Alaska Firearm Bill of Sale Requirements

The Alaska Firearm Bills of Sale are valid if they include all relevant information. The documents must contain:

  1. Identification information about the buyer and the seller. Both parties must provide their full names, physical address with state and ZIP-code, and driver's licenses numbers;
  2. A detailed description of the transferred firearm. Indicate the make, model, caliber, and serial number. Specify if the firearm has any defects. If yes, list them on the form. Provide additional information important for the transfer;
  3. The price paid for the firearm. Specify the amount both in words and in numbers. You can also add a payment type. If the whole sum is not paid at once, enter the down payment amount, the due amount, and the date the amount is due. In this case, the buyer should provide the seller with a promissory note to be attached to the bill of sale;
  4. Details of transaction. At a minimum, provide a date the transfer occurred. If there are any special conditions, for example, the described firearm is given as a gift or traded for another item, these conditions must be carefully described in the form;
  5. The section containing the buyer's and the seller's disclosures. Both the buyer and the seller must read their disclosures and confirm that the information provided is true and correct to the best of their knowledge;
  6. Signatures of the seller and the buyer.

Prepare the document in two copies. Each copy must contain the original signatures.

Does a Firearm Bill of Sale Have to Be Notarized in Alaska?

Alaska does not require a notary public's certification for firearm sales but it is generally a good idea to have a notary or witness to a firearm sale in order to confirm the transaction has taken place. This can save any potential trouble which might occur should the seller or buyer contest the transaction at a later date.
