How do I buy a firearm online?

We hold a Federal Firearms License (FFL) and only ship firearms to other FFL and C&R license holders. We are an internet-based business and do not offer store-front retail transactions.

Please do not attempt to purchase a firearm if it is illegal in your state.  Please know your own state laws and restrictions.

The firearm you purchase from us will be shipped to your FFL for pick up and they will perform the transfer.  Please contact your FFL agent and have them email a copy of their FFL to sales@milcoll.com and place the invoice number in the subject line.

Once we receive your dealer’s FFL and payment, your firearm will be shipped and you will be provided with the tracking number.

Do you guarantee the items you sell?

We guarantee everything we sell to be as we described them and as the photographs show.  We post high definition photos of everything we sell.

What is your return policy?

We do not offer an inspection period on items and will only accept them back if they are grossly misrepresented or not functioning properly.  We do not test fire every firearm we take in but every firearm that we sell should fire and function correctly unless noted in the description.  Please look at the pictures closely to determine the authenticity of an item and contact us if additional pictures would be helpful to make that determination.  If it is determined that the item was misrepresented or not functioning properly we will pay for return postage.

What forms of payments do we accept?

Visa, MasterCard, Discover, & American Express for instant checkout.  We also accept PayPal, USPS money order, bank money order, and personal checks, but please use the “Contact” tab to arrange payment.  Bank money orders and personal checks will delay shipping as the item will be held until payment clears.

International shipping, shipping rates, handling fees, & combined shipping?

We do not ship internationally.  We try to keep our rates low by using both USPS and UPS and by not adding on excessive extra fees.  Ammo can only be shipped through UPS.  If you make several separate orders we will combine shipping and reimburse you the difference if the other orders have not shipped yet.

Do you have a store?

No. We do not have a storefront and are not open to the public at anytime.  We do rent offsite storage to house all of the items that we offer.

What is my collection worth?

Please refer to the consignment and appraisals tabs.

Do you buy military items and or collections?

Yes, we do buy individual items and entire collections.  We are always looking for items to add to our personal collections or possible resale.  We pay top dollar for military items.

Do you have Layaway?

Yes.  If you are interested in layaway please use the “contact” tab and tell us what item/items you would like.  We then require the non-refundable 30% down and the remaining balance is due within 90 days.

I can not find an address or phone number for your business?

Since we do not have a store front and only sell things online, we do not publish our physical address but are based out of Eastern MN and Western WI.  We also do not publish our phone numbers as all employees have other full-time jobs and may not be available immediately to answer questions.  Email is preferred, but we will provide our phone number under certain circumstances.
