Contrary to popular belief, you can not purchase a firearm online and have it shipped to your home. Before your order is shipped, you must pick out an “FFL” in your area willing to accept your firearm shipment and complete your transfer. Firearms can only be shipped to a FFL Dealer. Once the receiving FFL has received your firearm, they will conduct a background check (ATF Form 4473) and complete the transfer of the firearm to you. There is normally a small fee associated with this.
A “FFL” is a Federal Firearms License. Many pawn shops, sporting good stores and gun stores hold a FFL. There are some individuals that hold a FFL also. Any firearm sold to an individual must be shipped to a FFL holder who will then complete the transfer of the firearm. (ATF Form 4473 and background check)
The average transfer fee ranges from $25-$45 nation wide. For the exact transfer fee, please contact your chosen FFL and arrange payment with them at the time of transfer.
We strive very hard to keep prices as low as possible for our customers. Our website and inventory updates many times a day. We do not manually price each item listed for sell, but rather use a live stream of inventory and price feeds from our network of distributors and manufacturers. This is what sets our selling prices. Cost changes up and down through out the course of business. Due to these changes, sometimes our selling prices on items will change although our markup stays the same. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions regarding this.

Returns/Defective Products/ Firearms
**No Returns on USED Firearms.

New Firearms can be returned within ten (10) days after the end user transfer is complete only if the firearm has NEVER been fired. **After 1 bullet had been fired through the firearm, it is considered an used firearm** In the event of a return/refund on a NEW firearm, full refund will be given, minus twenty percent (20%) restocking fee. All defective firearms must be returned to the manufacturer for service and/or repairs. Polk City Munitions is not responsible for any cost asserted with this. All other items, non firearm related, can be returned fifteen (15) days after delivery was made, so as long as the item(s) are still in NEW condition, and the original package is still intact.
All firearm transactions must have a background check completed before you can take possession of the firearm. Your dealer will have you complete ATF Form 4473 and will send in your info over to the FBI NICS. This is a really simple process and normally your dealer will have an answer with in minutes. Please also check your state and/or local regulations also as they may have additional requirements.
Please allow 3-5 business days for orders to process and ship. We really try to ship orders in 1-3 business days. Certain firearms may require additional time depending on the state that you are in due to current laws and/or regulations.
