Default Question about FFL transfer process

Hi All,

New to the forum here and planning on making my first purchase that requires an FFL transfer. I have a simple question about the process:

Once I find an FFL willing to do the transfer, do I then go in and do all the necessary paperwork and have the background check done BEFORE making the purchase? Or do I just give the dealer my FFL's info and do the paperwork later?

Never done it before and a bit confused. Google didn't help me much. Thanks in advance!

Generally you need to wait until the firearm arrives until you start the paperwork. So, you need to contact the FFL and have them send their FFL to the seller (assuming the seller is a FFL, otherwise the FFL is not required). Once it arrives, you can inspect it and start the paperwork.
