privacy rules we can not post FFL Dealer phone numbers, however you can usually find this information online or in your local phone directory.Atlantic's Gun Dealer List

You can use the following search tool provided by www.FFLregistry.com to find other dealers near you please note these dealers are not on file with our office and will need to fax or email in a copy of their ffl with your name & order number attached.
- The person listed as paying for the item on the order must be the one picking up the firearm and filling out the 4473 form at the FFL transfer dealer. It is illegal to pay for the rifle under one name & have it shipped for another this is called a "straw purchase" and is a federal offense.
