Firearms Recovery & Deactivation

We are authorized to deactivated firearms to an inert status so that they can be removed from the NYSP Firearms Record Bureau Our technique has been approved by the following licensing jurisdictions to deactivate firearms for purposes of:

Suffolk County Western Police District - Suffolk County Sheriff's Office (5 East End Towns)
You will need to acquire from the Pistol License Section of your Licensing entity,
Letterhead Authorization for us to do the work.

  • Memento - Mounting to a Wall Plaque or installation into a shadowbox or presentation box
  •  Retention of a Service Weapon for posterity by family members who wish not to maintain possession of such via a Pistol License or in he case of a relative of a deceased police officer, on their badge.
  • This effectively removes the firearm from the requirements of NYS's Sullivan Law which mandates firearms registration.
  • We can recover firearms in Property Sections of all Police/Sheriff's Offices throughout the state. Be aware that we MUST recover said firearms in person and fees will vary by distance traveled. we provide this service to Active, retired or deceased Police Officers and their Estates - Please see below for particulars

Pricing varies depending on Make - Model & Condition of Firearm involved

Recovery Service fee are additional to Deactivation Service pricing


  • Please note that prior to us deactivating a pistol or revolver belonging to a pistol license holder, you must first verify that the weapon is registered on a valid (current) pistol license with the appropriate Licensing entity.

    NOTE: Separate procedures for those with expired licenses. Please call the appropriate Pistol License Bureau for instructions to surrender such weapons to them for 'Safe Keeping'. This is not as scary a procedure as it sounds.
    This is not an uncommon occurrence.

  • Prior to the deactivation of any pistol or revolver belonging to a police officer or Pistol Licensee, he or she must present to us a signed agency letter from the relevant Pistol License Bureau authorizing said deactivation.

    • In the event that the weapon is the property of a decedent, a letter must be presented to Pistol License by the executor of his or her estate along with the decedent's pistol license. The person designated as the executor or administrator of the deceased's estate may lawfully possess the firearms in question for a period of up to 15 days for the sole purpose of lawfully disposing of the firearms. If this cannot be accomplished within the 15-day time frame, the weapons must be surrendered to a law enforcement agency who would then hold the weapons for safe keeping for a period not to exceed 2 years during which time the weapons may still be disposed of. If the weapons are not disposed of within that time period, they will be classified as nuisance properties and destroyed. 

    • In the event that the weapon must be recovered from the custody of a law enforcement agency, the letter must be presented by the registered owner of the weapon, his or her legal designee, or the executor of his or her estate, as appropriate. Additionally, we will need a Certificate of Voluntary Administration issued by the Surrogate Court indicating both the Executor and the weapon(s) covered as well as the court's Form I-2 as required under SCPS §2509. There is no exception from this. Please consult your Estate Lawyer for the appropriate forms to facilitate the weapon(s) release.
    • Said agency letter on Suffolk County Police Department letterhead, or on Suffolk County Sheriff's Office letterhead, signed by a member of the Pistol Licensing Bureau, and will authorize the deactivation of a firearm or firearms by make, model, type, caliber, and serial number. You will need to provide this to us in order to receive said weapon(s).

    • Upon completion of the above procedure we will issue a dealer receipt for Deactivation services to the license holder or police officer or estate executor for the purposes of removing the weapons from the owner's pistol license or shield. This will remove said firearm from the state's registry rendering it as NAF (Not a Firearm).

  • We remind you that you are required to present said receipt back to the appropriate Pistol License Section for removal from their Pistol License or Shield within 10 days of deactivation. Only upon presentation of our receipt for service will the weapon(s) be deemed Deactivated.

    Remember that the Deactivated Firearm(s), even though no longer deemed “LIVE” still require responsible oversight and should not be possessed by children or individuals who are deemed incapable of being in possession. As a Deactivated Firearm, it is still a crime to possess and use in such a manner as to cause another person concern or fear of grave physical injury and or death.

    N.Y. CONSOLIDATED LAWS Article 39-B. Imitation Weapons -  871. Definitions (2) Requires that if the Deactivated Firearm is removed from its plaque or presentation display, (b) is marked with a non-removable orange stripe which is at least one inch in width and runs the entire length of the barrel on each side and the front end of the barrel, and (c) has a barrel at least one inch in diameter that is closed for a distance of not less than one-half inch from the front-end of its barrel with the same material of which the imitation weapon is made.
