New to AR 15. That is, both the site and the rifle.

V Match 24 inch barrel.

Anyone familiar with R Guns?

Thanks

Big hoopla a few years ago over R Guns. Ask/email some of the mods, staff...any of the ol' boys who might know the details.

I purchased mags from them and found them lacking in customer service. I did get the mags. They do not have a good reputation on this board as far as I know. TT

Ah, the monthly RGUNS thread...... Greets & Welcome mildbill39! ~ s0ulzer0

I've don business with them a couple of times. Just be really specific about what you want and ask clearly if they have it in stock.. If they don't don't backorder it. It will take years to get your order if it is baaclordered 9apparenntly). Like I said, ordered from them twice with no problems. they just aren't personable nor forthcoming with information. Just remeber to be clear, concise, and ask specific questions.

We should just make a Nailed Thread for this question. RGUNS is bad news. Do business with RGUNS and you will probably regret it as many ar-folks before you have regreted it.

Why bother ???? Might as well take your ar, aim it at your foot, close your eyes, and see if you hit your toe. Why take the chance. Well, if you like gambling, then RGUNS could be cheaper than a trip to Vegas I suppose. [spank]

Thank you for responding. Kinda had a suspicion. This is a great site. Can't stay away. Much good info. Got my first gun in 1953. Reloading for 28 years. This AR thing is about as much fun as anything.

Check the tread in magazines I innocently started. Then do a search.
Link Posted: 6/28/2003 5:07:21 AM EDT
R Guns has a bad rap here, probably well-deserved, however I have purcased items from them on several occasions with no problems whatsoever. What I did do was to be certain (or as certain as you can be talking with some jimoke on the phone) that the item I wanted was in stock and available for immediate shipment; which isn't a bad idea regardless of who you're dealing with.
Link Posted: 6/28/2003 5:26:33 AM EDT
I WILL NEVER ORDER FROM R GUNS EVER AGAIN.I DON'T SEE HOW THEY STAY IN BUSINESS ,ON HOW THEY TREAT CUSTOMERS ALONE!!!!!!!! WD
Link Posted: 6/28/2003 7:57:02 AM EDT
Hve never ordered from them,never will,but for some reason I always read the Rguns threads. [ROFL]
Link Posted: 6/28/2003 8:24:45 AM EDT
They probably stay in business because of that calendar they sell. :) IBTL!

Bad rap is not just from one person. They have pissed off plenty. Including me. Probably pretty hard to screw up a NIB rifle FWIW, but if anyone could do it, it would be good ol' Kiss My Ass. He IS the best comedian on the gunboards, though. Also, hide your mommies, he has a thing for them.

My time wasted with them was over a order for there M1 carbine mags. I ordered a small batch of about $60 .I wasn't told they was out when I ordered.My CC was hit ammediately. 2 months went by and a buddy who teamed up with me on the purchased asked about the mags. I had forgoten about them. I called and they said out of stock,will be in stock about 2 weeks.Cool.Well fastforward 4 months later.Thats 6months total.Remember my CC had been hit the day I ordered.I called and asked what seemed to be the problem?I wasn't rude but wasn't being a push over either. I said if you can't send my ordered mags this week refund my money.The guy cussed at me and thats the end of my story. Im not an ahole who think people should jump through hoops for me. Im very understanding ...But don't charge me for something you don't know if youll ever get.Ask me what I think about R-Guns....I got my money back, WarDawg

Yes, witch hunt. Some people dont need to know didly but when a AR15er say something,they stick together like a certain type of people at rioting in LA. Look at the guy who first said PFC jessica lynch was no hero and was media hype, He received the wich hunt. And Ha Ha he was right. GG

There is a certain amount of truth to that. I have been to their shop. It is a little place in a small strip of stores. The place was clean and well organized. The two guys working we not friendly; more like indifferent to my presence. I did notice that their stripped Colt receivers looked like they had been refinished to the point where the Colt logo was unrecognizable. I know I would be pissed if I ordered one and received what they were selling. Other than that is seemed to be an average operation.
Link Posted: 6/29/2003 12:46:00 PM EDT
I ordered some mags from them about a year ago. Never got the mags, but they never charged my credit card either. I figure they'll get around to processing the order after the AWB sunsets and mags become cheap and plentyful again. OK. I know it's not really going to go away, but it's nice to pretend now and then.
Link Posted: 6/29/2003 7:25:47 PM EDT
I ordered some AR mags from them and rec'd them with no problems.

Trust me, It aint a witch hunt, its most of our dealings have been not so good. So I must join on the side of saying NO TO RGUNS

Hummm.. I ordered three stripped Colt Lowers from R-Guns about 6 months ago. They all came sealed in a plastic bag with Colt logo, stock number, and bar code. All brand new and perfect without so much as the slightest scratch or ding. I own 20+ Colt's and the lowers I received from R-Guns look just as good if not better than any of them. Have you actually ever seen a Colt lower before? While i'm not a "QCMGR", i'll be damned if I can see a problem with them. [img]www.armscenter.com/xm777/DSCN0147.jpg[/img] [img]www.armscenter.com/xm777/DSCN0149.jpg[/img] [added] Drats, it looks like I did get a reject. I just noticed that one of the lowers is marked "Safe Semi" rather than "Safe Fire" like it is supposed to be. {Sigh}, I guess Colt needs a new "QCMGR".

I havent read the whole thread, but so long as it stays civil and sticks to the point, no one is locking this. Though I must admit, I have seen few R-Gun posts that have remained civil and stuck to the point...

Just because somebody sells a decent lower doesn't prove anything. Does this mean RGUNS gave it a spit shine for you after it came from Colt? The mags I bought from them looked like served a usefull life in 'Nam but where advertised "as new." Uh-huh.

No, what I saw was the type of dubious quality that R-Guns in known for. Like selling refinished magazines as new. No, Potsy, it is definitely R-Guns work. Now what's with the attitude. I reported what I saw. If you have had good luck I can accept that. The lowers I saw did not look as nice as yours. Maybe it was an aberration. Or maybe you are a shill for R-Guns. If you were a "QCMGR" you would notice the porosity of the R-Guns refinish. Every Colt I have has a smooth finish. Or better put, a factory finish. The parts I saw looked worse. Like I said, the Pony was completely eroded.

Gonna have to agree with you new-arguy. Last time I checked this was a discussion board and every member had the right to express/post his own experiences and opinions. Make you wonder why some individuals are so hostile and resort to name calling and accusations when an opposing opinion is expressed. If you do not want any responses to your posts, why bother posting them?
