When sending your weapon you MUST include a legible color copy of your Driverís License or other State approved ID along with the Work Order we will send you from above. The Work Order Number must be clearly and in Large Letters be written on the outside of the box as well as the return name and address as listed on the supplied identification or IT WILL BE REFUSED FROM THE CARRIER AND RETURNED.

 We will ONLY return ship the finished product to the address on the ID or a Licensed FFL of your choice. NO EXCEPTIONS. If we do not receive a legible copy of your ID with the package we will ONLY ship your item back to a Licensed FFL of your choosing for final disposition to you. We do not accept any work from outside of the Continental U.S. and we will only ship to the same.


We STRONGLY SUGGEST that the weapon be put into a plastic hard case prior to being boxed up in a durable cardboard box all of which has sufficient padding to avoid damage in transit. INSURE the package for the FULL REPLACEMENT value of all goods.  When we return the product we will re-use the same packaging. OCRS will ONLY charge the true cost of shipping the item back unless we have to provide a plastic case or your outer box is destroyed on the inbound run and we have to re-box and or provide more packaging materials.

 Upon Receipt Of Your Package:

 We will inspect the item / package for initial freight damage. If any is found we will notify you immediately so you can initiate an insurance claim.

The weapon will then be inspected for the services requested. We will e-mail, or fax you a detailed, written final quote within two business days once we have examined the firearm based on the actual condition of the item being serviced. You have 5 calendar days to reply to our quote and to send the necessary deposit for the requested services as listed below. We will accept CC/DB Cards via phone and/or Money Orders ONLY. Please DO NOT send us any written Credit Card Information via email or in the packaging.

 We reserve the right NOT to provide service to any weapon at our sole discretion. Please see Service Exceptions: below. If we decide not to provide service, OCRS will ship the weapon back AS-IS at your cost. If we receive ANY weapon that is blatantly Illegal we will immediately turn it over to our local Sheriffís Department or ATF Office and they will handle the disposition of the Illegal Weapon. 

Jobs with a total of less than $500.00, and no more than $999.00, will require 25% of the quoted price, with the remainder paid upon completion + Return Shipping. Jobs with a total of $1,000.00 or more require a deposit of 35% of the quoted price, with the remainder paid upon completion + Return Shipping. There are no exceptions.

 Working On Your Item:

OCRS will make every attempt to include the cost of all the necessary work / repairs in the initial quote. However, if any unforeseen / additional repairs are necessary, OCRS will notify the customer with the additional work and cost before finishing the project, and, will only proceed after receiving written authorization from the customer. This happen primarily when a restoration is started and unforeseen damage, rust or other factors arise during the course of operation.

 When the Work is Finished:

OCRS will notify the customer via phone or e-mail when their service project is complete. Payment is due within 5 calendar days of this notice. If payment is not received in full after the 5 calendar days, OCRS will notify the customer by certified mail (USPS) that the balance is still outstanding. Failure to pay the invoice in full within 15 business days of receipt of the USPS-certified letter will result in the abandonment of the firearm. Abandoned firearms will become the property of OCRS at which point the firearm will be sold through an FFL of Orange County Restoration Serviceís choosing, for market value price (as determined by Orange County Restoration Service) to cover the costs of services. When your item is shipped back to you will be advised of a Carrier and Tracking Number. All shipments will be shipped and packaged as mentioned above with insurance.

 When You Receive Your Finished Project:

Inspect your package Immediately for Freight Damage. Notify OCRS immediately so we can start an insurance claim with the carrier.

 The customer will have 5 business days from the delivery confirmation date to contact Orange County Restoration Service regarding dissatisfaction or concerns about quality of work.

 If the reason for the return is a result of work done by Orange County Restoration Service, then we will cover all shipping & handling costs from the customer, plus the shipping & handling costs back to the customer. Customer satisfaction is our top priority. We guarantee the quality of the workmanship of the services we provide.

 If the reason for the return is the result of damage or additional modifications done by the customer, then the customer will pay the shipping & handling to and from Orange County Restoration Service. We only guarantee our work. We do NOT warranty other manufacturerís products. If the problem is with the part OCRS must get paid for replacing or fitting the bad part. Shipping will be at the customerís expense.

 Even though we test fire final products prior to shipment, if a feeding problem arises (especially with 1911ís and 22 pistols), then please contact your OCRS service representative. We have found a wide variance in both 45ACP and 22LR ammunition, and many products out there are substandard in their loadings; especially bulk-pack ammo.

 Before contacting us try a couple of different types of FACTORY full power rounds first. Then, if your weapon functions, but you still want to shoot substandard ammo, please contact OCRS so we can devise a method that will work for you.

  Service Exceptions:

We will not accept ANY un-serialized 80% lower either in rifle or pistol form. NO EXCEPTIONS.

We have taken this stance to keep the DOJ off of us. We do however have a local Class 7 manufacturer of weapons nearby that we can refer you to for getting service on this type of weapon. Our gunsmith does the work at their facility which includes Cerakoting.

Orange County Restoration Service is NOT a "California Assault Weapons Dealer" and cannot accept any weapon that does not meet CA DOJ approval from CA residents as it is illegal for us to return them to you.

Prior to shipping OCRS your weapon, make sure it is LEGAL for you to own in your state in the configuration it leaves our shop. OCRS abides by every State and Federal firearms law. We work closely with CA DOJ, BATFE, or our local law enforcement contacts to stay informed of all relevant firearms laws. But, we are not a law firm. Orange County Restoration Service CANNOT offer any legal advice pertaining to firearms, or answer any other firearms-related inquiries. However, we can refer you to our CA DOJ, BATFE, or local law enforcement contacts upon request. The bottom line is: if you canít get the firearm from your local dealer in its final configuration, we cannot do the augmentation/customization, and we WILL send it back to you at YOUR expense.

We will not convert Black Powder Pistols to center fire ammunition by fitting cylinders.

We will not work on ANY weapon we think is dangerous and unserviceable by our sole discretion.
