How do ffl transfers work?

Our cost for transfers

Bay State Surplus is pleased to offer FFL firearm transfers for a flat fee of $45. However, in order to proceed with the transfer, we need the necessary documentation. This includes a valid copy of the transferring FFL's license, as well as a copy of the purchasing party's valid ID, such as a driver's license or passport. We also need a copy of the firearm's serial number and a copy of the invoice or receipt. Once we have all of the required documents, we can proceed with the transfer.

In order for the transfer process to be successful, it is essential that the purchasing party is legally licensed to own a firearm. This process will only succeed if the purchasing party is in compliance with all applicable local, state and federal laws. We take the responsibility to ensure that our customers are legally authorized to possess firearms very seriously.

How to Purchase a Firearm from another State.

The information needed for a safe and legal transfer.

When it comes to purchasing a firearm from another state, there are a few steps you should take to ensure that the process is done legally and safely.


First, you should check the laws in the state where the firearm is located. Each state has its own laws regarding the sale, transfer, and possession of firearms, and some states may have restrictions on out-of-state gun purchases. It is important to familiarize yourself with the laws of the state in which you want to purchase the firearm.


Next, you will want to research the gun shop or dealer from which you plan to purchase the firearm. You should make sure that they are licensed to sell firearms in the state in which they are located. You should also check that the shop or dealer has a good reputation and is in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.


Once you have identified a reputable shop or dealer, you should contact them to discuss the details of the purchase. You should provide them with your contact information, the type and make of the firearm you would like to purchase, and the expected date of delivery. The shop or dealer should provide you with the necessary paperwork to complete the purchase, including a background check.


Once the purchase is complete, you should arrange for the firearm to be shipped to your state. You should check with the laws of your state to determine what type of shipping and tracking is required for the firearm. You should also check with the shipper to make sure that the firearm is shipped in a secure manner.


Finally, you should follow all applicable laws in your state regarding the registration and transfer of the firearm. You should also store the firearm in a safe and secure manner and practice safe gun handling at all times.


By following these steps, you can purchase a firearm from another state without running afoul of the law.
