Foreign Orders

The shipping charges shown on the website for foreign orders is not accurate and do not apply when FedEx is the shipper. Actual charges are typically 20-50% less then shown. Postal quotes are generally accurate.We will charge the actual shipping charges. 
Firearms, barrels, projectiles,  and conversion cylinders can be exported through one of our exporters. Due to current regulations this typically runs $300 and up for one shipment. We can recommend an U.S. exporter to you to assist you in this.

Due to federal regulations we cannot ship rifle and pistol brass outside of the U.S without the services of an exporter. Shotgun brass is excluded from these regulations. If your order has rifle or pistol brass on it we will automaticly remove these from the order and ship the balance with out contacting you. 
Due to the additional time it takes to put together an international shipment there is a $2 per package handling fee on each foreign order. If the country we are shipping to does not allow us to fully insure the parcel and in the unlikely event of a parcel being lost or damaged then it is the customer's loss. This has never happened but you should be aware of the possibility.

If for any reason your package is returned to us by the shipping company the customer will have to pay for all shipping charges. We will ship Global Express Mail or FedEx International Express to all foreign countries. We will select the best method of shipment. Calculated shipping prices shown on the web when ordering are not accurate for any foreign countries. If at checkout, your shipping charges shows a 0 dollar amount, it means that you have chosen an invalid shipping method. Showing a 0 dollar amount does not mean there is not a shipping charge.

We are unable to ship conversion cylinders, bullets, barrels, ammunition or firearms out of the country unless you use the services of an exporter. If your country does not appear on our shipping list then we are unable to ship anything to you at this time.
