1 Store Info
1.1 What shipping services do you use?
Our preferred shipment methods are USPS Priority Mail and UPS Ground or 2-Day Air. Handguns ship via USPS Priority Mail or UPS 2-Day Air. Long guns are usually shipped UPS ground. Our policy is to send lower receivers and FCU's a priority service. For larger orders with multiple items, we will usually opt for UPS Ground.
1.2 What is your returns policy for purchases?
Firearm purchases that are not completed for any reason, e.g. declined background check, are subject to a 15% restocking fee. Background check fees are non-refundable.
Returns: All firearms sales are final. Notify us within 2 business days of items received damaged or defective, and return within 5 business days with receipt for a full refund. Returns for reasons other than defect or damage must occur within 10 business days and be accompanied by a receipt. Such items must be in unused and in re-sellable condition and are subject to a 15% restocking fee.
1.3 Do you have hunting rifles and shotguns?
Our physical store is relatively small space, so we consider ourselves a specialty gun shop that focuses on tactical firearms (specifically the AR Platform), long-range precision shooting, and handguns for concealed carry, personal defense and competition.
For the hunters out there, we are always willing to special order items if they are available to us. Ask us!
1.4 What brands do you carry?
We are official dealers of Aero Precision, Ballistic Advantage, VG6 Precision, Hogue, Falkor Defense and Tyrant Designs, and we buy direct from them. We are approved stocking dealers for Glock and Colt.
We carry a lot of other firearms and products from other manufacturers. Please see our Brands page for a complete list. We carry more brands in store than we do online.
1.5 Do you sell ammo?
Yes, we usually have the most popular modern handgun, rifle and shotgun calibers on hand, but only at our Pewaukee location in store. We do not sell ammo online.
1.6 Can you special order something for me?
We promise to try. Given the status of the supply chain in this industry right now, there are many items simply unavailable to us. We can't promise to be able to acquire specific items, but we are always willing to look for you. If it's available to us, we are happy to order it for you. We work with some of the biggest and best distributors in the country.
If you're not in a huge hurry, most of our suppliers will notify us when specific items become available. If not now, there's always the possibility it could be next week or next month. We will always call prior to ordering on your behalf, especially if it's been a while since you made your request.
We are official dealers of and buy direct from Aero Precision, Ballistic Advantage, VG6 Precision, Tyrant Designs, Alien Gear, Ammo Inc, Hogue and others. Please ask, especially if the item you seek is one of those brands.
If we are able to find it through one of our main suppliers, items usually arrive in 7-10 days. We require payment in full in advance.
1.7 Do you buy guns or do trade-ins?
We do not buy guns outright, but we will occasionally do trade-ins, at our discretion. At this time, we are only interested in gently used, newer model carry pistols that are in like new, excellent or very good condition with original cases, magazines, etc. For the most part, we deal in factory new firearms and custom builds by Wraith Precision. All firearms listed on this website are new, unless otherwise noted, or if they appear in the PREOWNED category.
1.8 Do you have used guns?
We have a VERY limited selection of used firearms that we have acquired. Please see the Guns>PREOWNED category to see what we have available. We do not deal at all in antique or curio firearms.

2 Background Checks
2.1 How are background checks done in Wisconsin?
Background checks for long guns (rifles, shotguns, lower receivers) are done through NICS (FBI). Background checks for handguns (pistols, revolvers, ar/ak pistols, fire control units) are done through the state of WI.
If you purchase more than one long gun at the same time, the background check is done through NICS. If you purchase a long gun and a handgun at the same time, the background check will be done through the state.
Different states have different procedures, so if you do not live in Wisconsin, this may not apply. Please check on your state laws before purchasing any firearm online. See also Gun Purchasing Process - In Store
2.2 What do you need to pass a background check?
In general, to pass the check you must:
- Provide your address, place of birth, height, weight, sex, birth date, ethnicity, and race
- Verify you are:
- The actual buyer of the firearm
- A citizen of the United States
- Verify you are NOT:
- Under indictment for a felony or any crime for which the judge can imprison you for more than a year
- A convicted felon
- A fugitive from justice
- An unlawful drug user
- Mentally defective
- A recipient of a dishonorable discharge from the Military
- The subject of a domestic restraining order
- A convicted domestic abuser
- An illegal alien
Please see Purchasing Guns Online for more information
2.3 How long does the background check take?
It is variable. Sometimes it's 5 minutes, sometimes 5 days. Most of the people that come into our shop receive a response the same day or next day. For handguns, the state of Wisconsin MUST reply within 5 business days one way or the other. There is no mandatory waiting period in Wisconsin.
2.4 What happens if my background check is declined?
Firearm purchases that are not completed due to a declined background check are subject to a 15% restocking fee on the cost of the firearm. Background check fees are non-refundable. You will not be able to take possession of the firearm, but will be provided with information on how to appeal the decision. Please see Gun Purchasing Process - In Store for an overview of the gun purchasing process.
Note: this applies to firearm purchases from the inventory of Wraith Precision in-store. For transfers, please see the policy of the seller.
2.5 Is there a mandatory waiting period in Wisconsin?
No, there is no longer a mandatory waiting period for purchasing guns in Wisconsin.
3.1 What is the transfer process?
Please see the following pages:
3.2 Will you give me your FFL number or a copy of your license?
No, sorry. We prefer to handle this internally, and dealer-to-dealer. If you are doing a transfer and the seller requires a copy of our FFL, please have them contact us at [email protected] to request it directly.
4.1 Do you work on older model, antique or curio firearms?
Generally speaking, yes, we do, particularly if it's something simple like a cleaning. We are able to get replacement parts for *some* older model firearms, but not all.
The best thing to do with older firearms than need more than a cleaning is to bring them in. The gunsmith should be able to tell you fairly quickly whether he can help you or not.
4.2 What services do you provide?
Please see our Gunsmithing page for a list of services we provide. If your situation involves something not included on the list, please give us a call or email Dave at [email protected] and we'll let you know if we can provide service or not.
4.3 Can you give me an estimate on the service I'd like done?
For straightforward services such as cleaning, installing sights, scope mounting, upgrading specific parts, we are usually able to provide a price or price range in advance.
For more complicated issues such as diagnosing malfunctions, we will need to take a look at it before providing a quote.
4.4 Can you build me a custom AR?
Indeed we can - it's our specialty!
We generally have manufacturing parts on hand to build AR15, AR10 and AR9 in a variety of popular chamberings. Typically we have stock to build AR15s in 5.56, 223 Wylde, 6.5 Grendel, and 300 AAC, AR10s in .308 or 6.5 Creedmoor and AR Pistols in 9mm. Other chamberings are available, but barrels and BCG's will likely need to be ordered for the build.
4.5 What brands of components do you use in your custom builds?
We use Aero Precision upper and lower receivers and Ballistic Advantage barrels by default. The rest of the parts used are dependent on your preference and budget. We carry a range of components from basic mil-spec to high end from which to choose.
4.6 Can you mill out a slide on a pistol for a red dot?
Yes, this is something we do. Generally, you will need to know what kind of optic/red dot you'll be putting on the pistol prior to milling.
4.7 Do you do cerakote or laser engraving?
We do not do cerakote or offer laser engraving at this time, though we may in the future.
4.8 Do you offer classes or training on gunsmithing topics ?
We are space-challenged for offering classes, however if you are doing a build and need help, Dave, the gunsmith, is often willing to work with people one-on-one after hours, his schedule permitting. Please contact Dave directly to see when he might be able to meet with you at [email protected]
5.1 As a dealer, how do I request your FFL for a transfer or shipment?
Email Heidi at [email protected] or call us at 262-696-4204 to request a copy.
Note: We do NOT give our FFL to customers or non-FFL businesses.
5.2 Do you deal with NFA items?
We do not currently deal with NFA items such as suppressors or short-barreled long guns. We cannot accept transfers of such items at the present time.
