Shipping & Returns

Remington-Produced Marlin Rifles

Update May 11, 2019. – Although some of the earlier rifles produced by Marlin/Remington had some issues, the current production units are very nice. What does that mean? It means that they function as they are supposed to for the most part. Being relatively inexpensive production rifles, they can still benefit from some attention to detail.

There are still many early “MR” prefix rifles out there to look out for. It’s not that they can’t be fixed, it may just take some additional time & effort.



A 50% deposit (payable by Cashier’s Check, Money Order, personal check, ACH/Bill Pay, or cash) will be required when Grizzly accepts your project. A full refund will be available until work on your project begins, after that the deposit will be non-refundable.

Final payment is due prior to beginning your project. If additional monies are required, or if a refund is due, it will be handled prior to shipping.  Upon completion, your project will ship within 10 days. Effective immediately (July 1, 2019), Projects not paid-in-full within 30 days will incur a $5 per day storage fee. Projects not paid for after 90 days will be sold to recover expenses.

Payment will only be accepted in U.S. dollars. Please review our Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policy.

If you have a hunt scheduled, or a deadline for project completion, please discuss this with me prior to placing your order so that I may determine if it is feasible.

Shipping & Returns


I can ship virtually anywhere in the 50 United States. If you have a firearm and would like me to work on it, you are within your rights to ship it to me directly without utilizing the services of a local FFL (there is the possibility that if you live in one of the more “Liberal” states, that you may need to send & receive through an FFL. Please check your local requirements to be sure. You are responsible for knowing your local laws & regulations!).

If you are purchasing a firearm from me, I will need to ship it to a local FFL of your choosing, who will then transfer it to you. I will need a copy of their FFL emailed to me as early in the process as possible. Please be sure your name is on the FFL copy for reference! If your rifle arrives without a case, I will provide one for the return shipment at a nominal additional cost.

Please pack your long gun securely in a plastic gun case, and then in a box. This will help protect the contents from damage and possibly theft. Insure for full value and ship via either FedEx/UPS Ground service or U.S. Postal Service. Get insurance coverage verification in writing from the carrier and retain for reference. If you don’t think that packages get damaged, lost, or stolen every day, you are kidding yourself. If your rifle arrives without a case, I will provide one for the return shipment at a nominal additional cost.

Prior to shipping any firearm to me I ask that you place a letter of instruction, or copies of correspondence, inside the package with your firearm, and include your shipping address on it as well as ours, in case the label becomes lost or damaged.

Law Enforcement – Please include a signed copy of your NFA Exemption Certificates, if appropriate.

Also, please address the package to Grizzly Custom, not Grizzly Custom Guns. The less the shipping company employees know, the better.

If your shipping company requires proof that we are a licensed FFL, follow this link and insert the following number in the appropriate blanks. 9-81-00958. You may print the information for your shipper if necessary. Shipping will occur as soon after the project is completed as possible, but only after payment is received and (if appropriate) checks have cleared.

If it becomes necessary for you to return a product to me, please contact me to coordinate shipping.

Importing / Exporting


Grizzly Custom Guns, LLC does not import or export directly. If we are building a rifle for you and you live outside the US, we will send the finished product to a dealer that will export it for you.

Delivery Times & Estimates


I work very hard to meet time estimates, especially where a deadline is concerned. Please let me know if you have a class or a hunt scheduled. I will do my best for you. Frankly, sometimes my time estimates suck, and I are completely off base! Please bear with me. I am giving the current project on the bench as much time & attention as it takes to do the job to the best of my ability, just as I will when it is your turn. Thanks in advance for your understanding.



I take pride in each and every job I do, and I am not satisfied until you are. I use the best parts and materials available for a particular job, and within your budget. If you are ever dissatisfied with my work for any reason, please let me know at your earliest convenience. I will work with you to resolve the issue to your satisfaction and mine. No exceptions.

Project Photographs


I have many requests for photographs of customer’s projects, either throughout the process or after it is complete. While I don’t mind doing this, it does take quite a bit of time. To be able to continue to offer this service, it will be necessary to begin charging the shop rate of $75 per hour. Thank you for your understanding.

Change Orders


If you want to make a change to a project that I already have in-house, email me as soon as possible so that I can make the appropriate arrangements. If you want to receive some or all of your old parts back, please let me know, in writing, when you send your gun in. If not, they will not be available after-the-fact. Ultimately, I must have any changes in writing (email) so that they may be documented. If it is not in writing, I will forget.



Ammunition brands and loads used on individual projects will vary depending on what is available at the time. If you have a specific factory load or loads that you will be using, please send me two new boxes (shipped in a separate package! via UPS or FedEx) so that I may include it in the development of your project. Do not send me reloads of any flavor, I absolutely will not shoot your reloads. I also stock Garrett ammunition for sighting-in and function testing. Let me know if you would like to go that route. I DO NOT SELL ANY AMMUNITION OUTRIGHT.

Please include your phone number in your emails to me. Quite often I get emails bounced back to me when responding to you due to the settings on your SPAM filters or your IP settings. I then have no choice but to hope that you contact me again.

Thank you,
Lew Bonitz
