Shipping and International Sales

Shipping costs in Canada, via Canada Post, tracked, with signature required, are included in your purchase price.  Insurance can be added for $2.50/$100 of coverage, at your option.  International shipping costs are not included in your purchase price.  Know your nation's legal requiremets related to cross border movement of firearms before ordering.  International sales are welcome

Firearm Descriptions

We use our best efforts to describe the listed firearms as thoroughy as possible, but if you have specific questons about your selection, do ask your questions before buying, as all sales are final.  Do feel free to have your gunsmith inspect your purchase, prior to you firing it.  Safety first.  All of the listed firearms are over 120 yars old, and whether they are immaculate, or project guns that need repair, you are fully responsibe for any risks associated with their use.  There is no warranty on the antique or used firearms listed, and they are sold as is. 

Is a PAL required to own Antique Firearms

Obtaining and maintaining a PAL is an excellent way to ensure that you have a minimum understanding of the responsibililites of a gun owner in Canada.  Though a PAL is not required if Antique Firearms are the only firearms that you own, many owners of Antiques are ambassadors for responsible firearms ownership, and maintain a PAL.  A PAL is required to purchase ammunition.  Be prepared to provide proof of age for your Antique purchase if asked

Ammunition Sales

Any ammunition purchased here must be shipped via ground carriers.  Our preferred ammo carrier is Canpar, and the costs of ammo shipping are additional to the ammo price.  Regardless of it's source, vintage and period ammo is not guaranteed to be useable, so when buying vintage ammo here, do accept that it too is sold as is, wihout warranty.  A PAL is required for ammo purchases

Payment Options and Layaway

When the right antique shows up for you, there is always the chance that the timing is wrong for you to buy it.  Relax.  A deposit will hold your gun and deem it sold, and you can take time to pay the remaining balance due on your purchase.  Payment options include cash, EMT, wire transfer, cheque, and coming soon, credit card
