Hassle Free Firearms Transfers
A Federal Firearms License transfer is necessary when a person wishes to purchase a firearm outside of the state they reside in or from a geographically inconvenient FFL holder. Frontier Firearms will assist customers with firearm transfers from licensed FFL dealers and individual sellers.
We will require a valid form of government-issued I.D. upon pick up of any transferred firearms. Only the person whose name is on the transferred item’s paperwork and invoice may legally pick up the firearm.
How does the Firearm Transfer work?
Purchase the firearm you want.
Fill out and submit our Firearms Transfer Request below.
We will exchange FFL information with the original firearm dealer.
The original firearm dealer (seller) will ship your purchase to Frontier Firearms USA.
If you purchased from a private seller (an individual who is not a licensed gun dealer), we will not send a copy of our FFL. Instead, we give private sellers (non-FFL holders) our FFL number and our address.
We will contact you when your firearm has been checked in by our receiving department.
You will need to complete an ATF Form 4473 for the necessary background check. You must be the original purchaser.
You will be charged our fee for the firearm transfer.
Pick Up Your Firearms
We Handle the Red Tape
Don't worry about Government regulations. That's our job - to see that your transfer complies with all State and Federal firearms laws. All you need to know is that before a firearm can be turned over to you, you must complete a Federal Form 4473, and we must run a criminal background check on you. This seems daunting, but it's not because we'll guide you through each step of the process on our fully computerized 4473 system.
Once your gun has arrived, we need one or two days for internal paperwork. Before coming to pick up your gun, wait for us to contact you.
You must have a sales receipt from the seller showing you are the actual buyer of the firearm. If the sales receipt does not have your name and address matching your government-issued photo ID, we cannot transfer the gun to you (per ATF regulations the firearm can only be transferred to the person who paid for the gun).
We do not accept drop shipments
We will only accept transfers from a retailers' actual, in-stock inventory.
We do not accept drop-shipments from wholesalers.
Make sure the gun you order will be shipping from the retail dealer you are buying from and not from a firearm distributor/wholesaler.
Drop shipped firearms will be returned to the wholesaler.
We will contact you when your firearm is ready for pickup.
Bring your sales receipt that shows you and not someone else paid for the gun to be transferred.
Transfer fees do NOT include State of Tennessee Background Check Fee of $10. Transfer fees are subject to change without out notice
