Handling, Packing and Shipping Prices given on guns are for the Continental US only. People buying guns from Alaska, Hawaii or areas outside the continental US, should email Homestead Firearms for actual shipping charges. We ship long guns by USPS Parcel Post surface Mail and pistols by Priority Mail, unless requested to ship by another method or Carrier (also see Policies Section). The USPS does not have a tracking number, but we use a delivery numbered form for all guns that we ship and do obtain a delivery confirmation slip for all items over $25.00. Other shipment options can be selected and added from the drop-down menus on the shop cart electronic order-form. Special handling is possible provided that the customer Emails us prior to the day of shipping.
We do apologize for the need to slightly increase our handling, packing and shipping rates, as all shipping carriers have greatly increased their fees. As a rule, shipping and handling for small rifles is $38.00. Shipping and handling for mid-weight rifles (e.g., 1873 or Model 70 Winchester) is $40.00. For heavier rifles (e.g., old military rifles) the price is $43. Pistols are $25.00 to ship Priority and $30.00 to ship Express Mail.
Shipping and handling for parts and ammunition varies with weight and size. Shipping cost is identified on each item. We have tried to keep our shipping and handling fees at a minimum for all of our valued customers.
