Selecting the correct shipping method for your shipment.
Selecting a shipping method that is best suited to your shipment is very important. Not all items can ship using all methods. In addition flat rate shipping has box size limitations. This means not every order can fit in a flat rate box. If the shipping method the customer chooses for his or her shipment is not viable for the order, Buffalo Arms reserves the right to choose a more suitable shipping method.
