Frequently Asked Questions
Orders and Shipping
When will my order ship out?
Typically, you can expect your order to ship within 5 business days. Upper receivers may take up to 15 business days to ship out. Serialized items (firearms, lower receivers, etc.) may take 7-10 business days to ship out. During the holiday and peak seasons shipping times will vary due to the high order volume. We do work very hard to get your order out to you, and apologize if there is a delay with it. Let our Customer Service Department know if your order has passed the above ship time, and they will have your order sent to our Shipping Department to investigate the reason for the delay.

I ordered a lower build kit, and an upper receiver, but only received my lower build kit. Where is my upper receiver?
The packing slip inside of your package will only list the items that were sent in that shipment. If one of the items is not listed on that packing slip, then it is being shipped out separately. Upper receivers are usually shipped separately from other items. Upper Receivers generally take longer to ship than any other products that we sell.
I only received my lower receiver. The lower build kit from my order was never sent to me. Where is my lower build kit?
Our Compliance Department only ships serialized items. Lower Receivers and Firearms are shipped separately from the other products. Our Shipping Department handles all other products. The Shipping Department will ship the other items on your order to the shipping address that was provided.
Why haven’t I received the upper receiver from my order?
Upper receivers can take up to 15 business days from the order date to ship from our warehouse.

California Magazine Ban Lifted August 14th, 2020
The Ninth Circuit Federal Court of Appeals issued a much-anticipated opinion on August 14 finding the large capacity magazine ban is unconstitutional. Palmetto State Armory applauds the court’s ruling and is proud to have provided an affidavit in support of the challenge to the illegal ban.
As the court said, “California’s near-categorical ban of LCMs infringes on the fundamental right to self-defense…. [I]t substantially burdens the core right of self-defense guaranteed to the people under the Second Amendment. It cannot stand.”
We value your freedom and constitutional rights above all else. However, TLS will not accept new orders nor will ship any order until the Ninth Circuit Federal Court of Appeals decision becomes finalized. Once this decision is finalized, we will start accepting new orders and ship 10+ round magazines to California Customers.
