If you are ordering a firearm or AR15 Lower Receiver please follow these steps:
Failure to follow this guide may result in additional order delays.
California Customer Prerequisite:
You MUST contact your dealer PRIOR to placing an order to ensure the legality of the firearm you are wanting to purchase. Any returned firearms will be assessed a 15% restocking fee.
Check to see if your preferred local dealer is already on file by reviewing the list on our FFL Locator page.
If your dealer is already on file, sigh with relief. This is going to be easy! You can stop after step 2!
If your dealer is not on file, no worries! Submitting a new dealer is not hard. Make sure to follow all of the steps listed below.
When you checkout with a firearm in your cart, you will need to put YOUR credit card billing address in the billing address section. Make sure that you have NOT checked the boxed notating your billing and shipping addresses are the same.
In the shipping fields, put THEIR first and last name in the shipping address name fields, as many dealers prefer to have the customer’s name on the outside of the box. Then put THEIR information in the “company” fields. Our site does not pre-fill the FFL information into the shipping address. The locator just lets you know whether or not you need to submit additional paperwork.
At this point please double check your order for accuracy, and then enter in your payment information on our secured checkout page and hit “Place Order.” If your dealer was not on file prior to ordering, see step 3.
Please have your local FFL dealer send us their license ASAP to ensure no delays with your order. The best way to further ensure no delays with your order is to make sure your dealer references your order # and/or name when submitting the FFL license. The dealer can send the license one of three ways:
- Fax: 888-218-5749
- Email: email@example.com
- Online Upload* Click here for KSCA FFL License Upload Form
*You will also be given this optional upload form for licenses after you complete checkout.
If your dealer requires a copy of our license or verification of us being a valid FFL holder, they can download a copy of our FFL license here: KSCA’s FFL License.
Once your order has been shipped you will receive email tracking updates. If there is a problem with your order, or there was an issue with submitting the FFL license, we will contact you to ensure your order ships out ASAP.
When your firearm arrives at your FFL dealer’s location, you will be able to fill-out the background check at that time. Please contact your local dealer if you have any questions regarding the legalities of owning a firearm BEFORE you order, as laws do vary by state.
Once an FFL dealer is added to our system, we keep them on file for easier checkouts in the future. Thank you for using our “How to Guide: Ordering a Firearm.”
