How to Find A Dealer
- Contact a local FFL dealer in your area, and make sure they are willing to accept a transfer of a firearm for you (See Dealer Locator button below.) Be aware they usually charge a small fee, which is normal for their time.
- Obtain a copy of the dealer’s FFL license
- Send a copy of the dealer’s FFL License to us. This must be provided to Crossfire Gunsmith & Firearms, so we can verify that we are sending the firearm to registered Firearm dealer. You can email that to us at:
- Pick out the Firearm or ammo and anything else you would like to purchase and add it to your cart.
- Proceed to the check out and pay for your items.
- After your purchase is processed you will receive a confirmation email from us.
- Once we receive a copy of your FFL dealer’s license we will ship your firearm and notify the dealer that it is on the way
- You will receive another email confirmation to notify you that your order has shipped. This email will also contain tracking information.
