Firearm Transfers

A Federal Firearms License transfer is necessary when a person wishes to purchase a firearm from another private party, outside of the state they reside or from a geographically inconvenient FFL dealer. DCF Guns is here to help make this process easy.
Private Party Transfer
  • Valid driver’s license or identification card for both parties to include your current address. If your address has changed recently then you will need another government document reflecting your current address.
  • Proof of residence or a valid Colorado driver license or identification card is required for the recipient of all firearms other than a rifle or pistol. You must be an in-state resident in order to purchase or be the recipient of a firearm other than a shotgun or rifle.
  • Complete DCF Guns Private Party Bill of Sales form. Each recipient will receive a copy of this document for your records.
  • Recipient will complete a background check and pay the $10.50 Colorado Bureau of Investigations fee.
  • Upon successful completion of the background check a $45 transfer fee will be due to complete the transfer. (Ask us how you can get free transfers at DCF Guns with membership.)
Out-of-State Transfer
  • Email transfer@dcfguns.com with the sender’s information so that we can provide them with our Federal Firearms License and contact information.
  • DCF will contact you within 24 hours after your firearm arrives to let you know when it is ready to be picked up. It can take us up to 24 hours to process the firearm once it has been delivered.
  • Valid driver’s license or identification card in order to complete a background check. Proof of residence or valid Colorado driver’s license or identification card is required for all firearms other than rifles or shotguns.
  • Recipient will complete a background check and pay the $10.50 Colorado Bureau of Investigations fee.
  • Upon successful completion of the background check a $45 transfer fee will be due to complete the transfer. (Ask us how you can get free transfers at DCF Guns with membership.)
NFA Transfers are $75 for members and $150 for non-members. Please keep in mind this process will take longer due to the paperwork required for transferring NFA items between dealers.

Before purchasing your firearm online or with another dealer, be sure to visit one of our locations. We may be able to match or even beat the price and save you the transfer fee!
