About Gun Transfers:
At Carolina Sporting Arms, we want 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 and supply the product for you, but if a transfer is still necessary, the following policy is in effect.
Carolina Sporting Arms does reserve the right to charge the full transfer amount if vital information is not supplied with the firearm being transferred. Each firearm for transfer requires the following information:
- – You, as the transferee, must contact us prior to us sending our license to your shipper. We have a short form to fill out and need your signature.
- – 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. The exchange of the FFL license must be made between the FFL holders. We will not send the customer our FFL to be relayed to the other FFL holder involved in the transfer.
- – A contact name, email address, and daytime phone number for whom the firearm is being transferred to.
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 new or 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). The buyer should then contact their friends at Carolina Sporting Arms to provide relevant information about the sale, including the seller’s contact information and specific product information.
Next, Carolina Sporting Arms contacts the seller to provide a copy of our FFL, to receive a copy of the seller’s FFL, and to share address/shipping information. The seller will then 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. Customers can then come into Carolina Sporting Arms to complete necessary documents for ownership transfer, and we take care of the rest.
The experienced staff at Carolina Sporting Arms is here to help facilitate all of your gun transfer needs – an essential service in today’s Internet shopping age!
