    Unlicensed Buyers

    If you do not have an FFL, you can still buy a gun through Allan 's Armory. To do this, find an 01FFL dealer in your area and do what is called a "transfer." The 01FFL dealer will send me their FFL, you send me the payment, I ship the gun to them, and you do what is required by law, in your area, to have the gun transferred to you. Dealers’ transfer fees range anywhere from $10 to $75, depending on where you live and who they are. It pays to shop around and phone different gun dealers, pawnshops, gun shops, gunsmiths, etc., and ask them the charge for their fee.

    Shipping Rates

    1. Shipping charges for a long gun is $22 regular ground * for the first gun and $10 each for additional gun on the same order to a business address (01 FFL dealer). There is an additional charge of $3 for all non-business home deliveries to 03 FFLs. Sorry, but we can no longer absorb this extra UPS charge. Long guns will be shipped UPS only.

    2. Shipping charges for handguns via UPS 2nd Day Air is $30 for the first gun and $10 each for additional gun on the same order. There is an additional charge of $3 for all non-business home deliveries to 03 FFLs.

    * All long guns costing over $200 must be shipped in a hard case at a cost of $15 per case in addition to the $22 shipping charge. For long guns costing under $200, this is optional. Due to the rough treatment during shipping, I find it necessary to ship rifles of a this or higher value with this extra protection. It protects your purchase and if there is damage, UPS will pay without claiming poor packing. You do get a $30 case for only $15 (my cost), so this is NOT a fee or extra income for me. This is NOT a cheap case that can barely hold a carbine. These hard cases are made extra tall and wide enough to hold scoped rifles or shotguns up to 52" in length (unless you buy a short rifle/shotgun, then the case may be slightly shorter). It is foam lined, has a strong ribbed hull design, a large carry handle, is pad lockable, has strong latches with steel pins, and four secure recessed latches. These cases will come in handy for any expensive modern hunting rifle or mil surp you want to protect.

    Return Policy

    If there is any "unadvertised" mechanical or cosmetic problem with an item we send you, please email us ASAP and the problem will be taken care of. We will pay shipping costs if the item needs to be returned due to a legitimate problem. There is a THREE DAY NON SHOOTING examination period. After that, the gun is yours and can only be returned at our discretion and under extraordinary circumstances. The firearm may only be taken apart by a certified gunsmith. we will not accept a return if it's been tampered with by someone unqualified to do so.

    Unfortunately, there have been a very small minority of buyers who abused this policy. In cases like these, I will not pay for any shipping costs and these returns will be subject to a 15% restocking fee. This charge will be implemented at my discretion.

    Sorry about this, but when an item is returned due to a customer's mistake; I still have to cover the costs of paper work, packing, and web administration fees.


    If I sell you anything that is not as good as or better than described (mechanics and cosmetics), I will refund your purchase price and pay shipping both ways.

    We do not headspace or take metallurgical tests of each specimen. If we did, each piece would be priced out of market to you. Unless a firearm is advertised as a "wall hanger," it being sold as shootable and should at least pass a field gauge headspace test. We expect the collector to know that he should have any surplus firearm checked by a competent gunsmith before taking it to the range and blazing away. We do, however, check mechanical function as far as possible.

    Unlike the big distributors and most dealers, we do not sell guns based on a wide condition range (like Good to Very Good). For each item we sell, we grade each firearm individually, noting the wood, metal, bore condition, matching numbers, pitting, and even the presence or absence of items such as cleaning rods. When it comes to buying a shooter/collector firearm, bore condition is of utmost importance. I take care in describing the bore in detail. First, I describe the condition of the lands (raised part of rifling) which is an indicator of bore wear. Then I describe the condition of the grooves as to whether they are shiny, pitted, dark, full of debris, etc. A rifle having sharp lands (not very worn) is more important than how shiny a bore is. If the grooves are described as "frosted," this means they still shine, but are not mirror bright. This is due to the metals surface having microscopic pitting vs. being totally smooth, much like a matte stainless steel gun vs. a highly polished one.

    While we take great care to individually describe each piece, our general criteria and rating system is:

    • New – unissued.

    • Excellent -- slightly used, few or no dings in wood, bluing remaining, slight edge wear possible.

    • Very good -- some dings in wood, most bluing remaining, and no pitting unless noted.

    • Good -- dinged/some damage to wood, but no cracks. Some bluing, may have minor pitting.

    • Fair -- well worn.

    Thanks for thinking of us and thank you for your patronage!
