Call them and ask.
I'm getting close to enough money to ship my 336 off to JES for a makeover. What do you send him, a whole gun, nothing but the action and barrel W/O wood, or the gun broken down as much as possible? Which service is best, USPS, Fed EX, UPS, or something else? Thanks, Tom
Call them and ask.
I took the stock off of my rifle and just mailed the barreled action. USPS insured.
Old men with Garands do not panic.
I took the scope off of my rifle and handed him the rest, no mailing necessary.

I sent the whole gun without the scope, but many have removed the wood. I use UPS for shipping guns or ammo. However you send it, package it like you expect the carrier to try to destroy it. Many buy a cheap plastic(Plano, etc.) case and put that in cardboard box. JES shipped mine back USPS.

I take off the buttstock prior to shipping a long gun. Seems the guns are damaged a lot more when shipped with the entire gun in one piece. Use UPS, be sure to include your $$ and instructions with your return address. Pad and wrap the gun well. IF asked. Machine parts in the box.
Do it however you want - this is what I do.
I like it. I love it. Can't get enough of it.

I sent my whole gun in through the US postal service. I had talked with Jesse on the phone previously to discuss the rifle and what I wanted done. But, I also put a note in with it to reiterate the work to be done on it. I also put a check in there. Then sent it off and waited. You will need to sign for it when it comes back. I just waited for the note on the door and went and picked it up at the Post Office.
