What is the Process of Buying and Selling a Gun in Arizona?

Anyone purchasing a firearm from a licensed firearms dealer must complete a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms form 4473 (firearms transaction form). A firearms purchaser must, under the permanent provisions of the Federal Brady Law, also undergo a National Instant Criminal Background Check System check, which will be performed by the dealer.

The check will indicate to the dealer whether the purchaser’s background allows for the person to complete the purchase of the firearm.

In the state of Arizona, under Title 44, Trade and Commerce Chapter 36, Private Firearm Transactions Article 1, it states, “This state or any political subdivision of this state may not enact or implement any additional fee, tax, assessment, lien or other encumbrance on the transfer of a firearm between two private parties who are not prohibited possessors under state or federal law.”

In other words, there are so specific additional laws addressing private sales and no additional laws can be implemented on private transactions within the state.

There are penalties and legal ramifications for buyers and sellers if a firearm was sold under the following conditions:

  • an ineligible person was sold a firearm through the private transaction
  • the sold gun was a defaced firearm or  categorized as a restricted firearm (explosive weapon, machine gun)
  • the sold firearm was subsequently used in the commission of a crime

What are the Restrictions on Firearm Ownership in Arizona

In order to purchase a firearm legally, the buyer must be 18 years old to purchase rifles, shotguns and ammunition. Buyers looking to purchase handguns must be at least 21 years old. No permits or registration are required to own a firearm in the state.

The following disqualifies a person in Arizona from purchasing a firearm:


  • Conviction (felony or misdemeanor) where the crime has a maximum imprisonment term exceeding 1 year (even if a buyer did not receive actual imprisonment exceeding 1 year).
  • Warrant (felony or out-of-state misdemeanor).
  • Felony pre-trial release.
  • Misdemeanor crimes of domestic violence restraining/stalking/protection order mental health adjudication or commitment.
  • Unlawful use or addicted to a controlled substance (including marijuana).
  • Dishonorable discharge from the armed forces.
  • Renounced U.S. citizenship.
  • Illegal alien.
