    More about our Return Policy.


    You can return any firearm to us provided that you haven't picked it up from your dealer.

    While the firearm is still in the possession of your dealer, please inspect the firearm thoroughly to ensure that there are no visible defects. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, please contact us before picking up the firearm from your dealer. We can arrange to have it returned to us, and upon delivery and careful inspection of the firearm, we will provide you with your choice of either a replacement, if available, or a refund of the firearm.

    Return shipping costs and/or restocking fees may be deducted from your refund depending on the reason for return.

    You can reach us toll-free at 855-755-0523 Monday-Friday between 9am and 5pm Eastern time. We will be happy to work through any issues you may have.


    Refunds will be issued in the same payment form as tendered at the time of purchase. You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper; however, in many cases you will receive your refund more quickly.

    This time period includes the transit time for us to receive the return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes for us to process your return once it has been delivered back to us (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes for your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).


    Orders placed using Gift Cards/Gift Certificates as payment will be refunded in the form of a Gift Certificate. The Gift Certificate number will be emailed to your e-mail address on file.


    Yes! If we lower the price on an item you ordered from Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore within 5 days of your original purchase, you may contact us anytime within that 5 day time frame, and we'll be happy to issue the difference in the form of a store credit.*

    *Items listed on our Weekly Deals page(s) are exempt from any price matching for previous purchases. Prices during our Black Friday and Cyber Monday sale are also exempt from price matching. Prices are subject to market conditions.

Product and Ordering Questions

    The inventory and availability of products on SportsmansOutdoorSuperstore.com is real-time and reflects what is in stock at the moment. Once a product is out of stock, the "Add to Cart" option will no longer be available.


    We are very sorry that the item you need is out of stock. On the item page, next to the product photo, there is a link that says "Notify Me When Available". If you click on that link, you will see a popup that will let you add your email address to our notification list. When that item becomes available you will receive an automated email letting you know that your item is available for purchase.

    Signing up for the notification list does not hold an item for you, and it does not obligate you to make a purchase so you are welcome to shop around while you wait. Items are available on a 'first come, first served' basis, so please make sure that you place your order quickly.


    We are sorry that you were not able to complete your order. The inventory and availability of products on SportsmansOutdoorSuperstore.com is real-time and reflects what is in stock at that moment. Placing an item in your shopping cart does not guarantee that item for you, until you have completed the checkout process. Until checkout is complete, another customer may purchase the item even if it is in your cart.

    Please contact our Customer Service team toll-free at 855-755-0523 immediately if you need to change or cancel an order. If it is after business hours, please contact us through e-mail.

    Important: Orders that have entered the shipping process can't be modified. If your order is being prepared for shipment, it cannot be changed by you or by our customer service team. At that point, you have the option of refusing the package or returning it to us.


    You can view the status of your order by logging into your account and clicking on Your Orders.


    Once we have processed your shipping label, and until the package has been scanned by the shipping carrier, there may be a delay before you start seeing tracking details. This may take up to 24 hours to update on the carrier's website.

Shipping & Delivery

    After an order has shipped, you can find tracking information in your order details by checking your order status. Once your package has shipped, there will be a tracking number available that you can use on the FedEx or USPS website, depending on which carrier shipped your package.


    Shipping charges depend on the product(s) being ordered. Standard shipping for firearms is free. Orders containing ammunition or reloading products will have additional shipping charges. For more information on our shipping charges, please visit our Shipping Information page.


    Most orders shipped by Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore are sent by FedEx. You may request that we ship USPS, but this may include additional shipping charges. We do not use UPS as a shipping carrier.


    We currently do not offer shipping outside of the continental United States, Alaska, and Hawaii.

    There are a few factors that may delay the shipment of a firearm. These include, but are not limited to:

    • Whether we have the receiving dealer's Federal Firearms License (FFL) on file, or if we need to obtain that from them
    • Receiving proper credentials for law enforcement firearm purchases
    • "Non-compliant" firearms being shipped to a state with restrictions (such as California). This may require approval from the receiving dealer and/or additional documentation

    Unfortunately, many of the factors that could delay a firearm shipment are out of our control. However, there are a couple things you can do that may minimize the chance of a delay:

    • Choosing an FFL dealer from our database. These dealers are on file with us, which means we already have a copy of their FFL.
    • Verifying that the firearm you want to purchase is legal in your city or state. Even if you choose an FFL dealer from our database, this doesn't guarantee that we have the additional, relevant documentation required for "non-compliant" firearms. There may be additional paperwork required that is unique to each purchase, or documentation that the FFL dealer has to send to us.

    If your package contains a firearm and has already been shipped, the shipping address cannot be changed. To change the shipping address on an eligible package, there is a $15 fee per package.

    Packages that contain $350 or more of merchandise may require a signature; otherwise, it is generally up to the driver's discretion to determine whether a signature is required. All packages containing a firearm will always require an adult signature. After three delivery attempts, the package will be returned to us.

Buying Guns Online

    Yes, you can purchase a firearm online just like any other product. The only difference is that we cannot ship a firearm directly to you. A firearm must be shipped to a licensed firearms dealer, where you can pick it up.


    No, we can not ship a firearm to your house, unless you have an FFL.


    An "FFL" is a Federal Firearm License. These licenses are commonly held by gun stores, pawn shops, and sporting goods stores. However, there are also many individuals that hold a FFL.


    With thousands of FFL dealers across the country, there's a good chance you have a few nearby. You can find one by searching our FFL Dealer Locator.

    When you place your order with us, the FFL Dealer Locator will let you choose a dealer to have your firearm transferred and shipped to.


    Yes, you must contact the FFL dealer you've chosen to make them aware of the transfer and to make any necessary arrangements for picking up your firearm. It is also recommended that you inquire about any possible transfer fees they may charge.

    By not contacting the dealer, there is a higher chance that the dealer will not accept your firearm, or that the dealer will not be available when the package is expected to arrive. If the firearm is returned to us for one of these reasons, additional shipping charges and/or return fees may apply.


    Yes, but not through us. Any necessary paperwork and background check is completed between you (the actual buyer/transferee) and the receiving dealer. This is usually done at the time you pick up your firearm.


    When first contacting the dealer you've chosen, it is recommended that you make arrangements with them to pick up your firearm. When we ship your firearm, we include your contact information in the package. Most dealers will use this information to notify you once the firearm is ready to be picked up.

    Some dealers may require extra time before a firearm is ready to be picked up. If you see that the package has been delivered, but you haven't received a call from the dealer, you may also contact them yourself to inquire when the firearm will be ready.


    You can return any firearm to us provided that you haven't picked it up from your dealer.

    While the firearm is still in the possession of your dealer, please inspect the firearm thoroughly to ensure that there are no visible defects. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, please contact us before picking up the firearm from your dealer. We can arrange to have it returned to us, and upon delivery and careful inspection of the firearm, we will provide you with your choice of either a replacement, if available, or a refund of the firearm.

    Return shipping costs and/or a restocking fee may be deducted from your refund depending on the reason for return.

    You can reach us toll-free at 855-755-0523 Monday-Friday between 9am and 5pm Eastern time. We will be happy to work through any issues you may have.
