Our Prices: Rinkor Arms strives to provide high quality firearms and ammunition at the best market prices. These prices may change as products sell out and are re-supplied by our distributors and manufacturers. Your understanding is appreciated when stock is sold-out and replaced with higher cost items. In the event of misprinted prices, we reserve the right to sell the items at the correct and current price.

Sales Tax: California residents are subject to 9% sales tax on any purchase made in the store.

Background Check Fee. There is a $37.19 (non-refundable) background check fee charged by the California Department of Justice (DOJ) with the purchase of any firearm. This fee is a state fee and is not retained by Rinkor Arms.  Should you be denied by the DOJ from purchasing a firearm when your background check is run, the $37.19 fee must still be paid.  DOJ background checks are not required for purchases of true muzzleloaders or antique firearms.
