I bought a 4013TSW from them a couple of months ago and was very impressed by their service. They shipped very quickly, and sent email updates immediately (when the order was received and when it shipped). I would buy from them again without hesitation.

There are quite a few people on this forum who got their pistols from Buds, as far as I know they are all pretty happy with Buds.

Thank you all for the input. One more question. I had two local S&W dealers tell me today there is no way the $399 M&Ps are new guns

[quote name='choochboost']I don't know if its still in place but once upon a time S&W had a 10+1 deal going with dealers. If they bought 10, the 11th was free. Bud's buys a lot of guns. Instead of selling 11 guns at full price with the last one being 100% profit, they cut their prices on all the guns to sell more total units.

Yeah I know.didnt think to ask here first
Thanks again

according to my local dealer, at one of the SHOT shows, if a dealer agreed to take a certain number of m&p's or more, they could get them as good as buy 5 get one free...I wonder if he is blowing smoke...

75% of my current inventory was purchased from www.budsgunshop.com so I feel compelled to tell you they are fantastic not only in price, but customer service and that my friend is worth every penny you spend.

Buds - Somewhat disappointed

Their price was competitive. They shipped when they said they would. Customer service was certainly OK. Why the disappointment? Before I ordered, I raised the question about receiving a "late model" MP-40. I was told that their throughput was such that it was not an issue. So, I had them ship directly to Dan Burwell for his magic. After he gave it the works, it was shipped to my FFL. Only then, did I find out that I bought a series MPB. No REV N. So far, I like the gun, Dan's work is certainly over the top, but am not pleased that it is an early model......... without the mods that S&W's continous improvemnet program brings. Crap!

I have purchased 3 pistols from Bud's without a problem. My FFL dealer just shakes his head when he sees their prices and says he doesn't know how they're doing it.

Hey I was looking at that one. So you're the one who snatched it out from under me!

My MPB shipped from Buds on 1-22-07. At the time, I believe others were receiving MBJ's Rev N.



I have had no problems with mine, but had I known what I was getting I would have bought it elsewhere. Or, if I had not had it shipped direct to Dan, I would have tried to return it. I don't know if Bud's would have worked with me.



I suspect that if I ever buy another gun from Bud's, it will be a model that has been in production for years and one where "old stock" would not be an issue.
