SHIPPING A FIREARM - FFL'S AND TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP
Gevas Defense will ONLY transfer ownership of a firearm to individuals or agencies in possession of a valid Federal Firearms License (FFL). This means we cannot ship directly to you unless you are an FFL holder.
If you do not hold a valid FFL, Gevas Defense will transfer your purchased firearm to your choice of a licensed gun dealer in your state.
It is your responsibility:
to ensure that a firearm is legal to own in your state.
to contact the FFL if they're a non preferred dealer. Gevas Defense preferred dealers will take any/all of our shipments without prior contact.
to complete all required paperwork when you pick up your purchase from your local dealer
Be aware that it is customary for your local dealer to charge a transfer fee at the time you pick up your purchase. This transfer fee is strictly between you and your local dealer. Please check with your local dealer concerning their policies. You do not pay Gevas Defense the transfer fee. Certain dealers also apply sales tax. This is between you and your FFL dealer. Gevas Defense only collects sales tax if you reside in the state of NV.
The buyer is responsible for contacting their transferring FFL to request they send a copy of their FFL to us.

NEW FIREARM RETURNS

Once a new firearm is transferred to you, the transaction is considered complete. Consequently, we cannot accept returns on firearms once they have been transferred into your possession. Also, we DO NOT reimburse FFL transfer fees on returned items. **Upon discovering a defect AFTER the transfer, the firearm MUST be returned directly to the the manufacturer for replacement or repair (in accordance with manufacturer's warranty policy). By sending a defective firearm directly to the manufacturer, you can avoid the unnecessary transfer fees associated with returning the firearm to us through your local FFL dealer. Manufacturer repaired firearms can be returned directly to the customer without additional FFL transfer or associated fees. Transfer fees will accrue if the firearm is transferred through us.
