    ar15review - halp me help you find ar parts - updated

    So my site is up an running and searching for parts and pmags. I need a list of websites to search. So where do you fuckers shop for zombie killing supplies?

    www.ar15review.com

    New features and all that are coming, but I want this to be solid before any more scope creep.

    Broken - combination of weird html issues, lack of stock indication, and multiple products per page. These will be worked on over time.

  2. I always check PK first, because I don't have to worry about if it's really in stock if it's on their site.


    Also, Magpul has only 1 "l".

    Niiice.

    Are you screen scraping to get the info? Not trying to pry/steal, I was just wondering. Looks like this (and riverogguns) would be fairly big projects.

    You could also think about signing up for all the various mailing lists, then updating the site when you get an email from them showing in stock, since often times things don't make it to the sites...

    Neat site, and I think it's a cool project. No fucking way I'd make it public though..... I'd get an FFL and use something like that to autobuy whenever things are in stock.

    It's not very elegantly coded. Simply hard code addresses, grab the html, decipher if it's in stock, and spit it out. It caches the entire results page, but rather than updating on a regular schedule it only updates when you request the page. 30 min between requests. This saves bw when no one is accesssing it.

    I've got a pretty insane system for product information and user submitted reviews about 90% done, but I keep finding more to add. Problem is adding products mannualy as user submitted products would be a clusterfuck. May have to hire some indians for data entry.

    Really what we need is a system to call you when the noveske main page changes.

    It caches results for 1/2 hour so if you are within the haf hour, it opens instantly.

    Long term plan is basically a huge database of AR/shooting related info/reviews. Within each review you'd have direct links to that item in-stock. But we're a team of programmers and data entry monkeys away from getting to that point.

    Massive [perceived] speed increase. It now loads the prior cached version of the page, then refreshes automatically with the latest stock, if it's been more than 30 minutes since the last update, you'll notice the time stamp and inventory will change after a bit. This way you have something to look at while it loads.
