We Can Help
We are able to assist with private owner transfers for most firearms. There are, however, several rules and regulations that we must adhere to when assisting with any ownership transfers.
ATF OWNERSHIP TRANSFER REGULATIONS
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (or ATF) ONLY allows transfers be made at our location or at a gun show. We will not meet at a private residence or parking lot to perform a transfer.
Currently in the State of Washington, all long guns with the exception of semi-automatic rifles are only able to be sold and transferred after an NICS background check has been completed. If your background check gets a “Proceed,” you will be able to take your gun home that day. Model and serial numbers are not submitted to any state agency.
Handguns and semi-automatic rifles use the state background check system and require a 10-day waiting period even if you have a concealed weapons permit. This requires an appointment to pick up the firearm after we are notified the background check has been complete.
REQUIRED TRANSFER DOCUMENTS
Long Guns – a valid driver license or legal form of I.D. and fill out a 4473 form
Pistols & Revolvers – a valid driver license or legal form of I.D., a filled out 4473 form, and a state transfer application. If available, you must also provide your concealed weapons permit number.
Semi-Automatic Rifles – a valid driver license or legal form of I.D., a filled out 4473 form, a state transfer application, and proof of having completed the required training per Washington State Initiative 1639. If available, you must also provide your concealed weapons permit number.
PISTOLS & REVOLVERS
$50 for the transfer + $18 state fee
*For all WAC shows, we will follow the pricing advertised by the event.
