How long does it take?

Whenever you check in a firearm too us we will give you an Estimated completion time. Due to the complexity of most of the things we are doing here at Culper we can not give an exact promised date, however we do record an estimated completion date and work tirelessly to meet that deadline.

How can I check the Status of my firearm?

We are looking for a software solution to this, and for the most part many of these software solutions are quite expensive. In an attempt to maintain reasonable pricing for our customers we have not adopted such software. We hope you will understand our thinking here, in a deeply passion rooted attempt to keep our interactions with our customers on a friends and family style relationship we feel we are able to connect and develop a more human relationship.

Not having this software however makes it hard to keep customers updated. We do in fact have an internal system that tracks the exact status of every firearm that is received. This system however does not allow us to share the information externally for any reasonable price point.

If you have a firearm checked in with us the Easiest way to check the status is to shoot us an email to [email protected] Emails are checked every morning daily and we can usually give you and update within 24 hours.
