    Just for information. If you have an email blocker set up on your email you will need to white list us so we can send you the email. One of the commenters here that said they hadn't got a response has their email blocked. Our email even the one sent again yesterday was returned undeliverable today. Also to get the discount you are agreeing to get our emails. We dont bombard you with sale stuff. we average only a couple a month.

  2. Any discounts for members

    Guys sometimes your emails may go into our junk folder but most of the time if its a junk mail issue its ours going into yours. You can count on us answering every email we get that needs a response. Thats the way we do business. We do not monitor online forums and social media constantly and discourage its use to try and reach us. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. An email works best and if no response a within 2 days a phone call because that means one of us didn't get an email. I cant check on your status either as this form does not provide your name or email. Send me an email with the info and I can check. Your info with address is what you put in your account on our web page when you create the account. No need to email us that, just name and/or email and we can find your account.
  3. RTS3?

    We have had them back in stock for a couple weeks now.
  4. RTS3?

    Sarge, you get that price since you are on our sponsorship program for wearing our shirt. That was set up years ago and hasn't changed. I have not heard of an RTS3. There is a new model of the original cmore on the drawing board but is over a year out at least. The only reasoning behind that BF deal was I was prompted by a few people to do one so I picked some items and set pricing to create a frenzy which is what a BF sale is about. Unfortunately this industry does not have profit margins anywhere close to those of the big box stores. They may have 80% profit in clothing and many times will run a loss leader to get people in on electronics and such. So that's what I did on the 6moa rts2 and we sold out. No conspiracy on running inventory low for a new model.
  5. CKArms Competition ready guns

    Sorry it took so long to see this. I weighed one of the steel grips yesterday. It weighs .85 lbs or about 14onces.
  6. Yes, except for the discount group or dealers. So if we give discounts we cant also pay the 3.5% Am ex fees on top of it. SO its not available to those in those groups.

  7. Competition Belt

    Not sure who told you that, all my people know its not. I will mention this to them so they know just in case they did say that. Its not identical to any belt, or it wasnt when we had them made, but like our shooting bag I am sure somebody will copy it at some point.

    Some items are already discounted for one reason or another, some items do not have any margin to allow discounting. In this industry, competition shooting, many manufacturers are small in nature and already pricing the products well below what they would be in other industries in relation to the actual production costs. Sometimes the margins vary inside a single manufacturer so you may see a discount on one thing but not another. Many times this is because they are not the actual manufacturer but contract it out or are buying from another manufacturer and branding as their own. We do assess each item as we ad them and set discounts as we go. Some manufacturers do not allow any discounting, so we can continue to sell their products we must abide by their rules. If you search enough you will find somebody breaking the rules but they are not in this for the long haul like we have been. Our goals are future oriented not the here and now. Couldn't have made it 21 years in this business if they were any different. To take advantage of this you first set up and account on our web page and complete the address info. We do not put people in that group without complete information. If you are in that group and are not active we remove you. You do have to be logged into your account for the discounts to apply and you don't see the regular price unless you log out. If its a product that is in hot demand and nobody is discounting then its probably one of those items I talked about above and wont have discounts. Hope this explains it all.
  9. Competition Belt

    Sorry, belt is not the same as the CR speed. Ours is a little stiffer than Cr speed. Have heard of a few of the first batch keepers coming unstitched. No need to buy a replacement just make a note in your next order and we will throw one in the box at no charge.
  10. CKArms Competition ready guns

    Thunder and hardcore have different lightning cuts. Steel grips will be availble soon.
  11. Competition Belt

    Key to sizing is to measure your waist, never go by pant size.
  12. Competition Belt

    Thank You.
  13. This is a huge issue with target manufacture. The rules state the perfs can not be seen at 10 yards and they state there are to be no perfs on the no shoot side but on the border. (My supplier read "no perfs" on one batch and didnt perf the no shoot side. We did compensate clubs that got them with free targets to use as no shoots, as shoot targets they were perfect. That was a year and a half ago). I know some manufactures have made targets with full perfs all the way through all the scoring lines which makes them easier to see, but they are not legal targets per the specs. Getting the machine to perf one side and not the other is a very difficult task. And there comes the next issue with targets, the thickness in relation to cost of production and shipping. We did play with the idea of doing a thicker target to make it easier to perf but then shipping cost goes out the roof. We also were presneted Monday with a proposal to make a thinner target which would cut shipping in half but this would be harder to make the required perf specs. I am a proponent of changing the specs to allow the perfs to go through the no shoot side which would make production much easier and end this variation. For now we attempt to follow the specs as required and offer the best pricing and value considering all the variables involved.
  14. Now that we have a relativeley decent supply of CKArms I wanted to announce we are carrying these guns. The cool thing is they are priced around where a similar factory gun is priced but yet its the quality of a custom gun. CK also has a lifetime warranty on their guns. They also feature some high end parts that are not avaialble on the factory counterpart. Things like an Aftec Extractor, EGW fire control parts and many name brand parts. Where there was a lack of a quality part they have made their own top quality parts. Eventually they hope to make all their own parts in house. We are excited about this new offering at Shooters Connection. http://www.shootersconnectionstore.com/Complete-Firearms-C305.aspx?s=IsFeatured+DESC%2c+OrderBy+ASC%2c+Name+ASC&ps=24&m=162
