I just logged on to look at something and noticed they changed the site, so far it looks nice!

ETA - WOW, it is REALLY nice!

The search function is much improved, and I love the new way it lists items. Shows in stock status, etc.

Very, very nice.

Good, cause searching the old site SUCKED big time. You always got 50 unrelated items it seemed. Very glad to see this.

the old search MANY times prevented me from buying from them.

Going to check the new one out now....

Hmmm, did they integrate the Sinclair products? What about reloading components?

And the MBUS still isn't on the site.

Do you we can get the Brownell's people to redo the new EE site?







I keed, I keed.

...and it works with Firefox! I always had to switch over to IE to seach/order/etc.

Much better than Midways POS site now. This search actually works!! If only they carried reloading stuff I wouldn't ever order from Midway again.

holy shit I can actually find stuff.

I love their selection of AR plumbing tools.

Looks to be free of the egregious Flash bullshit that infected Midway.

How are the prices there? I always thought Brownells was batsh!t crazy on pricing.

I have a C&R FFL so I get dealer pricing which cannot be touched. I love Brownell's. I had no idea backorders ship free so I used to not spend as much there. Now I'm going to be spending much more money with them (already started a few months ago).

I tried to order something this morning, went like this:

Seach;' error
Search; - error
Search: success
Change number of results per page: error
Change sort order: error

After 30 minutes of errors, I still couldn't find what I just saw last week, so I said fuck-it and ordered it from midway.

+1. Too much chaff. The only place I have found where the paper catalog is faster and easier to search than the internet site.

My only bitch is that dealer pricing does not always show when browsing categories.

New site is awesome, much better than the old one. Big improvement!
Link Posted: 6/17/2009 10:32:14 AM EST
Much better, but you know what I wish they'd implement? The ability to quickly see if something on your favorites list is IN STOCK, without having to click through to the item's page.
Link Posted: 6/17/2009 10:34:51 AM EST
Better than the old one. Could still use some work...
Link Posted: 6/17/2009 10:58:28 AM EST
Looks like if I wait more than 5 or 10 minutes to go to the next page of a search, it gives an error.
