Transferring a firearm to 7 SIGMA ARMS is very easy.  The seller you purchase the firearm(s) from is going to need a copy of our FFL in order to ship to us. Upon request, we can e-mail them a copy of it, or you can send it to them via the link above. The seller will then ship the firearm to us for you to pick up. Along with the shipment the seller needs to include a copy of their FFL (their FFL number on an invoice is also acceptable) or a copy of their driver's license/State ID if they are not an FFL. We can not check the firearm into our books unless we have this information.

If we have not processed a transfer for you in the past, please send us an email letting us know that you have something on the way and include a picture of your FOID card. info@7SigmaArms.com
It's always a good idea to give us a heads up that something is on the way since some shippers do not put the customer's name in the box.


After the firearm has arrived and been processed into our books we will contact you via email to schedule a time to come by. Pickup is by appointment only. When you visit, here is the process:

1. Bring a copy of your valid FOID card. If the address on your FOID card is not your current address you will need to present an ID that does have your 
current address (driver's license or state ID)

2. Fill out the Federal Form 4473. This is done electronically on a computer here. Do not bring your own prefilled form as it is against BATF rules.

3. Once the 4473 has been reviewed and approved by us, we will run the background check. Once the background check clears, you pay the transfer fee and receive your firearm. 30-40% of background checks do not get instantly approved and receive a delay which usually takes the state 2-3 business days to clear. This means there's a 30-40% chance you will have to come back at a later date to pick up the firearm. No additional fees apply. Although we can not run the background check until you visit in person and fill out the 4473 form, you are able to visit prior to the firearm being delivered and fill out the form and start the process ahead of time.

A common question is if the purchaser has to wait the mandatory 72 hours after filling out the 4473 for a transfer. This is a common misconception in the industry. The mandatory wait starts when the buyer and seller agree on the transaction terms and price, not when the buyer fills out form 4473 and the background check clears. This means that the 72 hours are usually long gone by the time we receive the shipment from the seller. There are enough laws/rules already. We don't need to make up any more.


TRANSFERS WILL BE HELD FOR 90 DAYS UNLESS A LONGER TIME IS APPROVED IN WRITING. ANY FIREARM LEFT AFTER 90 DAYS WILL BECOME OUR PROPERTY AND WILL BE SOLD OR DESTROYED.
