I went on Primary Arms web site today looking to purchase an Eotech. Big price increase, decided to pass. And the government says there is no inflation.

I just went to Primary Arms site after reading your post. He used to sell the XPS2 for $429. Now it's $479 and there's a $50 rebate. Strange. Everything I've read says what a stand up guy Marshall is so I wonder if Eotech told him his price was too low.

EoTech is notoriously touchy about advertised price.

He warned everyone that there would be a price increase.

Now that you mention it, wasn't that in Marsh's email?

Marshall is an absolute stand up guy. I guarantee he wouldn't raise his prices unless there was absolutely no choice. I'd bet he'd still be lower than 99% of the companies out there, and you will always know that the customer service is second to no one.

Gotta get while the gettin's good,

Strike while the iron is hot, and all that.

Likewise, the day BCM ends the "summer sale" on uppers, folks are gonna be howling about it.

Ain't that the truth. I just sent BCM a money order for $1K; and I wasn't even buying on the summer sale!

I should receive my BCM blemished lower (bought here) and the new 14.5 upper next week. Damn, I can't sleep thinking about it!

Don't forget his insanely-fast shipping

In case anyone missed it, Marshall / Primary Arms gave fair warning that this was going to occur.

Most retailers would never do such a thing. PA went above & beyond in typical fashion to address this proactively.

I don't know why someone would single out a retailer for doing so on a public forum when they could have easily contacted them (primary arms) directly about it first.

Marshall is a stand up, good guy, and a supporter of this site. This thread needs to be deleted.

The post was FYI and in NO way ment to slander Primary Arms or the people that work there. Businessman usually aren't offended if you are only reporting what is accurate.

Understood, but Marshall already made the FYI himself, and arfcom is a giant knitting-circle of old catty ladies. Pretty much everything said, good or bad, tends to devolve fast . Anything that does not, gets labeled as "Kool aid". Today their reputation precluded any response. Tomorrow, their reputation could be considered "kool aid".

The smart guys can usually feel out who the other smart guys are quickly. "kool aid" is sweet for a reason.

I have to agree, it seemed like an odd post. I don't toss up a thread each time I decide not to buy because of price. As others have said Marshall warned about the increase that EOtech required. PA is in the top echelon of online retailers as far as customer service.

Email Scott Scott@primaryarms.com He will hook you up at the old price.

Thanks
Marshall


There you go

I have bought several items from Primary Arms and Marshall has always gone above and beyond matching prices of other retailers etc. Marshall is a heck of a guy in my book.
