Defarb Request Instructions

Let us defarb your reproduction firearms! Here's how:

Step 1: Give us a Call/Send us an Email
-We ask that all customers who are interested in defarb contact us first. That way, you can explain to our gunsmith exactly what it is you want done and discuss pricing options and turn around time.
Step 2: Fill out our Defarb Request Form
This simple little form insures that we have all the information necessary to complete your defarb in a timely fashion. It also allows us to easily see which defarb options you'd like. Simply print it out, fill it out, and drop it in the box with your gun. You can find a printable copy of it here: Defarb Request Form
Step 3: Box it Up and Send it to Us!
Carefully package your gun and send it off to us. We recommend shipping through UPS as UPS stores are usually conveniently located and they offer shipping boxes long enough to accommodate a full length musket. Because we only deal with antique and black powder guns, there are no federal regulations on shipping them through the mail or through a postal carrier-just send it just like you would any other parcel. You may also ship via USPS, but we recommend avoiding FEDEX as their delivery service in our area can be unreliable. Please take any accessories off the gun (slings, nipple protectors, etc.) they are difficult to keep track off and often have small parts and pieces that can get lost. Ship all guns to: 

Lodgewood MFG
PO Box 611
Whitewater WI 53190
(U.S. Mail)
Lodgewood MFG
131 Center St
Whitewater WI 53190
(UPS, FedEx)

Step 4: Payment
Turn around time for a defarb is about 12 weeks from the day your weapon arrives at our shop. Although the actual work takes only a few days, our gunsmith must work on the guns in the order he receives them. When the work is completely we will contact you via a telephone with a final total. You can pay over the phone with a credit card number or send us a check or money order. We will box your gun back up and send it to you as soon as we receive payment.
