    I was on their website the other day and looked at the catalog, but for some reason its not on their page anymore. They had some wicked good deals, and a huge selection. I was gonna look some more but, like i said its not their. Im no dealer or anything so I dnt know if that matters or not. Ive heard there a reputable company, but how do they sell anything when all of their product isnt even visible to the consumer? If someone could hook me up with there catalog or tell me how to get it thatd be amazing!

    Yea I know of their website, but in the catalog they took off they website their products was never ending! I should have saved the damn thing, but its obvious that they have more items than just what they show on that page.

    SOG took some heat from their FFL customers. If you have an 01 or 03 FFL, you can register with them, and get to the password protected part of the catalog- the guns. In the meantime, there are 5 screens of ammo and 5 of accessories that the unwashed masses can view. C&P from their webiste-

    If you are an FFL dealer, and would like to browse the "Dealer-Only" section of our website, manage shipping addresses, and manage previous orders, you may create an account here. Your account will not be activated for use until we have a copy of your FFL on file with our sales department. To expedite this process please have an electronic scan of your FFL ready to email or fax a copy to our 24-hour fax at 513.932.8928. Please allow 1 to 2 business days for account activation.

    If you are not a FFL Dealer, you may still order from the "Non-Dealer" section of our store when you register


    Have done business with them for some time, good company. Bought a lifetime supply of 8mm Mauser from them few years back. Actually, only have enuff until I am 99- will have to get more then.

    Ahh, good to hear. I was worried the op was talking about a more local guy here with store. Total arse.

    Area code is 513=Cinci area. Never dealt with them. They are about 4 hours away, so no wonder.

    I hope the op finds what he/she wants...:)

    Sounds like a royal pain to me.
    Suppose I'm not an FFL, I just want to browse the site to see what gun I want to buy and transfer?

    You might try registering and setting up a non-FFL account with them. I'm not sure, but that might allow you to look at more of their firearms but with retail pricing.

    There are few (if any) FFL's out there that are going to sell you the gun for wholesale plus the cost of a transfer. They have to be able to make a decent profit on the sale or they aren't going to be in business for very long. That is the reason FFL's don't want the dealer pricing displayed to the masses.

    Gen. Lee- SOG is a wholesaler. Many wholesalers (not just firearms) do not talk to, or give prices to folks that are not their direct customers. There are some 01 Dealers that are upset that wholesalers will sell a C&R firearm to those of us that hold an 03 C&R FFL. Not over the legality of it, but the business side of things.

    Understatement of the year right there.

    I did business with a local gunshop owner for 25 years, buying dozens of guns, accessories and supplies during that time. Spent thousands of dollars in his store. The day I told him I got a C&R license, he basically told me to never come back again!!! :eek:

    He acted like I was trying to run HIM out of business. The hell????
    And NO - I never went back....

    Highpower, that SUX! I have a local shop I visit once a week, and probably buy a half dozen guns a year from. The owner has a copy of my 03 on file, and usually offers me a discount on a gun purchase, since all he had to do is list in in his bound book as a transfer- no 4473, State Police check, etc. Hell, they called me to ask if I knew how to decipher date codes on a Remington barrel! You wonder how the jerks like the one you ran up on stay in business!

    Maybe he was just having a bad day that day or something, but it really hit me like a brick wall because it just came out of the blue. I started off buying from them when his father ran the business and "dad" was as cut throat as you can get. But the son saw me in there often and soon started to make a bee-line toward me whenever I walked in the door, and shooed his dad away.

    Over the years we established a great relationship and the son would give me a considerable discount on everything I bought, because of the volume of business I gave them. He took over the shop when his dad passed away.

    On that one day however I made the mistake of asking him if he would keep my FFL on file in order to forgo the usual paperwork and NICS call on any future C&R purchases from them. I was more than willing to pay them their usual prices and just wanted to cut the extra red tape in order to save time, and just make the process easier. But I think he took it as I was trying to get the guns at cost from him, and that of course would have been the ultimate insult.

    But the manor in which he spoke to me after that insured that he lost me as a customer for life. I then moved on to another local dealer and got pretty much the same response. I don't know if it is a local issue or just the fact that many 01 FFL's don't have a clue regarding what a C&R is all about. An 03 FFL in their eyes purchasing a C&R weapon are no different than an everyday retail customer and will be treated as such - no exceptions. And while they are perfectly within the regulations to do so, they certainly don't need to be such a **** about it.

    I was trying to find a Tokarev TT33 on SOG's website the other day. I was unable to browse the catalog, but i did find that it could be searched by typing in something like tokarev or cz-52. Century's site has a hard to see link for their catalog, no prices listed. I don't think SOG had prices when i did see the Tokarev, lemme check.

    edit* I was wrong, SOG does show a price: http://www.southernohiogun.com/catalogsearch/result/?q=tokarev

    Search block, top right corner.

    Been there many times in the past when I had an FFL.
    They are in Lebanon, Oh on Rt.73 w.
    Lots to pick from and good prices.
    They seem to lean towards the import stuff.
