ARRANGE FOR THE FIREARM TRANSFER
Federal firearms laws prevents Fernwood Armory from shipping firearms directly to individuals without a valid Federal Firearms License (FFL), however we can ship them to a local FFL Holder near you. This may be a local gun store, range, gunsmith or other location that holds an FFL.
Need help finding an FFL? We recommend these resources:
Once you know which FFL will be handling your transfer, have the FFL contact us:
FFLs must be exchanged before the firearm can be shipped.
When your FFL holder receives your firearm, you will need to pick it up. Please inspect your firearm to make certain that everything is acceptable before filling out the necessary paperwork. Should you need to return the firearm, please see our return policy below.
You will be responsible for any fees the receiving FFL holder charges for handling the transfer. These rates vary, you may want to check with several in your area using the above links to find the best deal.
You must fill out the BATFE form 4473 when the firearm is picked up at the receiving FFL holder. This is for the FBI background check.
