Rainier Arms Shipping information, restrictions, and policies (Revised July 21, 2022)
Rainier Arms usually ships via USPS or FedEx. A shipping provider is selected based on the size, contents and value of the product being shipped at Rainier Arms discretion. If a specific carrier is preferred, please give us a call during business hours from Monday – Friday 9am – 6pm CST and we will attempt to accommodate your request. Additional shipping charges may apply.
Expedited shipping options are available on the shipping information page during check out. Orders with expedited shipping placed by 2pm (Monday – Friday) Central Standard time will be shipped the same business day (ie M-F). (Does not apply to orders with Firearms, Gunsmithing work, or drop-shipped items)
If you did not receive an email with tracking confirmation and would like to know where your order is at you can use our Track My Order system to locate and track your shipment. If you would like us to re-send you your tracking information, please email us at [email protected] or call us at 253-218-2999 Ext. 4 with your order number and we can make sure you receive that information. Tracking information with carriers occasionally will not update very quickly, but if you have received an email with tracking, your package is on its way.
Rainier Arms ships to all 50 states and US territories. Products prohibited by CFR 49 from shipping on aircraft (such as ammunition) will only be shipped to the contiguous 48 states at this time.
While Rainier Arms strives to stay current on laws affecting the items we sell, it is ultimately the responsibility of the customer to ensure that they know what laws and regulations affect them and the products they are ordering. Below are some of the current restrictions we are aware of, though this should not be treated as a comprehensive or complete list.
At this time, we cannot ship Ammunition to Alaska, Hawaii, or any overseas territory due to CFR 49. Additionally, we cannot ship ammunition to PO Boxes. All ammunition is shipped via FedEx Ground, so ensure you are using an address that they can deliver to. Ammunition that is returned due to an un-deliverable address may incur additional fees to re-ship at Rainier Arm’s sole discretion.
California and New York residents ordering ammunition must have it shipped to a licensed firearms dealer or ammunition vendor. Please let us know in the delivery notes the dealer you would like to use for this purpose. Alternately you can email that information to us at [email protected] referencing your order number.
Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, and New Jersey require ammunition purchasers to have a permit to own/purchase/carry a firearm. Please upload the required documentation with your ID during checkout, or email it to us referencing your order number [email protected]

While we do ship internationally, we do not accept international orders through our website. Please visit https://www.rainierarms.com/international/ to find a dealer we work with in your country who can handle your order, or email [email protected].
If you believe that your order has been lost or stolen based on the tracking information, or your package arrives damaged, please notify us at [email protected] immediately. The longer you take to notify us of an issue, the less that we will be able to do to assist you.
If the package has arrived damage, please take pictures of the damage to the box and any damaged products. Additionally, please inventory your shipment to see if anything is missing due to the damage.
Please note that carriers sometimes will not update tracking information consistently while a package is in transit. Seeing no updates to the tracking information for a few days is unfortunately normal and should not be viewed as an indicator that the package has been lost.
