The Glock website is VERY elementary. I don't care for it.

i have an HK, but i don't like their site. lack of info. but i do like springfield's site :) very nicely done, it's like you're about to buy computer parts or storage media (ie zip drive) but it's weapons! :D

Kimber's website is crap. They had a bunch of links that lead nowhere on their old design and their new one doesn't exist yet.

The sigarms site needs to be reworked,great firearm, but unattractive,non-functioning,poor graphics on their site.

The Charles Daly website bites guano.

2 of the best are Springfield and Taurus.

The Worst?

American Derringer. :barf:

Colt's website, when they have one, is unbelievably poor.

March 31, 2003, 06:35 PM
The ones I've been to have been bad. Perhaps having once worked for a web development company & seeing good sites has warped my opinion but the site my 15 y/o son made for his band is much nicer than he ones I've been to. Maybe they need to hire a 15 y/o.

Bushmaster has one of the best websites. I really don't like Springfield's as much and think they need to model thiers more after Bushmasters.

Armalight has a good website.

Armscorp has a HORRIBLE website.

Vangcomp has a good website.

Robar has a cool website.

Fulton has a neat website.

Colt's is pretty cool.

Kel-Tec worst!!!

Browning has a nice website. I really like the monthly wallpapers.

Ruger has a decent website.

Springfield has an adequate website.

Caspians site could use a little help.

March 31, 2003, 08:39 PM
Browning has a really good site.
I also like Remington's site, full of useful information.
Marlin's is ok.
Hornady & Mossberg's sites are pretty bland.

Colt's is horrible.

EAA's website was a pain in the butt the only time I visited it last year.

March 31, 2003, 09:25 PM
Springfield's pretty lame, it's hard to find much good info on their site.

S & W is hard to use, you have to navigate through drop=down menus to find anything.

As a matter of fact I can't think of any firearms manufacturer with a fairly decent website. Most of them are a few years behind the curve, or just poorly done. Maybe the gun companies think the internet isn't a particularly good business tool/resource.

Beretta USA's is okay.

I like Ruger's, too.

March 31, 2003, 11:42 PM
H&K's site here in the US is pretty worthless; which is a cryin' shame since they make such wonderful products.. :(

There are lots of bad websites out there. Colt comes to mind with mis-matched pictures to descriptions, discontinued models and/or outdated descriptions of current models, incorrect spellings including manufacturers' names. Terrible.

Springfield's page is decent but it takes them a year or so to add new models to the product list.

I think Glock has a perfect website for Glock. Functional, reliable but nothing special to look at. :p

I could rewrite KelTecs in Notepad in about 15 mintues but it serves it's purpose, again, like their guns. ;)

Remington has probably the best page overall. Lots of not-directly-product related info.

RockRiver's page tells you what you need to be told but they could use some nice pictures. I've offered several times to do it for them for a reduced price on a 1911 I had ordered but no dice. :(

CZ-USA's (http://www.cz-usa.com/) site is very good. CZ Czech (http://www.czub.cz/) is useful if you need an internal pic or parts diagram, but if you want to know what the parts are called, good luck.

If I am missing some makers... let me know at: ogre@madogre.com I want to keep this roster up to date.

You should add Ithaca's website to your list:


They have a lot of good info on there, too.

April 1, 2003, 11:47 AM
www.stiguns.com is an excellent site :cool:

www.bultransmark.com is simple but functional. ;)

April 1, 2003, 12:29 PM
Savage and Marlin have good websites. Marlin even has a small chat board,IIRC.

April 1, 2003, 01:02 PM
Thanks for the list. I've bookmarked it for future reference. I also use this one: http://www.geocities.com/capitolhill/lobby/1221/guns.htm
However it seems to be sometimes difficult to access lately.

Geocities? :barf:

http://www.ValtroUSA.com is a great site.

April 1, 2003, 09:03 PM
I liked Remington's site. Had a lot on it and many pictures. :)

I really like Ruger's new website. It gives me time to watch paint dry and my hair grow while it loads the graphics. If it was any slower, the guns they are selling could be C&R by the time it finishes.
