have you noticed the prices are at least 4 times fair market value?

90% of what they advertise they do not have. They take your order then go shopping at the same places elsewhere you could have done and drop ship. That is if you are lucky. Seems they run it like a Ponzi scheme. Last I heard, they are actually run out of an apartment and have a couple of "self-storage" units they use for a warehouse. If you order from them after hearing this, then you are a retard and deserve whatever crap they dish.

Just do not do it!

Prices are irrelevant if they charge you but don't ever deliver what you ordered.

I read all the horror stories AFTER I ordered from them. I payed too much, but after the lies, unreturned calls & emails, the product showed up as soon as I turned it over to my CC co.

Consider yourself very lucky. I would order from Botach before I would order anything from them. OTOH, I have made 18 orders from Botach without any problems.




Oh yeah, I'm very lucky. I had $500 on the line with them and they went out of their way for me. They did more than I would expect any company to do, let alone one with such a bad reputation.

Because they try to rip you off. They suck big time!!

This company should have been shut down by Dade County a long time ago. I was screwed big time until American Express fraud division came to my rescue.

After i compared the prices they have, i found them to be terrible. They charge $30 for an ak sight adjustment tool that we can get anywhere else for ten. I wrote them an email asking why they think they can do this, and it was a fairly polite email-this is the response i got back:

WE don't really care what people say or what you think. Thanks for the email, have a nice day

Is this the place where the old website had some older skanky looking snizz posing in bikinis and the guns? I took it that she was the owner/part owner or something?

Before I buy from anyone I take the time to look them up on the Better Business Bureau and from ripoffreport.com.

I use one credit card for all web purches and I keep a very close eye on it.

damn they suck. took them over a month to send me a simple scope mount for my old AR

A friend of mine refused to heed multiple warnings and ordered from them anyway.
He ordered two Polish kits from them about a year ago, Took them forever to ship and He ended up with two of the biggest POS kits I've ever seen.
He's wishing he had listened now.
