    Default reasonable shipping?

    So, I've been planning to build a longrifle as a winter project for a few years now, and I was getting set to order a parts set from Track of the Wolf, and I wanted to check on the shipping, so I put everything in the cart and calculated my shipping. They want over $200 to ship it up here!

    I haven't called them yet, I'm going to try to do that today, but I was wondering if anyone else has built these, and if there is a way to get more reasonable shipping rates, or if you've used another company to get parts from.

    Thanks

    So, I get the thrill of answering my own post...

    I called Track, and the shipping rates for Alaska are kind of jacked up. The guy I talked to went and checked with the shipping department, and it should only cost about $55 to ship a complete parts kit up here.

    If you're not shipping through the post office, ask them if they'll ship parcel post, it should drop your shipping cost.

    yeah, the first few times i ordered from them i really felt bent over... but they have the best selection, so i figured oh well...
    just got their printed catalog, and it states that they charge "actual shipping costs".
    next time i am calling on the phone (not ordering on the web) and see if they will ship for cost.
    of course i got so much stuff from them i don't need to order for a while...

    I was thinking the same thing when I was ordering from TOW from their website. I didnt go through with the purchase as I was planning on calling them direct to get the charges straighteded out.

    And it seems everything shipping wise they quote is per UPS fees and not USPS.

    Glad to hear they are reasonable about it as I too am planning on a gun parts purchase.
