How to Own Class III Weapons
Effective 1-1-2013, We no longer transfer directly to individuals, corporations, or family trust, unless you have an active Texas Concealed Handgun License. We are happy to assist you in locating a qualified dealer in your area to receive your weapon, if you do not. In addition, we offer free of charge assistance to your dealer, guidance in the proper execution of the federal paperwork required to transfer the weapon to you.
Our prices are based on full payment up front. For partial payments or 50 / 50 payments, a surcharge will be added. Typically 5% to 10%. Full payment or deposit is due when you receive the forms required to transfer the weapon to you or your corporation. While these forms are being processed, the weapon will be removed from the market. There typically is a sizeable sum of money involved in NFA weapon transactions and this is where a reputable Class 3 dealer will stand out. If you commit to a weapon or weapons, verbally or otherwise, it will be our intent to take your word as a contractual agreement. Make sure that when you commit to us, that you understand that you are agreeing to purchase these weapons. Any deviation from your commitment will be considered breach of contract. While it will typically not be our intent to pursue you legally, it certainly will land you in the "Penalty Box" on our web page. After many years in business, we still feel that a personís word is as good as gold. Any deviation from your agreement with us will not be taken lightly and your name will added to our "Penalty Box". There will be no exceptions to this rule. Weapons purchased from us will be held, unfired, untouched, in a secure, central alarmed vault. Feel free to contact us for references or check them anywhere.
Once the approved forms are returned from the BATF, you will be notified. If your purchase is to be shipped to another dealer, we require that a signed copy of his / her FFL and SOT be on file. We also required that you authorize the shipment to them in writing. A phone number will be required for both you and your dealer. This is required for the Fed-X shipping label and to keep you informed. A "minimum" restocking charge of 25% will be assessed on any weapon purchase that is reversed. Prices "DO NOT" include freight or insurance. This is your responsibility. Be advised that most shippers do not honor weapon claims, unless they were properly insured and shipped overnight. Customers who transfer weapons into our inventory will be subject to transfer and storage fees that will be determined before said transfer takes place. Any customer weapon left in our inventory over 1 year from the date of receipt by Western Firearms Company, will be sold for storage charges and handling fees.
If you have questions, please call. We do not charge for packing and usually hand carry shipments to the Dallas / Fort Worth Airport Fed-X office in person. It is our intention to be as fair as possible to everyone. We do not accept credit card charges on NFA weapons.
