An Arizona firearm bill of sale is a form that reports the transfer of gun ownership between individuals in a private sale. The document contains a detailed weapon description that identifies the serial number, caliber/gauge, action type, manufacturer, and model. It also states where the gun was sold, who it was sold to, and the price for which it was purchased. Following the sale, both the buyer and seller should store the document in a secure location to use in the event of legal complications. If the firearm is associated with a crime, the bill of sale can prove which party possessed the weapon when the illegal act took place.
