    I'm going to buy a Trijicon RMR dual illuminated MRD. Midway doesn't carry that model.

    Anyone have any feedback on Optics Planet?

    I'll have to order the Glock mount directly from Trijicon evidently, and the Freedom Arms mount from Freedom Arms.

    Any other retailers you would recommend?

    Optics planet took 3 months to deliver my Safariland I ordered in December 2010. YMMV

    I bought a Meprolight night sight for a Ruger LCR from them. Arrived in a timely fashion. No worries...

    You can try www.swfa.com. Do not think they have the mount

    I've purchased holsters and lasers from them. Excellent service every time.

    I've tried. Every time I got an email ten minutes later than the item is out of stock but will be shipped soon. They either have the worst inventory management system known to man or are liars and deceive people on what's actually in stock to get them to place orders and hope they don't cancel. I have decided it's the latter and have sworn them off forever.

    I've encountered no problems ordering from Optics Planet on three separate occasions. They had the items I was after at good prices and shipped quickly.

    Thanks for the quick replies.

    The one thing that bothers me about their site is that there is nothing to tell you whether it's in stock or not. I guess getting an e-mail after you order is their system!?!

    I'll check SWFA, forgot about them.

    I have ordered Galco stuff no problem I agree their inventory stystem seems primitive. It never seems to show stock availability. I ordered a Surefire X300 and then a few minutes later got the out of stock email. I called and cancelled the order. No issues

    I think if you order by phone you'd avoid this. But if the CS rep can determine stock, why doesn't their web site do it as well?

    I had one order and they were out of stock (so was everyone) which I eventually cancelled.

    I had an order last week that arrived in days.

    I've ordered from them several times and had no problems. As for "out of stock" issues, I had that happen on one order. I received a prompt email informing me of my options. I called and they made a quick exchange which was shipped out promptly. No complaints.

    Excellent service but I always use "live chat with cs" to make sure item is in stock before I place my order.

    Much better customer service can be found elsewhere.

    I ordered a holster from them and got a notice it wasn't in stock after the order. I e-mailed them and got a response back (non form letter response) in a few minutes. Hassle free and a super quick response from them, I'll be ordering from them in the future.
