Frequently Asked Questions:

How do I buy a gun online?

When you find a firearm that you are interested in purchasing, the first step is to make sure that it is legal for you to own. Gun laws vary from state to state. When you create a free account with us, your shipping options will automatically populate. Once your payment has been received, we will prep your order to be shipped. Firearms need to be shipped to a federally licensed firearms dealer (FFL) in your state. If you need help finding one, you can use our Locator during checkout to find one in your area. Dealers usually charge a small fee to process the transfer. We recommend that you contact the FFL to find out their pricing & procedures prior to selecting them. Items typically ship 1-2 business days after payment & FFL info have been received. When your package arrives, you will meet with your local FFL to complete the paperwork that is required where you reside.

Do you have a retail store?

We do not have a brick & mortar retail location. Local pickups, sales, & transfers are by appointment only. The best way to reach us is by e-mail - sales@860firearms.com 

If I buy something on another website or from an out-of-state dealer, can I have it sent to you?

Of course. Our transfer fee is $25.00. LEO/Military discounted price is $20.00. Please make sure that the item is legal for you to own prior to making the purchase. If you have any questions about the legality of the item, we are happy to assist. At this time, we are only accepting shipments from other FFL's. We will need the seller's contact information and your order or auction number so that we can make arrangements with them for shipment. 

Do you buy used guns or trade?

Yes. If you have a firearm that you are interested in selling or trading, please start by e-mailing us a few pictures of it. We ask that you include as much information as possible so that we can get you the best price for it. Make, model, condition, any upgrades/modifications, etc. If you have the original box and/or paperwork, that is helpful information as well. We do not buy ammo or accessories.
