Silver Bullet Gun Works: Transfers
Silver Bullet Gun Works is your most affordable source for firearm transfers in the Northern Nevada area! Please read the following and check the box at the bottom, it should answer all your questions!
PLEASE NOTE: The State of Nevada Dept of Taxation has determined that Nevada sales tax must be collected on all firearm purchases when they are delivered to Nevada residents, unless the seller has collected sales tax from the buyer. In addition, the State has determined that we, as a retailer, must include the purchase price you paid the out of state seller in our gross receipts submitted to the State of Nevada (as if we sold you the firearm). This in essence requires us to misrepresent our gross sales, and creates a discrepancy between our State tax return and our Federal tax return. THIS ISSUE AFFECTS ALL FIREARM DEALERS WHO PERFORM TRANSFERS IN THE STATE OF NEVADA.
There has been recent discussion of this topic in Carson City, and the Dept of Taxation has determined that this is the “correct” process by which business is to be conducted, citing NRS 372.055 & 372.050 (enacted in 1955, long before the concept of the internet existed). Further details of the State's ruling may be found online in the Nevada Dept of Taxation Tax Bulletin: SUT 15-0001, dated January 26, 2015.
Please note that we cannot deliver your firearm to you unless we have a receipt from the seller showing sales tax was paid to the out of state seller, or we collect it on the State's behalf at the time we deliver your firearm. If the firearm was a gift and no money or barter has been exchanged, we need a signed declaration from the sender stating that. We cannot accept “tax exempt” resale certificates unless you are an FFL licensee.
Please understand that we do not agree with the sales tax mandate, but are legally required to comply with it.
Our policy and fee structure for transfers:
Receiving Prices: $50 per firearm (plus tax & background). We offer a reduced rate of $40 each for active duty military, police and firefighters with valid ID.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the nature of being forced to collect sales tax on items that we did not sell, and the expense of credit card fees we pay to processors, all transfer fees and sales tax collected for incoming transfers will be CASH OR CHECK ONLY.
Shipping prices: There is a transfer fee of $20 per firearm and discounted to $10 for law enforcement and military. $20 for handguns or $40 long guns. We will combine shipping whenever possible. Please bring your firearms in UNSEALED packages, or we can provide packing and shipping boxes for you. Shipping is ONLY TO CONFIRMED FFL DEALERS, and must be in full compliance with local, state and federal laws where they are being shipped to.
Yes, we can ship California compliant firearms to California! There is an additional fee of $20 for ALL shipping to CA.
Please fill out the form on the right side of this page PRIOR to having firearms shipped to the store. We will send our FFL directly to your seller if you provide us with an invoice or auction number, your name, and the type of firearm. Please note that we only release copies of our FFL to other FFL holders. If your seller is a private party, they can ship directly to us if they provide a clear copy of their drivers license or state ID along with a bill of sale.
Our FFL status can be verified at https://www.atfonline.gov/fflezcheck/ by entering our partial license number: 9-88 XXXXXXX -04244 We have encountered occasional problems with the ATF website, if it doesn't verify please reload the page, fill in the boxes again and resubmit.
Firearms will be released the NEXT BUSINESS DAY once they have been received by us. This is to allow us time to process your firearm and insure your paperwork is in order. PLEASE DO NOT CALL TO SEE IF YOUR FIREARM WILL BE READY EARLIER, or to confirm delivery, etc. We try to contact every customer when their firearm is ready.
