How to Buy a Gun Online

How to Buy a Gun Online

  1. Add the firearm to your shopping cart and purchase the firearm just as you would any other item on our website. If you want parts and accessories shipped directly to you rather than your local dealer, please order those separately from any firearms.
  2. If you already know which local dealer you would like to receive your firearm, you may input their information in the order comments section while checking out. It is your responsibility to contact your dealer and have them send a copy of their license. Most dealers want the customer to contact them and not us. If your dealer requires us to contact them, please let us know and we will be happy to do so.
  3. Because we focus on obtaining and stocking some of the more difficult to obtain items, we recommend purchasing your firearm as soon as you know you want it rather than searching for a local dealer first. This ensures that the firearm is reserved for you and does not allow anyone else to purchase it out from under you. You may search for a local dealer and forward us their information when you have it.
  4. Please note that dealers will charge a fee for the transfer service and this fee can vary significantly from one dealer to the next. You are responsible for paying this fee directly to your receiving dealer. It is not included in the purchase price.
  5. If you do not have a dealer chosen and need to find one, please use one of the references below to help find one in your area. Handguns and NFA weapons must be transferred to you in your state of residence, however rifles may be transferred to you in other states if your state laws allow it. Please do not simply choose a dealer from our list without first contacting them. We try to keep our list up-to-date but if a dealer does not contact us to update their information then we cannot be certain the information is correct. We always validate the status of a dealer's license prior to shipping each firearm, however a dealer may have gone out of business and not yet informed ATF, they may have moved and not had their license updated yet, or they could have simply decided to stop accepting transfers.

    Please note that you are responsible for determining whether a firearm or any other restricted items are legal for you to own in your area. If you have any questions we will try to help.

If you do not have a dealer selected and need help finding one, you may use one of the below searches to find a dealer in your area. You are responsible for contacting the dealer to determine their pricing and availability for the transfer service. Any information on either searches below are subject to being out of date.

  • To search the list of dealers already¬†on file with Lanbo's Armory click here. These dealers are on file but it is your responsibility to verify pricing and availability of the dealer.
  • To search the Gunbroker list of dealers click here. The dealers listed here may not be on file with Lanbo's Armory and it would be your responsibility to have them send a copy of their license to us before we can ship your order.

How to Buy a NFA Weapon Online

The steps for purchasing a silencer (sound suppressor) or short-barreled rifle (SBR) online are the same as purchasing a firearm above. However your receiving dealer must possess a Special Occupational Taxpayer (SOT) special tax stamp to deal in NFA weapons. Some important information to know before placing your order:

  • Before being able to take possession of your NFA weapon, you will have to fill out the appropriate ATF paperwork (known as a form 4) and submit it to ATF. Your receiving dealer will help you fill out this form properly, but when filing the form as an individual you must obtain the signature of your chief law enforcement officer. Corporations, LLCs, and Trusts do not require this signature but you must include your articles of incorporation or your trust paperwork.
  • For each and every NFA weapon you purchase, you will have to pay a $200 tax to ATF to receive the tax stamp for each device.
  • Forms may be submitted online to ATF (this is preferred) and this will greatly reduce the wait time to receive your NFA weapon.
  • NFA weapons are legal to own in most states. Please check with your receiving dealer for local laws concerning NFA weapons before purchasing. If you are unsure, please contact us before making a purchase.
  • ATF must approve the transfer of every NFA weapon, including the transfer from us to your dealer. For items we have in stock in our shop, wait times we are seeing are about 2-3 days (as of 2/14/2020) before ATF approves the transfer to your dealer. Once your dealer has it, you may submit your form 4 paperwork. If your item is not in stock with our shop but is instead a warehouse item, it will delay the ship time by an additional 2-3 days (approximately). These times can and will vary.
  • Payment in full must be made before we will submit any paperwork. If you are denied or otherwise cannot complete the transfer, your order is subject to our regular restocking fees. We will not process any refunds or store credit until the NFA weapon has been returned to us from your dealer. Please note that some dealers allow customers to use NFA weapons (in their presence) during this waiting period. We cannot and will not issue a refund or store credit for NFA weapons returned used.
