It looks like a good site to me.
Put in the website here and then click the “analysis” button.
I always use this when buying online.
I’ve detected so many scam sites
You are quite welcome Sir,
I haven't been on.
My FIL has been having amputations on his feet.
Been working hard to help my wife and when I get a free moment, I'm at the range.
Good luck with all of it Gunny. Use that range time as a therapeutic treatment. It works for me and my son - he’s a retired Gunny too.
https://springfieldfirearmstore.com/ is a scam.

This site is excellent and when I did a chat with them they sent a copy of the chat to my email. Once I found they only accepted venmo, zelle, and paypal for payment I knew this site is a scamer.
As for money orders, I do all of my transactions on auction sites through USPS money orders. This does not mean you are a scamer.
I’ve also sent several money orders without issue. Generally, it has been to sellers who will also take a check though.
I see an overwhelming number of legit sellers stopped taking it altogether. Just wait till January.
1 had good reviews on ammoseek
2 had a secure link
3 fraud check sites didn't list it
4 company seemed to have a current FFL
5 Site specifics didn't raise any red flags
6 pricing was not too good to be true
But two weeks later no contact, no replies, no tracking, no shipment, no phone number tied to the company that answers
If a site says to use zelie, or western union, or paypal, or cash app DO NOT use it. Even some sites will take your card then say it won't process and direct you to a cash payment and then they stole your card info also.
I messed up and forgot paypal terms of no ammo or guns and used it, I cannot contact paypal to dispute because they won't cover it and will ban me after anyway.
So be careful online, or learn the hard way like I did
Some of us do have Zelle as an option when it's available through our NFI; we probably do around 5% of service transactions with Zelle through Wells Fargo. But if it's the only option, that's a red flag.
At the end of the day, Google is your friend. Scam sites are usually pretty easy to find complaints on.
