Washington State Firearm Transfer Application – Step by Step

The Washington State Firearm Transfer Application can only be generated from an electronic 4473. If you need help on how to start an electronic 4473, please see our help page on Starting an Electronic 4473.

​For the Washington background check button to work you must first link a contact to the 4473. We also suggest that you review and fill out Q24, Q25, Q26a, Q26b, Q26c, and Q26d (if they are necessary) before clicking the Washington background check button at the top of the page.
