    Work Schedule

   I work from 7am to 4pm 5-6 days a week. Business hours are from 8am to 4pm. All invoices are numerical and done in that order. I don't put anyone ahead of anyone else for ANY reason. 

Fine custom work takes time to do right. Nothing I do is rushed.



  Turn Around Time - Gunsmithing Only

  If the work you need done is gunsmithing only and does not include making grips, the turn around time will be "within 45 days". You do not need to be put on my Waiting List. You can call me to discuss the work and mail me the firearm/s at any time.  If the work you want done includes making grips, please refer to the statement below. 


Turn Around Time For Work That Includes Grips 

      I used to take firearms in all the time and have people wait seven to eight months to get them back. In November of 2017 I decided to start working from a Waiting List. This way you wait seven to eight months, but have the firearm/s in your possession. Once I call you and receive your firearm/s it will most likely be a one to two month wait. This depends on if you were in the first or second half of the group I called. I will call people on the Waiting List in numerical order, 17-20 at a time, as I have space open up. The list has 120-140 people in line at any given time. I start over every 200. If you wish to be on the list I will need your name and phone number. Email or call me.  

    My waiting list is a serious document to me, unlike some companies I have dealt with. No one is ever put ahead or behind anyone for any reason. My close friends as well as first time customers know this to be true. Everyone gets a phone call back from me when their number is up. There are no hard feelings if you have changed your mind by that time.

     Please do not get upset if it takes an extra month. Some custom silverwork designs I make can take three weeks for one firearm. It is VERY hard to predict, with accuracy, turn-around time. I am the only person in the U.S. with this skillset and my work is in demand.




Method of Payment

    Personal checks or cashiers checks made out to "Joe Perkins". I have a separtate set of accounts in my name for my business. Not working with credit cards also saves you money and me headaches.




Shipping Guidelines 

I have an FFL, so it is legal to send me your firearm for gunsmithing or grips. It must be returned to the address I received it from or another FFL.


Standard return shipping is $25.00 for 1-2 guns, $35 for 3 guns, $50 for 4 guns.

2nd Day Air - $58.    Overnight - $98


Do not ship firearms that will arrive over the week-end, (US Mail). There will be no one at the shop to sign for them. 


 Do not ship two firearms in flat clamshell cases that hold two guns. These get shipped upright by Fedex and UPS. The guns will shift and will be damaged. 


Please do not ship me firearms or money until we have spoken on the phone.
