SHIPPING A FIREARM - FFLs AND TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP

any policy of this kind and concerning your obligations. You do not pay BudsGunShop.com the transfer fee. By purchasing a firearm

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.
All Ammunition Sales are Final
