How-To Buy a Firearm at Auction?

How to buy a firearm from an auction? This is the question we are attempting to answer with this blog post.

how to bid at an auction and buy a firearm

Let us show you How-To Buy a Firearm at an Auction. The most important piece of information is that the BIDDER IS THE BUYER.  The buyer needs to register, bid, and complete the sale.  Make sure the bidding is done in your name, not by a spouse or friend’s account 😉  Do not bid and buy firearms for someone who cannot; it is illegal.  You could be at risk, do not buy for the other guy.

Every winning bidder is required by federal law to complete an ATF 4473 and background check.  Unless the firearm purchased is an antique, it is your responsibility to determine if your purchase conforms to your local and state laws for ownership.

Winners who want to pick up here in Trinity, TX

All winning bidders of a firearm will complete this process at our facility before you pick up your firearm.

To complete the Firearms Transaction Record ATF Form 4473, you must present your identification (establish identity, place of residence, physical address, and buyer’s age.) Examples: Texas State Driver’s License or other Valid Government Issued Identification that will fulfill the requirements.

Texas License to Carry Hand Gun holders are exempt from the background check, but you must still complete Form 4473. Remember to have LTC & Driver’s License on hand to complete the form and verify your identity.

You can download a copy of the ATF Form 4473 above and pre-fill the form. Do not sign or date the form. Your signature and date will be completed here at the auction house. Please read the instructions and only fill in the buyer’s sections of the form. As the FFL, we are responsible for completing the balance of the form. 

Unable to pick it up at our facility?

Email us your local FFL dealer’s Name, Address, and a copy of their FFL license.  Send the email to  Then, we can ship your firearm to your local dealer for you to complete your background check with them before you take possession of the firearm.

Online purchasers must contact their local Federal Firearms Dealer and have them email us a copy of their FFL.  All emails should include your Invoice Number and name if you prefer shipment to another dealer.

We will ONLY ship to another Federal Firearms Licensed Dealer; then, you will complete your background check with the dealer you choose in your area. Check with the dealer about the fees they may charge you for the transfer service.
