Our expert gunsmith services can keep your firearms in top shape even if your schedule doesn’t allow you to do it yourself. A broken or dirty firearm is not a problem for our gunsmiths. Just bring it in and we’ll get it taken care of in no time.

Here’s how easy (and free) our finance application process is

RAM Arms finance application

Customers often ask us how much it costs and how hard it is to apply for our financing. The answer is … it costs NOTHING and it’s easy!

There are no fees or other costs for getting approved. You only pay once you’ve chosen and walked out of our store with the firearm, ammo and accessories you decided to put on your RAM Arms account. Interest rates are 9-12% for a 6 month payment plan (tons cheaper than a credit card!)

There is no credit check. You just need income and a bank account that isn’t empty to get approved. Your limit is based on your income and ability to maintain a positive balance in your checking account.

A $450 gun purchase would mean you walk out of the store with the gun, pay a down payment of about $75 and $20-30 every two weeks.

How easy is it? Here’s the whole application form that you can do from the comfort of your home on your computer, smartphone or tablet:

That’s the whole application and since it’s automated, you could receive an approval in 10 minutes and be buying today!

A busy weekend and gunsmith backlog update: 10-10-15

P22 Field strip

Friday and Saturday were the busiest we’ve seen since June – fall has apparently arrived.

Three pistols and a revolver now have polished, lighter and crisper trigger pulls, 2 shotguns have been repaired and are now working as expected.

There are 4 guns that are much cleaner than when they came in – many more to go.

Oh, and we sold almost everything that arrived on Thursday. We have another truck with a ton of guns and ammo arriving on Tuesday (so they tell me.)

Pistol sight installs will resume Tuesday as our replacement sight press arrives and we will be back to 15-30 minutes, as-you-wait.

Gun cleaning is on a 2-3 day backlog and may increase as pre-hunting trip maintenance continues to increase.

We have about an 8-day backlog for gun repair work, much of this is dependent upon part availability, but we are working to repair and return firearms to owners within 8 business days.

What’s coming in today: 10-08-15

The flooding in South Carolina has delayed our re-stock this week, but finally, both trucks are showing up today and here’s some of what’s on them:

  • Glock 23 Gen 4 40S&W pistols
  • Ruger 9E full size 9mm pistols
  • Canik TP9 9mm pistols
  • Smith & Wesson Shield 9mm pistols
  • Hi-point 9mm and 45acp carbines
  • Smith & Wesson M&P 15 AR-15 rifles
  • Stevens 320 security 12ga home defense shotguns
  • Ammo
  • Holsters

The trucks should be here before lunch, so drop by and see what came in!

If you have money coming in (regardless of source) and keep your bank account in the positive, you should be approved for a RAM Arms store account. No credit check, easy payment terms and low interest.

We have the best terms in the region and we follow-up the sale with impeccable service.

Your RAM Arms finance account can be used for in-stock items or even special order guns if there’s something you want that isn’t in the store.
