Default Like to gamble? - Cheap AimPoint H-1's and T-1's at Botach

It's always a gamble buying at Botach, but if you're in the gambling mood, AimPoint Micros can be had for cheap.

Coupon code: aimpointmicro

AimPoint T-1: $436
http://www.botachtactical.com/aimit14m.html

AimPoint H-1: $396
http://www.botachtactical.com/aimit1misi.html

Even with tax, those prices are cheaper than buying used.


For the record, I refuse to buy from Botach. I've just heard too many horror stories.

The T-1 comes up at $623 or so when I add it to my cart. Am I missing something here?

Yeah that was my bad. Drinking heavily and calguns don't mix.

I usually don't mix the two ever since I woke up once to a private message asking when I wanted to meet up for the PPT for a gun I apparently bought in my drunken state. I LoL'd and agreed to a PPT that same day only because I had already agreed to it (even though I didn't remember).

I've bought two T1s from Botach with no problem. But the Magpul items I ordered once too like 6 weeks to deliver...

This morning, I chatted (online) with a Botach rep and confirmed the H1 was in stock. Placed my order around 10 AM. Got a tracking number around 5 PM. UPS tracking says the package is already in UPS's possession. Estimated delivery is tomorrow.

Don't get me wrong, I was pretty paranoid doing research and placing the order but it seems like it's going very smoothly.

I got my T1 today. Aside from the protective bikini cap being really dirty everything is good. The shipping was exceptionally fast too. the only problem with this whole transaction is that it contradicts all my valuable sources that say Botach is a nightmare to deal with. I'm going to feel like every transaction with them is a gamble.

I have never had a bad experience with Botach. However, prior to placing an order online, I do call them and ask if the items are in stock. If they are not, then I do not order them. Typically the shipments are at my house within a few days.

My one order with Botach went surprisingly well (and this was during the Obama craze).

However, my brother ordered an item last year and just like a member said above, there was no reply. Nothing was ever shipped. Nothing was ever billed. You'd think they'd at least have the courtesy to contact you. Afterall, we are trying to spend money with them.

With that being said, Botach is still in business, so people must be getting their orders. They can't have a 100% fail rate. However, the number of dissatisfied customers is disproportionately high.

It's supposed to come in a bubble wrap envelope. These are "OEM" and don't come in the retail packaging and don't include the mount.

Yeah, good luck!

Unless it's a killer deal like this again, I'm a bit apprehensive to try them again, lol.
