FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT Transfers
Does SafeFire do firearm transfers to other FFL's?
Answer: No, we are not equipped to ship firearms to other dealers.
Am I able to get a copy of SafeFire's FFL to send to the seller?
Answer: No, we will only send a copy of our FFL to other licensed dealers.
Why have I not been contacted even though freight tracking shows that the firearm was delivered to SafeFire?
Answer: Depending on the volume of transfers we receive, from receipt of the firearm, it takes us up to 2 business days (Monday-Friday) to receive the firearm into our system and have it ready to start the transfer process with you. We are unable to transfer any firearm that is not properly entered into our system. If the selling dealer has not provided us with your contact information, we are unable to contact you. We are unable to process a transfer without proper ATF required documentation from the seller and SafeFire retains the right to return any firearm to the selling dealer at our sole discretion. It is a violation of Federal law to transfer a firearm without proper documentation.
What if the firearm is damaged in shipment?
Answer: SafeFire can take no responsibility for firearms damaged in shipment, warranties or repair of the firearm. You will need to contact the seller to see if they have a damage policy.
What happens if I am denied?
Answer: If you are denied, you will still be charged the transfer fee. You will also have 30 days to negotiate a refund with the seller and pay the return shipping.
What if I cannot pick it up right away?
Answer: You will have 30 days to claim your item and start paperwork. After the 30 days, you will be charged an additional storage fee. If you do not claim your item and start paperwork within 90 days, you will have surrendered the item to us and it will be sold.
Can I shoot my NFA item if I had it transferred in?
Answer: Unfortunately not. That is only a perk we give to those who purchase a suppressor or other NFA items through us.
What is provided in the NFA fee?
Answer: We will provide the photos and fingerprinting in addition to us completing all the Form 4 paperwork for you.
Will SafeFire accept transfers from private parties?
Answer: No. SafeFire will only accept transfers from other FFL dealers, with the exception of face-to-face transfers.
