Cdnn

Does anyone have any experience with buying firearms from CDDN? I'm thinking about picking up a SIG P229 from them but wanted to make sure they are legit and reliable.

Also, how does that work. Do you have to call in your order and then send them the FFL referencing the order number?

Thanks for the help all,

TBT

I've ordered 2 pistols from CDNN without a single hitch. Cheap prices, good response time. IIRC, I ordered the pistols and then sent the FFL form referencing my order number.

I've ordered guns and magazines from them before, and was very pleased. They are good folks in my book. I have found their ads to be accurate, their shipping to be fast, and they are on top of the ins and outs of mail ordering. Have your FFL send them a copy of his license, signed in blue ink, and go to their online catalog. Request that they send a printed version to your house. They will. When you are ready to order, just have your FFL call them and give the item number. Pick it up when it arrives.

I have no experience in how they handle complaints, because I have never had a complaint.

XavierBreath! Good to hear from you again. I didn't know you were a member here. I quoted you in another thread here about the spring change in the 92FS.

Good to see you, and good advise.

I've ordered from them several times, and like them a lot. Good prices, quick shipping. I've heard they work for comission (not sure about this), so I'll plug my salesperson. . .if you call ask for Seth, he's a good guy.

Gunrunners Of Pa

Just contacted gunrunners of pa and they say they are on file with CDNN and that I can place my order without worries and pick it up for a transfer fee of $20.

So all sounds good, hope I have a good exp. with CDNN as well. I'll let you all know how it turns out.

Thanks for the info!

I'm thinking about ordering a SIG, yes. I'm not sure if I want the P226 or the P229 though. I really like the 226 but I hear that if you have small hands (and I do) the 226 can be a tough gun to use. That is what has me leaning toward the P228.

I'm just hoping that CDNN isn't sold out of all the guns.

I just got my 226 from CDNN today, sent it back, the fit was terrible on it, but the finish was nice. They have a return policy, so that's solid.

As for the 226 not fitting small hands, the 228 and 229 have the same width as a 226 with factory grips....so get what you like.

BTW...the CDNN 226 come with Uncle Mikes grips, not factory Sig grips....they are a little wider.

I ordered guns and accesories from them, all dealings have been excellent.

One magazine for my Arcus 94 didn't fit, they exchanged it for another magazine which cost more and more than made up for shipping it back to them.

Guns have been great.

Excellent company.

I have ordered gun parts (a beretta 96 top end) and many many mags from them never a bit of trouble, only thing even pops up was ordered a dozen S&W mags for buddy and 11 showed up, called and got two more in two days with note saying sorry.
I like to have a small problem with a supplier every once in a while because I think how they respond shows more about the company in some ways. But I think I have ordered maybe fifty times from them, that was the only time I had to call back.

I wonder if they sent me the gun you sent back to them? Great finish, really bad frame to slide fit.

I'm still waiting on a 226...I wanted a 225 but they dropped the ball and by the time they got back to me, they were out of them. So I'm trying the 226 in .40. I'll see how it goes.

I have purchased 3 of the FN Hi Powers from them in the last two weeks. All have been perfect and delivery was flawless. If your FFL is on file with them, it works even better. Superb to deal with.
