In June 2018 the Delaware General Assembly passed a law making the possession of a bump stock or trigger crank illegal. In addition, the law mandates that Delaware residents relinquish these destructive weapons to law enforcement.

The legislation establishes a limited buy back program whereby Delaware residents are eligible to receive $100 for a bump stock and $15 for a trigger crank.

Buy Back Dates

November 3, 2018
10:00AM - 2:00PM

November 7, 2018
4:00PM - 8:00PM

The buy back program is for Delaware residents only. The program is only intended for individuals and does not apply to wholesale, retail, manufacturers, and distributor business entities. Anonymous relinquishments will be permitted however no compensation will be provided. Compensation is not permitted for homemade bump stocks or trigger cranks.
