How to Buy a Gun Online
“How to Buy a Firearm Online” from Arms Industries section was created to provide clear instructions on the process of purchasing a firearm online so you know what to expect. Buying a firearm from Arms Industries is not only safe and convenient, but is often times more affordable than going down to your local gun store. However, there are a few things to know before buying a firearm online.
The Gun Control Act of 1968, prevents Arms Industries, or any other licensed firearm dealer, from shipping firearms directly to you (e.g., buyer, private party). All firearms purchased from Arms Industries MUST be shipped directly to a Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) dealer in your area.
You must be at least 21 years of age to purchase a pistol/handgun, stockless shotgun, complete AR or AK receiver, or stripped lower receiver. You must also be a legal resident of the state in which you wish to transfer the firearm.
SECTION 1: INSTRUCTIONS:
- Shop online and select the firearm you wish to purchase.
- Verify the quantity of firearms you wish to purchase, then click “Add to Cart.” At this point, you may continue shopping for another firearm, or product that does not require an FFL.
If you purchase a combination of serialized products (e.g., pistol, rifle, shotgun) and non-serialized items (e.g., magazines, flashlights, accessories), the serialized products will be shipped to the transferring dealer you select, and the non-serialized items will be shipped to the billing address associated with your credit card.
- Create an account or log in (Customers must be registered to use our service)
- Enter billing and credit card information. (Your billing address and shipping address MUST match. Shipping address reflects billing address associated with your credit card, not the shipping address of your FFL dealer)
