FFL (Federal Firearms License) required purchases have an additional $10.00 processing fee.

Receivers, actions, and frame sales require an FFL and are only allowed with the strictest adherence to federal regulations. Such orders will be held at Brownells until we verify your FFL is on file.

FFL requirements are as follows:

  1. It must be a current, certified-copy with an original signature in ink!
  2. If it has been changed or altered in any way it will be considered invalid.
  3. FFL purchases will only be sent to the address on the FFL - no exceptions.
  4. We will keep your FFL on file until it expires, at which time you will need to send Brownells a renewed, certified copy.
