Return & Shipping Policies

CARDS ACCEPTED

Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.


RETURNS

30 days from the date of delivery. The return shipping is the responsibility of the customer. No returns on firearms, ammunition, electronics, thermal/night vision optics. If there is a defect in the firearm, only the manufacturer of the firearm can assist in replacement or repair. The customer must call the store to receive an RMA for the return. Returned items must be in the original packaging. Firearms cannot be shipped to a PO box, they must ship to a valid FFL. The customer is responsible for knowing his/her state laws regarding firearm transfers. Contact your local FFL dealer with any questions regarding the sale or transfer of firearms. Contact your local FFL before ordering a firearm to verify their transfer fee and to ensure they will receive your transfer. The customer assumes all responsibility and cost for returned firearms due to FFL refusal or failure to receive.
