Firearm Transfers

In an effort to provide our customers with the best level of customer service and quality products, AX Tactical LLC has adjusted it’s firearm (FFL) transfer policy.  AX Tactical LLC will no longer accept transfers for firearms that are available through our website or our vast manufacturer / distributor network. AX Tactical will accept transfers for used firearms, antiques, collectables, and any other firearm that we are unable to obtain for the customer.  This policy change is being implemented to improve customer service and provide added value to our customers. There are no transfer fees associated with firearms ordered via AX Tactical’s website or retail store. AX Tactical’s transfer fee is $35 per firearm for all approved FFL transfers. 

Firearm transfers will not be accepted unless it has received our prior approval in advance. Please submit a transfer request form here and our transfer department will respond back to you via email when your request has been approved.  Any firearms shipments received without prior approval will be refused or returned to the sender. Any shipping or return fees or charges are the responsibility of the sender. An approved transfer is any firearm that we don’t ordinarily sell, stock or special order. Examples include used guns, estate sales, inheritances, out-of-production/hard to get firearms, and firearms we simply cannot otherwise offer for sale.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Our transfer fee is only $35 for pre approved transfers. Additional fees may be assessed for transfers shipped without preapproval. 

HOW DO I START THE TRANSFER PROCESS?

Submit a transfer request form here and our receiving department will contact you via email when your request has been approved.

WHEN CAN I PICK IT UP?
Please allow 3 business days after delivery for processing.

*After the firearm has been processed into our system, we will contact you to let you know when it is ready for pick up. If you are tracking your transfer via FedEx, UPS, or USPS and it shows it has arrived, that does not mean that it is ready to be picked up.  We require a minimum of 3 business days after delivery to AX Tactical LLC to process all the paperwork. We will contact you when it is ready. Contacting us to check on your transfer before then could cause additional delays in the process.

 

WHAT WILL I NEED TO BRING WITH ME TO PICK UP MY FIREARM?

When you arrive to pick up your firearm you will need a valid government-issued photo ID with your current physical street address on it and will need to fill out a Federal Form 4473 for the background check. All handgun transfers will require a valid NY State pistol permit. Once all of these are complete, and your background check is approved, you can take possession of your firearm.

WHAT IF I GET DELAYED OR DENIED ON MY BACKGROUND CHECK??

If you are found ineligible to receive the firearm, you are responsible for the cost of processing the transfer and for all return shipping costs and fees.

It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure the firearm being transferred is compliant with all federal, state, and local laws. AX Tactical LLC reserves the right to refuse transfer for any items that are determined by AX Tactical LLC to be non-compliant.  Additionally, AX Tactical LLC reserves the right to refuse a transfer for any reason, including but not limited to failure to pass an FBI/NICS background check. If a transfer is refused for any reason, the customer is responsible for all transfer fees, both inbound ($35) and outbound ($50) and any return shipping and handling fees associated with returning the firearm.

 

I'M TRANSFERRING MULTIPLE FIREARMS. DO I NEED TO FILL OUT A FORM FOR EACH ONE?

If they are coming from different places, Yes. Due to the high number of transfers we process, we require a transfer form for each firearm that is being sent to help us keep them organized and process them as quickly as possible. We appreciate your cooperation.


HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO PICK IT UP?

Transfers will be held for no longer than 30 days. Any firearm not claimed after 30 days will become the property of AX Tactical LLC.

 

NEW YORK STATE COMPLIANCE:

If you are unsure of a firearm’s compliance, please contact us before initiating the transfer process. If a noncompliant firearm is sent to us on your behalf without our prior approval, additional fees will apply.

We look forward to being your go-to pro shop! If you have any unanswered questions, email us at info@axtactical.com
