What's the process? Are all orders for rifles by phone only? Do I need to have the FFL I use order the rifles or do I call them?


Just looking for an overview on how much of a hassle it is.


Thanks

A: Do they have a copy of the FFL that they will be shipping to? If not - call them up to get the adress and then send it in.

B: Order

C: Recieve at your FFL

CDNN does NOT sell firearms through their web site, so yes, you have to call them (its okay, they are friendly folk :) ).

I just ordered a Steyr S40 from them.

I called them, told them what I wanted, he asked me where it was going to ship, I gave him the name, address and phone number of the FFL I was going to use and he said "hang on a minute" ... when he came back he said "we already have him on file" (so I didn't have to send him a copy of the FFL ... if the FFL you are using isn't already on file with them, you will need to go down to your local guy's shop, get a signed copy of his FFL signed in blue ink and mail it to CDNN before they will ship). Then the guy at CDNN took my credit card information ... put me on their mailing list (so I get the printed catalog instead of downloading the PDF all the time) and that was that.

A few days later I called my FFL and my pistol was there! So I went over there, filled out a BATFe form 4477 and Earl (my FFL) sat on hold for almost an hour waiting to perform my "instant" background check ... It came back okay so I slapped a $20 on the desk, picked up my pistol, shook hands with Earl and I was on my way!

Sounds like a pretty easy way to go. Ialready sent an Email to my FFL so I guess I need to call CDNN on Monday.



Thanks for the quick replies. http://www.lunitixx.com/temp/emoticons/thumb-up.gif

Aren't there some other requirements to order from CDNN? Like training or membership in something?

TimH...I think you're confusing CDNN (a firearms wholesaler) with the CMP (a governmental agency to promote marksmanship and distribute milita4ry firearms)

When you go to the guy you want to use for the transfer, take CDNN Investments mailing address and telephone number with you. I had a guy wanting to use our shop to transfer a Siaga shotgun come in and ask for a copy to send to CDNN. We (the shop) won't give out copies, we send it directly to the other FFL holder for the transfer. I'm sure most other FFL holders do the same thing with limited exceptions.
