We accept Cashier’s Checks, Money Orders, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and personal checks. COD orders are not accepted. We deposit checks immediately upon receipt, even if the item is on backorder and it may take months before we make shipment. Credit cards are not charged until just prior to shipment of ordered items. The CMP prefers credit card payment and we can keep your credit card information on file.
Ohio residents add 7% tax. Alabama residents add 4% tax. Anniston residents add 10% tax.
For most items allow 30-45 days from order to delivery. Some model rifles are relatively rare and will take longer. Estimated shipping times for those rifles are listed on the applicable rifle pages. To avoid delays, please ensure that all required documents are provided with order.

In the summer of 2003, the CMP revised the purchase forms and streamlined procedures for repeat customers. If you complete a new Universal Purchaser Certification and Agreement to buy a rifle from the CMP, signed before a Notary Public on or after July 1, 2003, you may for a period of three (3) years thereafter submit an application to purchase additional rifles, parts or ammunition without having the Purchaser Certification and Agreement notarized - provided that the “SHIP TO” address on the order form remains exactly the same.
Although for repeat orders you will not have to have the forms notarized, hard copy liability/order/certification forms – pages 1A,2A,and 3A – must still be completed and sent to the CMP with original (wet) signatures. These orders may not be faxed or emailed.
After three years a new notarized Universal Purchaser Certification and Agreement will be required for any additional rifle purchase. Any change of address on the order form automatically will require a new notarized Universal Purchaser Certification and Agreement.
Please note that this streamlined procedure is available only to customers who have completed a notarized “Universal” Purchaser Certification and Agreement. An application submitted on an earlier form (dated before summer 2003 or not titled “Universal” will still be processed by CMP, but for that transaction only; it will not be accepted for repeat sales.
Proof of citizenship, age, CMP-affiliated club membership and competitive shooting participation, and any copy of any license, permit, or Firearms Owner ID card required by your State or locality submitted with your initial “Universal” application will be kept on file by the CMP. If any item of proof above has expired, you must submit proof of current status with any subsequent application.
