Gun Dealer/Gunsmith Application

Applications are free of charge and may be printed via the links below or picked up during normal business hours.

For your convenience, the PDF documents may be filled in electronically then printed for signatures and brought to your appointment, or you may print the forms blank and fill in manually.

PLEASE READ INSTRUCTIONS COMPLETELY BEFORE YOU COMPLETE YOUR PAPERWORK.  

The gun dealer/gunsmith application consists to TWO PARTS:
  1. The first part is the New York State Application for License as Gunsmith-Dealer in Firearms (PPB-6 form).  You need TWO ORIGINALS and they must be printed front/back (duplex).  Do not sign or have anyone witness any forms, they will be signed during your fingerprinting appointment.  Print PPB-6 form (PDF)
  2. The second part is the Madison County application package.  You will need ONE COPY and it must be printed single sided ONLY.  Do not sign or have anyone witness any forms, they will be signed during your fingerprinting appointment. Print Madison County application package (PDF)

Those currently licensed as a gunsmith/dealer must renew their license every 3 years, and reapply every 6 years.  The 3 year renewal does not require fingerprinting so the $87.00 fee does not apply in that instance.
