VERY IMPORTANT - FIREARM RETURNS  !!  Please take your time to inspect all firearms thoroughly BEFORE proceeding with the transfer. Once a new firearm is transfered to you it is considered used, even if unfired.  Consequently, 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 manufacturers 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.  If we do receive a defective firearm that has already been transfered, we will simply forward the firearm to the manufacturer on your behalf.  Manufacturer repaired firearms can be returned directly to the customer without additional FFL transfer or associated fees.  However, if the manufacturer chooses to replace the firearm, the replacement firearm must transfer through your local FFL dealer to document the replacement firearm serial number.
