    Getting ready to order my rifle and pump and was wondering if there was any advantage to getting my goods directly from AirForce?

    I’m not ordering a Condor so i’m not worried about getting the new valve, but I have noticed a significant price difference between the shops and AF.

    I think the overall difference is roughly 50-70 bucks on an $800 order.

    I am getting the TalonSS in .22 cal, bipod, and pump.

    AF price TalonSS- 499.00
    Pump- 224.95
    BiPod- 69.95

    Compasseco price- TalonSS- 479.95
    Pump- 189.95
    BiPod- 66.45

    Would there by ANY difference in the product?

    Also someone mentioned ordering a Condor with the new valve and AF shipped a returned Condor with the old valve with the last receipt still in the box… 😕

    Thanks

    Hey Jim,

    Will be the same exact product no matter where you get it from.
    Give Steve at SS a call.
    His link is at the top of our home page.
    Good Luck.

    If you ordered straight from AF, my only concern would be the time taken in shipping. I ordered a simple fill adapter from them for my SCBA tank on the same day (a Friday) that I ordered a quick disconnect to place on my fill hose from another source in California.

    AF plant is only 350 miles from me, California is 5 States away. I got the part from California the following Wednesday. From the Friday that ordered the fill adapter, it was 13 business days before the fill adapter arrived….. 😯

    I called them twice about the order and both times, they gave me two different dates that they said the shipment had been sent out on. Actually, I don’t think it was ever shipped when they said it was and only after it was brought to their attention on the second call, is when they shipped it.

    I feel your pain…. When I lived in England anything you ordered would get to you within 3 days no matter what shipping method they used, infact the Post office would sometimes be next day just because the country isnt that big. Now I moved to the US it seems that I picked the wrong coast to live on as no matter what I buy… it seems to come from California and take at least a week and thats hoping they ship it the day they receive the order.

    I ordered a Night Vision by telephone…. took 4 months to get it, and like you I’m sure they only shippe dit after my last call because it showed up 3 days later fedex 2nd day…. 😕 Not the service I expect when spending $1600…. (NV and headmount)
