Firearms are sold as-is: You are encouraged to inspect any firearm you wish to bid on, to confirm specific details.  All firearms are sold as-is. 

 

Requirements for Firearms Purchase: Unless indicated otherwise, all firearm purchases require a Criminal Background Check of the buyer.  Purchasers must be over 18 years of age to purchase a rifle or shotgun and over 21 years of age to purchase a handgun.  Non-New York State residents can purchase firearms only if they are a Federally Licensed Firearms Dealer (FFL) or if they are having the firearm sent to an FFL holder in their state for transfer. 

 

During the auction, purchasers firearms will be required to fill out one ATF 4473 form (no matter how many firearms are purchased) and submit it immediately to auction staff so that a Criminal Background Check can be conducted.  This is in accordance with federal and New York State Law.  Winning bidders can pay for their purchases once the Criminal Background check has cleared and a “Proceed” status has been obtained.  Dealers must present a copy of their Federal Firearms License (FFL) with an original signature the day of sale in order to purchase firearms without complete a background check. Purchasers will not be charged extra for the Criminal Background Check to be completed.  There will be no surcharge or fee (other than shipping fees) for firearms to be shipped to an FFL in another state.  If any firearm is shipped to another FFL holder for transfer, all shipping charges, materials and labor will be charged to the buyer.  Purchase of a handgun requires that the buyer present a valid NY State pistol permit and a valid pistol coupon must be exchanged in order to obtain the gun.

 

If a purchaser is unable to receive a firearm due to a “Denied” status following the Criminal Background Check (or for any other reason), the firearm will be resold in this auction, as we have an obligation to pay the consignor regardless of the status of the purchaser.  It is illegal for individuals to purchase firearms for someone else. A purchaser must be of legal age,  purchase the firearm for him or herself, pass the background check him or herself, and present the required documentation for him or herself.

 

ID Requirements: Purchasers of firearms must meet both federal and state requirements. A photocopy of your driver’s license as well as other documents used to meet the ID requirements will be made and kept with your records for your transaction:

 

  • Purchaser must provide a government issued photo ID with name, residence address (not PO Box) and date of birth. If the photo ID provides a PO Box, then a combination of government-issued documents may be provided to satisfy the above requirement.  The ID must provide the purchaser’s name, gender and date of birth.  The issue of the photo ID must be 30 days (or more) prior to the transfer of the firearm.
  • Handgun purchasers must present their original New York State pistol permit.

 

If Bontrager Real Estate & Auction Service staff are uncertain as to whether or not the presented documentation meets the requirement set above, the transfer of the firearm will be delayed until the New York State Police and/or the ATF can be contacted for clarification. 

 

Payment and Terms: All firearms must be paid for in full by the close of the auction.  Acceptable forms of payment are cash, cashier’s check or money order, personal/business check with valid ID, Visa or MasterCard.  A 13% buyer’s premium and 8% NY state sales tax is charged with each purchase.  Buyer’s who pay with cash or check will receive a 3% discount on the buyer’s premium. Sales tax exempt buyers must present valid and current tax exempt paperwork at the time of registration.  Tax exempt numbers are routinely checked by the auction company and you will be required to pay sales tax if your paperwork is incomplete or your information is not cleared by the state.

 

Absentee Bids: Absentee bids are accepted and must be received prior to the start of the auction sale by calling 585-343-4529.  When you leave your bid, you must provide your name (as it appears on your driver’s license), phone number, and the lot numbers and corresponding bid amounts.  You may be required to provide additional ID information if you are not a current customer with this auction company.  Absentee bidders will also be required to comply with all state and federal laws regarding firearm purchases, including the completion of ATF form 4473 and Criminal Background Check.  All absentee bids are executed competitively.
