4) FFL/Gun Dealer 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. You must be 18 years of age or older to purchase Firearms, Ammo or Receivers from our web site. Age restrictions may vary from state to state so please make sure you are old enough for the item before placing the order. You may not purchase a firearm as a gift & have it shipped or transfer into somebody else name. This Federal Law requires that the name on of the person placing & paying for the order must be the person filling out the paperwork at your transfer dealer.
- 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 endorse any FFL Dealers, we only provide this list of dealers that we have shipped to in the past. ANY issues that may arise with the transfer from the dealer you chose is your responsibility . Any returns because of complications are subject to the 20 % restocking fee. We are not responsible for arranging the FFL transfer this is completely the customers responsibility and we do not contact dealers for the customer. We will not send emails , faxes or anything else to your transfer dealer requesting the transfer. We will not send a copy of our ffl in advance of the order but per ATF regulations we will include a copy with the firearm and a copy of the order receipt. If you do not contact the dealer in advance and the gun is returned because of issue with the dealer you chose you will be charged a restocking 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
- Unable to find an FFL in your area on our 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.
- Due to possibility of errors we do not issue serial numbers in advance or email them to you after an order is shipped. The final serial number verification will be done by your ffl dealer at the time they receive the weapon. This provides the most full proof way to avoid typo issues etc.
- Atlantic Firearms is not responsible for ANY complications that arise with your FFL dealer and transfer. Any cost of the transfer or other is the responsibility of the customer.
- Any firearms that are shipped back because of FFL transfer complications and need to be shipped back out will be subject to 20% restock fees & Return ship charges.

The total for this would be $90.00 so please make sure you have ironed out all the details with your FFL in advance of the order.
IF YOUR FFL DEALER IS NOT IN OUR DATABASE
If you have not lined them up yet, you can skip this step. When you complete your order ask the FFL Dealer to send us a copy of their FFL paperwork, they can fax/mail or email, this info will be listed at the top of you Completed Order Receipt. Your order will not ship until your FFL Dealer has sent in a copy of your order receipt & their FFL.
Please Note: We must have the dealer write Your NAME & ORDER NUMBER on the fax or email with the FFL, this allows us to know who & what the FFL is for, if we do not get this we cannot process the order. If your dealer does not include your NAME & ORDER NUMBER with the FFL sent in we will not process the order.
We will NOT contact your dealer to arrange the transfer or request paperwork from them. We will not call, email or fax any forms or other etc to your dealer in advance. The process is simple >> Your dealer faxes or emails a copy of their ffl with your name & order number & we send a copy of our ffl with the firearm to your dealer, It is quite simple & EASY !!. Anything more required by your dealer is only slowing down the process. All requests and communications with their FFL are done by the customer only. Please do not request alterations to our listed policy they will be declined. We do not provide you with serial numbers of firearms in advance this will be given to you by your dealer once they receive the item and verify the serial number. This cuts down on possible mistakes so please do not ask or demand the numbers.
If you place an order for an item that is not legal in your state and we have to cancel the order you will be charged a $45.00 cancellation fee. Please verify that the item is Legal BEFORE ordering. This is your responsibility not ours and no excuses will be accepted.
All orders will be sent with a Order Receipt listing the item, price & serial number if a firearm. Please do not request for us not to send this it will be denied. We will not modify or alter Order receipts in any way.
PLEASE DO NOT CHANGE YOUR FFL, once chosen we start processing ATF FFL approvals in advance.Make sure the dealer you choose is the dealer you want it shipped to.

We may not be able to change if the paperwork has already been processed and ALL change request must be submitted via email no exceptions.
