compass is an ffl dealer


Compass Auctions takes gun laws seriously and abide by all rules and regulations set forth by the federal government. We are a Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) dealer.  As an FFL, we conduct thorough background checks, abide by shipping restrictions, and prohibit straw purchases.

Compass Auctions is located in Tennessee. If you are a resident of another state, you will need to find an FFL in your state to complete the transfer of your firearm. Please be aware of your state’s firearms laws and restrictions before bidding. Compass is not responsible if an item is won and cannot be shipped due to local restrictions. 

Whether you are a seasoned collector or are purchasing a firearm for the first time, being familiar with FFL services is important to buying firearms responsibly. We created the following infographic as a general overview of how FFLs work.
