Glock Stippling & Glock Custom Work by Tidewater Virginia Gunsmith D.R. Middlebrooks...

BE ADVISED: I NO LONGER WORK ON GLOCKS THAT HAVE BEEN MODIFIED BY OTHERS. The reason why is I end up getting credit for the WHOLE gun and ALL the SUB-PAR additional work done by others that does not meet my high standards. 

TURN AROUND TIME* for Glock work is currently 4-8 weeks depending on how much work you need done and the backlog I have at the time your gun arrives.

*PLEASE NOTE: In order to keep my turn around time manageble, I DO NOT answer phone calls, but I will return them. Leave a message or better yet send me an email (which is the best way to communicate with me). Click this link to email me: info@TacticalShooting.com

Polymer guns are slippery when wet (like with sweat, rain or blood on the grip) and can squirt right out of your hand if someone grabs your gun. But the STIP-TEX helps you maintain control of your weapon during a disarm attempt. Hi-WRAP coverage (COURSE texture) is shown below...

SHIPPING YOUR HANDGUN... 

Handguns can be legally shipped to a Federal Firearms License (FFL) Gun Dealer via UPS or FedEx or USPS (yes, the POST OFFICE). Be sure to follow UPS and FedEx guidelines.

ALL HANDGUNS WILL BE RETURNED FED-EX OVERNIGHT AIR, insured for the replacement value with adult signature required. The ONLY other way I will return ship handguns is through the POST OFFICE to your local FFL Dealer (See info on that below).

U.S POST OFFICE: THE BEST WAY TO SHIP HANDGUNS is to go "Dealer to Dealer" via U.S.P.S. (United States Postal Service) Priority Mail which is flat rate (that means they don't care about the size or weight). The post office will even provide FREE Priority Mail Shipping Boxes and offer FREE PICK UP from your FFL (Federal Firearms Licensed) Dealer. This is really the most cost effective way to LEGALLY ship your handgun while being in full compliance with U.S.P.S. RULES.*

TO SHIP USPS JUST FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE STEPS:

Step 1. Go to the post office yourself and pick up some FREE Priority Mail shipping boxes (Small, Medium & Large). This will save your FFL Dealer time (and you money). Take the boxes home and figure out which one best fits for your gun box. Fill out and SIGN the Custom Work Order Form (I will email  it to you) and then put it inside the box with your gun.

Step 2. Simply take the package (unsealed) to the FFL Dealer and have them ship it to us via USPS. Be sure to tell them THIS IS NOT A GUN TRANSFER as you are simply sending it to me for "repairs or alterations". A 4473 Form is NOT REQUIRED as you already own the gun.

Step 2A: Be sure to include a copy of Postal Service form 1508 (I will email YOU a copy so you can print it out for your local FFL Dealer). This form simply states the gun is being sent "Dealer to Dealer".

Step 2B: Tell him (your FFL Dealer) I will email a copy of my signed FFL when I get his email address.

Step 2C: Give him my contact info (I will email YOU that too).

Step 3. All your FFL Dealer will have to do is go online (www.usps.com) and click on "Schedule a Pickup" from the menu bar across the top. Then just follow the easy to use directions from there. and set a date for FREE Pickup (they will pick up when they deliver his mail. They will also pick up any other packages he may have). The FFL Dealer can then print out a USPS shipping label.

Step 3A: Tell your FFL Dealer they will need to sign the PS Form 1508 (which you gave him) and he will then give it to the mail carrier along with the package. Be sure they insure the package for replacement value of the gun and have ADULT SIGNATURE REQUIRED for delivery. Then send me the tracking number so I can watch for it (otherwise, if it gets lost I won't know anything about it).

NOTE: I return the gun to him the same way. I will insure the gun for replacement value and require an Adult Signature. It will be returned back to the FFL Dealer (who should call you when the package arrives back at his gun shop).

*Here are the U.S.P.S. RULES FOR SHIPPING HANDGUNS:  

The EXCERPT SHOWN BELOW WAS TAKEN DIRECTLY FROM the  U.S.P.S. (United States Postal Service) website found here:  http://pe.usps.com/text/pub52/pub52c4_009.htm#ep350890

432.23 Manufacturers, Dealers, and Importers

Handguns may also be mailed between licensed manufacturers of firearms, licensed dealers of firearms, and licensed importers of firearms in customary trade shipments, or for repairing or replacing parts.

432.24 Certificate of Manufacturers, Dealers, and Importers

A federal firearms licensee manufacturer, dealer, or importer need not file the affidavit under 432.22, but must file with the Postmaster a statement on PS Form 1508*, Statement by Shipper of Firearms, signed by the mailer that he or she is a licensed manufacturer, dealer, or importer of firearms. The mailer must also state that the parcels containing handguns, or parts and components of handguns under 432.2d, are being mailed in customary trade shipments or contain such articles for repairing or replacing parts, and that to the best of their knowledge the addressees are licensed manufacturers, dealers, or importers of firearms. Registered Mail service is recommended.
