Firearm Returns – Once a new firearm is transferred to you it is considered used, even if it is unfired. TRANSFERRED FIREARMS CANNOT BE RETURNED. Mad Dog cannot provide a full refund for new firearms once they have been transferred into your possession. Also, we do not reimburse FFL transfer fees on returned items. We do understand that some manufacturer defects may not be identifiable upon initial inspection. However, upon discovering a defect after the transfer, it is best to return the firearm directly to the manufacturer for replacement or repair (in accordance with manufacturer’s warranty policy). By sending a defective firearm directly to the manufacturer, you can avoid the unnecessary transfer fees of returning the firearm to us through your local FFL dealer. We are more than happy to assist you through this process. Mad Dog will accept returns on firearms that have not been transferred, but a 25% restocking fee plus return shipping will apply. In some cases a gift card/store credit will be issued for the refund. Refunds or store credits are not issued on item(s) until they are returned and inspected.
Please note that Mad Dog will not permit the return of the following products:
1. Special orders and products that are custom configured to your specifications.
2. Products sold "as is" or "used" or that have been installed or used after receipt.
3. NFA items that require ATF Transfer after the start of paperwork.
4. Ammunition, Illumination devices, electronic sights, optics and night vision equipment.
Returns are only accepted for merchandise found defective immediately upon receipt and returned within ten calendar days of receipt. Accessory items that have been opened from the manufacturer packaging cannot be returned. Mad Dog will not accept returns on items that have been installed or mounted. Most accessory items have a manufacturer warranty. Please contact the manufacturer if there are any issues after installation. Original shipping charges are NOT refunded if the item is NOT found to be defective. Customers are responsible for return shipping. Returned orders may also be subject to a 10% restocking fee if unopened and 25% restocking fee if opened. In some cases a gift card/store credit will be issued for refund. Refunds or store credits are not issued on item(s) until they are returned and inspected.
All Ammunition Sales / Ammo Components are Final and Non-Returnable. Returns cannot be accepted.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO RETURN PACKAGES TO THE ADDRESS ON THE BOX. WITHOUT A Return Mailing Address WE WILL BE UNABLE TO VERIFY YOUR RETURN AND ISSUE A REPLACEMENT OR REFUND.
NOTE: We recommend that you use a carrier that offers shipment tracking for all returns, and either insure your package for safe return or declare the full value of the shipment so that you are protected if the shipment is lost or damaged in transit. If you choose not to use a carrier that offers tracking and insure or declare the full value of the product, you will be responsible for any loss or damage to the product during shipping. The customer is responsible for shipping charges both ways on returns, as well as for shipping charges on shipments that are refused.
CANCELLATION OF ORDERS
We invest money and time to prepare every order that is placed on our website, even before the order ships. After you have placed your order online or over the phone, you will be charged a 10% Cancellation fee on the order total if you decide to cancel it. If an order has already been packaged and prepared for shipment or has shipped then you will be charged a 25% Cancellation fee on the order total if you decide to cancel it. By placing an order online or over the phone, you agree to pay this 10% or 25% cancellation fee plus forfeit any shipping and handling charges if you choose to cancel your existing processed order. If you choose to cancel an item or order that includes a product that you backordered you also agree to pay the 10% or 25% cancellation fee. We apologize for these cancellation terms, but the firearms industry works differently than general merchandise.
ONLINE PRICE / DESCRIPTION ERRORS / AVAILABILITY
Occasionally we have only one item in stock and more than one person orders it. When this happens we honor the first funded order. If we run out of stock we will cancel your order and fully refund your money with no fees to you. If an order contains more than one item and an item is out of stock, Mad Dog will still fill the order and issue a refund for any of the items that are out of stock. Our online inventory changes every day. Occasionally an item may appear on the site by mistake or the item's description may contain a typographical error. We do not guarantee that titles, descriptions, pictures or prices on our site are complete, error-free, reliable, or current. Mad Dog streams live prices from several different distributors. Due to availably and price changes between these different distributors all sale prices are final. Price adjustments are not eligible on any order that has been placed and we cannot issue a raincheck for sale priced items. We reserve the right to refuse any order including but not limited to orders for items with errors in the description or price. We also reserve the right to refuse any order where a nonvalid coupon code is used. In the event that we cancel an order we will refund your money or issue a gift card. If the order is mistakenly shipped, we may advise the customer to return the item in an unopened condition and we will refund the customer. By placing an order, the customer agrees that the seller will be the final arbiter of any discrepancies.

FIREARM SHIPPING – FFL TRANSFERS
Mad Dog will only ship firearms to individuals or agencies with a valid FFL (Federal Firearms License). In some cases Mad Dog may choose not to ship firearms to certain dealers. Though these dealers may appear on a list these dealers could be flagged and may not be used for transfers. The list on maddog.com is there to provide you with a convenient way to see what local FFL dealers are in your area. Customers may use local dealers that are not on the list by contacting us through the Help Desk or emailing us at email@example.com. Mad Dog has no affiliation with any FFL’s on the list. Be aware that it is customary for your local dealer to charge a transfer fee at the time you pick up your purchase. These transfer fees can vary by region and dealer. Transfer fees are strictly between you and your local dealer. Certain dealers also apply sales tax. Please check with your local dealer concerning their policies. The actual transfer of the firearm, transfer fees and sale tax will be between you and your FFL dealer. Mad Dog does not guarantee information provided by any other FFL dealers or their websites. Mad Dog only collects sales tax if you reside in the state of Florida. Customers are responsible for contacting the transferring FFL to get approval for the transfer prior to placing an order with Mad Dog. It is also the customers responsibility to contact the FFL and have them send a copy of their FFL to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is the customers responsibility to ensure that a firearm you are transferring is legal to own in your state. Additional shipping cost can apply to orders that experience shipping issues with the FFL Dealer you choose.
GENERAL FIREARM SALES

It is your responsibility to ensure that a firearm is legal to own in your state. 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.
