Buying a Gun Online


Reflex Firearms facilitates the legal exchange of firearms and accessories between adults. It is legal to buy and sell firearms in the US, provided you adhere to federal, state and local laws. 

Transfer of firearms ownership requires an FFL holder:

A Federal Firearms License (FFL) transfer dealer is required for the transfer of firearms ownership between individuals.

Buyers should either have a FFL or find a FFL (GunBroker Find an FFL) in their local area to receive and manage the transfer of the item for them before they purchase an item. This typically means the buyer must contact a local FFL transfer dealer to make arrangements for the transfer.

Please review the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) FAQ about transferring ownership of firearms by unlicensed persons:
