All of the site sponsors are great.
And NS Defense is great too.
Sucks Ayan is out. Heres a story about why Ayan was the best. Ive never told it before.
Years back we had this same exact thread. It always pops up after a time. Well, Ive ordered from pretty much every dealer so I listed all my experiences with each and every one.
When I got to boltcarrier I casually mentioned shipping was a bit high. Not high enough that I didnt order, but it was a flat rate price for a small item.
Within less than 24 hours I get an IM from Ayan, saying hes using another carrier as a cheaper option and offered to refund my shipping cost in full. I politely declined of course because it wasnt a big deal, and I was and still am satisfied with the total price. He then sends me back another IM thanking me for the business and a code for free shipping on my next order.
He did this all in private. Not public trying to impress anyone. Just being a good dude.
So if you new guys ever wonder why we bring him up so often, years after he has closed shop. Thats why.
