How To Ship Your Firearm To Us For Service

*Call or email us prior to shipping.

*Please do not ship your firearm to us until conferring with us so we may provide you with excellent service. Additional shipping information will be provided at this time.

*If you are shipping a rifle, shotgun, or handgun, we recommend that you ship your firearm to us via UPS (United Parcel Service) ground service. We recommend that you insure your package.

*Make sure the package is marked that an adult signature is required upon delivery. Tell UPS that you want this service added to your shipment.

*When shipping a firearm, it is extremely important that you comply with federal, state, and local laws and regulations. The following guidelines are meant to help; but you must seek assistance from the appropriate authorities, if necessary.

*Check magazines and chambers to ensure that they are unloaded.

*Do not attempt to ship a handgun via US Postal Service. Only federally licensed dealers may ship a firearm by US Postal Service.

*When shipping for repair a pistol or rifle that uses a magazine, please include all magazines, ensuring that they are unloaded. They are important to the proper function of the handgun.

*Before shipping your handgun, ensure that the firearm is unloaded and packaged securely.

*DO NOT ship any ammunition.

*The package must NOT bear any markings that indicate the identity of the contents.

*Enclose a letter that includes your full name, full address (no P.O. boxes, please), daytime telephone number, email address, the serial number of the firearm, details of the problem experienced (stating the brand and type of ammunition used when the problem occurred), and/or the work desired.

*Record the serial number before shipping, in case you wish to check on the repair status of your firearm.

*We can help you handle your shipping details. We can schedule shipping pick-ups for guns that you are sending to us for repairs, refinishing, or customization. We can assist you with arrangements for packaging materials, if needed.
