Just got the latest Bible of Gun Parts/Accessories-The Brownells Catalog...

You'll never guess what they are advertising for sale? Well maybe from the subject line.

I haven't called them yet to check availability or to find out the detials. I'll let you know what I find out.

Could this sight be getting closer to release?

$550 - full retail. Big surprise :) I love the Brownell's catalog and their shipping charges are great but everything I've ever looked at in their catalog is overpriced (compared to other vendors) or priced at retail.

Armalite's got 'em for sale too.

They've been in Brownells for almost a year. Looks like everyone was counting on Trijicon delivering them in a timely manner. I'll stick to my EO TECHS...

Got any suggestions? I tried emailing brownells and sweet talking my way into the dealer pricing, but I go nowhere. I basically told them the truth, I want to do more business with them but I just can't justify it when their prices are so high. Any tips are appreciated. Maybe I should just call and pretend I am a new customer? (a new gunsmith that is). Thanks, --Dan

Get yourself a C&R license. The $30 you spend will easily be recouped by the discounts. You will get a discount at Midway as well with your C&R.

Best $30 investment you can spend in the gun world.

What is a C&R license?

Curios & Relics, license. I have one, didn't know I can get discounts at Brownells and such...well now I know.

If you're a business owner that'll get you some discounts too, that's how I got mine [:)]

Yes, and I don't think they are very particular about the business being in the gun industry either - all you need is a valid tax id #. I receive my discount through my C&R, however. As mentioned, it isn't too hard to get their "dealer" prices. I just wish they'd give discount on their tools. Rocko

Here are the list of questions asked when applying for the dealer discount. Presumably, a "yes" to any one qualifies for the discount: -Do you have an FFL? (If yes, FFL must be on file at Brownells) -Do you have a Sales Tax Number? -Do you have a Resale Number? -Are you an armorer or contracting official for the military, police, federal or state agency,or other law enforcement agency? Badge Number or Department Name: -Are you an in-residence, full-time student at a college level Gunsmithing School? School Name: -Are you an Owner and/or Operator of an Allied Specialty business which doesn't require an FFL? Shop Name: -Are you full-time, active-duty with the Police Department, Sheriff's Department, or other Law Enforcement Agency? Badge Number or Department Name:
