Backorder Policy -
how to make an offer Covid-19 Update

Backorder Policy

Due to current global circumstances and increased industry demand, many Scopelist products are out of stock, or backordered. Furthermore, the release of many new products has been delayed. Although we strive to keep every product in stock at all times, this is simply not possible. As such, our backorder policy is as follows:

  • We collect full payment at the time you place a backorder. If you are not comfortable with paying in advance, please consider signing up for a Back in Stock notification on the product page.
  • If you would like to change or cancel your backorder, please Contact Us. We can cancel your backorder and issue a full refund, add or remove an item or items, change the shipping method, etc. before your order is in shipping.
  • We have a 6 month window to refund your credit card for a backorder. If you request to cancel your backorder after 6 months, we may need to issue a refund by ACH transfer or mailing a check.
  • We will ship your order as soon as the backordered product is available. If there is an in stock item and a backordered item on your order, our standard policy is to ship the order complete. If you would like us to ship the in stock item(s) first, please Contact Us. Partially shipping your order may incur additional shipping fees.
  • If you are backordering a firearm, please see our How to Purchase a Firearm page. Ensure you have an FFL listed in your shipping address. If you do not provide the FFL information at the time of your purchase, shipping your order once it is in stock may be delayed.

Backorder ETAs

Due to current supply chain issues, increased shipping times, high demand, etc. backorder ETAs are extended. Most of our manufacturers are either not providing us backorder ETAs at all, or backorder ETAs we are provided are unreliable. 

  • Please understand that backorder ETAs, by definition, are estimates and cannot be guaranteed. 
  • Please understand that in most cases, we will not be able to provide a backorder ETA with any degree of certainty nor will we be able to provide ETA updates regularly. In most cases, the shipments we receive will come when they come with little or no prior warning. 

If you are not comfortable with the uncertain backorder ETA, please consider signing up for a Back in Stock notification on the product page rather than placing a backorder.
