FFL & Private Party Transfers  

Sterling Arsenal is pleased to accept transfers (inbound and outbound) from our Preferred Dealers and dozens of other dealers around the country. We also accept transfers directly from private individuals.

We recommend however that you first contact us to check pricing and availability of firearms that we have in stock, manufacture (e.g. AR15 platforms), or can otherwise order direct from our expansive network of national and regional distributor and manufacturer industry partners. We are competitive, especially on premium firearms, after you consider shipping and other fees. 

Sterling Arsenal reserves the right to reject transfers from dealers that sell new production or imported firearms at prices below minimum advertised pricing (MAP) or dealer price lists which would violate our own industry dealer agreements.
