    Shipping to JES?

    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

    OK......I guess folks have asked this more than a few times. I get it. I just thought some guys on here could impart some experiences on me.

    I took the stock off of my rifle and just mailed the barreled action. USPS insured.

    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 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.

    DITTO with 1Merlin! Also when shipped with the butt stock off the package is smaller, and less likely looking like a firearm screaming, "Steal Me!"
