the best price for you, while providing a good value to our customers.

we will usually work with you on our fee. We will not accept any transfer unless we are notified ahead of time
and have spoken to the buyer and the shipping dealer. The Shipping Dealer must send us a signed copy of
their FFL, and the firearm must be determined to be Massachusetts compliant.

your own firearm, DO NOT SEAL THE BOX. We must check the serial number on the firearm before shipping.

guns, gun parts and optics. If there is an issue with any of these products, we will work with the manufacturer to

qualify for returns.
Pre-owned firearms will have a 3 day inspection period from the date of purchase. If there is a manufacturers
defect, we will work with you in getting the firearm repaired. After that time, I will help facilitate communication
with the manufacturer, but shipping and repair charges will be the responsibility of the new owner. New guns
cannot be returned. If there is a manufacturers defect, we will work with you in getting the firearm repaired.
