It's a shop registered in China, so if you receive anything it will be cheap Chinese crap. (As expected for the price though)

It does tick all the scam site boxes so whether or not you will actually receive anything is the question.
-Website started a bit over 2 months ago
-No real shop, just a few "special" items
-No contact information, it's a Chinese shop but does not mention so anywhere.
-Links to Facebook/Twitter do not work
-Too cheap to be true.

One of the images shown the Caldwell logo on the side of the front rest.
I have to agree that it is a scam considering the price difference. This is from a well known online retailer.

I ordered something, not gun related, from a site that looked good on Facebook one day.
It took about 3 months to get it and I think it was walmart throw back garbage when I got it.
If it looks too good to be true, then it is.
I am not impressed by walmart stuff either.

I took two screen shots of the home page and the two Caldwell items and emailed them to Caldwell. Seeing that all Caldwell products are made in China, they mite able to get these scammers shut down.

The Internet has spawned a disparaging amount of online fraud and theft.

It appears FACEBOOK lets more and more scammers just come on in and post obvious junk or actually, no items at all!! THEN they beat me up for making a truthful comment. Hmmm???

I know where exactly each social media should be inserted so I remain far away from them. Looked at eBay the other day and was amazed at the obvious crap many are selling. I am not immune, bought a watch that checked blood pressure etc off ad on Fox News. Arrived over three weeks later direct from China warranty expired less than a week later, watch expired after two weeks. Oh well!

What I hate is all the “free stuff” I’ve won that keeps showing up in my email boxes...and marvel how they have it dovetailed so nicely to my interests so some of the stuff actually interests me!🤨

The good news is I know how my luck runs, it will be a cold day in you know where before I “win” anything, at least bigger than a free lotto ticket😎
