The prices for our CoPilot and Guide rifles are located on our custom gun pages. For work other than packages, please visit our services and rates page where you can pick and choose the custom work you wish to do. For pistolsmithing questions, please either fill out our contact form or call.

How do I order?

Please either fill out our contact form or call.

How long does it take to do…?

Any time period we may quote you on the phone is nothing more than an estimate. Our rifles and handguns are primarily hand built and we insist on a quality product. This means, of course, that building a firearm takes a great deal of time. In addition, our products are in high demand, and we have numerous orders. We ALWAYS contact you IMMEDIATELY upon your project being finished and ready to ship. Calling us and asking about the status of your order only slows up the process!

How do I ship my rifle or handgun to you?

You can use UPS, FedEx or insured Priority Mail for rifles. Handguns may only be shipped by UPS or FedEx. Do not ship handguns by mail! All firearms must be unloaded. Do not send slings or cases or other accessories. We repeat, DO NOT SEND THESE ITEMS, ESPECIALLY CASES. Shipping is expensive, keep the weight down. You do not need to use an FFL holder to ship your personally owned rifle to us! For more details visit our shipping information page.

How do you ship my rifle or handgun to me?
