Shipping A Gun To Us

Yes, it is legal1 2 to ship guns to Classic American Gunsmith for us to work on.

When shipping a gun to us, make sure of the following:

      • Pack the gun securely.
      • Insure the gun for its replacement value.
      • Include a letter with your full name, address, telephone number, email address, and detailed information regarding the gunsmithing services you wish us to perform on the gun.
      • Do not include any ammunition with the shipment.
      • If shipping ammunition or ammunition components is required for gunsmithing services being performed, ship them in a separate shipment from the gun.

When we receive the shipment the gunsmith working on your project will contact you by telephone to discuss your requirements in detail. Please be prepared to provide payment information during that conversation.

Your gun will be shipped back to you at the address specified on the received shipping container via the United States Postal Service (USPS) unless otherwise stated in advance.

Shipping A Gun To Another FFL

$20 plus shipping/insurance

We can ship guns to another licensee for you. Just drop off the gun and we will take care of the paperwork, packing (we can even provide the box if you need one), and shipment for you.

All guns are shipped via United States Postal Service (USPS) unless otherwise stated in advance.

Please note: If you are shipping a gun to an FFL for the “… sole purpose of repair or customizing, and the same firearm or a replacement firearm is returned to …” you, then 27 CFR § 478.124(a)) states that you are not required to use an FFL in your state to send or receive the gun. This does not mean that you will not meet resistance from the shipping companies who have their own additional requirements for shipping firearms. It just means that you are not breaking any Federal laws by doing so.3
