What is an FFL and why must I have my gun sent to a Dealer with an FFL?

A Federal Firearms License (also referred to as FFL) is required by anyone engaging in the sale or transfer of firearms in the United States. The FFL entitles the dealer to receive and transfer firearms in accord with the laws set forth by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE). Therefore, in order to receive your weapon, it must first be transferred to a licensed dealer where the appropriate transfer paperwork can be processed –

What are the differences between Carbine, Mid-Length, and Pistol Length gas systems?

Historically, the M4 Carbine was designed with a carbine length gas system; therefore, most commercially available M4 carbines that are on the market today are built with this in mind. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a carbine length gas system on a 16” barreled M4, but it does produce more gas pressure than necessary to make the gun operate.

The Mid-Length Gas System was developed solely around a 16” barrel. The gas port is a couple of inches closer to the muzzle, thus reducing dwell time, gas pressures, and overall perceived felt recoil.

Pistol Length Gas Systems are only prominent on barrels shorter than or equal to 10.3”. Currently, Daniel Defense manufacturers two rifles with this gas system length. These rifles are the 300 Blackout SBR and the ISR in 300 Blackout.

We may also cancel orders at your request (conditions apply, contact Customer Support for details). If none of these explanations apply to you, please contact Customer Support for additional help.

Payment Error or Payment Verification:

The billing information you provided Modern-Outfitters.com does not match the billing information listed with your credit card company.
Your credit card’s expiration date, card number, and/or CVV were entered incorrectly on Modern-Outfitters.com.
The payment method you provided was declined. Contact your bank to ensure that you have enough funds available, and that there are no transaction limitations or other issues with your account.

Out of Stock:

While unlikely, orders may occasionally be canceled due to insufficient inventory and high demand. We view these scenarios as failures on our part and an inconvenience to you – and we apologize for this.

Abandoned Pick Up & Other:

Your order was not picked up in-store within the time frame quoted in your “Ready for Pickup” email notification.
The merchandise purchased violates local or state regulations; e.g. a cancellation could occur if an order for an item with shipping restrictions is accidentally allowed to be placed.

Please note that when you place an order through Modern-Outfitters.com, the website requests an approval from your credit card company in order to authorize the purchase. The credit card company will issue a pre-authorization for the order amount on your account while they wait for the transaction to settle. When an order is canceled, the pre-authorization will be removed from your statement and the funds will be restored to your account. This process may take several days to complete. Unfortunately, we are unable to reverse pre-authorizations. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
