Next Level Armory is happy to help facilitate firearms transfers between other FFL dealers, as well as private parties, in accordance with North Carolina laws.
Unlike some other local retailers, we don’t believe in charging outrageous and punishing amounts for transfers simply because we couldn’t get what you needed, or you might have found a better deal elsewhere.
However, if you have your eye on a new firearm and are thinking of having it transferred to you, please check with us first. We deal directly with major distributors and have access to thousands of guns from most manufacturers. Once purchased from us, we can usually have your firearm(s) ready for pickup within 2-3 business days (if we don’t already have it in-store). While we can’t always match the big online gun dealers dollar-for-dollar, our prices are usually very competitive when you consider there are NO SHIPPING OR TRANSFER FEES when you order from us through our online shop (or just stop into the shop), and we can sometimes work with you on price.
But more importantly, it’s good to buy from us because we stand behind everything we sell. If there’s ever a problem with a firearm or piece of gear purchased from us, we’ll help make it right.
Transferring a Firearm to Us (Receiving Your Gun)
Fees: Just $20. If you are transferring multiple firearms at the same time, the charge is $15 for the second, and $10 for each after that (must all be picked up at same time).
Procedure: Reach out to us (via phone, email or Facebook Messenger) and let us know that you’ll be having a firearm shipped to us. Our street address can be found on the Home page or Contact page. Our FFL paperwork is already on record with many major online retailers, but if your seller does require a copy, please provide us with their email address and we will send it to them (sorry, we do not provide our FFL documents to you if you aren’t an FFL).
Please ensure your firearm is being shipped via UPS or FedEx. FIREARMS SHIPPED TO US VIA USPS WILL BE REFUSED. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Keep in mind that just because your tracking information shows your package has been delivered to us, that doesn’t mean that it is ready for pickup. Once your firearm has been properly processed and logged on our end, WE WILL CONTACT YOU to let you know it is ready to be picked up – usually within 24-48 hours.
To take possession of long guns you’ll need valid government issued ID, and either a valid NC Concealed Carry Permit, or pass the federal NICS background check.
To take possession of hand guns you’ll need valid government issued ID, and either a valid NC Concealed Carry Permit or valid Pistol Purchase Permit.
Please also note that by law, the address on your Pistol Purchase Permit or Concealed Carry Permit MUST MATCH your valid government-issued North Carolina ID in order to proceed with a transfer.
Transferring a Firearm to Another FFL (Shipping Your Gun)
Fees: Actual shipping cost plus $5 handling fee.
Procedure: Simply bring your packaged, ready-to-ship firearm to the shop and we’ll take care of the rest.
If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
