guns are normal and normal people build guns

One of the ordinary modes, by which tyrants accomplish their purposes without resistance, is, by disarming the people, and making it an offense to keep arms. 

Joseph Story, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States

Returning Defective Items

We want your experience with us to be the best. You deserve quality lowers and gun parts! If you ever receive an item from us that is defective, broken, or otherwise deficient, we want you to return it. We’ll work to make it right for you. Get in touch with us to start the return process as soon as possible. For returns of lower receivers, please read below.

Returning an 80% Lower Receiver/Frame Kit

80% Lower Receivers/Frame Kits are very rarely manufactured out-of-spec or with incorrect tolerances. We will replace these - once again, in very rare circumstances. Do not attempt to machine an 80% Lower Receiver/Frame Kit if you notice a defect. If you started the machining process, please stop immediately and contact us. An 80% Lower Receiver/Frame Kit may be classified a firearm under the Gun Control Act of 1968 when partially machined. We cannot accept returns on any 80% Lower Receiver/Frame Kit that may be considered a firearm. But that does not necessarily mean we can’t accept your return. Keep reading:

Partial or Completed 80% Lower Receiver/Frame Kit Returns

If your lower is completed or partially completed and is found to be defective by no fault of your own, we’ll work with you to replace it. Do not do anything further to the lower. First, give us a call or send us an email. We will attempt to diagnose the issue with you. We may ask that you submit some photos of the defect and the current state of the lower receiver to confirm the defect. If we can determine your partial or completed lower is defective, we’ll discuss with you how to legally and safely return it. Remember, we cannot accept returns on any items that may be considered a firearm. We cannot accept a return on any lower receiver with any other parts installed on it. Returning a partially-machined or completed lower may require destruction to make it inoperable, such as cutting the lower in half. This is the only way to guarantee your safety and ours.

CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS

Canceling an Order

You may place an order and decide you no longer need that item. It happens! If you place an order and wish to cancel, please contact us as soon as possible. We work quickly to process, box, and ship orders the same or next day. Canceled orders may be subject to a 30% re-stocking fee once placed. The sooner you contact us, the better!

Refunds

Refunds are processed within 2 business days of receiving your item back into our inventory. We will process your refund with your original payment method. We’ll also email you a copy of your refund receipt for your records. Upon initiation of a refund, it may take up to 3 to 7 business days for the funds to appear in your account.
