All firearms and magazines shipped to our factories must be verified to be completely empty of all live ammunition. Empty cartridges (casings) must be removed from chambers and magazine. Please do not ship live ammunition of any form to the factory. Accessories such as scopes, scope mounts, slings and etc. should be removed before returning the firearm. Older gun boxes may be considered valuable. If so, you should NOT send these boxes to Ruger, as they may be damaged during shipping. Please make sure there are no previous shipping labels on the box used to ship your firearm to ensure acceptance from the shipping provider. Ruger assumes no responsibility for lost or damaged boxes.

Please include a note in with the firearm to be serviced that identifies:
Please contact the appropriate Service Department to receive a RMA number (Return Material Authorization Number) before shipping your firearm in for service. This number will allow us to quickly and properly process your firearm.
Please retain a notation of the serial number of your firearm in your possession for future reference when contacting our service department. Please package your firearm in a suitable container making sure that any loose items such as bolts or magazines are securely packaged (padded) and are not loose in the carton.

Please do not include your carrying case, scabbard, or custom accessories with a firearm being shipped to the factory for service. DO NOT SEND GUN BOXES OR LITERATURE THAT YOU CONSIDER TO BE COLLECTOR’S ITEMS – THESE ARE INVARIABLY DAMAGED OR DESTROYED IN SHIPMENT.
