Would like to hear from folks who have bought books/booklets, medallions, BB guns, what have you from the Daisy Museum. I'm interested in knowing what the shipping costs were. TIA

Mark, The only small stuff I bought from the museum, I bought AT the museum. I did have a model 25 shipped from there and it was about $15. I don't know how they estimate their costs. If I were to have other things sent I would make sure the volume of products was worth the shipping costs. Not just one or two pieces.

I think what I'm seeing is they add shipping together on multiple items as if it was a single item. A book and medallion was estimated at $30 or some such. Just a single medallion is estimated at $13.85, book alone was about $16. Could be they charge the greater individual  shipping fee for items that fit in a package together.

I can't find the receipt to save my life, but I know when I ordered the Daisy Collector Guide from them, the initial shipping quote was very high.  Not long after I made the order, I got an email with the adjusted shipping, and it was much more reasonable.  I think their software guesses on the (very) high side, to cover their butts!

BurghDude-I had a similar experience. I just ordered some items from them and the shipping was quoted as $22. After I paid I got a notice the next day $11 had ben refunded. 
I wonder if they go for a worst case estimate then adjust it if the actual costs are less?
Had a lot of small things, medallions, pocket knives..........nothing big or heavy. Perhaps the minimum for each item individually is in the initial cost and by combining them they change it to the actual cost?

They do have a disclaimer saying they won't overcharge and if you pay too much they will refund the overage, so it seems they are being fair about it. Still, they could do better by updating their software to give accurate shipping charges right out of the gate like the rest of the online retail sites seem to be able to do.

I don't know if anyone is interested, but the Museum has guns which were returns/rebuilds. They used to sell these for about 1/2 the MSRP. Current models mostly. You'd have to call for availability and pricing. They're not listed on the website.

Talked to them yesterday.
They have 1938B, and pink ones, for about 1/2 price.
