I'm thinking of ordering a Polish Underfolder kit and would like to get some feedback first. Thanks!

No problemo.

The guy seems real nice and knowledgeable but I am not going to " pre-pay " my ammo order in advance. What happens if Dan's Ammo is $20 cheaper per case? You are screwed because he locked you in on pricing, and backing out would be very difficult since you already paid...

nice rant about your thoughts on the ammo...

Bob is a straight up guy.
If he makes a mistake he will correct it.
If you "prepaid" for ammo and Dan was cheaper, I bet Bob would refund the difference in order to make the sale.....

As far as Polish kits go... his have been getting great reviews @ gunco.net

+1 for Bob. Bob is the opposite of K-var concerning his pricing.

I work in Akron, and called him on my lunch break one day to ask some AK related questions, super knowledgeable,friendly as can be. Looking forward to doing business with him some day.

+1 on Akron Armory.

Got my two Polish underfolders from them and they are sweet! I am in on the 5.45 pre pay buy with them as who know how much will really be getting here. I am now looking at a Tantal to add to my Bulgies since I'll have the good 5.45 to save and can blast som of my Wolf. Even if ammo loosens up I want to save this stuff.

Good luck. I hope he comes through for you better than he did for me.

Stand up Guy. Did me very well. I'd order again anytime.

He is a good guy.

IMHO, Dans and ORF caused the screw up last summer.

Bob went out of his way to make sure I got my stuff.

That sure seems to be the case. Everyone read about it here and on AKFiles and it was clear what was going on behind the scenes. The moderators that took it upon themselves to ban him are now starting their own board. The funny thing is no matter what you believe it appears that Bob was removed as a member here without being allowed to respond. Because he was selling without a vendor account. Wasnt he part of ORF at that time?

We have many vendors selling all day in EE that are not registered dealers or partners. One of them is commenting in this very thread.

Why can we not all get along?

If you are a salesman selling under someone elses license. You leave the owners business, he isn't going to pay for your advertising. A vendor pays a fee to advertise here. It you are working under their "license" as their salesman and you go out on your own, you have to pay for your own advertising and dealer fee or you get the boot.

If you are referring to me, I could hardly be considered a "vendor." An active trader and enthusiast who dabbles in the occasional part sale, YES. I sell some small things (I have a couple threads in the EE right now) in order to buy more kits and parts for my own collection from people who actually run a business doing it (K-Var, DPH, Dan's ORF, etc..). Sometimes I come out a little ahead (slings) and sometimes I lose money (5.56 mags). I made $25,000 last year. Can you blame me for doing this to enjoy my hobby?




Why can we not all get along?





I'm getting along fine. That's why I'm not posting details of the transaction and bashing anyone. I simply wished my fellow board member cms81586 better luck than I had.

Some people know what happened and some people think they know what happened. No big deal.

I spoke to an importer and a distributor who will have their hands on this ammo, and know of three distributors that will have it from said importer.

It's coming by the millions....if I remember the conversation correctly, 15-20 million rounds. It will be around for awhile.

If you're worried, then pre-order. If you want to let the competitive market economy work to your advantage, then wait and see what happens.

So is it the real thing? Steel core and all?

I believe they are both getting it from the same source.

They were in the past.

They both use PW Arms as an import source.

Great kits and easy ordering. Shipping was a little slow, but really I have no complaints.

I have had good dealings with Bob. Got some nice things off of him.
