Ammoman
« on: March 12, 2011, 08:32:44 PM »
For those who are looking for a good ammo supplier, I've had only good experiences with Ammoman.com.  I've purchased several thousand rounds from them and they've arrived within a week, the shipping is included in all their prices, their prices are on par or a little cheaper than other suppliers like bulkammo.com, and the ammo goes bang as expected.

I haven't ordered from bulkammo yet so I can't compare, but if they don't have what you're looking for give ammoman a try.

He has had some shady dealings in the past to the point where AR15.com removed them from their sponsor list.  Basically Ammoman pulled the bait and switch and told the recipient to F off when he wanted things made right.

Huh, good to know.  Do you know if it's a pattern or an isolated incident?  Not that I'm saying that gives them the right to tell a customer to F off or that I'm defending them, but people do lie.

In several years on dealing with them I have not had anything approaching this experience. The only time I ever buy elsewhere is because of availability.

I've ordered repeatedly from Ammoman without any issues.  I also use them as a quick price check for ammo.

This is the first time I've heard negative feedback from concerning them.  I'm not going to say that it didn't happen but there's always going to be an unhappy customer somewhere.  I also know that some of the members over on AR15.com aren't the most pleasant people to chat with.

I've also placed several orders with Ammoman over the last two or three years and have been totally pleased.

I saw some references to them as "Scammo Man" on arfcom as well, but don't know the story behind it, much less whether it's legitimate or not.

Theirs is the first place I look when the time comes to get more ammo.

I like them, but I will tell you to watch the item numbers carefully.

I bought something labeled as 9mm hydrashock, but was 9mm +p+

I don't really mind but was surprised, I went back and looked and the
federal code on their website matched what I recieved and the +p+
description.

I think it should have been more clearly labeled as +p+, but the code
was listed on their website.

That's true, you do need to watch carefully sometimes. 

Then again, I got lucky when I was looking for 9mm Gold Dots.  I was hoping to find the +P version and that's what they actually had but you had to look carefully to find the +P designation.

Huh, good to know.  Do you know if it's a pattern or an isolated incident?  Not that I'm saying that gives them the right to tell a customer to F off or that I'm defending them, but people do lie.

  

I know of one major incident that was well documented on ARFCOM and should be in the archives.  It dealt with a supposed Vietnam sks bring back that turned out to not the same gun as advertised.  As said before Erik (Ammoman) acted like and ass and told him to shove it.  There were other issues with other members but those were dealt with behind closed doors with the admins. The owners of ARFCOM decided to pull his sponsorship and banned from the site.  Buy from him if you like.  I have in the past.  I chose to do biz with other vendors that don't have questionable integrity.   YMMV

Good info. I will make sure to check out another source if it is that bad over there. Not worth spending money with a vendor you cannot trust.

+1 on ammoman.....other than the lack of OPSEC on packaging  :o  every dealing with them has been GTG. Always at the front of the best pricing list for what I buy also.

I remember that episode clearly- I had been a big customer of his until it went down.

Ammoman was clearly in the wrong. The SKS was listed on his website as a Vietnam bring back, and that greatly increases its value. When the buyer got it, there were import marks on the barrel, so it was clearly not as advertised.

All the buyer wanted was his money back, and Ammoman flatly refused, told him to stuff it, and said any further contact had to go to his lawyer.

I know he has lots a lot more than the cost of that SKS in missed sales from me after seeing that. The true measure of a company, in my eyes, is how you handle it when things don't go right.
