    Default Optics Planet

    Anyone have experience with them? I've seen them come up a lot but just had my first order with them. I just ordered some parts, a minimalist stock, new scope, a folding adapter.

    I placed my order saturday morning. Monday they emailed me asking if I was a terrorist. I emailed them saying I'm not within 15 minutes. Now it's been 2 days and still no update. I called them and they said they got my email, but there's no update as of yet.

    Was hoping to have the stuff by memorial day weekend for a shoot up the mountains with friends. I guess that's not going to happen.

    Donít expect anything fast from them. They often list something in stock when it isnít. I ordered a scope from them and it took over 6 months to get it. It was listed in stock. Good luck.

    I think I bought something from them a few years ago but my buddy tells me that they support anti-gun agendas so I shop elsewhere now. I did not investigate it as I have faith in what he tells me.

    I bought a couple things from them in the past. They sent me a damaged Sig Romeo 5, which took over a month to get. The other item I bought was fine and arrived in about 2 weeks. I don't use them anymore though.

    No issues the couple times I used them, but it's been a while

    Well that's mostly not good news. Thanks for the heads up.

    Log into your account and look at your orders it will list an estimated ship date. I ordered a fde scope and it went fron an estimated 2weeks to unknown, I emailed them to see if they could switch it to the same scope in black and they did and was shipped the next day. But yea you probably won't see your order by the weekend

    SLOOOOOWWWWW

    In fairness I haven't ordered from them in years. But based on other posts here, seems nothing's changed.

    The problem is absolutely no one else has two of the items I want in stock. Even optics planet has the black adapter as listed as back order, but the FDE adapter is listed as in stock.



    Then I got this email monday, which I responded to in 15 minutes:

    We apologize, but your order has temporarily been placed on hold. Prior to shipping your order, we need to verify that the ordered item(s) will not be leaving the United States without the valid authorization or export license issued by the U.S. Government. Please answer the following questions (by responding to this email) to aid in processing your order:

    1) Who is the end user of the product(s) you have ordered?

    2) What is the end use of the product(s) you have ordered?

    3) Where is the final destination of the product(s) you have ordered? (Please respond with a city and country)

    4) Why was your order submitted internationally?

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Once we receive this information (via fax at (866) 534-3097 or email at rm@opticsplanet.com), we will continue processing your order.
