Anyone had any dealings with Anderson Mfg. in Hebron, Kentucky? Good, bad? They have some AR parts I'm interested in and I have family close by for a face to face pick up, so shipping isn't an issue. I'm told they make lowers for major mfgs - true or not - anyone know?

I've been wondering this my self. new gun shop near me pushs their lowers and has BCG's this make in stock

Anyone know??

They shill here every once in a while.

But are they worth it?

Personally I choose to give my business to people who don't use shady practices to get sales.

So for me no, they couldn't pay me to have their name on the side of my rifle.

First I've heard. Care to elaborate?

Good detective work on the VP of Sales.

one of my top 3 favorite threads of all time. Still can't believe he used his own name to shill.

I guess I missed all the hate for the company. I have four of their lowers done and all are great. I like their finish better than the PSA lowers. I have two more in the works now.

If the question is about the product and not the person/compnay, then my answer is that the product is a great value.

I have a one of their lowers (manufactured for another company) and it is 100% perfect.

Ha! I would never buy one of their products, based on their marketing ethics alone (see above linked thread). Even if they did come out with the next best thing, I still wouldn't. Shameful...

The thread was a good read though.

Edit: Too bad I wasted my glorious first post responding about those goons... Almost as shameful.

After reading this i went on to thier site just to check them out. Under there dealer section for my area they had businesses listed that i never heard of that are supposedly a few miles from me. They also had some listed that i know and dont sell guns. Must be real easy to become a dealer.

I did the same thing - dealers listed in my AO were non - stocking out of the basement dealers. No go for me - I'll stick with PSA.
