SHIPPING A FIREARM TO AN FFL DEALER
Compact Firearms will transfer ownership of any firearm ONLY to individuals or agencies in possession of a valid Federal Firearms License (FFL). This means we cannot ship directly to you (unless you have a valid FFL).
(Click here for a short tutorial on How to Buy Online)
At your request Compact Firearms will transfer your purchased firearm to a licensed gun dealer in your state.
- It is your responsibility to complete all required paperwork when you pick up your purchase from your local dealer.
- It is your responsibility to contact the FFL dealer and inform them of the sale and impending shipment.
- As a courtesy, we will include a copy of our FFL License with each firearm shipped for your dealer to file.
- We reserve the right to deny shipment to any dealer and will contact you if there is cause to do so.
- Be aware that it is customary for your local dealer to charge a transaction fee at the time you pick up your purchase.
This transfer fee is strictly between you and your local dealer. It is your responsibility to check with your local dealer concerning any policy of this kind and concerning your obligations. You do not pay Compact Firearms the transfer fee. By purchasing a firearm from us you acknowledge that you may have to pay your dealer a fee for transferring the gun to you.
In order for us to ship to your local dealer, we must have a signed copy of their valid Federal Firearms License. You, the buyer, are responsible for making sure we receive a copy of this document before we can ship your firearm. Often, your dealer will wish to send us a copy of their license directly. They can do so by the following prefered methods:
- Email a .pdf copy of the license to firstname.lastname@example.org - This method is fastest and clear.
- Or Fax a copy of the license to 866-870-3697
- Or post a copy of the license to the following address:
