Somebody had to wrap it up, and place it in the out bin for delivery pickup...

What is 'their' time worth? Eight bucks an hour?

There is more to shipping than just the postage...

There is also a cost associated with packaging. They have to buy the boxes, tape, packing peanuts etc depending on what you bought as well.

Did you get it on time? Was it what you ordered? Was the price of the item reasonable? Did they tell you the shipping would only be $5 then charge you more?

I don't here many complaints on classicarms; one of my nephews got his WASR from them.

Two magazines for 13$ each. They charged 13$ at the time but I guess u expected it would cost something close to that. I know they make a small profit on shipping but a 130% markup is ridiculous

Well at least they didn't run, hide and cave like some other dealers did. I've never ordered from them, but they seem to be an up front company.

I've used Classic Arms before, and my experience was pleasant. Did they tell you what the shipping would be before you finished your order? If so, you accepted it and shouldn't complain about something you agreed to.

If they didn't quote you a price or say "free shipping", i think your complaint is pretty weak. Try ordering some primers shipped, then i will feel your pain on shipping. Hazmat fee is OUCH.

I just checked on their site. The have a very easy to see shipping cost estimator in their cart. They probably also told you what your total would be before you hit "pay now" since most, if not all sites that I have delt with do.
If you did not use the estimator, or look at your total before you paid, that is your fault, not theirs.

I can't speak for everyone, but if my order arrives:
On time
Intact
Correct
I'm willing to pay a bit more for competence.
Free shipping from idiots is a false economy.

My only real gripe with shipping is when my tiny little $3 spring or other itty-bitty part costs $6 to ship. I will usually add a few more inexpensive items to the order just to even things out some.
