I am thinking of I purchasing a firearm "face to face" from a private seller. This would involve a one for one variation, and I understand that I must sell, or transfer to a RFD for sale, my current rifle. Is it then possible to purchase, but not use, the replacement rifle before the variation is approved, or is it a matter of agreeing a holding deposit with the vendor ?
Also, , what documentation is required from both parties ?
I'm sure this is not a rare occurrence so any advice would be welcome.
