PLEASE READ BEFORE BIDDING
By bidding and purchasing anything from us, you as a Buyer agree to our Terms of Sale and Return Policy shown here. We assume no legal liability for any errors or omissions in the description of any item. No items are being offered for sale where any Federal, State or Local Law prohibits them from being sold. You as a perspective Buyer must be over 20 years of age to purchase any antique (pre-January 1, 1899 manufactured) or modern (January 1, 1899 and later manufactured) firearm, ammunition or edged weapon from us. ALL FIREARMS are sold as Collector Items Only. NO firearms sold by us - antique or modern (that is pre or post January 1, 1899 manufacture) are warranted for any type of shoot ability or other use under any circumstances. We only make visual inspections for selling description purposes. No firearms we sell have been test fired by us. If a Buyer wishes to fire or use any firearm purchased from us for any purpose other than display, the Buyer must have that firearm and all its features related to shooting and safe handling inspected and certified for safe shoot ability or other specific use desired by a FEDERALLY LICENSED GUNSMITH of their choosing. Such certification shall be between the BUYER and that FEDERALLY LICENSED GUNSMITH.
FOR MODERN FIREARMS PURCHASES NOT CURIO AND RELICS LISTED
A signed copy of an FFL license is required for shipping to the address on the license. The FFL license must be signed and sent to us in the mail, or it may be signed and faxed to us. (Please ask for our fax number.) We prefer an original signed copy as many faxes are not readable as many of you know.
We will hold items five (5) business days for the payment of the purchased item and its shipping cost, license receipt and any other documentation required to complete the transaction. We prefer bank checks or postal money orders. Personal checks are deposited for 10 business days (Monday-Friday) before the item is shipped. We do not accept credit cards at this time in order to keep expenses lower. We cannot accept PAY PAL for firearms sales. Illinois purchases are subject to 9% sales tax if no resale certificate is presented.
SHIPPINGWe normally ship all handguns and most long guns via the USPS. We ship items priority rate, insured with delivery confirmation. The total delivery cost including packaging costs listed in each auction is for delivery to MOST addresses in the United States. Depending on zip code and insurance costs (if insurance is desired), the delivery cost may be more or less. We recalculate shipping and insurance costs for each item after we know the final selling price and the delivery address zip code and advise the buyer.
INSPECTION AND RETURN POLICY
There is a (3) day Monday through Saturday non-firing, non-disassembly inspection beginning with the day of first attempted delivery to the addressee. We will not accept a return if the reason for the return is for something that is mentioned in our description of the item or is clearly visible in one or more of the photographs presented in the auction advertising for the item. No shipping costs will be reimbursed by us. It is the Buyer’s responsibility to have the purchase inspected within the three (3) day inspection period. We must be notified of the Buyer’s intension to return an item at the end of the three (3) day inspection period. Please do not return any item until we acknowledge the notice of intension to return as there may be no one here to receive the item if there is an emergency or other uncontrollable circumstance. We will make allowances for the return of any item of course in such circumstances. All items must be returned in the exact condition as received. It is the responsibility of the Buyer to repack the item in such a manner that it is not damaged during its return. The returning shipper and class of service used must be the same as used by the seller in shipping to the addressee unless another means of return is agreed upon by the use the seller. The Buyer must insure the item being returned for its fully purchased value in U.S. dollars. No item may be returned that has been fired, disassembled, damaged or its accessories damaged or removed. This includes damage to original boxes, paper items and accessories that were part of the sale. Damaged shipments may require inspection at the addressee’s premises. Please keep all original shipping materials until we know they are no longer needed for inspection. We very seldom have anything damaged in shipment, and we seldom have anything returned.
We have been federally licensed firearms dealers for over 30 years dealing in antique and modern firearms, edged weapons and their accessories. This is our full time business. Though we direct our business toward the older collectibles, we do purchase many contemporary firearms that are recently discontinued or at times still in production. We offer nothing that is new from a distributor. Everything we offer for sale is pre-owned.
We will try our best to present the condition of all items offered through our descriptions and photos. If there are any questions, please direct them to us. We will try to answer all emails. We prefer to handle all correspondence via emails if at all possible. We may be unavailable on some weekends to answer emails. We will not close auctions early. We have no public sales facilities for viewing or purchase. All items must be shipped. We reserve the right to re-list any item if the Auction Arms.Com web site is unavailable at anytime during the last 12 hours of any of our auction closings.
We will leave FEEDBACK for all Buyers, and trust they will do the same for us.
GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR BIDDING!!
