C&R License Procedure

Get surplus and older C&R firearms sent direct to you without going through a transfer dealer...

Curio and Relics (C&R’s) are firearms of interest to collectors or firearms over 50 years old (such as Mausers, Mosin Nagants, etc.) An individual may apply for a C&R collector’s license from the BATF.

This license allows an individual to purchase and receive C&R eligible firearms shipped directly to their home though mail order, or pick them up, without completing the background checks through an FFL holder.

The license is good for three years and has a fee of $30.00.


•Downlaod the C&R application form 5310.16 7CR here:


•Download Alien Compliance form 5330.20 here:

The information is also available by calling the BATF at 866-662-2750

A C&R license does NOT permit an individual to “deal” in firearms.
