haha! I went for 5K... gotta make up for the shipping cost, ya know...
I have 5k LRP but have not used any from this batch.
I did the pre-order for 5k SPP given this is where I project running out first (more than a year from now).
50K are $3000 at this site https://www.armadilloarms.com/
I kept hearing about how some people said they were " a little difficult to seat"...
so I thought, well, maybe I'll pass for now...
..."A little difficult to seat."...
"Rifle Primer"....not large, not small, just "Rifle"...
...yeah, I'm going with the Serbians...
Given the circumstances surrounding current ammo costs such as $0.60/round + on handgun Ammo if one can find it. $0.0615 / primer doesn’t seem bad at all temporarily.
How many of you would buy 1,000 rounds of 9mm for $175 right now?
Regardless of Qty, 1K, 5K, 50K price is .06 a primer. I'm not sure if it was a website malfunction that displayed $4,000 for 50K primers, or an old main brain malfunction. If I was a betting man, I'd wager old man brain malfunction. Sorry 'bout that.
That is probably what these new guys are paying for them and then marking them up almost 200% to sell to ya'll. But hey, $60.00 a brick + shipping/hazmat is still better than gb.
Thanks....This made me laugh, was hilarious. My wifes even laughing now, and she wasn't laughing when I took a risk and bought 5k spp. So I guess thanks twice.
Northfork’s website lists their street address as 104 W. Magnolia Ave. I can find a Magnolia “Street” but no “Avenue”. Yes, Google can make mistakes and so can business’s websites.
So, I can’t wait to see when the last “international border is crossed” and you all get your stuff.
Thereafter, it will be loaded on an Italian container ship along with crates of Chianti, Parmesano Romano, and stolen Ferraris.
Won’t be long now.
To me, as well as others, this is a risk free transaction. If it doesn't pan out I simply file a dispute with Visa and the money is returned to me and charged back to the vendor. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Northfork would be in a world of hurt if they intended to defraud. Right off the bat I can think of interstate wire fraud, https://www.justice.gov/archives/jm/criminal-resource-manual-941-18-usc-1343-elements-wire-fraud.
FWIW, yesterday I sent a USPS Money Order to a guy in Elmira NY for a purchase off Gunbroker. If he doesn't deliver, I don't have a lot of recourse.
I don't want to come off as being a cheerleader for Northfork Tactical, I've had several email exchanges, they seem legitimate. I've had no transactions with them. To me, it's worth the risk. I don't find the price unreasonable. We're all adults here, you'll make what's decision is best for you.
Here's another preorder, but this is small rifle.
Back when I was in government contracting one of the common scams in the IT world was for a foreign group to buy a struggling IT distribution/reseller business in the US on the cheap and then run the company for a short time legitimately. They would negotiate new credit lines with all sorts of vendors pointing to the long history of the company and their great new plans to expand and grow. After a short period of time, they would then execute their exit strategy usually at the busiest time. In most cases this was government year end (September) or Christmas.
They would run up all of their lines of credit to the max, Take payment from as many customers as possible. They would use shipping excuses to delay as long as possible to make sure they maximized the volume with their customers. They would then drain the bank accounts and ship all of the purchased products to an overseas shell company to resell outside the US.
I have to admit when I first read this thread this is what flashed into my head. I guess this shows how desperate we are for primers that despite the risk we still pulled the trigger to order these.
How do you order these? I didn’t see a way nor a price.
If the answer is near the “hopefully by..” date, they might want to put that into consideration as to why complete 100% upfront payment is demanded vs a deposit, even a substantial one to prevent people from backing out even if there are lower priced alternatives by then.
It’s easiest to catch fish, when they are in a feeding frenzy.
Sorry bout that. I was looking at their 9MM ammo and they have an "add to cart" there. Here's the phone number I saw on their website.
UNIS GINEX SMALL RIFLE PRIMERS
For greater volumes than 100,000 call at (800) 233-6381 for Pricing
At $60/1000 the price is much better than anything I can find and I'm a big believer in the saying that anything that sounds too good to be true probably is a scam. If I should lose my money I'll chalk it up to tuition in the school of hard knocks. I'm willing to roll the dice, but I'll keep the stakes low.
