I dealt with them before. They where slow to deliver but I got my product from them. Others have had long wait times or had problems getting their items.

Its good till it goes bad..
They sent me tracking on something and i notice no progress. They give me the excuses and more excuses and finally i request a refund. Then excuses on that. After a couple weeks i contacted my cc company. It was removed from my bill. I guess they ate it, idk...

I've always heard to call them first and make sure something is 100% in stock and not backorder as they have a bad habit of taking your money and waiting for a shipment that could be months out.

The ARX100 I ordered from them a couple years back went very smooth and I had no problems.

Ive got a pending Botach order out there for a Steiner laser. Ordered on 3/29, they responded to my email inquiry recently in one business day and said its being drop shipped and dont know when its going out the door.

So hopefully sometime this year I see the product.

Got a hold of Botach they said they had received my emails and were going to refund my payment because they didn't have a arrival date for product. I told them to hold out and I will notify them if i decided to take a refund. Seem very nice and helpful. Them replying to my emails would have helped with the communication.

Generally are okay. Slow at times and on more than one occasion was emailed back that they couldn't ship outside the United States. I had to remind them that contrary to public opinion that indeed Wyoming was one of the 50 states. Not the sharpest tools in the shed working there but eventually they do ship.

If it's in stock they ship it . If it ain't in stock they don't bother to tell u but will ship it when it comes in , if ever . So it's up to the buyer to find out if it's in stock first .

I've ordered twice from them since they had good prices on the items I wanted. The first time was for some magazines, and they shipped the next day. The second time was last month for an optic mount that was supposedly in stock. After 2 weeks and no status, I asked them to cancel the order via email. It shipped the next day.

They have always done well for me. Their Trijicon MRO blowout was an amazing deal.
