Seems they have some of our favorites at decent prices. They even claim to have Winchester Q3131 (which would be unusual).

Anybody order here recently? Do they actually have all these items in stock? Shipping cost and time? Service?

I ordered Beretta mag's (15 rd, teflon coated, police-trade in) from them. Price was good and I was pleased with the fast delivery and overall quality.

I buy alot of ammunition from them. They are dirt cheap on some things and sky high on others. I saw a used FN Fiven Seven in there for 599 or 699.

huh? This must have been left over from a few batches of crap Q3131 they had back in 1999 IIRC. Q ammo is first rate ammo worthy of combat usage.

No idea just did a google search of the term and saw that.

i know for a fact that the over pressure loads can happen with Q3131A loads as well. i had a case of it and was haveing a problem with it blowing primers so i sent it to Winchester for testing and they found it to be loaded to hot. the nice part is they sent me five cases (1000 rounds total) of their 64 grain powerpoint plus loads in exchange. this is like $800 of ammo in exchange for a case i paid under $200 for. just check each lot you get and if you have any problems just call Winchester and they WILL take care of you. if you do a search on Q3131 you will find a list of the bad lot numbers.

I'm very familiar with Q3131 and the supposed "issues" it had in some 1999 lots, in some rifles. I shot at least 2 cases of it (one of which was a 1999 lot) and never had a single malfunction, primer problem, or other issue.

I'm interested in this vendor.

What stuff? The Q3131? Strange that it would have FTF problems since it's sealed ammo.
