Frequently Asked Questions

What is an FFL ?

S.W.A.T. Firearms manufactures and sells American Made AR-15 and AR-10 rifles, parts, and accessories for gun enthusiasts and dealers at discount sale prices throughout the USA.

A Federal Firearms License (FFL) is a license that enables a person or business to engage in firearm transactions. This can be your local Gun Shop, Gun Range or Pawn Shop that holds a current FFL license that can process your transfer.
 
You do not need an FFL to buy a firearm, but you will still need to visit an FFL holder to fill out the required paperwork and background check before taking possession of a firearm.

What are the difference between billet and forged receivers?

S.W.A.T. Firearms manufactures and sells American Made AR-15 and AR-10 rifles, parts, and accessories for gun enthusiasts and dealers at discount sale prices throughout the USA.

Billet is a different manufacturing process where we actually take one solid block of aluminum and mill everything away with a CNC Machine as opposed to forging or castings, which are melted down and poured, which can create air pockets and weak spots within the product that can eventually crack with the changes of pressure and temperature from normal use.
