Sterling Arsenal accepts (inbound / outbound) firearm transfers (from / to) our Preferred Dealer Network and dozens of other licensed dealers from across the country. We also accept transfers directly from private individuals.
Contact us first to check pricing and availability of firearms that we already have in-stock at the shop -- in particular AR rifles, Beretta, Sig Sauer, Glock, Smith & Wesson, Kimber, Colt, Remington, FNH, H&K, etc. Our in-stock pricing is competitive, especially on premium firearms, after you consider in-shop discount programs, shipping and other fees -- call us!
Sterling Arsenal reserves the right to reject transfers from dealers that sell new production firearms at prices below minimum advertised pricing (MAP) or other price schedules which would violate our own industry stocking dealer agreements.
