Returns must have an advance letter.
I don't keep records so I can't tell who you are by your name or return address
on the package.
In the past, some people have sent me items for my unsolicited examination hoping that I would make an item like it, then they claim royalty payments. (In 1987 one guy claimed I stole his idea to make muzzle couplings and that I owed him money for that.)
I made my first coupling in 1972. Maxim, Brown and Parker started making muzzle couplings before WWI.
I don't record addresses and I don't have a mailing list. You won't hear from me again. Keep my address if you want to send for a catalog sometime in the future. A printed catalog can be sent with an order, on request.
I try to keep prices low, but I must keep costs low. So I ask for a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope with all inquiries so I can send you a reply, or return your check if a one of a kind item you want is already sold.
I do not accept certified mail or any mail requiring a signature.
Shipping is $4. per order, no minimum. So whether your order is for $10. or $1000., shipping is still just $4. for the entire order.
May 2008 is my first shipping rate increase since March 1997.
