I have bought several guns from classic, all sight unseen online, all were old, used, military surplus firearms, i was very pleased with all, were they all like new? no of course not, i have a hard time with people ordering a 50 year old used military firearm and then talking down the seller when its not like new? this is used surplus stuff, there are plenty of hi points or Taurus pistols on classic web site that are new with warranty for folks that want that, if you like surplus guns like me classic is a great resource
I could mention another body part, but I will be polite and not do so.

BUT :!: Opinions are like belly buttons :!: Everybody has one :!: :lol:

The problem is when Classic touts them as excellent condition and you get a turd. Keep in mind that hand select is the best of 5 in the next picking order so if you got 5 turds up next you get the best turd for $20.

+1 on what Curly said. They are not gonna pick through the whole crate to find the best one, just the next 5.
Close enough for Government work will get you dead, ask any Vet.

Picky, picky, picky. :roll: As far as I am concerned, they can pick through the next 100. I will not be purchasing from CLASSIC again :!:

Granpooba,

Without proof it's easy throw stones.. If I ordered something and I got a turd I'd get a hold of Classic and give them an opportunity to make good. If they didn't I'd then post pics of what they sent me and warn others of what they are passing off and show proof so it wasn't libel. I can understand moving forward after a bad experience , but to slam a company without showing proof that's just not cool. These are used guns for the extra $20 you asking for them to pic one that is a bit better than it's peers, but you have to accept that the old girl that's coming may still be rather tired looking and not minty. If your wanting a brand new gun then buy a brand new gun. If you understand it's surplus then you have to be prepared that what you may get may have been dragged around behind a BMP and then put through the arsenal and somewhat repaired of blemishes.

Nobody needs to tell me to buy a new gun, if I so choose, and I have plenty of them. But when I communicate with a company up front, even before the sale and explain exactly what I want and they state that they will fulfill my request, then I expect them to do so. Which CLASSIC has not done twice now. Remember the old saying ...... Fool me once shame on me ....... Fool me twice shame on you ! Well shame on CLASSIC and one hell of a lot of people have the same thoughts and feelings about CLASSIC as I do !

One hell of a lot of NEGATIVE reviews out their for CLASSIC, not to be ignored ! :evil:

P.S. And finally, I feel that their is no need to post any pictures for you to see what crap looks like !
