I've noticed the subject vendor listed in a discussion or two.
Just wanted to get feedback from folks that have done business with them.
General thoughts?
Quality of customer service?
Accuracy of product descriptions?
Turn-around time?

Addendum / edit -- acknowledging the positive comments from the past... just checking to confirm for recent transactions.

Most appreciatively,
J. P. Morris

No personal experience but the subject has been discussed here before, and seemed to be favorable

I've bought 2 guns from them, and a friend has bought probably a dozen (or close to it.
He likes rolling blocks and they get them).

Based on my (and my friend's) experience I can say:

1. They usually have accurate descriptions. If they say the bore is good, it's good, excellent, it's excellent. They seem to err on the side of favoring the customer.
2. Prices seem generally fair.
3. They know how to pack and ship.
4. Shipment and payment are prompt and professional.
5. To the extent I know what the book is, they are by-the-book.

I can say I'm a satisfied customer, as is my friend.

I've never seen so much $200 junk in one place in my life.

Must be where Cracker Barrel shops for guns.

I have purchased at least 6-8 guns from them.Their descriptions are honest, prices are fair and I have always been pleased with the transactions. One of the better dealers around.

Thanks to all for the feedback. I've rolled the dice on a Savage 430. I'll look it just like any risk; be cognizant of how much exposure you can live with. We'll see how it looks when it arrives.
Safe Shooting,
jpm

I have a Savage 430 in pretty good shape, very unusual gun. I have the 16ga, heavy, was built on 12ga frame. Shoots good.

I'll be anxious to see how you like it.
