Important Things to Note:



I appologize for any inconvience caused by lack of updates to the web site. I do the best I can to update this website when the need arises.


1. I am closer to getting a shopping cart for ordering products. I am hoping to have this up and running shortly.


2. The website has been updated to reflect new product and pricing. The modest price increase reflects the increased cost of raw materials.


3. If you call, please leave a message!!!!!! I understand that you would rather speak to a person when you call. If you must speak to a person when you call, please call after 7pm EST any evening (757-866-8819) and I will be happy to talk to you. However, please know that quickest way to contact me is through email at and I will get back to you as soon as possible.


4. Also, this is our personal telephone line as well as the sutlery and we are located in the Eastern Standard Time Zone and would appreciate tremendously if, when you call to be conscience of the time difference when you are calling (especially those on the West Coast).


5. While making orders, I am trying to build up stock again. Please email or call with your inquiries to see what I have managed to get done an in stock. However, as I said I am working and I try my best to get orders done in a reasonable period. Please understand that sometimes life does get in the way of the completion dates for order.


6. I have a new gunsmith with new and far better guns that I have ever had previously. There is no plans at the moment to put them on the website given the present back log of orders. Call to see what I may have in stock at the moment that might not be on order.


7. I am not set up to have a retail shop location. This is something that the City will not allow.









Shipping: All packages will be sent USPS Priority Mail - Delivery Confirmation. If you prefer not to check with me to calculate the charges for you, shipping is 20%, but, the minimum shipping charge will be $5.00. I am not close to a Fedex or UPS facility and will not ship them that way unless absolutely necessary.

Returns and exchanges: There will be a 15% restocking charge for anything returned, the only exception being something exchanged for the same item in a different size. If there are signs of disassembled or otherwise worked over to find out how they're made. The designs are not copyrightable, but I have very lousy feelings for anyone who uses one of my items to copy it, and then doesn't have the courtesy to pay for the original. Also, shipping is non-refundable. If you return an item even for size, please note that you will be charged shipping on the replacement item I send you and you will be credited for returning the original item.





Terms are Cash, Check, MasterCard, Visa, Discover or PayPal upon completion for all items unless other arrangements have been made. Checks and Money Orders must clear my bank before any order is shipped. For all orders out-of-country, please contact me for shipping amounts and to discuss delivery options.


Current sales tax rates I use:

Virginia residents, add 5.3%.

Internet address: I check this account a minimum of once a day, per business day, and usually reply immediately unless we are away at an event or away for some other reason:

I do not have a separate fax number now. If you need to fax me, call or email and I will set up the fax machine. However, your best course is always e-mail.

The Sutlery is a one person operation and being that I am working outside the home may get the voice mail. Please note that I will call you back if you leave a message with a telephone number.
