Shipping & Returns

Contact us via e-mail at or by phone 818-422-3316 to discuss the item and place it on hold. You must be 21 years of age.  We take these calls and e-mails in the order received on a first come first served basis (please leave a message if you have to).  We keep all transactions confidential and do not sell or lease our customer list.  Trades may be considered on certain items.  Layaways are available with 1/3 down, balance due in 60 days.  Unfortunately we do not offer return privileges on layaway purchases due to the lengthy period of time the item has to be held.  Once a commitment towards purchase has been made via phone or e-mail, the item will be reserved for a period of 10 days during which time payment must be received.  Firearms listed after 1898 will have to be shipped to an FFL or Curio and Relics license holder where applicable.  No exceptions.  Pre-1898 antiques can be shipped to non-FFL holders.  We prefer certified forms of payment such as money orders or bank checks.  Personal checks are acceptable, and we will ship as soon as payment clears with our bank.  All firearms manufactured after December 31, 1898 require a Federal Firearms License.  Please forward a signed copy of a Federal Firearms License with your payment.  All checks or money orders should be made out to David B. French.

All guns are sold as collector's items, not shooters.  If you are even thinking of shooting an item we have listed here, it is mandatory that you have the item checked out by a competent gunsmith who specializes in antique firearms.  Prices are subject to change without notice and availability is subject to prior sale.  Shipping is through Fed-X, UPS, or USPS at our discretion and will have to be insured at buyers expense and must have an adult signature.  Buyer will be provided with a tracking number and will need to be on hand to accept shipment that day, the second attempt to deliver will start your three day return privileges.

We offer a three day return policy (no questions asked) if you are not satisfied with your purchase. Just call 818-422-3316 or e-mail to say you are returning the item, and you will receive an immediate refund when the item is received back in the same condition in which it was shipped.  Firing or taking the item apart (please do not even turn a screw) will void return privileges; no exceptions.
