Which shipping method is the best?
Different shipping methods are fits for different countries and different kinds of product you have purchased. In most cases, we strongly suggest you to use World Wide express rather than Airmail. Although it is more expensive, you can get the parcel really fast and you can easily check the delivery status. For any not received case in HK post airmail, yes they provide an inquiry system but the investigation period is extremely long, mostly 2-8 weeks, or even longer.
If you are buying some small parts from us and the order do not include any high value item, you may selected Airmail for lower shipping cost. Beware of the compensation of different delivery companies, for more information, please click here.
How much is my shipping?
Our online shopping system will calculate the total shipping cost for you. The shipping cost depends on what your are ordering, the weight and dimensions of your parcel. The heavier and larger your order is, the more it will cost to ship. However, there are economies of scale and shipping cost per kilograms decreases as the package gets heavier. As such the per gun shipping cost is more expensive for one gun than if you ordered two guns. It’s always more cost effective to ship more in one package than to ship separately.
