Frequently Asked Questions

Laws

Do I need to pass a background check to purchase a firearm?

In most cases, the answer is going to be “Yes”. All sales of modern firearms (pistols and rifles) will require a background check of the individual buyer. The only exceptions are for some antique firearms and reproductions (black powder). If you have any concerns about your ability to pass a background check, please raise it BEFORE filling out any paperwork as there will be a Transfer Fee charged regardless of the approval status.

Who can purchase firearms from Hill Top Arms?

PA residents for all rifles and handguns with the ability to pass a background check and are “of age”:

Rifles – Over the age of 18
Handguns – Over the age of 21

Out of state sales are handled on an individual basis.

Can Hill Top Arms refuse to sell me a firearm?

Yes, if there is reason to believe the buyer is not the actual purchaser of the firearm (known as a “straw” purchase), is not acting responsibly, or if staff have any other concerns about the sale or transfer.
