Under federal law, any lawful gun owner may ship a firearm to Grayguns Inc. – or any other FFL holder – via common carrier like FedEx for purposes of repair or modification and receive it back directly. You do not need to ship your pistol through a dealer unless your local or state laws require it. You may be able to save money by shipping through your local FFL. See below for additional information.
Your securely packaged pistol should be taken directly to a FedEx service center for shipment. Affiliated shipping agents such as mailbox stores and copy centers are not permitted to accept firearms. You are required by law to notify the counter person of the contents of your package.
Be sure to insure your package for full replacement value. FedEx requires handguns to be shipped overnight. Selecting a slower service will save some money but may result in a denial of your insurance claim in the event of loss.
Unless you have a FFL do not ship handguns to Grayguns Inc. through the US Post Office.

Do you have any other suggestions about shipping firearms?
Yes, we do.
- Check with your friendly local FFL dealer to see if they will ship your firearm to us by US Postal Mail. This may save you money as compared to shipping FedEx Overnight services*.
- If you do ship via FedEx Priority Overnight, we encourage you included a FedEx pre-paid Priority Overnight return label with your firearm and work order. Return labels you send to us must be for a Priority Overnight and marked Adult Signature Required, or they can not be used for return shipment. No exceptions.
*What qualifies as FedEx Overnight Service?
Per the 2019 FedEx Service Guide, Page 140, Firearms, Section C:
Firearms must be shipped via FedEx Priority Overnight service. FedEx Express cannot ship or deliver firearms C.O.D. Firearms shipments cannot be placed in a FedEx Drop Box. Firearms shipments are not eligible to be held at Hold at [sic] Location facilities.
What if I don’t want to send a pre-paid label?
No problem. Grayguns can create return labels and add the shipping cost to your invoice.
What about UPS?
Since we've moved our operation to Reedsport, Oregon, we're finding the FedEx service is much more reliable than UPS and we have a very good relationship with the FedEx team in our area.
