If you're looking for information on our firearm transfer process, you're in the right place. Our experts at Centerfire Sports make the process smooth and straightforward. Here's what you need to know:

  • Nevada DPS Background Checks: The Nevada Department of Public Safety may experience delays of 1-3 business days with NICS background checks.
  • Important ATF Rule: Due to ATF's final rule 2021R-08F, we no longer accept transfers of firearms with a brace of any kind without approved NFA paperwork.
  • Contact Us First: Please do not ship a firearm to us without contacting us first to ensure a smooth process.
  • Acceptance Criteria: We only accept transfers from licensed FFL's and SOT's, and we do not facilitate private party transfers.
  • CCW Holders: If you have a current LVMPD issued Concealed Firearms Permit (CCW), you are exempt from NDPS background checks but still need to fill out Form 4473.
  • Bipartisan Safer Communities Act: Due to the Bipartisan Safer Communities Act of 2022, NICS transactions for persons aged 18-20 may take up to ten (10) business days.


Our pricing is transparent and affordable:

Customers without a current Nevada CCW: $25 per NICS background check.

Please Note:

  • If the seller or sender if the item does not collect Nevada sales tax, we are required by Nevada law to collect it. You must provide a valid receipt to determine if Nevada sales tax was collected.
  • If your background check is "Denied" or "Unresolved", the transaction will not proceed and you will be directed to the NV DPS website.
