Default The Sportsmans Guide Products...

The products that this website sells seems to be priced very cheap compared to most places and they are apparently the same products. I was wondering what some of you thought about these products that i am thinking about purchasing from them and was wondering if i would be buying crap or not. Here are the links. http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/cb.aspx?a=355982
Just yesterday both of these items were on sale for 39.99 each

I have had some marginal dealings with this company in the past and don't deal with them anymore. A year or two ago I believe they were bought by the French if that tells ya anything. I think since that it has been re-purchased by a US company, but I'm not real sure.

yeah, i was just curious about the quality of thier products because allot of things that they sell are so cheap. If it a name brand product how can they sell it so much cheaper than the manufacturer?

Now, I'm not saying you won't have a good experience with them; I just know I have not. I'm just one guy.

A few different ways. They buy large quantity of factory overstocks. The companies sell to them at a loss just to get inventory off of their shelves. They can then sell them cheaper because they bought them cheaper. It's cheaper for big companies to take a loss on an entire lot of items than to carry them over in inventory and try to move them.

They also likely get products similar to a store here where I live. They get prducts out of insurance settlements that were in semi or train accidents. Even if the products aren't damaged in an accident they still can't be sold at a retail store. The insurance companies pay out and then sell to these companies buy them for pennies on the dollar. That is why they carry such a variety of products.

they sell it so cheap just the way walmart does buy bulk and by items that are overstocked walmart will buying just ebcause it is cheap even ifthey do not currently sell it

i have seeen alot of there stuff is cheap but by the time you pay shipping your up to what it cost at the store

i know they have the treestand i bought at walmart 10 dollars cheaper butthey wont 20.00 extra for shiping because it is a big item andthen your 10.00 dollars over walmart before shipping
