Are these guys legit? They show a surprising quantity of items "in stock". Pricing is very attractive as well. Anyone have any feedback on these guys? Quality?

There are mixed reviews. They seem to be a small operation. I have a number of parts on order with them. Some people have said that they are quick to reply to problems and very eager to please. Others have told horror stories about how they never answer the phone, never reply to emails, and are slow to respond to quality control issues.

I myself am just being patient. They advertise a 20-30 day lead time for in stock orders. I am just now getting into the 20 day area. I did shoot them a late night email to ask if orders that were placed on different days (consecutive) would ship together or separately.

They sent me an email back by 0900 the next morning saying that they would do their best to ship the orders together.

So far I am encouraged. Everyone seems to be swamped so I will avoid condemning/recommending them until I have the parts in hand.

Before the panic I bought a stripped upper from them and received it within a week or two. I doubt their stock is real time. As long as you are willing to wait a bit for everything to show up I wouldn't have a problem ordering from them.

Which upper did you order? How does it look/function?

I have an A3 flat top and a SS 16" HBar on order from them. Should be shipping pretty soon. I hope.

I also have read mostly good reviews so I ordered. I placed a order on 1-20-13 for some parts I need to finish my build for items that all showed in stock. I would like to also hear from others that have ordered and how many days it is really taking. I was really hopping to not have to wait another 10-20 days but I guess everyone is this busy.

I ordered 2 complete "in-stock" uppers on 1.1.13. They have not responded to my email which I sen a few days ago. I imagine they pick and choose which emails to respond to.

I've read a couple people saying that they may in fact have the uppers and barrels in stock but that the delay may be the BCGs. Either way, it would be nice to hear something from them.

Dont get in a hurry and you will be very pleased with Red X products. I have had 2 complete uppers from them that worked flawlessly. I ordered an upper and a stock on 12/18, received the stock a couple weeks ago, but just got invoiced for the upper that was ordered on 12/18....
I also still have a order from 12/21 that has shown no progress but I know they will eventually get to it....

They make some very nice stuff...

I like hearing positive feedback for sure. I ordered a a3 upper and a barrel and couple other little things. So if they are out of the bcg that will not hold up my order since I didn't order one I already got one. So maybe the guys waiting on complete upper assemblies will be held up longer and for me maybe I get bumped up.

I've seen their product at the local gun shows and it looks good.
