    Going to need to be shipping my M1 Garand out to a gunsmith to get a rebuild on it.

    Who is the best carrier to deal with when shipping firearms?

    I've never had to shipped a firearm before :o

    DHL might be better, but I have heard/experienced equally shitty results with all carriers

    I've always received better service from them when compared to UPS and FEDEX.

    gotta keep it on the DL at the post office though, they freak out if they know you are shipping a rifle.

    FedEX. I shipped a rifle back to the comp, they shipped it back to me no problem.

    PS,on the description, put down, "machined parts" or something like that. Dont want people knowing it's a firearm and jacking it.
