"I ordered 2 p68 mak pistols from them and the pistols were not of the quality advertised. ended up down 70 dollars with no pistols also used up hours of my time. They have a 20 dollar hand select fee for quality which did not return quality results. My advice is do not do business with these people... "

"I ordered a new AK pattern rifle from classic firearms on June 18th. It shipped within 2 business days and i received in 4 business days from my date of purchase. The product was as advertised and it looked great. One of the two banana mags that it came with was not in it packaging, but that is no big deal considering that it still worked properly. From reading some other reviews about classic, it seems that people whom ordered new items tend to have a higher rated review. I have never ordered from classic in the past before ordering my AK, but i was quite pleased with the timely service i have received. And no, classic firearms did not ask me to write this review"

"Ordered a rifle on 4/30/15, got an email that they had my FFL's info on file and were good to go. The status of my order stated "Ready for Picking" so I figured it should ship soon. Monday rolled around and it was still in the same status. I e-mailed then and was told it would be 8-10 BUSINESS DAYS from when the order was originally placed. Today (5/5/15), the payment cleared my bank and it is still sitting in "Ready for Picking."

I don't think I've ever had an online company actually take the money before shipping my order. I'm looking at, potentially, another week and a half before they will even consider shipping it but they already took payment. I should have paid the extra $7 and ordered elsewhere (where I also hadn't done business before) but they popped up as having the rifle for less right before I placed my order. Additionally, their policy is quite severe for cancelling an order and since they pulled the money so far ahead of actually shipping my rifle, all I can do is wait.

As for the price rating, they increased the price of the rifle by $50 the next day, so their prices are not that good.

"I received a damaged PPS43C pistol and now they want me to ship it to IO instead of getting a refund from them. I did not notice the damage till I got home and emailed them the following day. Classic Firearms is not standing by their return policy and allowing me to return it to them. Instead, they want me to ship it to the manufacturer, IO. It's not my fault they did not check it either and should deal with IO themselves. I'm the customer. Bad customer service and I will probably not order another gun from Classic Firearms if this is how they work. I'm so upset and livid with Classic Firearms. Not a good way to do business."

"I bought a Beretta 92S from them, second weapon purchase from CF. On their website they claimed that most of these Berettas looked like new, and the rest had minimal holster wear. I emailed them, to return the pistol, because it looked like it had been drug through the gravel behind a truck. I was told they would refund my money, but I would have to pay to ship it back. There was no apology for false advertisement. I will never purchase another item for them, and I am telling everyone who will listen. I tried to post a review on their website twice, and my comments will not post."

"Purchased just under $970.00 and one of the items was missing critical parts. The ad mentioned how great the rifle was, but in fact it was damaged in several places. The response was opps "we dropped the ball" we will ship you the part you need. Nothing mentioned about the awful condition of the rifle. They knew how bad it was, as it was probably the last of the lot. The following week a brand new shipment arrived. Sorry, burn me once , you never get too again. Maybe would have used again if they were not so greedy. Good news.. I Just purchased a few more guns for my collection on gunbroker. Paid about 5% more but way worth it because they ( all of the sellers) stand behind the items they sell. Not like I need it because they arrived in pristine condition as advertised. Save yourself the headache of "pot luck firearm shopping". Buy anywhere but classic. "

"Being a collector of firearms, I've ordered from all of the well known firearms sites online. Without hesitation, I would rate Classic Firearms as the best of them all. Their site is very easy to navigate, and their communication through delivery is second to none. The phone staff has been very helpful when needed as well. Their prices are extremely competitive , though I do not base my buying decisions solely on price like many shoppers do. Customer service is most important and Classic hits a home run in that area!

I've now bought from their site 8 times and will likely buy from them again soon.

"I have made several purchases from Classic and have had no issues whatsoever. The poor reviews are a surprise and I suspect they may have been planted by a ringer for another company, or just someone who is bent on doing harm to a retailer."

"I was extremely happy to find someone carrying hex receiver 91/30 mosins, and although the price was a little higher than I was hoping to spend it was the cheapest I've been able to find them. The rifle was packaged very well and delivered to my FFL within 5 days of ordering. The rifle appeared to be in unissued or excellent used condition. I could not find any marks in the stock or marring in the bluing. The only real problem I had with them was that their website is a bit user unfriendly and I had to call them to get some information. That was not really a big deal, but the person I spoke to was not very friendly and even bordered on being rude. I had a simple question about something that I could not find out anywhere on their website and they acted as if I should have already known despite it being the first time I had ever dealt with them or even seen their site for that matter. If they had been friendly at all when I called I would have rated them higher. Their communication regarding the order was excellent. I received e-mail updates every time there was a status change in the order, including when it was signed for on delivery and a name. Overall I had a very good experience with them."

"Classic firearms is a very rude company with poor customer service and communication. They had a promotion for expedited processing and shipping of 1-2 days, which did not differ in time from a normal purchase. When contacting them, they implied that I was wrong and it was not a sale, so I contacted them again saying that's not what I said, I said promotion. They in turn replied that I was confused with another site and that I was wrong and it was neither a promotion and what part do I not understand? After explaining my situation they only replied OK...

This is what made me very furious. In their about us section Classic firearms states that "Customer satisfaction has always been and will always be our #1 goal. We constantly are developing and implementing new processes, technology, and infrastructure to assist our passion towards complete customer satisfaction".

This was not the case with me and when I told them about it, they told me to stop emailing them and that my problem was petty. No other people have complained about it, and they have bigger issues to deal with than my satisfaction.

"So far, you are the ONLY complaint, so I think we are doing just fine". -Classic Firearms

Do not deal with this bible beating company. They are very rude and do not care about their customers.

"Classic Arms has horrible customer service and very deceptive advertising. I purchased an AK advertised as new in description and in all the reviews for the product. I received an obviously used (used sale tag still looped around trigger guard) and banged up AK. The AK actually had a large gash where the bluing came off on the gas tube. When I called they said that as long as it works it's not their problem. I was able to convince them to take it back, and refund shipping one of the ways. Spoke with Rick (the manager) and he assured me it wasn't used despite what my eyes would lead me to believe. "
