Alamo Online Purchase Policies
Firearms Shipped to Federal Firearms License Holders (FLL) ONLY
All firearms purchases must be shipped directly to a Federal Firearms Licensee (FLL). Firearms cannot be shipped to individuals.
Sales Subject to State and Local Regulations
Many of the firearms, magazines and parts for sale on this website may be restricted or prohibited in your area. Please check your local and state regulations before ordering. It is your responsibility to ensure that a firearm is legal to own in your state.
Please take your time to inspect all firearms thoroughly before filing out your 4473 with your receiving FFL. Once a new firearm is transferred to an individual, it is considered used, even if it is unfired.
The Alamo will not accept returns or refunds for firearms once they have been transferred into your possession. Also, we will not reimburse FFL transfer fees on returned items.
We do understand that some manufacturer defects may not be identifiable upon initial inspection. However, upon discovering a fit and finish or mechanical defect after the transfer, it is best to return the firearm directly to the manufacturer for replacement or repair (in accordance with manufacturer’s warranty policy).
Sending a defective firearm directly to the manufacturer, where permissible by state and local law, will avoid any transfer fees of returning the firearm to us through your local FFL dealer. Please check state and local laws before shipping directly to the manufacturer. Contact [email protected] if you require guidance through this process. The Alamo will accept returns on firearms that have not been transferred, however a 25% restocking fee plus shipping cost will be charged.
If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us for a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) request within 10 business days of the receipt of the product. If the item is returned unopened in the original box, we will exchange it, offer you store credit, or offer you a refund, less 10% restocking fee, based on your original method of payment.
The product must be returned within 10 business days of the issuance of the RMA. All products must be packed in the original packaging, including any accessories, manuals, documentation and registration that shipped with the product.
A 15% open box fee in addition to the 10% restocking fee (totaling 25%) will be assessed on any sealed product that is opened or removed from its original packaging.
NFA Returns / Cancellations
We are unable to process cancellations, returns or refunds for silencers or any NFA items once the order is placed, the sale is final.

ONLINE PRICE & DESCRIPTION ERRORS
Our online inventory changes every day. Occasionally an item may appear on the site by mistake or the item’s description may contain a typographical error. We do not guarantee that titles, descriptions, pictures or prices on our site are error-free. Furthermore, it is common practice for stock photos to be used that may not be an exact representation of the item being sold and may in fact be similar to the item being sold. Customers should make their decision to purchase based on the description listed on the website and NOT the photo. We reserve the right to refuse any order including but not limited to orders for items with errors in the description or price. In the event that we cancel an order we will not charge the customer’s credit card or we will refund the money.
If an item’s description contains an error such as incorrect price and a customer makes the order, we will not process the order without first contacting the customer. If the order is mistakenly shipped, we may advise the customer to return the item in an unopened condition and we will refund the customer. By placing an order, the customer agrees that seller will be the final arbiter of discrepancies in the online catalog.
You must be 18 or older to purchase rifle or shotgun ammunition and 21 or older to purchase handgun ammunition. All ammunition will be shipped ground with adult signature required.

Automatic Firearms Transfers
All Transferable Machine Guns are shipped for a flat fee of $95.00 via FedEx Ground to a licensed Class 3 Dealer of your choice. All other firearms and suppressors are shipped for a flat fee of $25.00 via UPS Ground.
Your dealer will send us the proper paperwork for this first transfer, we prepare and fax the Form 3 transfer to BATF immediately, and then once the transfer clears BATF we ship the gun to your dealer. You’re in-state dealer then prepares Form 4 paperwork, which you will sign and also have signed by the Chief Law Enforcement Officer in your locale (Sheriff, Chief of Police, State Police Chief, etc… only need for one to sign). You return the completed Form 4’s to the in-state dealer, along with (2) passport size photos, (2) fingerprint cards, (1) citizenship authorization, and a transfer tax check made payable to Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms for the onetime per item transfer tax. A $200.00 transfer tax applies to Short BBL Shotguns, Short BBL Rifles, Machine Guns and Suppressors; a $5.00 transfer tax applies to items classified as Any Other Weapons – “AOW”. This paperwork is mailed to BATF and when this transfer clears you go pick up your gun. We email/contact our customers each step of the way, so you will know when your gun arrives in state and the next transfer, from your dealer to you, can begin.
