"Placed an order, was notified that it was backordered. My order stayed on backorder for over a year and then they just cancel my backorder. Price gouging"
"Where do I start.this is the worst company I have ever dealt with online.After placing one small order with no problems ,there the fun ended.I placed a large order on 3/3,they sent the package to the wrong address.After 2 weeks I called and they said the package was returned to them, but never informed me. So i gave them the correct address again,2 days later I check the status of my package,They sent it to the wrong address again. I called them and they had it sent back to them while it was in transit. I was assured I would receive my package on 3/20 . I called today 3/23 ,they have'nt even got the package returned to them.Every time I call there is a 8 to 20 minute wait. Some bozo that owns the company comes on an says, due to a high volume of calls be patience and wait. Well Larry Potterfield , if your that busy hire some help. After hundreds and hundreds of online purchases from many, many companies this is by far the worst.Read there reviews, lots and lots of complaints.So Larry stick it where the sun dont shine ,I'll go to Cheaper than Dirt ,Midwest or and other company,never ever Midway again ,nothing but incompetent jerks.Thanks for nothing"
"I hope others read this info unlike myself BEFORE ordering.Granted I only paid 38 dollars for a rifle bag. But for one I felt 14 dollars for shipping was pretty steep. Especially since the item only weighs 2 pounds.But no more than 5 minutes after I opened the box I was pretty pissed. I open the Midway rifle case so I can place my weapon in it and zip it back up. Guess what, because of poor design the case will NOT zip back closed. Even if it is empty.Does the words Quality Control still work here? I have not shipped it back as of yet but I have no intention of paying for return shipping either."
"Midway is selling what they present as General Dynamics government overrun ammunition under the product number 855219. Midway describes this ammo as being "loaded with a true SS109 steel tip penetrator bullet..." They present an illustration of it being a Canadian C77 projectile bearing a steel penetrator followed by a lead slug enclosed in a copper jacket. By virtue of both these descriptors it is explicit that the projectile contains steel. Unless there's some sort of new hi-tech, non-magnetic steel out there that only money thirsty companies selling ammo amidst a scare can get a hold of that defies the laws of physics by its being 100% non-magnetic; unless you want to overpay for steel-free rounds that you can get preferably elsewhere for less and want costumer service (for lack of a better term) to try to Jedi mind trick you into believing that suddenly steel does not have to be magnetic and that they checked your batch before it went out and oh how magnetic it was before it left; or unless you want to be made to feel like you're a liar who has nothing better to do than spend $500+ on something and then complain aimlessly because [we accept no returns on ammo so you basically are stuck with whatever we decide to give you in spite of whatever we may have erroneously described it as]... Unless you want to go through all this, don't buy these rounds or any other they present to contain steel at this time. "
"Been dealing with them since the days of catalogs and free shipping, i.e 30 years. Absolutely no problems. They aren't usually the cheapest, but they were reliable. My last order was for some 303 British milsurp that they said had been "sealed away in a British armory" and was non-corrosive. The cartridges had absolutely no headstamp. The Brits, like us, mark the heads of all their ammo. Also the cardboard boxes were totally unmarked. Again, just like the US, they mark their ammo boxes. So I am disappointed that they were so disingenuous in their ad. I gave them a chance to explain using a review which I assume somebody reads, but after two weeks nothing. Point: It is not British and should not have been represented as such, but it shoots OK and I just clean my rifles like it was corrosive which the great bulk of British ammo was. "
"Sent me the wrong item. I needed it for a hunt with my new gun. Now i'll just use an old gun. I'm currently on chat hold for 42 minutes. Phone hold was going to be approximately 34 minutes. Their customer service is a joke. Don't ever buy from these people. It's only a $20 dollar barrel nut, but guess i'll still wait on hold. Just b/c of general principal. Also received it 3 days after their estimated delivery, but wasn't a big deal. Just one more thing i thought i would list."
"I ordered 22LR on 12-05-2013was told and received emails that product was still on order and I would receive my product, also confirmed with phone calls to Midway.I have been a long time customer, recommended a friend to also purchase 22LR back before the price increased.He ordered his two weeks after I put in my order, he has received his order, and mine has been canceled.Called Midway and sales rep stated: we had them on order over a year, that was against policy, No Ammo, not even another brand.......never again,,,I recommend you make all you purchases with Cabela's.Even Kmart would be better then Midway! "
"I don't know way midway is a 1.5 star I've placed 2 orders of 1000 rounds of 22lr and i received the order within 2 days great company couldn't ask for more "
"Terrible experience on my first order. They tell me it's in the mail and never gets here. Nothing but a run-around and no refund. Decent prices but terrible customer service and you may not get your stuff."
"I've finally had it with Midway USA. This company truly doesn't understand customer service. I order thousands of dollars of firearm parts a year. I keep giving Midway a chance, and they keep screwing it up. This time i ordered a magazine well for a Glock I was going to be using for a three gun shoot this weekend. I placed the order on 1/2/15 and I paid the up charge for delivery by 1/6/15. My package did not even ship until the 6th and so i was forced to sit at my office while the business was closed to wait for the UPS delivery on the 9th. So here I sit in my empty office waiting for UPS. Well UPS didn't see lights on in the lobby so they assumed the business was closed and didn't come in. I got an email from UPS stating that there was a failed delivery because the business was closed. I called UPS and the lady was VERY helpful and said that Midway set it up so that i could not come pick up the package at the UPS branch. I was told i needed to contact Midway and have them do a delivery intercept allowing me to pick up the package in person. So i called midway and waited on hold for 10 minutes while i had to hear "Larry" tell me how much they care. So i finally got through to customer service who was rude, talked over me, and offered no help in solving the problem. SHE EVEN ARGUED WITH ME SAYING THAT A DELIVERY INTERCEPT WOULD RETURN THE PACKAGE TO MIDWAY NOT ALLOW ME TO PICK IT UP. I called UPS back to see if i heard them wrong, but nope. All it would have taken is someone at Midway placing a delivery intercept and i could have driven and picked up the package.I could go on and about problems in the past, shipping fees after the wrong item was shipped, requiring a signature for a home delivery on an inexpensive item that could not just be left on the porch with the other deliveries from Amazon....but this is it. I'M DONE WITH MIDWAY. Save yourself the trouble and order from Brownells. Brownells has great customer service and always ships on time. "
"I'm like some of you I have been a for a long time customer, probably like 30 years. Their prices are compatible, shipment is usually fast but their customer service and return policy are bad to say the least. They sale "some" inferior products with shipping cost and then if the product is substandard YOU have to burden the shipping expense to return it. Then they put stipulations, must be unused, like if you could use it you would be returning it lol. Must be in original container, and so forth. Think about it, you purchase a product for $30.00; you pay the shipping cost of $8.00, thats $38.00. The product is damaged or it's defected no fault of your own. Then you send it back, at customer expense. Shipping to send it back cost is approximately $5.00 or so, that means you have spent $13.00 and you still don't have the product!!! But, they will always thank you for your business."
"My order was canceled 30 days AFTER getting an email from them being assured that It would not be.I have been a customer with Midway for over 10 years but I will never do business there again.There many other companies as good or better who will gladly take my money."
"I ordered 22 bullets in Nov. 2013. They cancelled the order in Dec 2014 because they and I quote < "felt it was a wise business decision to cancel ALL back orders over a year old". Now prior to this I would call to check on my order and they would tell me every time that they were expecting them in that day. Seriously told me that each time I called. The day I found out they cancelled the order I went online and located the type of 22 bullets I had been waiting on for over a year. I have received all of them. Why was Midway unable to fill my order and then think so little of my business that they just dropped my back order. I have heard that I am not the only one that they have done this to. "
"OK, I have ordered several items from MidwayUSA in the past and have been pleased with the results. I chose to NOT pay attention to all the negative reviews about the company until I ordered several pounds (3) of powder for my reloading press. Now I see where the problems start. Below is a "short" break down of what has transpired with Midway USA and specifically their "for the lack of a better term "Customer Service"In short their Customer Service people have given me the run around about the delivery of the powder that I ordered from them. They told me that the powders are drop shipped from their suppliers. Then they tell me that they can only ship a maximum of 100 pounds (per truck) of HAZMAT Material from their location at a time. Midway USA sent me a tracking number for the shipment. Fine, only every time I attempt to track the package all I get is "Item not Found". Finally three (3) weeks later I get another e-mail from Midway saying the order still has a tracking number and is ready to be shipped, and because there is a tracking number, and the order is ready to be shipped that he order cannot be cancelled.To be fair they do have a lot of great items, but if you want powder or primers they absolutely are a waste of time. Will I go back to them for anything in the future. Not a chance in hell.Oct 23 2014 Received notice that he powder was in stock.Oct 23 2014 Ordered the powderNov 18 2014 Received notice that the powder had shipped along with a tracking number that only states "Not Found"Nov 28 2014 I sent an e mail requesting an update on the shipment.Dec 1 2014 Received an e-mail from MidwayUSA explaining their issue of only being able to place a maximum of 100 pounds of powder on a truck at a time. OH and the powder that I ordered has still not shipped.Dec 2 2014 Sent MidwayUSA an e-mail about my frustration and telling them that since the order has not shipped that they can cancel the order and I will go someplace else.Dec 4 2014 I received an e-mail stating that since the order has been assigned a tracking number and is ":ready to ship that the order cannot be cancelled."
"Had a back order for multiple boxes of .22LR ammo. Midway got 1 box of the 4 on backorder in stock, so they canceled the remaining back ordered items just to be able to get their inventory on hand out the door. They also charged me $12.00 UPS shipping which was calculated on the entire 4 large bulk pack boxes for the 1 box, which is absolute highway robbery and refused to change the shipping charges, or credit me back the difference. They basically profited off the shipping by ripping me off. I will not buy from Midway again due to these shady practices. The backordered items were on backorder since November 2013, so they sat on things a year. The cancelation and shipping of the 1 box was today."
