GUN :bigthumb: to Cactus Tactical

Discussion in 'On Topic' started by Market Garden, Jun 30, 2009.

  1. On Saturday morning I ordered a OD MOE grip from Cactus Tactical. I just went with the cheapest shipping, which was USPS Priority Mail. Saturday afternoon I got a shipping notification, and today my grip showed up! I've never had anyone actually ship stuff on the weekend before. Now I just have to wait for my OD MOE stock and OD rail covers to show up from Brownells.

    wtf. thought all their OD shit was out of stock :dunno:

    or maybe it's that they don't make an OD CTR, which would complete it. Maybe that is what it was...

    oh you're getting the MOE stock :o
     
  6. Yeah. I wanted OD and I really don't care about the QD mount and the friction lock.

    You might be lucky....... You know that Cactus Tactical is what is/was left of HD Rifles and Jeff Hicks?

    Somewhat sparse on info, but I can't find the call out thread I remember.....

    Seems like they do decent work for the most part, whenever they get around to it. Lots of people still VERY steamed over the Jeff Hicks deal, and how the rest of the HD rifles crew handled things (the other owners carried on the shop as Cactus after the fallout).

    Dunno, while buying a stock likely isn't a big deal, I know there are plenty of people who would recommend against sending your long rifles there.

    Just FWIW, I have no dealings with them.......
     
  12. Brownells. They're the falcon ones, which are the same ones magpul sells.

    ah. Cactus doesn't have that grip in stock anyways. oh wells
     
  14. Sure that's the same place? The threads talk about places called Cactus Arms and Cactus Weapons. The Cactus Tactical people seem to be AR and tactical gear people, they don't even mention other rifles.

    No, no I'm not. I assumed it was, as I didn't think there were many Cactus places dealing with guns stuff.

    Appears to be a false alarm - my apologies.
