Gun Trasnfer Services
At Carolina Sporting Arms it is our desire to be your first choice for all your Firearms and Accessories needs. We do understand that at times you will find a product at another dealer that requires a dealer to dealer transfer. We would always appreciate the opportunity to match the price of the product and supply the product but if a transfer is still necessary the following policy is in effect.
Our Transfer fee is $50 for each firearm transferred. Because we want to reward and thank our current customers (current being defined as you have bought a firearm from us in the last 12 months) we are willing to reduce this fee to $35, for up to three transfers a year. If you are not a current customer we want to introduce you to Carolina Sporting Arms and encourage you to become a current customer. Because we feel confident you will become a customer we are willing to reduce the fee to $35 for your initial transfer. This reduction in our transfer fee is just one of the many benefits we offer our customers.
Carolina Sporting Arms does reserve the right to charge the full amount if vital information is not supplied with the firearm being transferred. Each firearm for transfer requires the following information:
- A copy of the Federal Firearms License of the dealer the gun is coming from or going to. This license can be faxed or mailed but the FFL license must be present before we can receive the firearm to our books.
- A contact name, email address and daytime phone number for who the Firearm is being transferred to.
It is our desire to make your transfer a top priority, but please understand on average we receive ten (10) firearms a day to be logged into our books. It takes time for us to receive and log all these firearms. All firearms must be on our books before they can be transferred. We will contact you immediately once your transfer firearm is ready to be picked up.
* Carolina Sporting Arms will only receive and ship firearms to Federally licensed dealers. We will not receive or ship firearms to individuals under any circumstance.
How the transfer works:
The firearm buyer purchases a used gun from a dealer in another state (or online). The buyer then pays the seller the price of the gun and shipping charges (if applicable). Then, the buyer should contact their friends at Carolina Sporting Arms to provide relevant information about the sale, including seller’s contact information and product information.
Next, Carolina Sporting Arms contacts the seller, to provide a copy of our FFL, receive a copy of the seller’s FFL and to share address / shipping information. The seller will send the product to the Carolina Sporting Arms store. Once the firearm is received, Carolina Sporting Arms will contact the buyer to acknowledge receipt of the firearm. Customer can then come in to Carolina Sporting Arms to complete necessary documents for ownership transfer and we take care of the rest.
