    I found something that’s a good deal on www.riflecases.com,

    But I’m scared to buy it because it says all over it that it’s affiliated with galatiinternational.com.

    But on the galatiinternational.com website I see no mention of it.
    And it’s not as professional a site as galatiinternational.com

    It seems kind of fishy.



    Have any of you guys done business with them?


    thanks.

    well, I just clicked your link to riflecases, and searched the optic secion for a Leupold scope. It opened a new window, with galatiinternational. So, I would say that they definatly have some sort of partnership, but to what degree, I don't know.

    Please tell me what you're looking for, and what type of deal you've found. I may know of something better for less.

    I'm lost. What is so frightening about being affiliated with Galati?

    Okay, so they are affiliated. What about that is terror inducing? Is there a dramatic scandal about Galati that I don't know about?

    I'm curious because a while back I bought a Galati bag from www.usarmorment.com at a smoking good price. I fished around for testimonials here, but ended up taking the leap and getting what I wanted. A good bag at a good price. But maybe I should think otherwise?

    It’s not that they said they were affiliated that scared me.
    It was that I could find nothing stating the affiliation on Galati’s website.

    It’s like if I make a website and said I was affiliated with Ruger, on every single page. Just because I say it doesn’t mean it’s true.



    But anyway, I called Galati and they confirmed they are affiliated with them.
    So I placed my order.

    Okay, I see what you mean, and I agree. I sometimes fear that a certain site, with unbelievable prices, may be passing off counterfeit copies of a brand name. That has been my concern with Galati and Leupold products on a couple of occasions. Both times, I actually called those manufacturers and asked them about the respective website/vendor.

    Scopes are big business for the counterfeit copies, i still see them on Ebay a fair bit. You get the ones that very subtly say they are the "equivalent" too.

    That's right. When in doubt, check it out.
