Okay, so what good or bad experiences with gun or gun-related companies do you have? I think with all the gun owners here, we must spend an awful lot of money combined on turning perfectly good, loaded ammo into hot brass, so let's pass on good reports so other members can reward the good companies and bad ones so we know who to watch out for. I'll start. i bought a used Henry Survival Rifle in Tucson and the day after I brought it home, I dropped it and the stock broke. When I called Henry Arms, I was expecting to buy a new stock, since I explained that it was used and not new, but they shipped a new stock anyway. Another one is Lee Precision. I bought a set of Pacesetter .223 dies at the Sportsman Center here on post, but because I couldn't get components for so long, I hadn't tried using them for months afterward. When I got the components together, I thought it was strange that the die set didn't have a bullet seating die. I've never loaded rifle ammo before, so I figured the factory crimp die acted to seat the bullet, but when I called Lee, they said it should have come with three dies. I couldn't give them a receipt, or even a date that I purchased the set, but I just got a bullet seating die in the mail today, free of charge. I know it doesn't cost the companies much for these, but with the volume of calls they must get nowadays, they both did a good job of responding very quickly and with zero hassle.
