yesterday I placed a order online with SOG the total was $722.80 + shipping. It said that shipping would be figered when the package shipped and totaled. Ok no problem I understand that they do know the total shipping cost then. Now today I check and there website says that order was cancled and a new order placed for the same items but the prices are more. Not a lot more mind you but still more and there is a shipping charge of $29.00 for a total of $773.49. Anyone have any idea why this is? I was thinking that shipping would be close to $40.00 so its still not that much more but I want to make sure I am not getting ripped off here. here is the breakdown of my order

P64 Handpick $179.95 old price $185.35 new price
Romanian Tokarev Handpick $209.95 old price $216.25 new price
CZ82 Handpick $219.95 old price $226.55 new price
Nagant Revolver Handpick $112.95 old price $116.34 new price
$29.00 shipping
Totals $722.80+shipping $773.49

They add 3% for credit card orders...
I have had very good luck with SOG but they don't always tell you about the credit card charge.

Did you look at J&G? I'm looking at getting the CZ82 and P64 as well either from SOG or J&G. Does SOG have them in better condition?

I take it you have a COE so all the handguns can be under the same period and not have to wait 30 days for each?

This happened to me on some ammo. I called and they asked if I paid with a credit card. I said yes and they then said they add 3% to the total for credit card transactions. However it does not say this anywhere on there site that I can find. I was bummed but I still got a better deal than anywhere else. But I will continue to buy my rifles from J&G. And ammo if they get the right deals in.

oh ok that makes sence. 3% on CC no worries then. Thank you and thanks for the quick replys

one78shovel no I dont have my COE but I do have a 2nd C+R out of state so they will be shipped there and I will bring them into CA myself. I didnt place a order with J&G for 2 reasons. One I could get all that I wanted from SOG and only pay one shipping charge and 2nd I am planning on taking a road trip to J&G in a few months so I will check it out myself and stock up on heavy stuff like ammo and pickup any C&R handguns I like then.

Yep I am planning the same thing. A trip to J&G myself to pick up some handguns. I am saving my duckets now for this trip. But I keep ordering rifles when I see one I like so it puts my trip back a bit more everytime! Dahm this FFL 03!

golddredger you see the 3% on CC alot on gunbroker and ebay from smaller shops. The credit card company charge the seller a fee to be able to take CC so they pass the fee down to us. This keeps there prices lower for cash sales but it is against the credit card companys policy that is why someplaces do put it on there website.

Years ago I had a hotel oversea do the same thing to me. After I stayed there I sent a letter to my credit card company with a copy of the bill showing a increased rate for credit cards and a copy of there website that said they did and they gave me a credit on my card for the difference but then they pulled the hotels credit card machine so they could no longer take CC and next time I stayed there they were cash only!! so it is kind of a double edge sword I am not upset about this this time but now I know next time I order it is better to do a COD.

damm C&R lol.... I try to save as much as I can when I can. All be equal sometimes it is cheaper to place a order for something that is $10 more when you are ordering something else and pay less shipping then to order it by its self and pay another shipping charge. For now I am trying to get the things I cant get myself here in CA

I would of (as I always do) printed a copy of the order that was placed and then throw it in there face. Telling them that this is a bunch of BS. If they want to argue about it, then maybe consult an attorney over the matter.

you think 3% is bad! wait till you drive to j&g and buy a bunch of rifles and all of a sudden see an almost $100 fee.... for tax.... don't forget arizona is more than 9% sales... ****ing blew my socks off after i found out.

It's not a CC use fee it's a cash discount so drive on over and pay cash or send a money order.

I don't mind the 3% could be worse you could go to Big5 and pay dros + 8.75% tax on a $189 mosin.

Sounds like you got SOGged!

SOG has been very good to me and I have received some very nice rifles.
