Unhappy Image quality could be much better

I have spent countless hours browsing your site and something keeps coming up that I think others surely face: the images you provide for all your firearms are absolutely tiny. As a professional Silicon Valley web engineer, I can't understand why that's necessary.

Here's one example:

This is the actual content of this image:

The entire rifle is crammed into about 525x200 pixels. It's impossible to read anything on the side of the receiver or trunion. There appears to be something sticking out of the receiver through the bottom of the dust cover in the rear of this rifle. No idea what that is. Hard to make out what kind of texture is on the pistol grip. Meanwhile I'm trying to decide whether I should drop $1,700 on this. I've even emailed you guys to ask what's written on some of your other rifles -- just to fill in details an image would describe better. When I bought my last AK from you guys, I was surprised to see what markings were on the side of the receiver.

When we order something online, as opposed to buying something in person, we could really use more visual info to help us know what's going to show up at our FFL. Only good things can come from a greater quantity and quality of images.

Thanks from a loyal customer.

We have some of the best images on the web if you look at most other web sites they may show 1 or 2 pictures and most are grainy and washed out .If there are real important markings on a gun to be aware of we normally will snap a few but we can not take 50 photos of each gun. You are the only customer that has complained about the pictures and most customers write us emails thanking us for having so many pictures .We can not post huge mega pixel pictures on the web site it would make the pages load slow for customers on older systems .Thank You for your input but we respectfully disagree.

People on older systems need to get with the times, we're not living in the days of horse drawn buggies anymore.
