 *NOTE - *MAIN PAGE/*MOBILE PAGE ORDER PROCESSING TIMES:  The time noted on the Shopping Cart page, second paragraph of the main website as well as on the *MOBILE VERSION of our site are only an approximation of order processing (shipping label created/handed off to builders/shippers). IT IS NOT A GUARANTEE.  IT IS NOT A DELIVERY TIME.  IT DOES NOT, CANNOT PERTAIN TO FIREARM ORDERS.  We are a small business and are not normally here in the warehouse on weekends (no UPS/USPS pick up on weekends regardless).  Site times are ALWAYS in "Business Days" (Monday-Friday not counting holidays).

Also, we do pre-build items like our AR15 complete uppers and lowers, however if demand exhausts our supply then those orders can be delayed while we build more.  We do still only sell what we have the parts to create, and our delayed completes at most have delayed order shipping up to about another week beyond the site's stated order processing times (unlike certain competitors that have back ordered paid-for products many weeks and months, that is not our practice).

Sales Tax:  US Supreme Court ruling South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc.:

After the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in South Dakota v. Wayfair, we may be required to collect state sales tax for your purchase.  

Currently our site's automated sales tax function only works for Washington state.  We are working to update our system to include the function for the other states.  In the mean time if you place an order to ship to a state that has sales tax you will be contacted by a sales rep. to approve the addition of your state sales tax rate to your order, until we can get the automated function built into our site.

We are working to get our site fully functional with the automated sales tax for those other states that require it and we sincerely appreciate your working with us in the mean time.
