SHIPPING A FIREARM – FFL’S AND TRANSFER OF OWNERSHIP

CoreEliteOps.com will ONLY transfer ownership of a firearm to individuals or agencies in possession of a valid Federal Firearms License (FFL). This means we cannot ship directly to you unless you are an FFL holder.
If you do not hold a valid FFL, CoreEliteOps.com will transfer your purchased firearm to your choice of a licensed gun dealer in your state.
It is your responsibility:
  • to ensure that a firearm is legal to own in your state.
  • to contact the FFL if they’re a non-preferred dealer. CoreEliteOps.com preferred dealers will take any/all of our shipments without prior contact.
  • to complete all required paperwork when you pick up your purchase from your local dealer
Be aware that it is customary for your local dealer to charge a transfer fee at the time you pick up your purchase. This transfer fee is strictly between you and your local dealer. Please check with your local dealer concerning their policies. You do not pay CoreEliteOps.com the transfer fee.
The buyer is responsible for contacting their transferring FFL to request they send a copy of their FFL to us. If you are using a Buds Preferred FFL dealer, we will already have the FFL on file.
Our contact information is as follows:

SHIPPING

Firearms ship FREE at CoreEliteOps.com. This excludes long guns shipping to AK, HI, and PR. Our minimum $9 shipping charge will cover most accessories orders. Whenever possible, we will combine shipping for multiple small accessories on the same order. However, because certain accessories can be drop shipped from various warehouses, the shipping rates may increase. Any accessory shipped from another warehouse will incur an additional $5.00 increase in the base shipping cost. Shipping insurance is offered at a rate of $1 per $100 of the ordered item(s) value and is optional. CoreEliteOps.com is not responsible for uninsured items lost or damaged in transit.

You can preview the order including the ship to address, and the shipping charge before you click to confirm your order. The shipping and handling charge covers the cost of standard shipping.
