XTreme Guns and Ammo is a relatively new vendor of firearms, ammo, and gun accessories.

XTreme Guns and Ammo has been in business since 2011 and, while not able to offer the lowest prices on the market, do have a great selection of precision shooting accessories, firearms, sporting goods, and more for sale from top manufacturers. They are also currently the largest dealer of LWRC rifles in the nation.

The Good

  • Good Selection
  • Impressive Reputation
  • Accessible Customer Support

Good Selection

The gun selection offered by XTreme Guns and Ammo addresses a number of needs and features some of the top firearm brands.

XTreme Guns and Ammo also sells a variety of ammo rounds that are great for pistol, shotgun, and rifle shooters.

Additionally, their shooting and firearm accessories go the extra mile and even exceed modern industry standards: this includes night vision lasers, range finders, thermal scopes, tactical gear like armor plates and other clothing, and much more.

Their freshness on the scene gives them the advantage of being more up-to-date on the needs of modern shooters. They also have at least one left-handed rifle model for sale.

Impressive Reputation

Equally impressive, XTreme Guns and Ammo has already established a strong reputation for expertise. They consistently employ highly knowledgeable, friendly staff members and salespeople, including a gunsmith who is always on-site.

Their employees have an impressive understanding of each product and are prepared to help both amateurs and professionals find what they're looking to buy in terms of weapons, firearms, ammunition, tactical gear, and more.

Accessible Customer Support

In terms of customer service and customer support, the shop rivals their more experienced competitors.

Their website supports an email form that works well for quick, simple responses. They also list two phone numbers, one of which provides all-hours assistance for both customers and shoppers.

The Bad

  • High Pricing 
  • Strict Return Policy 
  • Short Time in Business 

High Pricing 

XTreme Guns and Ammo's prices are, in general, much higher than their competitors'.

Both their ammo and firearms are more expensive, even when provided by the same manufacturers. This is in part to be blamed by their newness to the industry, but this still doesn't make choosing them over another retailer all that more attractive.

Strict Return Policy 

Even with their higher prices, they don't offer much in the way of a return policy.

They do not deal with any returns on firearms, and only rarely on shooting and sporting goods accessories if it's guaranteed through the manufacturer warranties.

Repairs are also only possible through the manufacturer. Though their customer service agents are better than most, there's not much they can do to help you get around this stiff company policy.

Short Time in Business 

As has already been mentioned, the fact that the company is newer to the firearm and ammunition industry does limit them in several ways.

Their store inexperience gives them a disadvantage when it comes to their knowledge, availability of product, and prices. They have a lot of catching up to do considering their competitors are all nearing the century mark.

The Bottom Line

For coming onto the gun retail scene so relatively late, XTreme Guns and Ammo has already achieved an impressive level of success considering its friendly staff/knowledgeable employees, customer service and customer support, and ability to go the extra mile with accessories such as tactical products and masterpiece arms.

The company also differentiates itself through its LWRC rifle selection. However, there are some purchases that one might be better off making through a more established retailer, especially when looking for the lowest price and the most forgiving return policy.

Ordered a CA compliant LWRC and have not been able to speak to anyone about the shipping status even though it said it was in stock. Still has not shipped to FFL and it’s been 3 weeks!

After a really good start and great support throughout the ordering process on a rifle in high demand I was encouraged and excited to place future orders through this FFL. Since Covid19, their focus shifted to in store customers. I have an order that's more than a month old still outstanding and cannot get a status update even after being promised multiple call backs, they NEVER call back. Its infuriating. They wouldn't stand for a business treating them this way, yet have no empathy for a customer experiencing such poor service from them. Mind boggling. They're probably pretty good under normal circumstances, but right now I'd suggest staying far away from this FFL. They not staffed to handle the demand.

In the last 3 months I have purchased several items from XTreme Guns and Ammo. I feel that the salesperson is making sure that I get what I want and that I am satisfied with my purchase. In the last three months I have had good experiences with both Customer Service people Thomas and Josh. They made my transaction go smoothly, making sure I purchased exactly what I wanted and that I am happy.

Odered some items that were listed as in stock. They took my $1400 immediately and nearly 4 weeks later I still hadn't received my order. This is very poor business in my opinion. Called to get a refund and was told it would take a week for my refund. Fast to take your money, never send product and slow to give refunds. Yep, poor business ediquit. I will not TRY to do business with them anymore.

Just bought a CA compliant LWRC AR15 from here. The customer service was outstanding. Chris followed up to let me know about the FFL transfer and to verify the shipping status, which was same day (and free). Best price I could find on-line. Their web site chat feature was also very helpful in answering questions that I had about inventory and my out of state purchase.

I’ve bought 6 rifles from them. They have amazing customer service. Every rifle has been sent with out fail within a day or two of ordering. Zero hassle and very competitive pricing. This place is top shelf and they have a great reliable business. I would highly recommend!

Folks, I just made a purchase for a LWRC 6.8 SPC A5 along with a SilencerCo SAKER 7.62 Silencer. This was easily hands down the best Gun Shop that I have ever had the privilege of dealing with. The customer service and flexibility demonstrated by this team of professionals was more than I could have hoped for. I have been purchasing firearms for over 35 years and this puts all other interactions a distant second. Outstanding work today, I won't forget it! William

Recently I purchased a LWRC SIX8A5RPBC16 rifle with a Geissele triger 5 extra 30 round PMAGs clips and a Condor soft carry case. I sent them a check for the total price and received my complete package 8 days later. Everything arrived in perfect condition, and 2 days later I put 75 rounds down range, and could not be more pleased. Oh buy the way the total price was considerably less than any gun shops, in Western Pennsylvania, quoted me "just for the cost of the rifle". Thank You again, a very happy customer John Shane
