Attention Collectors and Dealers who buy surplus firearms from Century Arms International!

Century Arms has the worst customer service in the industry!

Two years ago I ordered a K-98 German Mauser for a customer, Century Arms advertised this rifle as having a bent bolt. When it came in it had a straight bolt so I called customer service and they told me that I could exchange it for another one if I wanted to pay the shipping to send it back and that I would have to pay a restocking fee. I decided that I would lose less money if I just ordered another one. When the replacement rifle came in it had the bent bolt but it also had a big gouge in the stock right where your thumb rest on the stock when shooting – in my opinion this is not Very Good condition as advertised. So I called customer service again and after being passed around the corporate phone list and some intense negotiation Century Arms customer service agreed to send me a replacement stock. At this time two years later this replacement stock has still not arrived.

In April 2007 I ordered a Nagant Sport Revolver for a customer that was advertised as Excellent condition, when it came in it looked great but did not seem to function right and based on my prior experience I told my customer that we would have to pay the shipping to send it back and probably a restocking fee so he decided to take the revolver as is and get it fixed. My customer tried to shoot this revolver and discovered that the hammer was not hitting the ammunition hard enough to ignite the primer and fire the round. After having it looked at my customer ordered a new main spring and installed it himself – problem solved. My customer sent me a copy of the invoice – with shipping the grand total was $23.00 for the part to fix a revolver that was advertised in Excellent condition. Once again I called Century Arms Customer service to try and get reimbursed the $23.00 to fix a revolver that was advertised in Excellent condition and was told that they would not reimburse me or my customer for the cost of the part instead I was told that I should have sent it back, I then reminded them about the K-98 rifle and told them that I did not want to pay for the shipping and the restocking fee. After speaking with the customer service manager they told me that they would give me a 10% discount on my next order, the manager said this could add up to a lot more than the $23.00 that I was trying to get reimbursed if I placed a large order. So today 8/20/2007 I placed an order that totaled up to over $2,000.00 and what do you think Century arms said about that?, that’s right they said NO to the 10% discount. This leads me to conclude that there is no such thing as customer service at Century Arms International. Consider yourself warned that if you buy from Century Arms the items that you order might not arrive in the condition that was advertised and if there is a problem with an item you are on your own.

By the way since they did not honor the 10% discount that was offered in place of  reimbursing the $23.00 I canceled the order.

Quote of the century

"Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes you a killer. You can kill someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one is trying to ban you from driving to the ball game."

Andy Rooney said this on CBS as part of a great tirade.


It is this proud Americans opinion that if you are anti-gun you are Anti-American we should all be working hard to get the Anti-Americans out of politics. Register to vote and use the political system to beat them at their own game.


Since gun owners in Australia were forced by law to surrender 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by their own government, a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million dollars. The first year results are now in:

List of 7 items:

Australia-wide, homicides are up 3.2 percent

Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent

Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent

(yes, 44 percent)!

In the state of Victoria alone, homicides with firearms are now up 300 percent. Note that while the law-abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not, and criminals still possess their guns!

While figures over the previous 25 years showed a

steady decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed drastically upward, since criminals now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed

There has also been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the ELDERLY. Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense was expended in successfully ridding Australian society of guns.

You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.

During WWII the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!

Don't you think that we can stop terrorist the same way we did the Japanese?

If passing laws that ban guns makes a criminals job easier and safer then how much do the criminals pay our elected officials for this service?
