Anyone ordered anything from them? Wondering if they are reputable and pleasant to deal with.

Also, is there sales tax for shipments to CA?

:rofl:

Botach is the one of the worst vendors in the shooting industry. Save the frusteration.

Yes, I have ordered from them. No, they are not reputable, nor are they pleasant to deal with.

As a business located in CA they must charge state sales tax on purchases made by CA residents.


I will not order from them again, no matter how good the deal is.

Last Friday I placed an order with Botach. I bought the Grip Pod for $69.95 + tax & shipping. It came with a free dual rail for lights, lasers, etc. (a $30 value), although I doubt I'll ever use it. Anyhow, it arrived on Monday without a hitch. I love it. High quality, great price, smooth transaction, super quick shipment. No complaints here.

Great, a hijacked "take the pi** out of Botach" thread when there's already one at http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?p=913048. Thanks OP, I put in the code before my order early this AM.

I have had GREAT experience with them in the past 6 months. All the BBB complaints I saw were at least 3 years old.

Time from order to shipping to arrival here is 2 business days or less. Customer service is pleasant to deal with.

Paying for ground shipping and it being practically next-day is great. Paying incredibly small fractions of what the stuff originally cost retail is great.

If you're buying a high-ticket item and the tax will choke you, don't order from Botach. If asking them before you order if the things you want are in stock is not your style, don't order from Botach. If you believe in cutting off your nose to spite your face (not verifying a company is as bastardly as some say, even if their prices are rock bottom), by all means, don't order from Botach.

botach is ok.

i ordered a kz rail for my oll build. i got it in 4 days. but before i placed the order, i went on their site to the live help to chat with some live just to double confirm if they had the item in stock.forget about calling them no pick up. you just end up in an automated voicemail system.if they have it stock, its not too bad but i heard horror stories of people placing orders for items not in stock..

I used to order from them years ago and had some good deals. I even went to thier store once in LA. I did have a nightmare once where I ordered something they said was in stock and recieved it 4 months later. Never again.

I ordered a bipod on thursday and recieved it today (friday). That's got to be the fastest online order I ever got. My experience was pretty good.

They not only rip me off by sending me an expired product and then after much hassle, the wrong product; they later reported to LASD investigators that they did not sell me, and might have in fact sold to the military, body armor which they in fact DID sell to me and which not only did I have the receipts for, but when I called them with the order number they verified that they had computer records of the transaction. A bunch of asshats that will I NEVER deal with again.

The only way to be sure when u buy from BS Botach is when you go in person to their store.
I would never order anything online from them!

They have a bad rep from the many posters here and on glocktalk as well. I'll save myself the hassle and not order from them.

I read that Botach had a terrible rep. Then I used their discounts to get my ACOG at a cheaper price than I could find anywhere (and my Google-fu is strong). ACOG arrived very quickly. I even messed up on my order and didn't put in the correct discount coupon. I had to call and deal with their customer service and everything. It was relatively painless and everything was worked out in a timely manner.

I feel the need to relay my positive experience in light of all the negativity they seem to get.

Well I imagine they don't screw up EVERY order.

It's like rolling the dice with this company.

I ordered a Camelbak Talon for $79.95 from Botach, which is regularly a $135 to $165 product. Since I'd have to pay shipping from anyone, that's a wash, and tax brought it to - what - $87? That's a huge savings.

I looked at all the bad reviews, and they were all over five years old. So I took a chance and ordered from them. They did take long enough to ship that I started to get nervous, but their new policy is to not charge the card until the item ships. The phone people seemed quite odd; one woman in particular kept answering the phone "BIO-tEch." Anyway, I enjoyed getting my stuff cheap from them.

I was wary to order from them, but I did...Ordered on a Sunday, and recieved on Tuesday. Very good deal on a new streamlight TLR-2 and GG&G usp slimline adapter. Totaled 265 to my door. I suppose I got lucky

I ordered the Insight SSL-1 taclight from them and it arrived pretty fast. No problems buying from them on my end here.

A few months ago I ordered two 32 oz cans of Break Free liquid bore cleaner, which Break Free no longer produces :mad: Their website said they were sold out of the 32 oz and my intention was to purchase an S load of 4 oz jars. When I inquired on the 32 oz cans the lady I was speaking to checked their stock and they did in fact have some so I ordered two cans and received the shipment two days later. This was my first experience purchasing from them and I have nothing bad to say. I was very satisfied.

i've ordered from them a few times now. they have prices that are pretty tough to beat. i've saved so much money doing large orders of small stuff like supplies and parts. even with shipping and tax.

in one order there was stuff missing, but it was just out of stock. i didn't get charged for it and everything on the invoice was charged accordingly. no problem with them from me.

I just got my first Botach order (nothing critical to my build, because of the mounds of bad feedback) without a problem - fast delivery & all items as ordered.
I'd probably roll the dice again, but I still wouldn't order something I needed fast or was essential to the function of my build... Just in case.

I ordered some MSA Sordin Supreme Pro-X ear muffs and saved a bundle, they were brand new, and I received them the following day.

So far great service.
