Important Things to Note:


1. I appologize for any inconvience caused by lack of updates to the website. I do the best I can to update this website when the need arises.
2. I have found a new supplier for Hemp Match. It is listed on the regular musketry page.
3. As of this update, the website has been updated to reflect new products and pricing.
4. If you call, please leave a message. I understand that you would like speak to a person when you call. However, am employed outside the home and if you need to speak to me about your order, please call after 7pm EST any evening (757-866-8819). I'm usually home and I will be happy to talk to you. However, please know that quickest way to contact me is through email at and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
5. The phone number listed above is not only the number for the sutlery, but our personal telephone line. We are located in the Eastern Standard Time Zone and would appreciate if you call, to be conscious of the time difference when you are calling.
6. While making orders, I am trying to build up stock again. Please email or call with your inquiries to see what I have in stock. However, as I mentioned above, I'm also outside the home. I do my best to get orders done as quickly as possible.
7. I have a new gunsmith with new, different and better products. There is no plans at the moment to put them on the website given the present back log of orders. Call to see what I may have in stock at the moment that might not be on order.
8. I am not set up to have a retail shop location. This is something that the City will not allow.
9. I am still working to have shopping cart on the website for certain items. Please bear with me.
10. While I am unable to ship slow match out of the US, please note that other musketry supplies can, but it depends on the regulations governing your specific country.
11. As mentioned earlier....The best way to get ahold of me is via email or you can email first and I will give you a time to call when I will definitely be home.


1. Unfortunately, I don't have a shopping cart.

Shipping: All packages will be sent USPS Priority Mail - Delivery Confirmation. If you prefer not to check with me to calculate the charges for you, shipping is 20%, but, the minimum shipping charge will be $7.25. I don't normally ship via Fedex or UPS. Please indicate if you need your package shipped that way for me to calculate shipping.
Returns and exchanges: There will be a 20% restocking charge for anything returned. The only exception being something exchanged for the same item in a different size. If there are signs of disassembly or otherwise worked over to find out how they're made there will not be a refund. The designs are not copyrightable, but I have very lousy feelings for anyone who uses one of my items to copy it, and then doesn't have the courtesy to pay for the original. Also, shipping is non-refundable. If you return an item even for size, please note that you will be charged shipping on the replacement item I send you and you will be credited for returning the original item.
Terms are Cash, Check, MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover or PayPal unless other arrangements have been made at the time of the order. Checks and Money Orders must clear my bank before any order is shipped. For all orders out-of-country, please contact me for shipping amounts and to discuss delivery options.
Large or multi-piece orders - A deposit of half of the total amount will be required at the time of the order.
