Experiences with Sporter Express?

I stumbled across a website that has some stuff that interests me, like Mauser low scope safeties and barrels. Has anyone had any experiences ordering from them? I've been burned by what appeared to be a reputable ecommerce site recently (not gun related) and so I'm a bit more cautious that I used to be.

Any good or bad experiences?

i have purchased from them on several occasions.

they are a sponsor over on mausercentral (great site if you have a mauser)

some times their prices are a bit steep, but I called them once on a price of a lothar walther barrel and they verified that the other shop (online shop) had it for cheaper and they did a price match and shipped for free.

I will do business with them again in the future and would recommend them.

If it's the same outfit out of E-Town, KY ... I have dealt with them.

I bought an AR-15 Upper from them at a local gun show last Spring.

After assembly and firing, a problem showed up in the rifling of the barrel.

I contacted Sporter Express, and James swapped out the upper for me without any issue.

I didn't realize they were in E-Town. I could just drive down and pick stuff up in person if I wanted to.

Riverwalker, what gun show did you deal with them at? National Gun Day in Louisville or a different one?
