I think most people have given up on CTD mostly due to price gouging.

Cheaper Than Dirt is less popular around here than Airborne, Asiatic, Scab-flaking Gonnorhea and you should feel bad for trying to give them your money.

Hello everyone, new to Calguns, and recently completed my first build. I ordered from them a few months ago and experienced the same issue. They are just particular on certain items. I ordered ammo through them for a really good price though.

Well, at least you financially supported someone who pursues your loss of rights. May as well donate to DeLeon and Feinstein while you're at it.

Somebody could make pretty good money selling FCTD t-shirts.

Google CTD price gouging, it'll make your eyes water.

$60 for a box of Blazer .380!

Never forget, never forgive.

CTD SUCKS.

Their catalog is still pretty nice, and probablY costly, that's why I still let them send it to me...and then throw it straight into the recycle bin.

To answer your question I suspect that it is down to a component not meeting Ca law, such as the flash hider not pinned or welded.

Anyway, as everyone says, try not to deal with them

I just got a M14 flash hider with bayonet lug for my M14 from Midway, no issues. (It's going to Arizona).

Every now and then I like to copy some high $$$ invoices for ammo and parts that I bought from other vendors, and send them to CTD as my way of saying F-You to them.

This right here. OP, are you out of your mind? Why would you even consider spending a nickle with those douchebags? Go to Brownells, or MidwayUSA. At least they support 2A and gun rights. CTD doesn't even deserved to be mentioned on Calguns. 50 lashes for you and for everyone in a 10' radius of you.

CTD does not support California. Worse, smaller vendors emulate their FUD filled policies. For the life of me I do not understand why anyone in this state would go to their site. I wouldn't buy anything from them no matter the price.

#1 on Exile Machine. They have been there for us throughout whenever possible. Reward those who support us, punish those who do not. It's not all about "a nickel saved".

I don't know,, just bought 2 ASC 25 round mags from them for $13 ea. Best price I could find anywhere. No complaints here.

Well crap,, you did not show up in Google search. I will cancel the CTD order and reorder through you.

I forgot all about Exile (my bad.) OP, buy from these cats. They support not only 2A, but 2A behind the Iron Curtain.

Yep, gave up on them long ago.
They were the first online retailer I bought from years ago, but their anti-CA policies and pricing chicanery made me take my $ elsewhere. Like Midway, AIM, Grafs and many others.

One thing CTD has going for it is that they will ship to a different address than your billing address. My billing address is CA for my AmEx, but I ship most of my stuff to AZ. I have tried to order through Brownells, Midway etc... Most of them will not ship my stuff to AZ which is a problem when I am ordering regular mags etc...

Exile: Will you guys ship to a different address than a billing address?

CTD is not a friend of California.
They tried to earn brownie points and got the praise of the NRA when they dropped a few bucks to fight one of the new laws in 2010 or 2011, but they are NOT our friend.

They confuse Orange County CA with OC New York and will not ship items prohibited by OC New York.
They will not ship items prohibited within the City of Los Angeles to any zip code within Los Angeles County.
They will not ship a bayonet
They will not ship a quad rail
They will not ship ANYTHING that is listed on the California "evil features" list OR the 1994 Federal features list (flash hider, pistol grip, collapsible buttstock, VFG, etc... even after being told that those items are legal for a .22lr).
They indicated right from the start that if AB962's online ammunition ban became law, they would NOT follow the law and ship to those who hold an 03FFL+COE.

Eff them, and any time I see a post or receive an email from the NRA praising what CTD is doing for our rights, they get the above message in response.

Sportsman's Guide is the same.

Agreed with all the above. I'd rather give my money to a better company. Riflegear is my go go online source for a lot of stuff and they help out CA.

Riflegear, Rainier, Midway, Brownelle's, Cabelas.... Though usually I'll just drive to Fountain Valley or any other shop within 50 miles of LA.
I think all of my online purchases this year have been with Midway, Brownelle's, or AmmunitionToGo.

Yeah I am only 800 miles away. Would like to give my business in person but not cost effective. I basically only buy ammo from SGammo.

Screw CTD. They have left California high and dry on more than one occasion and continue to do so.

They gave CA the Finger, and I say the same to them.
