I think that is everything lol, wow , you don't realize how much you bought until you list it like that...
So like I said I have been dealing with Frontier for about 14 months now, and I will now let you know what I think and let you know what other experiences I had with other dealers but will not mention their names as I dont want to turn this into a bashing thread.
When I first started ordering from Frontier my intial reasoning was that I dont like putting stuff on my credit card and their EMT method was a good option for me. I was impressed with their customer service skills from day 1 , I will take good costomer service over saving a few bucks any day. I have never waited more then 1 day for a reply from their email and I usually hear back the same day if not within a couple hours. they have always been very friendly and shown that they appreciate my business .
I had other dealers give off the impression that they could care less if they get my business or not , which makes no sense(ex: I was looking at a stock on another dealers site, but all they had was a basic discription , so I emailed them to see if it was what I was looking for , they gave me another email to contact to get a photo and to this day , nothing) . and looking at what I have purchased from Frontier, looks like they missed out .
When placing orders with frontier ,I know that day that my payment made it and that it will be shipped out right away( could be the next day or after depending when they are shipping) and I usually recieve imy order 4-5days later , never waited more.
Now I have had some hiccups with ordering from them but I dont feel it was their fault in my honest opinion, but I will list them here:
I was ording almost daily last year at this time and put in a order for the Millet scope listed above , I was away at the time so I couldn't check right away but when I was able to the scope wasn't there , I contacted Frontier and told them what was up and they looked into it and indeed they didn't ship it .Now I will mention again I was ordering alot at the time and wasn't upset at all since they had to deal with alot of orders from me alone , then add in other customers , something is going to slip through the cracks. They appologized and shipped the scope out the next day(once again within the week I had it in hand.
The green laser I ordered , had the wrong mount and worked intermittedly , I contacted them and got the right mount sent out . I figured the other problem was just a bad battery but when I was able to get another one it wasn't , they were more then willing to replace it but I never did cause I was being lazy (so it is all on me I still dont have a working laser not that I really need it lol)
Now the last thing isn't any fault of Frontier in any way but I will list it because of the solution. I asked Frontier to get in a Ruger M77 Hawkeye predator .223 last november and they ordered it for me , I put down some money for it with the knowledge that it was going to be atleast 3 months to get it in . Now as many of you know Ruger was having that mad sales push and that Rugers were becoming near impossible to get in Canada . So 3 months past , then 6 and more . I contacted Frontier and told them I knew it wasn't their fault in any way but was there a chance I could transfer the down payment to another firearm , which they told me it was no problem. So we did that and I am now one small payment away from owning a Marlin 1895 which I look forward to shooting this xmas with my father who I know will enjoy it. I told them I will still likely buy the ruger when it comes in ,so they are keeping me in the loop on that .
Now I dont buy everything from Frontier but if they carry it I will go to them first .stuff like cartridges and targets I usually go into stores and purchase over the counter just because it is easy .
I am very pleased with all my dealings with the guys at Frontier , and plan to be a customer for years to come. They have top notch customer service as mentioned and I feel they will always go out of the way for customers.
Frontier Firearms: Thank you for the service you have alway provided me and I am sure will continue to provide in the future
