TERMS OF SALE & GENERAL INFORMATION 

PLACING AN ITEM ON HOLD: Please call us to place an item on hold. You can request a hold be placed via email, but we typically do not hold firearms without a deposit. Asking to place an item on hold through email does not gaurentee it will be put on hold for you. Phone calls are processed before email.

PHONE CALLS: Robert is often gone to gun shows on weekends and often travels on Mondays and Fridays. Your best bet to reach him is to call Tuesday-Thursday during store hours (1:00-6:00) at (309) 342-5800. We do NOT answer the phones on Sunday or Monday.

CORRESPONDENCE: Please try to phone rather than write. I admit to being the world's worst letter writer. If you MUST write, please send asking price, clear photos, and/or an accurate description of the item/items you have for sale or trade.

FIREARM DESCRIPTIONS:  While we try to describe each item completely, they may not be complete enough to finalize your purchase decision. They are intended to give a general overall condition.  Please call for a complete and accurate description of the item. Our salesmen are collectors as well, will treat you with the respect you deserve.

FEDERAL FIREARMS LICENSE (FFL): is required on all shipments of modern guns. We must wait for a copy from your dealer before we can ship to him.  We will also ship C&R eligible firearms to Curio and Relic (C&R) license holders. 
We accept your signed, legible FFL and C&R licenses via fax at 309/ 342-5730 (always on), email at ffl@simpsonltd.com or through the mail at Simpson Ltd; 140 S Seminary St; Galesburg, IL 61401. Pre 1898 firearms and non-firearms items are exempt.

LAYAWAY POLICY: (Changed 13 FEB, 2015) We are willing to put items on layaway for you under the following conditions: The item must be priced at $500 or more with a 20% minimum deposit and must be paid off within 30 days. You may have a maximum of 2 items on layaway at one time. If the balance is not paid off within the 30 day period, all deposits and payments will be forfeited and not returned or applied to another item.
NOTICE: As of January 1, 2017, all new items received for sale on consignment will have a 20% consignment fee. Items received prior to January 1, 2017 will continue to have a 15% fee.

SHIPPING: Please include sufficient shipping and insurance costs. We will ship via UPS, but MUST have your dealer's STREET ADDRESS on an FFL. We try to ship your order within 2 business days after we receive your cashiers check, money order, or credit card authorization and signed FFL copy. Because of recent shipping restrictions placed on us by UPS and FedEx (they have decided to add a $10 surcharge for parcels over 48" long), the price of shipping a pistol or a long gun over 48" long will be a minimum cost of $35.


PAYMENT: Cashiers checks or money orders are preferred, or Visa, Master Card, and American express cards. Be advised that refunds on credit card purchases will be charged a 3% restocking fee. We also accept cash, personal checks (with a 10 day hold time) and wire transfers.
