    Howdy folks. I'm trying to get the email contact for the bubbas at classicarms.us

    Could someone PM it to me?

    Has anyone done business with them and would you do business with them again?

    Apparently they hate e-mail. I faxed them twice asking for an e-mail reply and never got one. I can't discuss gun purchases at the office and they do not list weekend hours so phone contact is generally out of the question for me.

    Too bad for them, I bought my stuff elsewhere.

    I bought a bunch of mags and some accessories from them a few years back. Great deal on the mags and good prices on everything else, quick service too. I'd buy from them again.

    Well that's just poopy. I can't really call them. I only have so many minutes on my phone cards and I want to use every one of them to talk to Mrs. Aaryq and the Mini-Aaryqs...The fam takes priority over the firepower...

    I guess I'll snail mail them. I'm trying to get everything set up prior to coming home so when I take the post-deployment leave, all of my ducks will be in a row.

    They HATE email- they much prefer phone contact.

    I have done business with them before, and they are good folks to work with.

    Best way to contact them is by phone. Smaller outfits can not handle the amount of email they receive so it takes them a long time to sort through it. I bought firearm arms through them and, highly recommend them to anyone.

    I have bought some things from them and would gladly do it again..they hate email becuase its usually just a few people working there and they dont have time to fiddle with it. I would gladly buy from them again.

    I've done business with them and would not hesitate to do more , as I see things I want . Haven't had a single issue with what I've received . Of course , for me , I always just give them a call to hash out what I want and within a few days the brown truck of joy shows up with my goods . [​IMG]

    Why not write everything down you're interested in and have Mrs. Aaryq call them sometime when she's free? That would save your minutes and I'm sure the call would be cheaper for her than you.

    Empire Arms is just the opposite. They prefer E-mail and hate phone calls, they are actually smaller than Classic Arms from what I understand.

    I wouldn't do business with a company that doesn't answer email in a prompt manner.

    This is the 21st frickin' century.

    Classic is a good company, they just have their own goals and play by their own rules. Reading the website, it seems to be a family business that does the best they can with what they've got, mixed in with a softball team, youth group and a warehouse without AC.

    The guy running it had a pic up once of his computer, it was an EMachine with a big cup sitting on the ejected cd tray (and a life-size John Wayne poster in the background). :D

    I would much rather deal with these kind people than what Century's got answering the phones.

    God bless them and patiently give them a little business and courtesy.

    Things have always been a little different in Mayberry.

    Besides who wants to read a bunch of e-mail from you gun nuts?

    "Dear Vendor,

    I want writing to inquire as to the exact date, hour, and minute that my two (2) Eastern Polish, modified Hungarian AK-47, the most awesomest weapon in the universe because a 14 year old said so on a gun geek board, magazines will be shipped and the name of the driver which will take them to my house and how many layers of bubble wrap will you use around this vital cargo?

    As well, be advised that if there is the slightest hint of rust I will go on the Errornet, specifically The Bear/Puma Road, and whine about how I was ripped off by you blood-sucking vendors and your vaporware.

    Sincerely, from my mom's basement,

    I. Rant Freely"

    Reading e-mail like that all day from you gun nuts whimpering about your two flipping mags will get you out of e-mail in a hurry.:D

    I've bought from them. Good to deal with, product shipped the same day. I was really surprised about that since I ordered two or three days before Christmas.

    Agreed. I gave them a chance. Except for the hard chrome stuff, everything they sell is available elsewhere for comparable prices. AIM Surplus, Century, SOG, and Sarco have no problem with e-mail.
