Firearm Returns - Please take your time to inspect all firearms thoroughly before proceeding with the transfer. Once a new firearm is transferred to you it is considered used, even if unfired.  We cannot provide a full refund for new firearms once they have been transferred into your possession.  Also, we do not reimburse FFL transfer fees on returned items.  We do understand that some manufacturer defects may not be identifiable upon initial inspection.  However, upon discovering a defect after the transfer, the firearm must be returned directly to the manufacturer for replacement or repair (in accordance with manufacturer’s warranty policy).  By sending a defective firearm directly to the manufacturer, you can avoid the unnecessary transfer fees of returning the firearm to us through your local FFL dealer.
