After December 21st, American Firearms can no longer accept AR 10 and 15's Ak's Thompson1927 and possible more, for registration purposes, because of the 10 day wait for your weapon which we have to hold. The 10th day will be December 31st. Any AR's, AK's Thompson 1927 and more, not meeting the magazine retention requirement will be turned away and sent back to the sender at YOUR expense as of December 22nd. or turned over to ATF or other law enforcement.

We will be open for you to pick up your firearms on December 31st from 10am-4pm or before that on your assigned day and time of the 10-day wait period. HOWEVER if your pickup time is after we close, you will lose the firearm.


We encourage you to have your guns sent to us early and registered prior to December 21st, as we not responsible for internet, computer failure or the DROS (Registration) system going down on the December 21st and December 31st making it impossible to complete your DROS Process.

The sad news is that if your firearms are still with us after December 31st, the weapons will not be able to be released, UNLESS they are California compliant... Sorry, NO IFS ANDS OR BUTS, we didn't make the laws we just have to abide by them.

If you need further assistance on this matter, please feel free to call us Monday thru Friday 10am to 6pm and Saturday 10am-4pm.
