PURCHASING FIREARMS ONLINE
It is illegal to ship firearms to anyone not holding an active Federal Firearms License (FFL). For that reason, firearms purchased online must be picked up at our store or shipped to an FFL (gun store) near you. We will contact and verify the FFL you select during checkout before we ship your firearm(s). The buyer is encouraged to contact the receiving FFL licensee before purchase.
All new firearms are shipped in the original manufacturer's box, with magazine(s), accessories and
applicable warranty. Firearms sales are final. Firearms requiring warranty work must be returned to the
factory within 1 year of purchase for repair. Accessories and special order items not normally sold by
our store will not be covered under warranty even if these products are part of an integrated firearms
package, unless we have guaranteed the entire package in writing. Please contact the original
manufacturer for warranty information on all accessories and special order items.
If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please contact us for a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) request within 10 business days of the receipt of the product. If the item is returned unopened in the original box, we will exchange it, offer you store credit, or offer you a refund, less 25% restocking fee, based on your original method of payment. The product must be returned within 10 business days of the issuance of the RMA. All products must be packed in the original packaging, including any accessories, manuals, documentation and registration that shipped with the product. A 15% open box fee in addition to the 25% restocking fee (totaling 40%) will be assessed on any sealed product that is opened or removed from its original packaging. Cancelation of online orders must be submitted by 6pm on the day they were made in order to avoid the 25% restocking fee. Cancelation of online orders after end of business day will incur the 25% restocking fee, no exceptions.
Please note that we do not permit the return of the following products:
1. Special orders and products that are custom configured to your specifications.
2. Products sold "as is" or "used" or that have been installed or used after receipt.
3. Firearms, once transferred to buyer.
4. Illumination devices, electronic sights, optics and night vision equipment.
