I never liked his prices, but he's got the Prvi Partizan 556 at 209/1000$ shipped.

Yet I hear rumblings over the web about recent no-no's.

Whats the deal?
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 6:13:30 AM EDT
I have bought at least four different times from him and had zero problems. I have spoken with him on the phone and he has been courteous and friendly. Your mileage may vary.

I heard he once killed a man for snoring too loud.

I have had close to ten (maybe ten or eleven, I can't remember) deals with Eric and the biggest hiccup I have had is that he didn't put a magnet in my order a couple times.

I probably dealt with him on ammo purchases a half a dozen times in the last few years with zero problems. However, given the growing number of threads detailing unsavory business practices lately I will likely not be dealing with him in the future. I would prefer to spend my money with someone trustworthy. YMMV

That was in Reno. He did it just to watch him die.

I haven't ordered from him since 2001. But, every order was processed correctly and delivered quickly.
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 6:45:10 AM EDT
Put in several orders and I never had problems with him.
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 6:52:48 AM EDT
Never had any probs, YMMV.

can't beat that ammo price, but ther are other options.
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 7:03:36 AM EDT
They sold me some shitty ammo once, but they were willing to take it back.

I've never had a serious problem with them.
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 7:04:28 AM EDT
His prices are a bit on the steep side for me
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 7:10:27 AM EDT
I just bought some of the Wolf (Serb) M193. No problems, fast shipping. I'd recommend the Ammoman.
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 7:13:19 AM EDT
He better be. I bought like $350 worth of stuff and tried to get on on the XM193 sale that they had for like one day. But I dont think I did.
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 7:14:57 AM EDT
In the 8 years I've been dealing with Eric I've never had a problem.

YMMV
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 7:16:28 AM EDT
I bought from him a couple of weeks ago. No problem.

Link Posted: 3/24/2006 7:22:08 AM EDT
Ammoman has always worked well for me, but I haven't bought in a few months. Had to get that special sealed 5.56mm.
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 7:25:44 AM EDT
Some time ago I purchased a case of surplus .308 that he advertised as being packed in sealed battlepacks. What I actually received was packed in cardboard boxes. I was a little disappointed, but I wasn't upset. I figured that mistakes happen, and that they may not be able to look inside every single case to verify how the ammunition is packed. Besides, the ammo seemed to be otherwise okay.

I wrote him a short email explaining what had happened. I didn't complain, nor did I ask for a refund or any adjustment. I just suggested that he might want to update the item description on his web site so that other customers would accurately know ahead of time that they could get ammo packed in either battlepacks or cardboard boxes.

He did acknowledge my email, but he never updated the site and continued to advertise that the .308 was packed in battlepacks even though he knew at least some of it wasn't.

I would not say that he is being fraudulent, but based on my own experience and what others report, he does seem to be establishing a pattern of being less than completely forthright. I think from now on I will purchase from other suppliers who accurately describe their products. His prices aren't that good anyway.
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 7:33:53 AM EDT
never a problem for me, but what was posted above does seem odd.

Link Posted: 3/24/2006 7:35:06 AM EDT
I have bought many k's of various ammo from him in the past with absolutely no problems. However, with some of the things happening with him recently I think I will sit back and watch for a while. I can forgive arrogance in as long as the product is there, but I can't (won't) forgive dishonesty. The way he is dealing with the SKS debacle is disturbing to say the least. Trust is always the hardest thing to win and the easiest thing to lose. Eric is going to have to give a full refund on the SKS and an apology to regain my trust, but I don't see that happening.

My answer to your question is that he has been trustworthy in the past, but recent events show that he is not trustworthy now. Eric, unless you do the right thing soon you have lost my business for good.
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 7:36:14 AM EDT
I have bought from him several times with no problem. The prices look a bit high until you factor in shipping from alternate sources, then he is generally in line with others.

My *impression* is that he will never deliberately try to mislead or in any way screw you, but if you do have problems he may not be as helpful as you might like, and if you push too hard he will push back harder.

I *suspect* that he has, over the years, had to deal with a lot of dumb-ass customers and ended up making losses on very low margin deals and has just had enough. If this is the case, and if Eric is reading this I would really suggest that he deleguate the after sales service to someone not quite so burned out by it -- these are really the ONLY complaints you ever hear, but they are loud enough to probably be damaging his business, and that is not good for Eric, or for any of us.

I've ordered a few times, no problems. Other then the UPS people bitching about the weight.

I've had a few dealings with him over the years, with no problems. However, I'll skip giving him any of my money. I always thought he had an attitude, and it got worse with time. Seeing recent events has convinced me I should find someone else to spend my money with.

AMMOMAN SHOULD BE BANNED FROM CIVILIAN USE!

(which is the highest complement that I can give)

Some retard had issues with him, but anyone who would buy an SKS should stick to buying clear mags at the gun show or some shit.

I kinda feel bad for this guy,his inattention here,or lack of commuication in these threads is killing him.

NO, DO NOT BUY FROM HIM HE IS A THEIF AND AN ASSHOLE



Quit pussyfooting around and tell us how you really feel.....


and while you are at it, give us the reason that you feel this way...
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 9:09:25 AM EDT
I have ordered from him numerous times and everything went perfect.
i also met the guy on a cruise in the caribean(pureley random)
he has a slight attitude, but so would i if i had to deal with some of you guys
if this werre ebay, i would say he still has a 95%+ rateing, and that is pretty damn good considering some people willl never be happy no matter what kind of service they recieve.
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 9:10:56 AM EDT
He opted to settle it with a lawyer. - as reported by staff and involved parties.
The thread is in "feedback" I think.

Link Posted: 3/24/2006 9:26:51 AM EDT
If you've done as many transactions as he has, you are bound to get a few bad ones. I'm sorry that you had such a bad experience sherrick13. I have had nothing but top-notch service from Eric. I have not ordered from him recently as I have found some cheper sources, but typically order from him at least once a year.

Same here.
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 10:17:55 AM EDT
I don't like the way he handled the Indian .308 deal. Other dealers pulled it while he continued to sell it. The fact he offered a refund is meaningless, because the cost of shipping it back is prohibitive. He should have pulled it like all the other dealers.

I also don't like the way he described the XM193 when it first came out. We all now know it was rejects, but he advertised it as first rate. I have a difficult time believing he didn't know what it was when he first ordered it.

Depends is "PRVI PARTISAN" ammo any good?

Never seen any never shot any, but if its mil spec NATO and clean firing i'd shoot it.

As for Ammoman, never bought there.
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 10:43:03 AM EDT
While I have purchased from him in the past, never again.

If he treats the members here like shit when they have a problem he has issues.......................

PP is pretty much top of the line manufacturer. I don't thinkt he final verdict is out on this particular ammo though.
