Which gun company do YOU love?

I love it when I have an interaction with a company that makes me want to give them all my business. I've recently had issues which have caused me to get in contact with three gun related companies and I'm happy to say that they all made me customers for life... or at least until their good customer service stops.

RCBS
I purchased a hand-priming tool brand new and when I got it I found out that neither my Lee or RCBS shellholders would fit on the plastic shaft that guided the piston. Confused, I called RCBS customer service and relayed the problem. They explained that their "young" engineers had forgotten to take into consideration the legacy bevel on the old RCBS shellholders when it came to the new hand priming setup. Yeah, what a pain in the backside. Well anyway, they offered to send me out a new shellholder at no charge. Bad move as a company to design something that wasn't backwards compatible, but at their genuine effort to fix the problem has made me believe in them.

MidwayUSA
I've purchased numerous items from Midway and usually they show up on time and in great shape. One order that contained 2k of bullets (projectiles) and a bunch of MTM storage cases came in a large box without any padding. Consequently two of the MTM cases were shattered. A rifle storage bag was also somewhat torn. I promptly called up Midway and explained the situation. The fellow on the phone was most courteous and sent me out a replacement bag and 2 MTM cases along with a third extra for my trouble. Bad packaging job, but in the end they did an excellent job of fixing the problem and I'll continue to give them my business.

Kimber
I love Kimber 1911s. Those pistols just feel right in my hands, but unfortunately I haven't always known exactly how to disassemble them. I'll omit the details on how, but I damaged a small part of the extractor. After calling Kimber customer service and leaving a message, I finally got a call back from a fellow there. He questioned me to get a sense of the issue and after telling him that I'm sure I am the cause of the extractor's failure to extract (after I did what I did), he told me to send that piece in and he'll confirm. So I did, and finally got a call from him and he reconfirmed the problem. I told him again that I'd be more than happy to pay for the replacement part considering I knew I was at fault, but in the end he insisted on sending me a replacement at no charge. What a company!

These are some companies that make me all warm and fuzzy inside. Which ones do you like?

Fusion Firearms impressed me a while back- I called to place a parts order and Bob Serva answered his own phone-

Gotta respect a guy that does that. The parts have held up quite well too!

CDNN, two months after I called asking about a PTR-91 Troy called me back today telling me he was sorry he had not got any more in but gave me a number of a guy who he new had some. I don't get that kind of service from my best friends or family haha.

I used to feel that way about Beretta, but not anymore. They only pretend to offer replacement parts for my 90-two(don't need any, but want some in case I someday do), they are the only ones that make holsters that actually fit it and flat out refuse to sell or ship them to the USA. This is not very good product support, or customer support. I hate to say it, but they will never get another penny from me as much as I like their products. Unless of course they someday redeem themselves.

Years ago I had a North American Arms .22 mag mini bought used. Eventually it quit firing. Being handy and a bit of a tinkerer I took it apart to "fix" it. Needless to say my efforts were in vain. I put all of the parts in a padded envelope, sent it back to NAA, asked them to fix it and send me the bill.
3 weeks later I received a UPS package. Inside was a completely rebuilt, polished .22 mag mini with new grips and a reinstated lifetime warranty. The itemized bill of charges showed a balance owed of $0.00.

I bought a Taurus .22 mag Ultralite revolver as a carry piece for a family member. Gave it to a "friend of a friend" who was a "gunsmith" for a trigger job. Long story short he completely trashed the weapon.
Sent it back to Taurus with a note, asking them to repair it and send me the bill.
They repaired it at no cost and reinstated the lifetime warranty and paid for shipping back to me.

Reality Check : It will always be a matter of who got what results from dealing with whom.

The fact is that most ,if not all of us, that have been around awhile have experienced some of the good, as well as some of the bad, in all of the companies. Putting any of them up on a pedestal will not quarantee the success of the next product you buy from them.

I will admitt that if we didn't have our different favorites however, there would be a lot less choices out there. :D

Kimber, (EDITED) Just got my Pro CDP II back from Kimber, works flawlessly now and I am not afraid to carry it. Awesome company.
Colt, only company who produced a 1911 that has not failed on me (initially), my pre-2000 colt .38 super.
LWRC, love your sexy rifles.
MidwayUSA, good company with prompt shipping.
Talon Arms, do most of my dealings with them, they are nearby, friendly, intelligent and have what I want typically.
There are more, but like the above poster said, putting them on a pedestal won't guarantee that the next order won't be a catastrophe or full of paper weightness and I'd rather not jinx myself.

Ruger and Kel Tec for gun makers. Their service is awesome, and they make good products that any working American can afford.

As for supplies, Midway USA, Ammunitiontogo.com, DoubleTap Ammo, and Brownells have always treated me well.

As for local gun shops, I only really patronize 2 of them... Gallensons, and Doug's Shootin' Sports. There are others that are ok, but those two are great.

Savage - I've got two Savage rifles, a 10FP Sniper in .308 and a 112BVSS in .30-06. Both of them are outstanding 600 yard guns. I'm sure they're outstanding 1,000 yard guns as well although I've never had the opportunity to find out. Savage is the value in a bolt gun, bar none.

Glock - I've got two second generation Glock pistols, a Glock 19 and a Glock 22. I'm not sure I've EVER had a gun related malfunction in either gun, and I've had the 22 since they were introduced. When I go out today, it will be on my hip.

Dunno about love, but I'm uniformly pleased with products from Marlin, Savage, Stevens, Remington, Springfield, Winchester, Mossberg, CZ, Taurus, Baikal, Izhmash, SigArms, Kahr, RWS, Weirauch, milsurps, others.

Good experiences with Brownell's, MidwayUSA, Numrich, CDNN, CTD, JSC, J&G, Davidson's, OpticsPlanet, theopticzone, SWFA, Natchez, Champions Choice, MidSouth Shooter's Supply, Dillon, many others. A lot more good than bad out there.

I've had sketchy experiences with products from Ruger (new), Kel-Tec (new), Smith & Wesson (used), H&R (used), Mitchell (new), Rossi (new), T/C (used), IMI (used), couple others. Nothing real bad, just lemons or normal wear & tear.

Pretty much ambivalent - not bad, but nothing to write home about - on Glock, Henry, ....

FBMG has taken pretty good care of me. My small local dealer is head and shoulders above all though. He seems to always have hard to get items and sells things at prices people acuse me of lying about. He has only raised his prices in proportion to what his distrubtors uped things since the scare and he didn't raise prices on anything he already had in stock. His pricing and honesty lets me know how full of it some other places are.

As for local gun shops, I only really patronize 2 of them... Gallensons, and Doug's Shootin' Sports.

I am very suprised to hear that.

Dillon Precision as far as reloading equipment and other gun related accessories. Prompt, friendly service. In my experience their no B.S. warranty is just that.

TexasRifleman
February 26, 2009, 05:10 PM
Dillon, Redding Reloading, and Midway are the only companies I can put in that list. They actually make me WANT to spend more based on how they have taken care of problems over the years.

Redding especially. They have gone completely out of their way to make things right, one that was totally my fault.

Another vote for glock for the same reason as Deanimator, (I haven't ever needed their service). I also have to love any company who hosts Defensive Pistol Matches for their patrons. If this thread were in the "non-firearm weapons" category my vote would have gone to CRKT; they have a place on their site to order free parts.

Dillon Precision. I bought a used press that had to be 20+ years old (previous owner never took it out of the box). Casting on the powder measure leaked powder around the slide. It was so old that the original parts were long discontinued.

They sent me a complete new measure, all new powder bushings to fit it, new primer slide bars, and the new fail-safe system N/C.

I have had quite a few Rugers over the years, and have never had any problems with them. As far as accessory/supplies companies I have had great luck with Natchez SS, and Gamaliels. I have bought from Natchez in the past, and they were good. I recently ordered some reloading components from them, and they shipped out same day and got to my house 2 days later. Same thing with Gamaliels. I ordered for the first time from them, and the package got here 3 days later. I have bought from Wiedners once so far, and shipping took 3-4 weeks from the date I ordered. Same basic stuff from there as Natchez and Gamaliel, just a lot longer wait.

Springfield just makes products I can't live without, Larue sent me free stickers, a Dillo beverage accessory, a hat, a bag, and Dillo spicy BBQ rub along with top-notch products and a Christmas card! Midway jusy has ridiculously fast shipping and a huge selection.

Springfield Armory. Here's why:

A couple of years ago, I bought an low number M1A Super Match from a co-worker for what I though was a steal. I was going over everything and checking all parts to see which were USGI. When I got to the bolt, I could not make sense of the markings so I called SA to ask them about them. They told me that the bolt may be under warranty (they had problems with some of their cast bolts and had a recall that started back in the 1990's).

A digital pic was sent to them and they confirmed that it indeed was covered under warranty. So, off to SA goes my my Super Match. About 4 weeks passes and I get a call from Mr. Dale Rader who runs their custom shop. Mr. Rader begins to apologize and explains that they had misplaced my rifle and that they were just starting to work on it.

When I sent it in, I had included a note requesting that they replace my bolt with a USGI one, so I asked him if that would be possible. He said "no problem, we're installing a Winchester for you". :D

He then says that the rifle is going to require a "little more work". So now I'm wondering what it needs and what it's going to cost me (M1 A parts aren't cheap).

He explains that they could not get the rifle to headspace properly and that it will need a NEW MATCH BARREL(OUCH! I'm thinking..... this is going to cost me big time). Then he tells me that they need to modify the receiver a bit when they install the bolt and that it will have to be COMPLETELY REFINISHED (now I'm really thinking I'm going to get slammed financially and that maybe I didn't get such a great deal on the rifle afterall.)

So, at this point I ask him how much all of this is going to cost. His reply: "Nothing, it's covered under Sprinfield's Lifetime Warranty". "We'll ship it back to you on our dime in a couple of days".

Me: "let me go over this again real quick.... you're going to install a USGI Winchester bolt, a brand new Heavy Match barrel and completely refinish my rifle and it's going to cost me nothing, not even freight to ship the gun back?"

Mr. Rader: "Yup"

I got it back about five days later and it looked brand new. I almost feel guilty about it to this day.:evil:

Folks, when Springfield says that their warranty is "lifetime" they really mean it. That rifle had at least two previous owners before I got it. By my count, the parts and labor that went into my rifle would have cost somewhere in the neighborhood of $900.00 if they were not covered under warranty.

Needless to say, I am a fan of Springfield Armory!

In practice, it may be a lifetime warranty. But it clearly states on their warranty information and if you call and ask them, the lifetime warranty is for the original owner only.

I called them about when I briefly owned a used EMP that I was having issues with. The woman I spoke to did say they weren't too picky about verifying who the original owner was like requiring a bill of sale, but she did reiterate the lifetime warranty was only for the original owner. So I guess if push came to shove, they have that to fall back on.

Midsouth Shooters Supply, Midway USA, Ruger, and Remington Arms. Merely through my experiences these are each great companies destined to remain in business to serve us all. Swift bullet Company also is beyond peer, as is Barnes bullet Manufacturing. Noslers have never left me cold, and Hornady is a honey. Buying American always works for me, as with my fabulous Burris Signature Select scope. Sierra bullets also work great, offering top-quality accuracy. Currently, my Diana from Germany is a top-notch air rifle. American manufacturers of air rifles need some German expertise quickly. Just my humble opinions regarding air and firepower, which are NOT the same thing by any stretch of the imagination. I'd challenge my .223 Remington in ANY contest against any available air rifle for long-range accuracy. An air rifle is NOT a centerfire firearm by any standards. cliffy

Another Midway USA fan here. Their prices aren't always the best around, but their customer service is second to none. I place several large orders with them a year and will continue to do so.

Ruger's customer service was prompt, free, and high quality, but the fact that I needed service on a new handgun (Ruger New Vaquero, finish problem) kind of tarnished their rep. a bit in my eyes.

Also, Marlin has my love for making the most fun and accurate carbine it has ever been my pleasure to own; an 1894 Cowboy Limited, .45 Colt. If I could only have one firearm, that would be it.

Springfield Armory is tops from personal experience.

Midway USA is also tops.

I have just purchased a Dillon press because of another top notch company.

Graf's reloading has always treated me well and I've always received first rate customer service from them. A guy there reccommended Dillon because of their reputation and he said he personally had a bushing wear out on a Dillon press after 20 years....so they mailed him a new one just for asking.

I haven't had any problems so far. It looks like I'll probably have to wait awhile for my Dillon press to break so I can experience their customer service in person.

So there's my input: Springfield Armory, Midway, Graf's, and Dillon.

I've contemplated a thread asking...

If you could only buy all your guns, in all types, from one manufacturer, which one would you choose?

I'd answer Ruger with Remington falling in 2nd place.
I really wish they (either of the two above) would make black rifles and even 1911s. Far fetched, I know.
Their feeble attempts with the Mini14 and the R-15 is a bit transparent.
I wish they would just jump right in like S&W did and go all the way.

I've often thought Ruger should start making AKs. Rugers are known for being tank-tough and reliable as all get out and so is the Kalashnikov. Ruger and the Kalashnikov are two things that would go together like toast and jam.

Not only does Nighthawk makes some of the world's finest production 1911s, but their customer service is quite good. They did some very good and timely aftermarket work for me and years later, when I broke an extractor and thumb safety (after tens of thousands of rounds of ABUSE!), they replaced the checkered and hard chromed parts at no cost to me. Good phone service, great products, fast turn around times...Nighthawk is the only gun company that stands out in my mind as exceptional.

I read about the great service you've gotten when parts break, fall apart, etc.

I pick GLOCK because after carry one every day for over a decade as a LEO, qualifying and never having a FTF, and target shooting with it with no problems, I've never needed a part or factory assistance.

To me that is the best reason to praise a product or company.

I LOVE CZ, I've had nothing but tremendous success with them, and their quite the value for my money.

Great luck with Dillon, bought a SDB used on ebay, they sent me a brand new powder measure assembly. The priming unit doesn't work on it, but I'd feel guilty about getting more free stuff considering how little I payed for my press.

The technical line for Sierra Bullets is great, I've called them a few times with some dumb and a couple of pretty technical questions. They were very patient with me, it was great.

I stopped by X-Treme Bullet's factory on my way to Carson City. They were loading a truck, guy got off his forklift to sell me 1,000 147grain 9mm bullets and was very pleasant about it all. I like that!

The ones I avoid:

Colt- It would take a miracle for me to ever buy anything from Colt again, after my nightmare with my totally unshootable Combat Commander and how their warranty department turned it from a pretty paperweight into a scratched up one, that still rarely made it through a single magazine without some sort of issue.

Kimber- A friend's continuing saga of trying to fix his overpriced 1911 has totally turned me off to them. I don't have any use for overpriced 1911's, no matter how pretty they are.

Baer- Same nonsense as above, but they have made some progress in making his overpriced 1911 into a somewhat functioning weapon, that if held JUST right, with an iron grip, will run a little. Most of the time. With FMJ ammo. With HP stuff, forget it.

The ones I like:

CZ-never a problem, and I shouldn't have sold my CZ-75B.

Beretta- never any problems, and I would have, and did, trust my life to the guns they made.

EAA-People say bad things about them, but I never have had any issues and their guns all seem to be great. I ordered a couple of parts and they showed up quickly and while not cheap, were not insanely priced like some importers do their parts.

Kel-Tec, they make all kinds of neat, original guns at reasonable prices. Like the SUB-2000 or the SU-16 or the little P3AT.

Robinson Arms, great company great support, great warranty

RCBS, awesome support, and warranty.

They're the two that I've had dealings with on minor things, that have seriously impressed me with their customer service, above and beyond just getting my money in the first place.

Vector Arms. They build an excellent Uzi clone. Mine is very reliable and accurate.

CZ. Best value .22 rifles out there. And they make outstanding 9mm automatics.

Smith and Wesson of course...but I am biased.

I love them all!

I suppose Aim Surplus and Midway would be near the top of the list though. :)

When I think of a gun company, Remington Arms Corp always is the first that comes to mind. I like their products but have never had the need to use their customer service. I really like their wall paper selection available on their web site. I look at one of their photos every single day. It says Remington, Remington, Remington..... :)

I guess my next would have to be Smith & Wesson. The name clearly stands for QUALITY and they earned it. It would have been Colt, but they stopped making DA revolvers, so I don't buy much "Colt" these days.

Ruger
Browning
Glock

RCBS
Hornady

Midway

CDNN--but the high shipping has turned me off lately.

Scheel's--regional retailer--I always find good deals in there.

AND Walmart--for ammo.

I have great personal experience with MidwayUSA, CDNN, Dillon, sinclair, RCBS, and Steyr. Bad with Sig/Blaser-usa
