 I am looking for an extremely particular handgun and I am having some difficulties in locating one.


It is a Ruger LCP-PG .380 ACP, model 3725. TALO distributes it, from what I understand. Here is my dilemma, there is a FFL dealer in my town that I can supposedly get this specific gun through, according to Ruger's web site at least. However, I have never actually ordered a custom handgun before and, on account, am at a loss on how to proceed with ordering said gun. 

 


I don't doubt there are some other discriminating collectors on here. How does one go about ordering a customized gun?


The doctor said I need to start drinking more whiskey. Also, I'm calling myself "the doctor" now.

 Go to your local gun shop and ax.  The shop can propably get the weapon for you if it is available.

It is a Distributor Exclusive production pistol. E-mail Rugerand axe which distributor carries it. If you can't find it local buy it from an out of town dealer and have it sent to a local FFL.

 Don't forget to check that there aren't any State or local ordinances prohibiting that color...as I recall there was some uproar over pastel-colored guns years ago

You did not put much thought into this apparently. Axe your local gun shop. You have a local dealer? Why not contact him. I continue to say we are not a society of thinkers.

Whenever I wanted a specific firearm that wasn't in stock at my local gunshop, I would just have them order it, and they would call me when it came in.  It's not rocket science.

 To those who didn't imply that I am an idiot, thanks for the input.

It's usually not an FFL dealer specific gun, but rather it's the distributor/wholesalers that gets the exclusives or types of custom guns and then makes them available to the dealers/Retailers who buy from them. But the best way is check around at local gunshops or online dealers/auctions to find what you're looking for in stock, or if they can order it for you. If you buy it online, you just have it shipped to a local FFL dealer who does transactions for the public. There will be a fee of around $35. However some FFL dealers won't do the tranaction because of the hassle involved, (they have to send a copy of there FFL to the dealer you purchased your gun from, receive, sign & be responsable for the gun, unpack it, record it in their bound book, contact you, store it until you come pick it up, do the paperwork and NICS background check through the ATF and keep the paperwork (form 4473), on file "FOREVER" and then log it back out of their bound book). People complaining about transfer fees are one reason many FFL's have stopped doing transaction's for people, so be nice and let them know you appreciate their help. Remember they are doing a favor for someone, (you), who purchased a product from another dealer/seller, ie., gave someone else their business, instead of buying from them. With all that said, the way the market is right now, most all handguns, tactical rifles & tactical shotguns, as well as their ammo, are extremeley hard to find. But I do wish you luck in getting the gun you want. Have a great day and God Bless.
