filling out state and federal forms, calling in the NICS background check,
going over the Attorney General's Consumer Protection disclosures (for

lot of work involved in doing a transaction.

If you bought the firearm from us we charge a flat $25
fee to pack and ship your firearm to the factory as a courtesy to
you. This just barely covers the cost of shipping, insurance and labor. All handguns must go Next Day Air.

freight and insurance costs)
If you bought the firearm from another dealer the
charge is $50.
We will call you when your repair returns.
note that Federal laws allow an individual to ship a firearm to a repair
center. Make sure that the return address you use is one where someone can
sign for the package. You don't want to find you firearm on your door step!
Pickups from Police
If your firearms are
being held at a police department, call Tom or Carl for assistance.
Depending on the location of the town and our staffing, we will do our
best to work with you in picking them up and selling them for you.
There is a $100 (minimum) pickup fee plus a transfer fee per
gun. The paperwork involved with firearms is very
time consuming and costly. This is another service that we provide to our
customers as a courtesy and would like to recover our costs.
