Everything shown on the website is in my personal possession. I don't advertise what I don't have. I try to post definitive pictures, but website space only allows so much. More pictures are available by email upon request, and I can always take specific views that you may want.


Buyer pays actual shipping cost only. I use a professional packing service for all the long guns and more expensive items. AN UPDATED NOTE: On all handguns and small items, I ship U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail insured. It is the best I have found, and is halfway reasonable for domestic and international shipments. Books go USPS Media Mail. Now for the bad news: I have to ship the longrifles by UPS. Their rates and insurance are terrible, but it's the only game in town. I strap them to a 1x4 and have them professionally packed. Not cheap, but reasonably effective. Average cost is now running $50 to $75, depending on weight and distance. This figure is for U.S. shipments only. International shipments are almost out of the question for long guns. Rates are running $150 and up, and I know no cheaper way to ship them. Please bear in mind that I only charge what it costs me.


You must contact me personally by phone or email to arrange payment. I do not take credit cards or PayPal. Money Orders or cashier's checks are accepted. While you may think this policy is inconvenient, it's for your protection as well as mine. With all the scams and bogus websites out there, I find it reassuring to be able to deal with a real person and hope you share that view.

Inspection Period

I extend a 3-day inspection, and purchase price is refunded if, AND ONLY IF, item is returned in same condition as originally shipped to you.


From time to time I place items on auction sites, primarily antiqueguns.com, gunbroker.com, and a-gun.com. My handle on antiqueguns.com is James H. Francis; for gunbrokers.com and a-guns.com it is KMKFLASH.
