ANTIQUES on the Side, FFL

We are also a Federal Firearms Dealer.  Please contact me before you list me as your FFL to make sure I will be available to receive and transfer the firearm for you.  We specialize in incoming firearm transfers.  Recent changes in the Firearms Transaction Record, form (4473), make it necessary for the firearm decription (Section A) to be completed before the transferee can complete the buyer information section (Section B).  All sections of the transaction record must be handwritten and completed at my place of business.  This means you cannot complete the transaction record form and I can't do the NICS check before I have the firearm in my possession.  Because of this new form sequence, please do not have a firearm sent to me if you are not absolutely sure the NICS check will come back favorably. If you have a firearm sent to me and the NICS check comes back denied, you will be responsible for the cost of shipping the firearm back to the seller.  Also, because the NICS checks have not been coming back as fast they used to, be prepared to wait for it to come back or leave and return later when it does come back.  I'm sorry this change in prcedure is necessary but I am at the mercy of the ATF and the FBI. We are located one mile from the Isabella County Sportsman's Club.  Pick up your firearm from us and be on the range in minutes.  Our fee structure is as follows:

  • Incoming sale transfer fee - $30
        >  No extra fee for the background check
  • Outgoing sale transfer fee - $30
        >  Plus ACTUAL shipping cost

How does a transfer work? -  Check with me via email to make sure I will be available to transfer the firearm for you.  Purchase the firearm and select me as your FFL.  If the seller needs a copy of my FFL license contact me via email with the seller's email address and I will send them my license.  When the firearm arrives, I will contact you and we can arrange an appointment to complete the Transaction Record Form. I will submit the NICS check and hopefully you will be on your way in a timely manner. Be sure to bring your driver's license and $30 cash for the transfer.  Buy more than one gun on the same transfer and each additional gun is $25. 

So, if you are ready to do a transfer, email me at:
