My order never arrived.

First, check that your order has shipped from Honos Guard and that the carrier’s tracking number shows that it has been delivered.

Shipping times and reliability vary greatly by carrier. We have found UPS to have good tracking systems, and US Postal Service’s systems to be less reliable.

If your tracking number shows delivered, and you did not get the package, there is not much we can do until you contact the carrier directly. 

For UPS the phone number is 1-800-742-5877. They are generally quite good at resolving these issues, however should they fail, please give us a call. 

For UPS: If your tracking has ceased to show movement on the package, and delivery has exceeded the expected delivery date by 2 business days for expedited services or 5 business days for ground services, then please give us a call or send us an email.

If USPS shows delivered and you did not receive the package then you will need to contact them at 800-275-8777 or we cannot file a claim. IMPORTANT: Ask to speak with the postmaster for your city directly. We have never seen an instance where anyone else cared enough or was empowered to help.

For USPS: If your tracking has ceased to show movement on the package, and delivery has exceeded the expected delivery date by 4 business days for Priority Mail and 7 business days for First Class Mail, then please call or send us an email and we will figure out a solution.

Why don’t you ship internationally?

Due to evolving government regulations and to keep our prices as low as we can, we only accept and ship orders within the United States.

What is your return policy?

In the rare instance a return is necessary the guidelines below will affect the return. We will gladly accept return for refund any unopened and unused product.

All returned merchandise must have a Return Material Authorization number (RMA) issued by Honos Guard. Goods returned with an RMA must be in original condition and packaging and all contents and documentation must be present. Items returned without an RMA number will be returned at the shipper’s expense.

Simply return any new unused item back to us within 10 days from the date delivered. Shipping charges are not refundable. Once a scope is mounted it becomes used and is not eligible for refund, exchange or return. Placing a scope in rings constitutes mounting. For your protection, items must be returned shipping prepaid, insured for the full value and safely wrapped to prevent shipping damage.

Visit our Return Policy page to submit a return request and receive your RMA number.

Any returns without the original packaging and instructional material, or the packaging and materials are damaged, a 20% restocking fee will be assessed.  

Any merchandise that is returned showing signs of wear, installation or use can be denied a refund and any return shipping cost will be incurred by the customer.  This includes mounting a scope.  One a scope is mounted, it becomes used. Placing a scope in rings also constitutes mounting.
