Default Classic Firearms ratings

Was thinking of buying a Carcano from Classic this weekend , but the latest ratings on their business practices are horrible ! Bought some guns from them, 7 or 8 years ago and they were top notch.Maybe they have different owners?
Seems that they pad the shipping charge now
Same ones for sale at RTI, for $30 less, and they are rated "very good to excellent". I have heard bad things about RTI also, that they overrate the condition of their firearms.
What do you think?

Caveat Emptor.

I bought a CZ75 from them several years ago from the batch they imported out of South America. My son ordered one a week earlier and it was a very nice 75B. The first one I ordered looked like it had been drug behind a truck over a bad road for a few miles. I sent it back and they exchanged it with any fuss and the one they sent to replace it was a very nice pre B. I can say that based on my own experience I am satisfied with their service.

Please remember that these Carcano's came out of Ethiopia and are going to be rode hard and put away wet. Don't expect to get a pristine example no matter what they rate the condition as.

Especially if you buy from RTI.
