Optics Planet Sucks
« on: April 13, 2021, 08:53:30 AM »
I opened an account because they showed .30-30 in stock and while ordering a 5-10 day lead time to fill. Ordered 4 boxes. Email confirmation came saying expected due date was 07/05/2021. Checked again today - 07/11/2021.

I understand the ammo shortage is definitely a thing. But always tell the customer what to expect. These guys suck.

Seems to be a common opinion of them these days, I haven't used them and definitely don't plan to

If you can find a courier, Iíd give you a box. I bought a few for the brass when they were cheap. I donít want to deal with shipping, but if you can find a ride for it from Enumclaw itís yours. Iím out of town tonight- Monday, but itís available anytime after that if you want it.

Seems to be a common problem right now. These companies probably have "good enough" inventory systems that fail under high demand.

Up until last year optics planet was a great site to order from.  I am in the same boat with one item.  It has soured me and I will not use them again.  I wouldnít be surprised if they go out of business because of this....heck, they may already be out of business.    :chuckle:

They are dead to me!!

Funny, those are the same due dates posted on an order I placed 2/15.   :sry:  not funny.

That's a very nice offer, thanks. I don't know of anyone going near you, though. :'(

I've never had a problem with them.

Keep checking Starline Brass site.  Keep a tab open, and refresh every day.  Their Out of Stock, No Backorder changes at times to Backorder's accepted.  I placed a backorder for .45 Colt brass last week in just such a manner.  I don't know when I will get it, but I am giving them a chance for their FCFS fulfillment statement.

They did that with the bowcase my wife ordered for Christmas.
