I see ads by FTF on Gunbroker and was wondering if anybody had experience with them. Good or bad?

Misleading adds, junk dealers.........................what more do you want to know.

Failure To Fire. Do you want to buy from a company named that?

I've heard negative reports from other buyers. My experience with them has been good. Sometimes a little slow.

The uppers they advertise on GunBroker as "Bushmaster" are not Bushmaster. I'd guess that not a single part is Bushmaster.

I believe they're RRA aren't they?

NO! Don't fall for this guy's bullshit. He swore to me up and down that his parts were all bushmaster. After I got them I called him on it, and wrote him a ripping pissed email. He wrote back and said "Sorry the parts I sent you were RRA" I wrote back, "I am not that stupid, I know for a fact these are not RRA or Bushmaster parts." He wrote back, "Oh you're right, the parts I sent YOU were FN." They weren't FN but it wasn't worth my time.

Don't deal with this douchebag. Steer clear of Jack's Black Rifle Shop on gunbroker also, I had similar problems with him.

Same deal. He was advertising Rock River uppers for sale, at a really good price. So I bought 2 from him. When they got here, the barrels were marked "M1S". When I contacted him he told me that the upper reciever was Rock River, but the barrel and bolt weren't.
To his credit, he changed the description in his ad to something like "Custom shop AR15 complete upper, RRA parts" or something like that after I talked to him about it. this was a little under a year ago.

FTF, what MONGO said +20. I bought what I thought was a BM LPK, but the bolt catch clearly had the M1S CAGE code on it (out of spec small hole, and spring pins instead of roll pins, too!). Called him out on it, and he basically said "EAT IT". Reported him to PayPal and GunBroker. Nuff said.

Jack I've never had a problem from in over two years worth of orders. Always got what I bought and paid for, quick, too!

I'm sure it wasn't done on purpose... Jack has always treated me right and has never tried to get over on me either... In the past a couple buddies of mine had a few problems with parts that they purchased from him but both times he made it right... And never was it do to false advertising... The problems they had were an out of spec upper receiver and a loose barrel nut on a complete upper...

Now lets get to what kind of guy/businessman Jack is...

The out of spec receiver wasn't discovered as being out of spec for at least 10 months after it was purchased... Jack replaced it for free, no questions asked, just an apology is all he had to say...

The loose barrel nut was discovered 6 months after it was purchased and after disassembling it I had noticed the extension pin alignment slot was a little damaged and so was the nipple end of the gas tube... Jack replaced the receiver and gas tube for free, no questions asked, just an apology is all he had to say...

Myself and others I know have spent thousands of $$$ buying parts from Jack and these are the only two things that had ever went wrong... Jack, like any decent parts dealer, gets a few bad parts now and then that ends up being passed along to their customers, but its not done intentionally...

For those people that frequent gunbroker.com, go look at Jacks feedback and then look at FTF's feedback, you will then believe everything I just said...

Sorry jfk for the small hijacking of your thread, Just had to let everyone know a little about Jacks character so people don't think hes a bad guy...

I'm betting it's NOT a Bushmaster...

Interesting.

I had heard he was selling RRA instead of bushy, I guess it was neither


any complaints concerning the uppers?

I would never buy anything from a company named FTF (Fail To Fire). Same reason I won't buy a KIA (Killed In Action)
