Requirements

 
Renting Requirements

ALL RENTING MUST BE ACCOMPLISHED IN-PERSON
NOTE: Our props are not to be taken into the City of New York under any circumstances!

Thanks to a recent change in federal law interpretation, we no longer rent converted "live" firearms to anyone other than federal and NYS licensed Gun Wranglers. This is as per the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives New York City Office - Special Agent In Charge.

If you require "Live" props for your New York filmed scenes, you will need to hire a NYS licensed Gun Wrangler to take legal possession of the firearms for you. There is no longer an exemption for Production Company Prop Departments. If someone tells you "don't worry about it", back away as fast as you can, and hire a professional.

  2. An Invoice will be issued listing the Replica(s) and describing them as non-firing replica. The invoice must accompany the replica(s) at all times until return in good condition.
