Shipping Policy

Firearms are shipped via United Parcel Service (UPS) for a flat fee of $39.00 to the contiguous 48 United States, which includes the cost of shipping, a padded or hard shell case, and insurance. An adult signature is required for delivery.

Non-firearm shipments are shipped via UPS at UPS' calculated rate.

Orders to Alaska and Hawaii are shipped via UPS at UPS' calculated rate, based on destination, package size, weight, and any applicable "Remote Area/Extended Area" surcharges. We are not able to extend the $39 flat fee shipping rate to Alaska and Hawaii due to the high cost of shipping. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

By placing an order with Edelweiss Arms, you affirm that you are of legal age in your jurisdiction and are not federally prohibited from purchasing and acquiring firearms and ammunition.
