Shipping Firearms

Under federal law, any lawful gun owner may ship a firearm to Grayguns Inc. – or any other FFL holder – via common carrier like UPS 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 UPS 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. UPS requires handguns to be shipped via next day air. 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.

  1. 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 UPS Next Day Air Services*.
  2. If you do ship via UPS Next Day Air Service, we encourage you included a UPS pre-paid Next Day Air Service return label with your firearm and work order. Return labels you send to us must be for a Next-Day Air Service and marked Adult Signature Required, or they can not be used for return shipment. No exceptions.

*What qualifies as a UPS Next Day Air Service?

Specifically UPS requires firearms to be shipped by one of their UPS Next Day Air Services. This includes:

  • UPS Next Day Air® Early A.M.®
  • UPS Next Day Air® or
  • UPS Next Day Air Saver®

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 FedEx?

The service provided by FedEx to our Spray, Oregon facility is very slow. FedEx “overnight” packages routinely take three to four days to arrive.
