ANTIQUES on the Side, FFL

We are also a Federal Firearms Dealer.  Please contact me before you list me as your FFL to make sure I will be available to receive and transfer the firearm for you.  We specialize in incoming or outgoing firearm transfers and online firearm purchases for our customers.  We have accounts with several firearm wholesalers, so if you know what you want, let us get a price for you.  We are located one mile from the Isabella County Sportsman's Club.  Pick up your firearm from us and be on the range in minutes.  Our fee structure is as follows:

  • Incoming sale transfer fee - $25
        >  Plus any special applicable fees
  • Outgoing sale transfer fee - $25
        >  Plus $10 for OUR packaging
        >  Plus ACTUAL shipping cost

How does a transfer work? - If you have a Michigan Concealed Pistol License (CPL) the transfer form can be filled out when you pick up the firearm.  If you do not have a CPL, make an appointment to stop by and complete the transfer form.  In most cases I can do the NICS background check before you leave.  If the NICS check is fine you then complete the purchase with your seller and give me their email address.  I will send them a copy of my FFL license and they will ship the firearm to me.  When it arrives I notify you and you stop over to pick it up.  Be sure to bring your driver's license and your CPL if you have one.  The fee is $25 cash or credit card for the transfer.  Buy more than one gun on the same transfer and each additional gun is $20. 

So, if you are ready to do a transfer, email me at:

       We offer the convenience of payment for your in-store purchases with most major credit cards through the Square credit card payment system.
