Dillion quality products and fantastic customer service.
I own 2 Dan Wessons, which have been great. I had a couple of questions after buying my first one and the rep I spoke to took his time in answering my questions and I never felt rushed, which was refreshing.
I picked up a Wilson Combat EDC X9 a little while ago. I had the same experience with the rep I spoke to as I did with Dan Wesson, that they wanted to make sure all my questions were answered and that I was happy with their products and service.
1) Midway USA
2) Palmetto State Armory
3) Primary Arms
4) Optics Planet
5) CDNN (you have to understand what this site is and judge accordingly)
Primary Arms - good deals on AR parts
Midway USA - parts for my non-tactical guns
Brownells - parts and technical support for those parts.
Rifle Supply - Glock mags and parts. great bunch of guys
Glock Store - Glock parts
There are others but these are my “Go to” suppliers.
Sig-Sauer, in Eckernforde Germany. P series handguns.
Walther: my P99 AS.
CZUB: CZ 'PCR' 9mm etc.
Czech Small Arms: VZ-58 rifle in 7.62x39 or 5.56. (only Looks like that "Other Rifle").
Anderson Rifles and Ruger both get nods as well for going out of their ways to provide a solid product at a very reasonable price.
I like that you put service in front of deals. I have been in so many stores where to cut corners they hire second rate sales/customer service people so they can pay second rate salaries. It's bothersome when I go into a business and ask questions only to discover that the people "assisting" me know less than I do about a particular thing. Not that I'm an all over expert, but I'm asking questions because I don't know the answer and apparently neither does anyone on their sales force.
I like a good deal as much as the next person, but I will pay a few extra dollars to have someone with knowledge and customer service ability assist me.
I will elaborate just a tad on a couple of the LGS, online is pretty much straight CS and it generally tends to be less pressured and not aggressive from the sites I've used.
Green Top is pretty well known if you're on the east coast. There staff is friendly and fairly knowledgeable. The lack of sales pressure is what's beautiful. You will be asked every few minutes by a different person if you're doing ok if you're looking at guns anywhere in the store. But if you tell them you're just browsing the sales folks acknowledge and move on.
Dances is a much smaller store and while a great place the thing that kind of just bugs me is there sales folks that are trying to sell to current or potential CCW customers. They tend to say things that really shouldn't be said or are just inaccurate. I dont think they do it intentionally I just think there is a overwhelming lack of info in regards to CCW and use of force. Aside from that they seem to be good folk.
The online stores I've dealt with it's all about service, knowledge of parts being discussed and how prompt I receive them. In all cases the sites I mentioned have been nothing less then adequate and most more than so.
So theres my "expansion" on my previous post.
Barrett - doesn't sell rifles to LE where private citizens can't have it
Geissele - see above
Vortex - that warranty
Rural King - the right stand
Academy Sports - still displays and sells regular AR's and the like
Brownells, great retailer. SGAmmo. Target Sports USA.
Magpul - their CO airlift and moving production thing and general products and service
Cheaper than dirt
I could go on but the UPS driver already hates my guts
And of course Ruger
