Terms and Conditions of Clark’s Antiques

Please read the following Terms and Conditions. Feel free to contact us to hold an item you wish to purchase or if you are looking for specific items not on our website or any other questions you might have at We can also be reached by phone (541) 389-9302.

The items we offer for sale are pre 1899 and are sold as antiques. Occasionally an item acquired as “extras” in a collection purchase may be newer and considered modern. In these cases, they may require shipment to a FFL or Curio & Relics license holder depending on the laws in your state. You must be 21 years of age to purchase from our website. All items we offer are sold with no guaranties, warranties, or liabilities of actual usage. Any firearms to be used for shooting should be inspected by a qualified gunsmith. We will do our best to give a full and honest evaluation of the item with appropriate photos–we want you to have no surprises when you receive them.

We are collectors ourselves and treat all our clients as fellow enthusiasts. We will make every effort to honestly evaluate our items to your satisfaction. Once an item has been reserved (by phone or email) payment must be received by us within 10 days. We will also do layaway with 25% down, with the balance paid in 90 days. Due to the lengthy time an item is held for layaway we cannot offer return privileges. Items not paid with-in the 90 day period will constitute forfeiture of the down payment, unless other arrangements have been made. We keep all transactions confidential. Prices are subject to change without notice and availability is subject to prior sale.

We accept personal checks and most major credit cards. We do not accept money orders. Clarks Antiques will pay the credit card fee.  Only if the buyer decides to return the item, will this fee be charged back to the buyer.  All checks should be made payable to Clark Linss. If a purchase is made by personal check, these orders may be held for up to 7 working days, after deposit of funds, or until the check clears. Items will be shipped after this holding period in order of receipt.

The usual 3-day inspection period applies on receipt of the item in which to determine if it is as we described. If for any reason you want to return the item, we must be notified by phone or email of your intent. At this point we will inform you of the shipping method and location. Upon receipt of the item, we will happily refund your full purchase payment, minus any return shipping charges, and credit card fee if used. The item to be returned must be received by us in the same condition as sent for full refund. Firing or taking the item apart will void return privileges; no exceptions. Buyer will pay all return shipping charges. If there is an error on our part about the item shipped, we will pay the return shipping charges. Any damage incurred by shipper must be taken up with the shipper.

We ship  antique guns, knives, and ammunition within the United States only.  We will expedite each order received upon receipt of payment. Please allow 1-2 days handling. We normally ship by U.S. Postal Service priority or registered mail and insure up to the purchase price of the item unless the buyer specifies something different.  All ammunition is shipped by UPS ground. We will email a tracking number to you the day the item ships. Buyer is responsible for all shipping and insurance charges. If the item requires shipment to a FFL or Curio & Relic license holder, you must provide us with a signed copy of that license holder with the appropriate shipping address. An adult signature will be required at delivery. The second attempt to deliver will start the three day return privileges.

Hand Gun shipping is $30 plus insurance.

Long Gun shipping is $55 plus insurance.

Some items that are larger than normal size may cost extra. We will send a refund check for any postage/insurance paid in excess of actual costs. We do not make profits from postage or insurance. If you prefer us to ship and insure by some other method, we will do our best to accommodate you. We recommend insuring your purchase for the actual cost you paid, but if for some reason you choose not to insure for full cost, that is your choice and your risk/responsibility.
