Shipping Guidelines

Ship packages to “Joe Perkins” not Classic Single Action. If I emailed you a quote after talking on the phone, please include a copy with the shipment. If a quote was not requested, please download and print the Order Form below and include a copy with the shipment. I cannot work on your revolvers or log them into my FFL books if I do not have this information. 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 to an FFL. Again, the “Order Form” must be included with the shipment.


Standard return shipping is $40.00 for 1-2 guns. Add $10 for each additional revolver. 

2nd Day Air & Overnight – POR


Do not ship two firearms in one flat clamshell case. These get shipped upright by Fedex and UPS. The guns will shift and will be damaged by hitting eachother.


Work Schedule

     I work from 7am to 5pm, 5 days a week. Business hours are from 8am to 4pm M-F. 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. My gunsmith work, grip making and silverwork are highly sought after. Everything you see on my web site is created solely by me. I don’t buy any prefabricated pieces or farm out any work.


Turn Around Time

    I work from a Waiting List. Currently there are more than 350 people on the list and the wait is about 24+ months. Once you see the quality of my work you will understand. See the Customer Comments page.  If you wish to be on the list, I need your phone number. Once I call you and then receive your firearm/s, it will most likely be a 1 to 2 month wait. This depends on if you were in the first or second half of the 20 names that I called. I call people on the Waiting List in numerical order, 20 at a time. This means I receive 30-40 revolvers. Some customers that don’t mind shipping me their revolver twice, send their revolver in for gunsmithing now. I send it back to them whithin 45 days and then they send it back to me when they get the call for grips. Call me if this is an option you want to explore.

    My Waiting List is a serious document to me, unlike some companies I have dealt with. No one is ever put ahead, moved back or “forgotten” for any reason.  My close friends as well as first time customers know this to be true. Everyone gets a phone call from me when their number is up. I do apologize, but I have removed a couple of people for being jerks. If you have changed your mind by the time I call you, it is not a problem. Do not feel bad. I just move on down the list. I start the number sequence over every 400. If you would like to check your position on the list, just click the link to the right. Waiting List


Something to Consider 

   You can call me every 3 months to have your name put on the Waiting List again. That way you have a spot every 3 months after the first waiting period. If I call you and you don’t have work to be done, no worries, I just move down the list and you get another call 3 months later. Many of my customers have found this system to work really well for them.



Turn Around Time if You Want Gunsmith Work Only

    If the services you need done are gunsmith work only, the turn around time should be within 45 days. You do not need to be put on the Waiting List. You can call me to discuss the work and mail me the firearm/s with the Order Form any time after that.



Method of Payment

    Personal checks or cashiers checks should be made out to “Joe Perkins”. I have a separtate set of accounts in my name for my business. Lower monthly banking fees means lower costs to you. Not working with credit cards also saves you money and me headaches. I operate with a legitimate tax ID certificate and pay Arizona State sales taxes. Cash or check, all sales are recorded. In 2023 I paid $3862.43 to the Arizona Department of Revenue. Arizona residents pay sales tax on grips and parts.



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


Include the Order Form.


I will not proceed with work on your revolver/s unless I receive the Order Form in the shipment.
