Northwest Tactical

Me and a buddy were looking for some new P-mags for our AR-15's. Googled them and came across Northwest Tactical as a supplier. Between the two of use we ordered ten just to see if we liked them. About a week after the order was placed we looked to see if we recieved an email confirming shipment. Nothing! We waited another week. Nothing! So I decided to call them up to question the status of the order/shipment. All I connected to was a voicemail box that was full and unable to recieve messages. I figured wait a day or two and call back, same thing. I sent and email, no response! I'm begining to think that we aren't getting these mags, at least not from Northwest Tactical. Do not know if this is their status quo as this is my forst expierence with the company but so far I'm definetely not pleased. Just a warning to TFL members.

Do you have a web address or location. I read Northwest and thought my home turf.

Here's their information. Called again yesterday evening and again all I got was a voice mailbox that is full so I cannot leave a message. Obviously this will be a the last time that I will even look at these guys.

I was in the market for some pmags a few weeks ago and almost placed an order with these guys. For whatever reason, I ended up ordering from instead. That went smooth and they had my order shipped pretty quickly.

I ordered D&H teflon 20 rounders and after 6 weeks they were still backordered while several other shops had them in stock. Credit card wasn't charged when I canceled ... they seem to have some issues that go on without explanation.

Bravo Company had the order shipped in one day.

update from my last post;
buffalo arms called right after i posted and cleared everything up. seems i had made a mistake on one item number in the order. they saw a pattern in all the other items ordered and this one didnt fit . they were right. the delay was them trying to make sense of my order. and save me some money!
they get an A+ now.

Any response yet from NW Tactical?

jeo556, just curious if this issue has been resolved yet.

Wow, I am shocked. I had nothing but good dealings with NorthWest Tactical. I even posted a positive review on them some time ago here on TFL. In my case, the price, product, service and communication were all A+++. I was very impressed. Sorry to hear that this has happened now to a fellow TFL member.
