Transfer Services

Interstate Transfer Services

We will gladly accept firearm transfers from out of state FFL’s as well as private individuals. The fee for this service is $40 including the PICS background check. Please contact us to arrange to have a copy of our FFL sent to the shipping dealer and to arrange for receipt of the firearm.


Firearm Shipping

By law, handguns and handgun frames may not be shipped by or to an individual via USPS and must be shipped by a common carrier such as UPS or FedEx. As these carriers usually require handguns be shipped via the most expensive means (priority overnight) the cost of shipping a handgun quickly becomes untenable. We can help! With our discounted FedEx second day rates we can offer handgun shipping rates as low as $40.


Person to Person Pistol Transfers

Pennsylvania requires personal sales of handguns and some other firearms with barrels under 16″ to be transferred through dealers and have the necessary background checks completed. We off this service at a nominal $30 per firearm. If transferring multiple firearms, the first firearm is $30 and up to 4 additional can be completed at $15 each. If transferring more than 5 firearms at a time (as is common in the case of an estate) we ask that you call ahead for an appointment and bulk transfer rates.



How To Ship Your Gun For Service

Once you have made the (very good) choice to send your firearm to Allegheny Gun Works for service or customization you should follow these steps to ensure it arrives in an efficient and trouble-free manner.

  • Pack up your firearm to prepare it for shipment. Ensure it is unloaded, and do not send any bags, cases, or accessories not required for the work you want performed. A generous amount of bubble wrap is best. Please include either a printed estimate (if provided) or a note listing your full name, address, phone number, and email address as well what specific work you’d like done. Next place the firearm and paperwork in a suitable sized box and tape it up well.

  • Contact us to arrange for shipping by FedEx 2-day air. We have a long-standing relationship and trust FedEx more than other carriers. Please provide the dimensions of the box you have selected, your full name, address, phone number, and email address.

  • Drop off the package at any FedEx pickup location convenient to you, or call 1-800-GO-FEDEX to schedule a pick-up at your location. Please note the tracking number provided to you as this will allow you to verify that your firearm has arrived at our facility. We will only call you if there is an issue with the delivery.

PLEASE NOTE! Your firearm must be returned to the address that it was shipped from originally. If this is an issue please let us know as soon as possible to make other arrangements!
