Tested firearms from recent Gun Tests evaluations for sale by FFL Dealer B.A. Brooks Sports in Houston. babrooks

Houston-based B.A. Brooks Sports is a Federal Firearms License dealer who supplies firearms for Gun Tests evaluations. B.A. Brooks Sports sometimes has guns acquired for Gun Tests evaluation that readers might want to purchase. The following list describes those firearms and accessories.

B.A. Brooks Sports is solely responsible for any firearms transactions, and there is no set update frequency of the inventory list. To ensure you receive notification of updated inventory lists when test guns become available, we suggest you set up an RSS feed for this site.

All interstate sales require FFL-to-FFL transfers and local NICS checks.

Unless otherwise noted, the goods are in at least Excellent resale condition, and in many cases they are Like New.

Most of the products have their original packaging and warranties or warranty cards enclosed.

In almost all cases, the magazine article about each gun recounts all the rounds shot through the guns. B.A. Brooks Sports won't sell products that were defective in Gun Tests evaluations.

We don't always get great deals on test guns, so we can't always offer you a great price. IF YOU CAN BUY A GUN CHEAPER ELSEWHERE, GO FOR IT.

Once you receive the product, the magazine will not be held responsible for any damage that occurs from use.

All sales are final.

There is generally only one test item for sale, so these products are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you're buying a gun, at some point B.A. Brooks Sports will ask you to send a copy of a signed Federal Firearms License from a license holder in your area. B.A. Brooks Sports will contact the dealer to ensure shipping the firearm to him is acceptable, and that local firearms laws and federal checks will be performed, where necessary.

You will be responsible for any handling and log-in fees the receiving FFL holder charges, local sales tax, and local/state/federal gun-law checks.
