Terms and Conditions
The nature of custom firearms is that they are inherently custom built. This creates the necessity that custom-made and custom-machined parts may be ordered and built to specification. These parts are generally not interchangeable from rifle to rifle and as such all custom parts require full payment at the time of order. Subsequently, upon build commission and payment for parts the Customer becomes the owner of these items. No custom parts will be ordered without payment for these custom components and no services shall commence without all parts on hand.
Should the Customer decide to change these parts or discontinue the build commission prior to completion of the rifle project all of the parts are property of the owner and will be returned to the owner immediately upon request and payment of any outstanding component or labor charges associated with said components. Labor charges associated will be billed at $150/hr with a minimum bench fee of $75 if there is not already a published price for the work performed.
