How to Purchase a custom rifle

The procedures and regulations for ordering custom builds and inventory rifles from Horizon Firearms.

• All orders and sales must conform to federal and local regulations. Buyers must be at least 18 years old. We are required to conduct a National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) check and/or an appropriate state background check for the state of residence/delivery for all purchasers. We cannot sell rifles to any individual who is a federally prohibited person. For more information refer to this ATF FAQ that explains firearm sales to consumers.

• The easiest and most efficient way to begin your order of a Z-Custom or Semi-Custom rifle build is to fill out our custom order form. We are also available by email and phone (979-229-4664 during our normal business hours) to discuss your rifle build. We are happy to consult free of charge on what you seek in a rifle's components, caliber, specifications, and features, as well as the shooting situation(s) in which you will use your rifle, to ensure that you receive the best and most appropriate firearm for your wants and needs.

• Once your custom order is complete, we will email you a price quote. Quotes are valid for 30 days. After you confirm the build and price, we will issue you a formal invoice. A deposit of 50 percent in check, cashier's check, money order, credit card or cash (in person) is required to begin building your rifle. The full balance is due by same payment methods prior to the delivery and/or shipment of your custom order.

• Standard build time between payment of deposit and delivery is 10 to 16 weeks. Certain specialized components may require a longer time frame to obtain, which we will inform you of at the time of your order.

• If you need to cancel your order for any reason, please contact us as soon as possible. Orders canceled within the first 48 hours of order date will receive the full deposit back. Any orders canceled after 48 hours have passed, but before 4 weeks, will forfeit 10% of the deposit. Any cancellation past 4 weeks of original order date will forfeit the full 50% deposit.

• If you are purchasing a rifle we have in stock, full payment is due in check, cashier's check, money order, credit card or cash (in person) to ship your gun or pick it up in person at our pro shop in College Station, Texas. Payment for services and accessories is due in full before we perform the service or ship your order by same payment methods.

• Any customer provided components must be received within two weeks of deposit date. Components received after that time may result in a delay in final production and completion. This is VERY important in regard to optics. If optics are not received in time, your rifle will be bore sighted, but not sighted in with your scope.

•Once your rifle has been inspected, tested, and shot, and meets our .5 MOA guarantee, you will receive an email with photos of your rifle, a photo of the proof target, and an invoice. Final payment is due at that time. Any rifle order not shipped (to an FFL) or picked up within two weeks of final payment, will be subject to a weekly storage fee of $50.

• The most expeditious way to receive your custom order is in person at our College Station pro shop. We ship rifle and ammunition orders only to FFL (Federal Firearm Licensed) dealers near you, which you must specify prior to shipment. If you don't know of an FFL dealer located near you, we can assist in finding one (or more) that is most conveniently located. Note that the FFL dealer will likely charge a transfer fee in order to pick up your rifle. Horizon Firearms is not responsible for the amount of the fee, which is not included in your payment to us and must be paid directly to the dealer.

We welcome your order and strive to make the process as easy and efficient as possible.

“Derrick was a huge help working with me to decide on the design and colors for the KG gun kote job on my recent AR15 build. We exchanged our thoughts and ideas on both what I wanted and what would be possible. The result was better than anything I anticipated, and I get tons of compliments on my custom painted AR15 at local 3-gun matches or while at the range.”
“Derrick builds some fine rifles. I picked up the .280 that he built for me and took it to the range for the first time yesterday morning. I was counting on a fouling shot and 3 others in another area. The fouling shot was right on and the other three were touching. Ended up with a .490 group, the first time I shot it! This is the second rifle that he has built for me and I am very pleased with each one. He takes the time and gets a good load worked up. I told him that I wanted the 280 to shoot 160 Accubonds and that is what he worked up for me. The dimple fluting he did on my barrel and bolt really adds character.”
“Got a chance to shoot both rifles. Once I got them zeroed in, I shot the HS Precision stock one 3 shots, and they were all touching. I shot the McMillan stock rifle 2 times and they were touching. Actually all 5 shots were touching. Great shooting rifles, thank you!”
