Firearms Transfer -
By sending an item to The Island Armory LLC for transfer you are agreeing to all of the below terms and conditions.
The Island Armory is happy to handle transfers from other FFL's, we do not accept transfers from every gun shop. We take all liability when we handle the transfer process, so we do our due diligence with every shop we handle transfer for.
Transferring a gun to The Island Armory is a very easy operation. Wherever you buy the gun they are going to need a copy of our FFL in order to ship the gun to us. They must email us for this, every legitimate shop reached out to us to get a copy of our license. Upon request we will e-mail them a copy of our license (we don't fax our license). They will then send the gun to us for you to pick up. They will need to include 2 things with the gun.
If you find a dealer online and they need a copy of our FFL please have them email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are limiting what dealers we do business with and accept transfers from, so we may let you know that we don't accept transfers from certain dealers.
Once we receive your firearm(s) we WILL CONTACT YOU to setup and appointment. If your tracking shows it has been delivered this does not mean it is ready to be picked up, we need to check the firearm into our system. Transfers are handled Monday - Friday from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM. We do not take later appointments or weekends for transfers.
Tracking or shipping information would need to be acquired from the selling FFL, The Island Armory does not have this information.
The firearm(s) will be transferred to us and we will handle the background check and paperwork.
Your Government Issued ID must match the address provided on the paperwork from the purchasing dealer, we will not transfer the firearm if these don't match. If you recently moved or changed addresses we require proof of this in order to complete the transfer. There are absolutely no exceptions to this.
The firearm(s) must be picked up by the person who purchased the item and who’s name is on the credit card purchased with, there are absolutely no exceptions to this.
Starting Aug 24th, 2022 the ATF has changed the definition of a frame and receiver and certain items may need to be serialized by an FFL. If you want to have us transfer a non-serialized item that we will need to put a serial number on, this transfer will cost $100.00. We will have to put a serial number (of our choosing) on the item and it take 5-7 days for us to complete this process.
If the purchaser of the firearm is unable to pickup the item(s) you will need to contact the seller for a refund. We charge $40.00 per item transfer fee and our storage fees below will also apply if items are held longer than 14 days.
If the item needs to be returned we charge our $40.00 transfer fee, plus $10.00 (these items do have to be dropped off at the shipping provider), and return shipping must be provided by the originanting FFL.
All transfers must be picked up from The Island Armory within 14 business days, after the 14th day you will be charged $5.00 per day fee. After 90 days the firearm becomes the property of The Island Armory. (This does not apply to NFA items) The firearm will be sold to recoup our storage and transfer fees.

BACKGROUND CHECK FAILURES
If you fail a background check at the local, state or federal level on a transferred firearm The Island Armory still requires payment of our transfer fee and this is non-returnable. You will be responsible for arranging return of the firearm(s) including covering return shipping.
If you choose to have us hold the weapon for a period of time till situation is cleared up there is a $5.00 per day storage fee charged 14 days from the date of denial. This price may seem steep, however we are taking the liability of holding onto the firearm during the time. After 90 days the firearm becomes the property of The Island Armory.
The Island Armory will handle your outgoing transfer to another FFL for an online sale, we charge $40.00 plus the actual cost of shipping to handle this. Handguns must go UPS 2nd Day Air. You are responsible to handle all packaging of the item, we will need to see the firearm so we can obtain the serial number off of it in order to complete the transaction. You will need to have the receiving FFL's address and license information.
