I ordered some P-mags twice in the past two weeks from Botach

They have a new deal:

3-Pack of Magpul P-Mags for $33 and free shipping

So $11 each - shipped

They got 4 colors


Also - you can get the ones with the windows for 3 for $39 or $13 each - shipped

I got a different deal, but it came out to about the same. Just in case any of you need some more mags...and how could you possibly have enough? :D:

Oh and I've ordered like 10 times from Botach without a single problem, of which two orders were in past two weeks.

After having problems with that company (Botach), and researching them, only to find MANY other people have had problems with them too, I would never give them a buck. There are too many other choices out there deserving of our business. That place isn't one of them.

Sometimes a deal is too hard to pass up. Make sure you use your credit card and let them del with it if you have issues, always good results with that.

I ordered twice in the past two weeks:

8 Regular 30 rounders
3 With the windows
2 20 rounders (save on weight and nice and short)

13 mags for around $160 - like $12 each (average)


I've never had a problem with Botach

I have only dealt with them once personally and the transaction was flawless. I'm just one of the lucky ones I guess..

I've tried to deal with them several times in the past. Most every time I've ordered I waited several weeks, tried to get someone that spoke English on the phone, failed, waited, sent emails, then after over a month of no updates and no product contacted my credit card company to get a refund. I did have an order go through once. It took weeks to complete, they sell things they don't have in stock I guess... but it did come.

I hate having to wait weeks for products, hound people on the phone (if you can even get them on the phone) and worry about not getting what I paid for. It's not worth the $3 savings, IMHO.

With nearly 300 recent complaints to the BBB about them, I don't think I'm alone in my bad experiences.

But the price does look attractive.

Wow!

I guess I've just been lucky...I wonder if I should push my luck again

My last two orders over the past two weeks arrived like 3 or 4 days later.

It seems to be luck of the draw. I know people, like you, who haven't had any problems. Then there's people like me that's tried several times and had bad luck.

Not sure...

I would say keep ordering until something bad happens. If you're using a CC the worse that can happen is you have to sit on the phone for 20 minutes with your CC company getting the charges reversed. You won't lose any money.

My bad experience with them was years ago. They had a ton of BBB complaints back then too. I figured they might have changed since then, but I guess not. I will never give them a single dollar, even if they correct their problems and become the best in the industry. They deserve to go out of business.

I ordered from them a few months ago when magpul was 30% off. Yes, they are not as proactive as some other sellers, but they got me my ordered product on time and processed my backorder cancellation promptly.

I'd say go for it.

They definitely have good deals on stuff. I bought my Galil mags from them 10 years ago. They have major hookups in the Middle East. I bought some Vickers gloves from them a while back but they stiffed me on the lights they listed in stock and I wound up paying $24 for shipping, which was the same amount I hoped to save. I contacted them but no reponse. The oversight, I can handle. The lack of response? They can find another customer.

Run from Botach

You want gun gear and Guns too, go here.

I saved 300$ my first order, and had zero issues with anything they do

Any unresolved issues from a company like Botach makes them a liability. Yes, use them and your credit card so you can waste time when you finally get screwed, or find a company who treats you right and doesnt burn you. GBC is a great company, and sells at wholsale direct.
