I had several no issue orders with them as well...until they ran a weekend sale. Everything in stock was 20% off. I called with a list of stuff to order. A bunch of items were not in stock. I keep going through the list and the salesman asks me to call back when he would have more time to check inventories (still during the sale). I call back and he said the owner told them they were no longer accepting orders, unless the order was placed at the full retail price. In other words, he refused to honor the sale, even though he asked me to call back. I don't blame the salesman, it was the owner (and that's an interesting family if you know your history).
Mine isn't the only story, several people have posted that they have placed orders for things they didn't have in stock and refused to give refunds. Dealing with BOTACH is a lot like dice. You can roll a pair for a long time before you come up snake eyes.
I've ordered a lot of ammo and mags from them without many issues. Sometimes the boxes arrive pretty beat up or damaged, but no issues with the items themselves. That said, I did have two specific problems with Botach that I'll share.
First, I ordered a pair of HK Geissele triggers that were listed as being in stock. After a month without the triggers, I called to complain and was told that the MR762 order was being canceled by them completely, and they were offering nothing for the trouble. No 10-percent discount on another item...nothing. They just said they weren't getting the triggers and that was that. Naturally, I was pretty pissed. Making matters worse, I was told the MR556 trigger was backordered and there was no timetable available. He said it would probably be several months or longer. I canceled and steered clear of Botach for quite a while after that.
The second issue, I had purchased some of their gift cards on sale for 15-percent off. When I went to use them on some ammo about six months later, I was told that Botach had a new policy that gift cards couldn't be used on ammo or firearms. Naturally, I went nuclear on them to the point that they agreed to honor them. I haven't bought a single gift card since - including the occasional sales where they offer them for 10 or 15 percent off. I felt way too burned by them suddenly deciding to invoke a new rule after they already had my money.
This looks like a good one and I'm betting it will work out fine for those who order. But I'd just say that in my experience, operate with caution. I've probably had 8 good sales experiences with them and those two bad ones. Unfortunately, the bad ones always stick with you. Just something to keep in mind.
I ordered one on the 31st. They still haven’t shipped it yet.....
I once got “botached” with some part of I recall. I think I ended up cancelling an order
I got thru to customer service today and he was nice. But hadn’t shipped.
The sku indicates LE
Does the backstraps on the VP 9 SK move a little to the left or right? I changed the back strip and I don't remember it doing that before I changed it. Is there a science to switching these out?
