Shipping Policy

Items marked as In Stock, ships within 2-3 business days. Items marked as Available, Ships Quickly, often comes directly from one of our vendors and ships within 3-5 business days from placing your order. Items marked as Ships in 7-10 business days may require addition time for FFL license processing. Choosing an expedited shipping method will not reduce the lead time required for processing, only the method used when shipping. 

We do our best when choosing the best carrier for shipping your products. Please note some products cannot ship via certain carriers or methods due to legalities and restrictions. For Example USPS cannot ship Ammunition and UPS can only ship Ammo ground to the contiguous 48 states.  

A shipping confirmation email with tracking information is sent within 24 hours of your order leaving the warehouse.

Some items we ship require an adult signature 18+ or 21+ depending on the item or state being shipped to. If an item requires an adult signature we will include the information in the shipping confirmation email.

Some items are hazardous and require additional packaging requirements. These items will be identified during the shopping process.

Oversized / Overweight Items

Oversized and overweight items often carry additional charges from the shipping carriers. Examples of these items are ammunition, firearm, rifle and ammunition cases and bags. Typically, these items will be identified during the shopping process. Some of these items may only incur additional charges if large quantities are purchased or expedited (non-ground) shipping is selected. If an order is identified as incurring additional costs to ship, a customer service representative will contact you with the updated costs before shipping to confirm the new total.

Damaged Goods

If an item arrives visibly damaged, please contact Modern Tactical Customer Service immediately. Claims are handled through the shipping carrier, but Modern Tactical will assist customers with these claims to the best of our ability.

Return Policy

With the exception of Firearms and Ammunition, you can return any new, unused and unaltered item within 30 days of delivery of your item. We will issue a full refund of the merchandise to your original payment method. Our orders ship from multiple warehouses around the country, please do not send your items back to the return address on the label as that is not the fastest way to process a return. Please view our Return Process to start your return with issuing an RMA number.

Refund Policy

Returned products must be in new, unused condition and include the original box and/or packaging with all tags included.
Once your return is received and inspected by Modern Tactical (usually within 24 hours of receipt), your refund will be processed and a credit will be applied to your credit card. Please note that depending on your credit card company, it may take an additional 2-10 business days after your credit is applied for it to be posted to your account.
You are responsible for all shipping costs associated with getting your order back to our warehouse.
See below for instructions on where/how to get your return order back to us. Unless noted during the return process, new items should not be shipped back to the manufacturer; all returns need an RMA (Return Merchandise Authorization) number and will need to be returned to Modern Tactical.

Return Shipping Options

You have the option of using the carrier of your choice to return your order to us. We recommend shipping with a method which includes tracking and insurance for your return shipment. Please note certain carriers have different policies for what can be shipped and how such as Hazmat items. Please contact them if you are unsure. Modern Tactical will not take responsibility if shipped incorrectly.
All shipments must be made prepaid; packages shipped COD will be rejected.
Any Refused, Undelivered, or Abandoned package will be subject to a $10 Service Fee.

Used or Damaged Merchandise

Any merchandise which has been used cannot be returned. 
Any merchandise or parts which shows signs of use is in a condition other than it was received cannot be returned.

Firearms Return Policy

Due to manufacturer restrictions, firearms cannot be returned directly to Modern Tactical. If purchased within 30 days or purchased with a Modern Tactical Lifetime Warranty, and there are any defects to your firearm, we will work with the manufacturer to help process your exchange. Please note, you will need an FFL Dealer to send or receive your firearm.

Ammunition Return Policy

For safety concerns, we are unable to receive ammunition returned from individuals.

Open Box 

We occasionally sell certain products in an open box condition that we use for product photography or videos. These items are new products and never used. They will be marked when purchasing and can be returned. Items for which the packaging has been destroyed are not returnable.


Each manufacturer has its own warranty policy. Modern Tactical will assist customers with their warranty; however Modern Tactical does not provide any direct warranty on items other than Firearms.

Order Cancellation / Modifications

We do our best to turn around orders extremely quickly.
Orders can be modified or cancelled only while their status is labeled "New." Once an order has a status of "Processing or At Warehouse " it cannot be cancelled or modified, as the order has been processed by our warehouse and is in the queue to be shipped out.

Special Orders / Volume Orders

Special orders, customized items or bulk purchases are not eligible for a return unless agreed in writing by Modern Tactical, at it's sole discretion and may incur penalties for a refund unless there was an error on our end.

Warranty Returns

Most manufacturers offer an additional warranty period which covers against merchandise defects. To determine warranty requirements for a specific item, please contact the manufacturer or contact us for assistance.
Please note warranty processing may take 4-8 weeks and will be subject to the individual manufacturer's policies and discretion. Manufacturer warranties do not cover defects determined to be caused by normal wear or due to customer negligence.

Damaged Goods

Please let us know ASAP if any goods arrive damaged. Please keep all original shipping containers and take pictures if possible. Damaged goods claims are handled through the shipping carrier (UPS, FedEx, USPS). We will assist our customers in these claims. We only ask that customers be patient as sometimes this process can take longer than any of us would like!

Returns Process

Please contact one of our Customer Service Representatives and we will happy start the return process with you. Please have your original order information available. If the item being returned is eligible we will issue an RMA # which must be marked clearly on the external box of the package. Items returned without an RMA # will be rejected. You have 30 days from when the RMA is issued to return your merchandise. Please do not tape anything to the original product packaging! We need to get all products (and their packaging!) back in new condition. Place all merchandise in a shipping box; you may use the original shipping container. However, please DO NOT use the manufacturer's product box as the shipping container. It will arrive damaged and the package will be rejected by our returns department.

Please retain your return tracking information. Modern Tactical Online is not responsible for packages lost during return shipment. You will receive a confirmation email from Modern Tactical when your return is processed which will include the full details of refund credited.
