The money you save isn't worth the headache of buying from botach. They bring a level of service fail that is topped only by TMJ.

I've ordered several things from them and they have been great. Even called me when they needed my Dept ID for something I purchased.

Botach sucks! I drove 20 miles to their store which was not easy to find and then was told I could not buy from them unless I was LEO or Military, I thinks it's stupid that civilians can buy from them online but not in person. I ordered from them once and it took a month to receive the item, customer service sucks.

Just ordered this deal from them this morning and received a phone call after about an hour. They told me that it's shipping out today. Good customer service, so far.

Thanks Dan!

Out of 6 orders, I did have one get delayed because they were out of stock. Otherwise, no issue.
Those KZ mounts are good enough to give you time to save up for a LaRue or whatever else. (And I still have not replaced mine!)

I'd like to follow this thread. I want to see if they are still the same botach I know. I had a bad experience with them. I had an item dropped ship to me direct from somewhere. A month before that, I was told it was already in their shipping department or ready for shipment at their warehouse blah blah blah. Even if their the last on-line store in California , I'll never...again.
Do they answer their phone now?

$454 is a great sounding deal. SOUNDING. I don't care. Botach blows goats.

Their company motto should be, "BOTACH...We aren't satisfied until YOU'RE not satisfied!"

Did anybody receive their Aimpoint Micro yet? I just got mine, and it came in white bag with an aimpoint sticker on it and its just wrapped in bubble wrap. No Micro Box. Anybody have the same experience?

That's funny. I remember reading a while back that Botach sucks. But recently there were a few good deals, plus the 10% discount (didn't know about the 15%), so I made an order.

Sure enough, things didn't go smoothly, and I didn't get exactly what I wanted. Shipping took forever and they charged me $10+ for shipping a few small plastic items stuffed in a white envelope. Customer service sucked. I won't ever order from or recommend Botach.

02-03-2010, 8:21 PM
Did you compare it with a genuine micro? There's a lot of fake M4s and T-1 fitted for airsoft out there and none of them comes in a box.
Comes in packagings like this.White baggie is something new.

Seems kinda fishy that the Botach's differs so much. I don't think that they're fake but there's a good chance that they're either refurbs or blemish/seconds. If that's the case then that's falsh advertisement & deceptive.

Here's a pic of a normal H1. Notice the lack of "BKB" on the side.

Looks to me that BOTACH does alot of GSA supply. I see that teh baggies say Military on them.Maybe these are a supply overun and the price break comes from them not having the commercial packaging or a Aimpoint mount.

For those following this thread I want to give you a timeline on my order.

I've used Botach twice back in '05 or '06 and it was a mixed bag.

The 1st order I got everything but it took a while for it to get to me and I had to call them a lot since it seemed there was never anyone answering their phone.

2nd order, received half the shipment and the other half was on endless back order status so I ended up canceling it.

I was very hesitant to order again but it seemed some members here and on ARFCOM were getting good experiences and the prices on the Aimpoints are hard to beat.

So I ordered on Tues (2-2-10) the Aimpoint T-1 Package w/ ring for an ACOG and a separate KZ Flashlight ring. Using the CPF code the total was $519.61 and I requested Will Call/Pick-up.

Sent them an e-mail yesterday asking when I can pick it up. Their response:

"Are you LEO or Active Duty Military?"

I replied that I am not and I asked if that was an issue. No response yet and I will update when I hear back from them.

sirnonz
02-04-2010, 1:12 PM
they only offer pickups for leo / military

amp
02-04-2010, 2:02 PM
I received my H1 order the next day after ordering. I'm located in Orange County and they shipped it from LA. Same white foam packaging, and no box. In my case, this has definitely been a good deal.

Thanks OP.

02-04-2010, 11:32 PM

Yeah, I got an e-mail from Botach saying the same thing. I don't remember seeing that on the website though. Oh well, I asked them to ship to my address and I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

word2smoth
02-11-2010, 3:05 PM
After a few e-mails and no reply so yesterday I asked them to cancel my order.

I don't know if they did but I'll update on the progress.

02-17-2010, 11:33 AM
Wow, so I finally get a confirmation e-mail today that my order was cancelled. Jeez, it took them a week just to tell me that.

I found another vendor that is selling Aimpoints for cheap:

http://www.manventureoutpost.com/products/Aimpoint-11830-Micro-T%252d1%2C-4-MOA-NVC.html

You have to sign-in to see the price but for a T-1 it is $507.94!

That is the cheapest price I've found, even better than Botach.

I've searched on Calguns and Google and Manventure Outpost seems to get good reviews.

YMMV.

I thought I saw a thread here a while back talking about how they don't allow civilian pickup. I think the store is in a bad area and they don't want the store to be open to the general public for fear of their safety. I might be confusing Botach with another store but I think it was Botach.

I ordered a few things recently, will let you know how things go...

Good experience for me...

Pick up a 6920 for about $1100 and some change...

You need to be LE/MIL to go into the store...very hard to find and the front is unmarked.

It's basically a warehouse inside...very organized...

Yes the area is not the best...

I would definately shop there again...

hmmm... their prices seem suspiciously low...


edit... reseller ratings gives them 8.5/10... and most negative reviews have follow up comments by the vendor explaining the issue/resolution... I just might have to order from here next week! (birthday gift to myself)

Hi guys,

You might have seen my posts on other forums in recent months (m4carbine.net, thefiringline.com)
I posted with the intention to serve as a contact point for anyone who has had problems with their Botach orders in the past--and to those who intend to place new orders with us.

To date, the feedback has been great, as hundreds of people have emailed me, and have regained their trust in our company.

I encourage anyone with stock/pricing/order inquiries to email me

I was one of those who had a bad xperience with Botach on my first ever order with them. I said I would never order again from this company again.

Well, I gave them a second chance with this Aimpoint deal and I'm very happy with the service this time. #1, They had the product in stock as you should if you're advertising it on your website. #2, Email communication was good. #3, They shipped it quickly.

Good deal on the Aimpoint. Thanks Botach

knowing botachs low reviews i just said screw it, canceled the order on the spot, and sourced my parts else where. :(

I was planning a lightweight AR build and coincidentally stumbled upon the $470 Micro/mount deal and bit. Heard bad stuff about Botach but the only person I know who ordered from them got an extra ACOG he didn't order and they wouldn't take it back so here's hoping I get lucky like him. Ordered on Friday, e-mail from them says should be here by the 3rd.

I'm sure its supposed to be that what but I wish Aimpoint would add it to their FAQ on their website or explain why.

I just have to say that I will never buy from botach again. Its a long story but I am still waiting for a part of my order 2 months later. I called to ask if it was on back order, there was no response so I left a message. Got a text message 2 minutes later saying it was not. Was it that hard to just answer the phone? Delivery has taken so long that I moved and asked them to send the remaining items (2) to my new apartment and they still sent it to my old apartment 3 weeks after I asked them to change the address and they said they did. I had to drive across town to get my package. WTF!!! So now I am just stuck waiting for my gear. Never Again!!!!!

I was trying to find a holster for a S&W M&P40 and I could not locate one to be delivered within one week. I saw a holster and magazine carrier at Botach which appeared to be available. I called Botach customer service verified it was in fact in stock. I asked if they could deliver it within one week, they said they could with standard delivery. I purchased the holster and the next day it arrived. I was shocked and pleased. Yesterday, I was in the LA area and visitied the Botach Store to get a few items. The store is not so much a store but a warehouse. I found a wide variety of items I was looking for at great prices and had personalized service. Everything was in stock and I was and I was allowed to examine and demo items even though they were extremely busy. While at the store, I saw a high volume of walk in traffic as well as noting their phones were ringing off the hook. The staff were extremely helpful curteous and knowledgable. I will definately continue to do business with Botach in the future.
