In Store Gun Sale Required ID

A CURRENT VALID STATE OF MAINE DRIVERS LICENSE OR STATE PICTURE ID IS REQUIRED FOR ALL OF THOSE WHO PURCHASE A FIREARM THROUGH US. PLEASE MAKE SURE THEY HAVE YOUR CURRENT PHYSICAL ADDRESS ON THEM AND THEY ARE NOT EXPIRED. IF NOT YOU WILL NEED A CURRENT MAINE VEHICLE REGISTRATION, CURRENT VALID MAINE RESIDENT HUNTING LICENSE, CURRENT VALID MAINE TEMP DRIVERS LICENSE (ONLY IF YOUR ORIGINAL DRIVERS LICENSE OR STATE PHOTO ID IS NOT EXPIRED) OR CURRENT VALID MAINE CONCEALED WEAPONS PERMIT WITH YOUR CURRENT PHYSICAL ADDRESS ON IT (Must have photo). NO PO BOXES.  We do not sell to non residents of Maine or Non US citizens. Our policy requires that you must be Maine resident and a United States citizen for us to sell or transfer a firearm to you.

Not a Maine resident or US citizen?:
We do not do sell firearms or offer firearm transfers to non residents of Maine or Non US citizens. Our policy requires that you must be Maine resident and a United States citizen for us to do a transfer or sell a firearm. We do not accept immigrant visa's, Alien, or Admission numbers.

DELAYED
:
If the background check status is delayed. You must pay for the firearm in FULL or the firearm will not be held.

We use the Brady Transfer Date as the rule for when we transfer a firearm to an unlicensed person whom is showing in delay as status of their background check.
Why? We transfered a firearm to someone after 3 days as an FFL can do and on the Brady Transfer Date (one day later) we received a denied answer. For this reseon we will no longer use the 3 day option. We are here to provide a service and to protectect the public from those that should not have firearms for this reason our policy has changed. There are no exceptions to this policy.

A Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) will receive the following instructions when a call is transferred from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Contracted Call Center to the FBI Criminal Justice Information Services Division’s NICS Section for a transaction resulting in a delay:

“—NTN— is delayed while the NICS continues its research. If you do not receive a response from us, the Brady Law does not prohibit you from transferring the firearm on ___ day/date ___.”

We have the right to wait for the Brady Transfer date or not to transfer at all. - If the FFL has not received a final determination from the NICS after three business days have elapsed since the delay response, it is within the FFL’s discretion whether or not to transfer the firearm (if state law permits the transfer). If the FFL transfers the firearm, the FFL must check “no resolution was provided within three business days” on line 21d of the ATF Form 4473.

Used Firearms

All used firearms or other used merchandise is inspected and cleaned by our staff to insure its "safe" and dependable functionality. All used merchandise is sold "as is" and no warranties are made.

Firearms Mark up:
We offer a low profit margin on firearms. While other shops say they mark up firearms a certain percentage across the board we other fixed profit margins. We mark up our firearms from $25 to $50 dollars in most cases with most middle of the road guns marked up $40. That is roughly 20% on on the lowest priced items and as low as 5% on more expensive firearms.  Yes our profit margin goes down as the price of the firearm goes up.

IN STORE Special Orders:

If paying cash the item must be paid in full before we order it. If paying by credit or debit the item must be paid in full before we order it. This policy is due to guns that have been orded and never picked up or guns that have sat here for a very long time before being picked up with only a small portion of money down.

TRADING IN A FIREARM? Please note when considering trading in a firearm we do not take in every firearm that walks in th door. It depends on what we have in stock, if it is a hard to sell model, a firearm that is known to have problems or a recall, the time of year, and the condition of the firearm. Firearms that we are highly likely to take in are old, antique, vintage, or military firearms. Older lever action rifles. Older Colt, Ruger or Smith revolvers. Pre 64 firearms. We do take newer production firearms but it depends on what you have. WE DO NOT BUY ***No modern muzzleloaders, reproduction firearms, sporterized firearms, firearms with upgraded or modified triggers, AR15's or AR10's that are not factory made (No individually made, locally or non locally made custom AR's), handguns with stippled or modified frames, firearms with non factory Cerakoted or Duracoated finish, Jennings firearms, Bryco firearms, Kimber firearms, Benelli firearms, Stoeger firearms, reloaded ammunition, used optics or bows please*** (We only make exceptions when buying estate collections) When dealing with buying estate collections we will buy them all.  See more info click here

Holding Firearms:
 

We will not hold any firearm until a cash deposit it made on the firearm. (we will not hold firearms by phone) We will not hold a firearm more than 7 days. If it is longer than 7 days then you would need to go through our layaway plan. PLEASE CLICK HERE TO SEE OUR LAYAWAY POLICY or see the link on our home page.

If you have a long drive to get here and you want a firearm held for the length of time it will take you to get here we can do that. Call, message through Facebook, or email us. We will not hold a firearm more than 4 hours. 4 hours should be sufficient for travel from most parts of the state. We will not take pre payments by phone or credit card holds by phone. The firearm will not be held until I actual reply to your message and confirm.

Firearms SOLD OUT / COMING SOON:

If a firearm shows SOLD OUT or COMING SOON on the website we will be restocking the firearm as soon as one is available or  when it is the season to restock the firearm. If the firearm shows SOLD OUT or COMING SOON go to our SEE OUR COMING SOON PAGE on this website to see if the firearm has been ordered for restock. There is a list of firearms in shipment to us. These firearms are first come first serve. No pre payments, cash or credit card holds will be accepted. It does not hurt to ask if you can special order a firearm. It might be we just chose not to restock.

Consignment
:
 

We offer consignment at 15% for items sold in the shop or 20% for items sold on Gun Broker plus any auction fees that apply. Online selling requires a lot of picture taking, time listing the items, answering questions, sending an invoice, processing payments, and shipping the item. 

If the item does not sell we will must perform a background check to return the item or items back to you. A $15 cash or $20 cc transfer fee will apply when the background check is done. Multiple handgun transfers will have an additional $15 cash or $20 cc fee applied. Items that were to be sold online that did not sell will be subject to Gun Broker auction listing fees (are not that much if it does not sell) and a $20.00 fee for my time listing the item in addition to the transfer fee.

We do purchase firearms as well.

Pawn

We are not a Pawn Shop but we do purchase firearms.

Firearms Storage
:
 

We do not offer this service to out of state residents. FYI If you drop any handgun off to a dealer in Maine you will not be able to get it back (if you are not a Maine resident) without sending it back to an FFL in your state. At that point a transfer would have to be performed. We can only sell or transfer handguns to state of Maine residents. In order to get your firearm back you would have to go through a background check. Background checks can only be legally done on handguns for Maine residents. Long guns are ok to perform storage and can be reclaimed only if the firearm is legal in your state of residence. We do not perform this service.

Shipping Firearms
:  

We do offer shipping of firearms to licensed dealers. We prefer to ship handguns but we will ship long guns as long as we have a box available to do so. Long guns are much more time consuming to package (reinforcing the barrel end so it does not break through the end of the box) and there is a lot to think of when packaging them. If you want to package them yourself but leave the box open so I can access the make, model, caliber, and serial number that is a possibility. The length, width, height, and weight of a package can dramatically effect the cost of shipping. 

- The cost to package a handgun is $15.00 per firearm plus $25.00 for Priority shipping on a standard length handgun. Handguns must be shipped via a 2 or 3 day service. Handguns cannot be shipped via standard ground shipping. Insurance is about a $1.00 or $1.50 per $100 value. If you are shipping more that one handgun the shipping cost may change depending on several factors.

- The cost to package a long gun is $25.00 per firearm (assuming I have the box to do so) plus $35.00 - $60.00 for standard ground shipping depending on the length, width, height, and weight of the package. Destination is also a consideration. Insurance is about a $1.00 or $1.50 per $100 value.  If you are shipping more that one long gun the cost may change depending on several factors. You can package the long guns up yourself but I need to be able to pull them out of the packaging in order to get information off the firearms.

We will only ship firearms to the lower 48 states. No shipping to Alaska or Hawaii. 

We must have a copy of your dealers license on file in order to ship a firearm to them. Firearms cannot be shipped to private party.

CHILDREN

Endangering  the welfare of a child is a crime. If you leave a firearm and ammunition within easy access of a child, you may be subject to a fine, imprisonment or both. Keep firearms and ammunition separate. Keep firearms and ammunition locked up. Use trigger locks.
