Red Planet Arsenal FAQ
  • Are these firearms Connecticut legal? How?
    Yes. Each individual model is designed and built in accordance with current Federal and State law. We have the paperwork from the Beareau of Alchohol, Tobaco, and Firearms (ATF) acknowledging such.
  • Can I put a stock on any of these firearms?
    The only firearms shown on this site that can be outfitted legally with a butt stock are the models with 16in or longer barrels and an overall length of greater than 26in. For CT, only the RPA18, which is a bolt action rifle, and for other models, with either preban or registered postban receiver. Like the Glock Convertible Carbine. Otherwise, it can be built using a brand new, or "postban" pistol and transferred as an "Other". You can outfit it with a forearm brace but it must have a vertical grip in that config.
  • What does NFA/ NON-NFA mean?
    NFA stands for the National Firearms Act. Some of the firearms and accessories we offer must be processed through the NFA, which means you will have to complete the NFA application and wait for thier approval before being allowed to pick-up your item. If we designate an item on our site as non-NFA, it means you can purchase and pick it up like you would any other firearm, using your State Pistol Permit (CT). No extra paperwork, fees, or waiting period. NFA items like suppressors, AOWs, SBRs, SBS, will be shipped to your local class-3 dealer for transfer. Non-NFA items can be shipped to your local FFL. Shipping to CT destinations is free.
  • Why are Foregrips necessary on some models?
    Foregrips are an important component on some models because a foregrip drops the firearm out of the "pistol" category as defined by the ATF.
  • Do you stock all of these models, or are they all built to order?"
    We do stock some models, but our core expertise, and practice, is to build each firearm to the specs requested by each client. We like to deliver a "perfect fit" for every customer. In most cases, delivery time is about 2 weeks.
  • Do you ship firearms?
    1. All rifle, shotgun, and ammunition orders are shipped UPS Ground (no PO Box addresses please). 2. Handgun orders will either ship UPS Air or USPS Priority mail at the discretion of Red Planet Arsenal 3. Accessory orders may be shipped via UPS Ground or any method offered by the USPS at the discretion of Red Planet Arsenal 4. Due to federal regulations, firearms and ammunition orders cannot be shipped in the same package. 5. Most accessory orders are shipped within 24 hours of the order being placed. Please allow and plan for delays during high volume periods. Custom made firearms will have an estimated build and test lead time shown in their product pages. You will receive an email with tracking info once your item has shipped. We ship to the USA only. Our items are not to be exported. 6. Firearms will ONLY ship to an FFL holder (or C&R license holder if applicable). If you do not have an FFL, then you must find one in your area to handle the transfer for you. 7. We do not ship specific makes and models or types of firearms to states within which they are banned. Ex: No NFA sales to CA, NJ, NY, etc. NFA items are legal in the following states: AL, AR, AK, AZ, CO, CT, FL, GA, ID, IN, KS, KY, LA, ME, MD, MI, MO, MS, MT, NE, NV, NH, NM, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, PA, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, WA, WV, WI, and WY. NFA items must ship to a class 3 dealer.
