I love when seller descriptions try to make a bad thing sound good.

Sorry I meant, does Ruben himself shoot the guns in his inventory? I thought Deerslyers head to head was very nice.

ppgcowboy,

 

Just to be clear, Dan mentions in the video that the guns belong to Ruben Mendiola.  Dan can correct me if I am wrong, but I believe Dan does function tests on Ruben's firearms for him and troubleshoots the guns.  There is also a video of Dan shooting the 8" barrel gun that was the topic of this thread.

Understood. I was just curious as to how active he is himself in hands on functionality of his inventory, or does he go stricktly go by a range report from gunsmiths. A few who are board members and I personally would consider to be very reputable.

i bought a M1A......AOC....from Ruben about six years ago and I am very pleased with the transaction. After several telephone conversations he discounted the gun to 15K (he wanted $17250) and it is very good. Excellent packaging and great pictures.I would not hesitate to buy from him again .

He doesn't. Unless you call $500 on a $55,000 gun (and I bought a few) a discount. Mine are more recent than 6 years ago.

I am a good haggler and couldn't get anything more that $500

I got a bit off. But I suspect only cause he had 8 of the same gun for sale.

In the past Ive tried to make offers, but was told the gun is priced correctly. In one of those cases he had the gun for 1.5 years before it finally sold. Its how he does business.
