Order Cancellation Policy

Once an order has been placed, there is a very short time frame where we are actually able to cancel it, so we cannot guarantee that we will be able to cancel any order.

During normal business hours, which are Monday - Friday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. CST, once an order is placed there is a 30 minute remorse window where the customer can call customer service at 800-764-6090 to update or cancel their order. After 30 minutes, we are unable to make any changes or cancellations to an order. Please note, in most cases, we will be unable to cancel an order once placed.

Should cancellation not be possible, you can refuse delivery of the package, and a refund will be issued upon return receipt of the package. Alternatively, you can contact us for a Returns Authorization (RMA) and return instructions, so we can make sure the issue is resolved promptly.

Satisfaction Guarantee Policy

The USAGO offers a 30 Day, 100% satisfaction guarantee for membership.

Purchasing Policies:
  • Purchasing Firearms
    It is illegal to ship firearms to anyone not holding an active Federal Firearms License (FFL). For that reason, firearms purchased online may be picked up at our store or shipped to an FFL (gun store) near you. We may contact and verify the FFL you select during checkout before we ship your firearm(s). The buyer is encouraged to contact the receiving FFL licensee before purchase.

    PLEASE NOTE: Once the firearm is ready to be picked up at your FFL, Please INSPECT THE FIREARM THOROUGHLY to make sure it is exactly what you ordered and that there are no defects with the firearm. If there are any problems whatsoever, DO NOT ACCEPT THE TRANSFER!! Once you accept the transfer, the gun is considered used and must be returned directly to the manufacturer for warranty repair or replacement

  • Purchasing Ammunition
    You must be 18 or older to purchase rifle or shotgun ammunition and 21 or older to purchase handgun ammunition. All ammunition will be shipped ground with adult signature required. Always make sure to use the correct ammunition for your specific firearms. Check your local laws for any other regulations.
  • General Firearm Sales
    All firearms, magazines, receivers and restricted law enforcement items are sold and shipped in accordance with all existing federal, state and local laws and regulations. Many of the firearms, magazines and parts for sale on this website may be restricted or prohibited in your area. Please check your local and state regulations before ordering.

    All new firearms are shipped in the original manufacturer's box, with magazine(s), accessories and applicable warranty. Firearms requiring warranty work must be returned to the factory within 1 year of purchase for repair. Accessories and special order items not normally sold by our store will not be covered under warranty even if these products are part of an integrated firearms package, unless we have guaranteed the entire package in writing. Please contact the original manufacturer for warranty information on all accessories and special order items.

  • Purchasing Optics & Magazines
    USAGO does not accept returns of Optics and Magazines. All sales of optics and magazines are final. Optics and magazines may be eligible for any applicable manufacturer's warranties. If you need help contacting the manufacturer, please let us know and we'll be happy to assist.
