    Question Anyone use sigsauerusafirearms.com? Legit?

    Looking to purchase SigPro 2340 in 40 S&W, and/or the upgrade barrel from 357 Sig to 40 S&W for 2340 and they have used pistols on their website.

    During checkout they do ask for FFL info, but their payment methods are Zelle and crypto.

    People are looking for alternatives to traditional merchant accounts (direct for Visa, MC, Disc, etc), but I'd be happier if someone had some experience with them.

    Good, bad, ugly?

    This is the shop post, I'll put up a WTB in the classifieds.

    No experience, but only accepting zelle/crypto is BIG red flag to stay away.. Having discontinued and hard to find items in stock in another.

    What 85MikeTPI said - a big red flag.

    Reminds me of that video I posted the other day about the indians scamming the old lady.

    The site is fairly well done and convincing. But in case Noah and MikeTPI*s warnings leave you with any doubt, stay away*.. scam** do not use unless you want to lose your money.

    I've found a lot of sites that use brand names in their name/web address are scam sites - doesn't matter if it's guns, shoes, lawn equipment, whatever.
    They "get" people who are doing searches for those names and by offering really great prices on items that are sometimes long discontinued and will be found NOWHERE else online.

    Yes. The limited payment options make it look suspicious. I use zelle on a very limited basis, but it's only for people I know and when I pay them, there's plenty of the "are you sure?" prompts, leading me to believe there's lots of potential for scams. As liberal as PayPal is, they do have a money back guarantee, and I didn't see you list that as a payment option....so more suspiciousness!

    I know people can do it, but I have yet to purchase anything non-didgital with cryptocurrency.

    Scam site. Hope you didn't type in any of your info. Clear your cookies and website data.

    Thanks for all the feedback.

    Unless someone had done business with them previously and vouched for them, I wasn't going to try it.

    Another member reached out with a 40 S&W barrel, so probably go that route.
