Default Riverbank Armory

Has anyone on this forum done business with Riverbank? I have been looking for some parts for a very early carbine restoration and I found one of the parts that I need on their website. I saw a thread on another gun forum stating that they have allegedly sold counterfeit parts in the past. I'd like to know if anyone here can vouch for them, or not. A PM back to me is fine if you'd rather not post publicly.

Thanks!

A common piece like a non-rare slide might be real. Anything rare such as flip sights, type 1 or type 2 barrel bands, IP parts, dogleg hammers, and others will be fake. Long history of selling fake parts under various user names on auction sites.

Thanks, Mike. The part I am looking for is on your "suspect" items list. I'll look elsewhere. I appreciate the heads up.

Beware! Known purveyor of reproduction parts & forgets to disclose. Post a WTB ad here on the forum marketplace or try Bill Ricca.
Good luck!

Thanks! Iíll do a search on old messages and see what I can find. I want to make sure that I only deal with reputable companies.
