    Buds is probably the biggest online retailer. Never had an issue with them... Always on time and always as advertised.

    Follow their directions.. If there's a problem with a gun send it back before accepting it from the FFL. Also make sure to get your package fully insured.

    The only real bad thing I've heard is that you must not rely on the photos. If you want to see a depiction of the real thing, go to the manufacturers website and make sure you are looking at the same thing Bud's is selling. Bud's usually lists the manufacturer's model number so it shouldn't be that big of an issue.

    ps: I have looked at a lot on their website, but have never made a purchase.

    I've bought four guns from Bud's. I've never had a problem with the guns, the service, or the price. They are top-notch in my book.

    The reason I was asking is they have a CZ550 American chambered in 7x57(factory new). I have an old FN mauser chambered in that caliber, but I am reluctant to fire it. I don't know how old it is, it has the crest of Venezuela on it. So I was hunting for a modern equivalent and found it on Bud's.

    I've purchased a couple of guns from Bud's. Never any issue with anything bought from them.
