Frequently Asked Questions
How Much will it Cost
Prices are with the pictures. Dealers with a state sales tax "Resale" certificate get a 10% discount. If you need a quote, my E mail address is at the bottom. The only price that is unknown is the metal work, if needed. Metal prep prices are given only after I see the item. I have seen some real junk described as "good condition" on the telephone. And I will not give a firm metal prep price until I see it. A picture can help me estimate it if the details show up.
For complete guns sent to me and returned that way, the costs add up as follows.
Disassemble Gun and clean - $30.00 to $50.00
Metal Prep - Price to be Determined
Engraving or Lettering Cost
Assembly $30.00 to $100.00 [I need to know what gun]
Shipping Back to a dealer [See shipping page]
NOTE: If you have a local gunsmith that you trust to disassemble and reassemble your gun, it saves on shipping costs. Many also do blueing for very good prices to.
How Long will it Take
My work load depends on the time of the year. I want to get my backlog down to no more than 4 months for complete guns being engraved. This is why I an not accepting any new work, except from old customers until Thanksgiving, 2013. Lettering and engraving repair are done quickly. About 6 weeks.
When and How do I Pay
I usually do not need advance payment, and will bill you when I am done and ready to ship. Small jobs like lettering need a payment sent with the item. The fastest shipping will be for Postal Money Orders. These are secure and I can ship when I receive them. All checks require 10 days to clear.
How do I ship a gun.
ONLY by a FFL Dealer to me. Includes antiques to. C&R license does not help.
Parts can be shipped to me by anyone.
