Action Army Type 96 Spring Guide
We ship fast. We don't slack off when it comes to internet orders in the day of Amazon Prime, so as a small business, we have to work extra hard to prove ourselves to players that expect fast service.
June 2021 Covid Update: USPS is having overwhelming shipping delays outside our control. For the most part, packages are only delayed 1-2 days with Priority, however sometimes they take a week or longer to arrive. Please be patient as USPS is working hard to fulfill their workload with limited staff. Tracking numbers may not be scanning at each transit stop like usual, but are shipped out. If you received a tracking # from us, your order was physically shipped out of our warehouse even if it says "pre-shipment" or "label created". FedEx is faster and more reliable for tracking but may also have some delays too. Choose FedEx if you want more reliable service.
All orders ship out same or next business day. We don't pre-sell (pre-orders) merchandise we don't have physically on-hand, currently in our warehouse, and ready to ship. We just don't do that kind of thing. Seriously, we do not screw around and delay orders. We know you want your package fast, so we take steps to ensure your order arrives safely ASAP. All orders will receive an notification with tracking information after it ships. You can also log into your account here to view the current tracking progress.
Order Cancellation policy: Customers must inform us ASAP via email with their order # in the subject heading if they wish to cancel. Please cancel within 1 hour of placing your order. If we don't receive the email in time, it will ship same-day and you will be responsible for the shipping costs and return fees. We are not responsible for missed emails on cancellations.
Stolen Packages: Insurance and purchase protection does not cover porch theft after it has been delivered. Packages delivered are your responsibility. Ship to your office, work, or a friend's house that is secure if worried. If your package was stolen, please contact the carrier immediately and file a police report. Signatures required on expensive packages, so be home or ship to your work address if needed.
Professional Service: 100% of the Airsoft Atlanta staff has played airsoft for many years. We promise to treat your order like it was our own package, with care, and speedy delivery.

Online Sales Exchange/Return Policy:
A quick note about our returns policy: Airsoft guns are considered a hobby-grade, electronic product. Airsoft products are not consumer grade toys. These are susceptible electronic devices that can easily be damaged without proper care. They are also considered weapons in some jurisdictions, so like real firearms' shops, we have an 'all sales final' policy. However, to keep our customers happy, we have the following exceptions to the all sales final policy:
Exchanges on some products are allowed within 14 days of the delivery date. Exchanges are only for manufacturer defects or shipping damage upon delivery. If an item is received damaged, or is incorrectly shipped, please contact Customer Support immediately so we can resolve the issue quickly. Exchanges are generally for the exact same product, but we will consider other exchanges or store credit on a case-by-case basis. Exchanges are not returns. Exchanges are for the same or similar item in cases of defects or damage. Exchanges for manufacturer's defects are at our sole discretion on going directly through us or the manufacturer. After 14 days, the warranty is always through the manufacturer. Customer is responsible for shipping expenses to us or transportation of all exchanges and defects.
Returns: We do not offer returns on any of our products. All sales are considered final due to the nature of airsoft products. Exchanges for defects are within 14 days only. We offer some return exceptions on a case by case basis but generally all sales are final.
Gun Warranties: Guns are fully warrantied directly through the manufacturer on ALL guns. Umarex, G&G, Valken, ASG and others all have extended warranties for 30 days - 1 year duration depending on the item. Please check with the manufacturer on the warranty for defects. Airsoft Atlanta does not cover returns/warranties for guns with manufacturer defects after 14 days. Items that fall outside this realm are covered by the 14 day exchange policy above. We do not cover shipping expenses.
Please email us to request your RMA # before returning your product(s) and include the RMA # on the outside of the package, with your contact information on the inside.
Please allow 7-10 days to process RMAs for exchanges or refunds as we are extremely busy with sales volume. Please email us if it's been more than 2 weeks after we received your RMA so we can followup.
In-Store Retail Sales Exchange/Return Policy:
Same policy as above (online sales) - please bring your merchandise and printed receipt into the store within 14 days of purchase if you have a defective product or warranty issue. If a defect is identified, we will offer to repair the product for free, offer to exchange for the same item, or issue store credit (if that original product is out of stock). We offer exchanges only in the case of an identifiable manufacturer defect. All sales are final in cases not covered above.
Additional Exchange/Return Policy Information:
Airsoft guns are a niche hobby industry product not fit for general consumer consumption. These are fragile, advanced electronic, non-toy products. Airsoft guns are hobby products intended for adult use only. These are not meant for minors under the age of 18 to play with. If you purchase an airsoft product for your kid, and they destroy it with improper use, that's not our responsibility. Misuse, user damage, or user modification voids all exchanges and returns. Please see list below:
It is important to note that exchanges are contingent upon inspection of item(s) once we receive it. We have the right to refuse warranty work, exchanges, or refunds at our discretion. Compatibility, size, fit, and upgrade parts are ultimately the responsibility of the customer at purchase. Airsoft Atlanta will not be held liable for unfit compatibility issues on parts, magazines, batteries, and other merchandise (exchanges may be allowed, in some cases, without return shipping covered). Custom guns, upgraded guns, HPA installed guns, custom built rifles (snipers, etc), are all sales final. No returns or exchanges for these are allowed due to the nature of the work.
Manufacturers directly cover most warranty issues. Please contact them if you're having a gun issue.
Exchanged items requirements:
- does not show any sign of wear, user modification, or user caused damage in any way. No scratches, paint marks, or repairs.
- no customer damaged parts, guns, improperly installed, or used items
- original orange tip must not be altered, scratched, painted black, or removed (against federal law) - no exceptions
- be in original packaging with all manuals, tools, packaging, and accessories included in new or like-new condition
- must not be batteries, bbs, parts, upgrade parts, parts' compatibility issues (responsibility of the customer), custom built guns, EG Smoke, or other consumable items. No exchange or returns on parts.
- guns that don't perform up your level of expectation are not a defect and are not covered for the warranty. We don't guarantee groupings or accuracy
- clearance sale products are sold as-is final (clearance, blow-out sale items, open box, custom built guns, sale, deal of the day, salvage garden, etc, cannot be returned or exchanged - no exceptions)
- clothing and apparel items may be exchanged for a different size, so long as all original tags are not removed. Clothing may not be used or washed before exchange.
Airsoft Atlanta Repairs:
We have the right to repair any exchanged item before a replacement is offered. If repair or refurbishment is not possible, the item will be replaced or store credit issued if that item is no longer in stock. If a product is easily fixable after the 14 days, or warranty period, we offer free repairs for the life of the gun (simple repairs only) in-store. This only applies if you purchased the gun through us. We cannot open or repair internal gearboxes after the 14 days.
