    Ordered 1 skew (zombie green) pistol kit and a second lower. Was sent black instead and was told I made the mistake in ordering. Hard to do since each item has its own page to order from. Additional lower parts kit was not included but was sent (supposedly) same day as I made the call to make them aware of the issue.

    Any how, will be putting this together to see how it works. First glance, everything looks like its good quality. Will be testing the upper assembly with another lower just to gauge the quality.

    Outside of being told I was wrong in how I ordered the products, the service person I spoke to was helpful and responsive. Recommend calling to confirm you will get what you ordered online. Mistakes happen but the customer is always right… Just saying.

    I have couple of buddy’s that turned me onto thunder tactical, They had nothing but great things to say. well i decided to place an order. I even emailed them to make sure there was not issues with ordering the items i wanted. which one of the items was an 80 percent skeleton lower something i have always wanted to build. They responded to my email quickly and professionally. well once i received the package threw the mail. I noticed i was sent a standered style lower not a skeleton lower. No big deal thing like this happen, some one pulled the wrong item so on and so forth. i especially know this since im a businesses owner my self. mistakes will be made. but what really counts is how you resolve these issues. I can tell you not returning emails or phone calls does not help with business at all. I dislike how i have to go this length to TRY to get a response back. I just want the correct item that i purchased

    Parts look good. Not quality. Slow shipping. Poor service. Two of the orders were shipped with no flash hider. The company did send two new flash hiders (2 weeks later). A latch on one of the charging handles bent/broke the first day. The cerakote on the colored rifles is too thick and does not allow the magazine to fit in the mag well. The barrel on the AR9 does not have a feed ramp and certain type of ammo miss-feed and literally bend the brass casing. Correspondence via email is almost non-existent. On the phone, the tech essentially called me a liar and said I must not have a “Glock” magazine. I own 3 Glock mags. I have postponed my review for 3 months since the initial purchase to give this company time to respond to my emails and calls. I have given up on them responding… or correcting what I see as defects in products!

    Purchased an ar15 pistol kit and used it with an Anderson lower from Cabela’s and it works great. Now I have the tools to mill out one of your lowers. But I just received the jig kit with lower and I’m not sure how to mill out the rest after drilling it out with the top plate not having recessed screws to be able to router out the rest. Having a router plate With recessed holes and spacer would be a great addition for those who don’t have a full milling workshop.

    Terrible customer service. They will never reply to your emails, and don’t even bother calling because they go straight to voicemail. Bought a rifle kit and it’s been 2 weeks and some, processing has been completed for a few days now and it hasn’t been shipped yet. Very dissatisfy.

    Ordered a kit. Charged for it and sent shipping info. No updates since. Can’t call you or get a reply from email. Waiting over two weeks for a call back, an email or an update to my order. Nothing. DO NOT ORDER ANYTHING FROM THIS COMPANY. They take your money and provide no products or service at all. Will be disputing this charge with my bank.

    In the FAQ it explains there is 5-15 business days after payment before it will ship. It would have been nice to have that show up during ordering. Since they were much cheaper and had the items I wanted available I placed an order on Mar. 23. I was charged immediately and the product was shipped USPS in about 10 business days. I received the order in 2 days, but was missing an item. After an email the item was shipped 2 days later and I received it 2 day after that. All parts were of good quality. Order to door with all correct parts almost a month.

    I was never able to reach them by phone but the did respond to email. This was not an optimal experience but given we are in the middle of a pandemic and gun sales are at their highest, it’s understandable. I have placed another order with them, I’ll let you know how it goes.

Ok, So I said yes send the forged lower, finally bitches enough and got a NEW tracking number, they switched me to UPS next day air, but there’s no fucking point seeing how they still didn’t give the package to the goddamned carrier, going on business day 3 with a new tracking number but no movement on it, The employees at this place are a joke, DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS WEBSITE, DO NOT ORDER FROM THEM, TAKE THE TIME DO THE WEB BROWSING AND FIND SOMEONE ELSE, PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR

    I placed my order today for 2 AR 15 80% kits. I have already been charged and have received an invoice from TG. According to their front page, there is a 10 to 14 day lead time. I will give an update once I received the items. That should be 3 weeks.

    Placed an order for a Ar15 pistol kit.
    I was sent the wrong upper and the 80 percent lower was not in the kit. I emailed Thunder (sent pictures) and received a response that this would be corrected.
    Its been over a month since that last email and nothing. I’ve emailed them an additional 4 times and called about 30 times and no response. So all I have is a complete upper that is the wrong one and a a lower parts kit but no 80 lower.

    Like many, I have placed an order with Thunder, there were 2 items. I received the 1st item within appx a week, nice product. I am waiting on the second item, like a lot of you who have posted here, and like many I was getting concerned. Fortunately I have a friend who lives not far from this place of business and I had asked if he could take the time to pay them a visit, he did. He called me when he was standing inside of the building and was able to learn the reason for my item still on hold. Due to other suppliers being closed down or shut down due to this virus thing, they are having difficulty getting the parts they need to fulfill their orders. Advice to all, be patient. Thanks to the crew at Thunder!

    Ordered 7.5″ upper – stainless barrel .223 wylde. Received the package in around two weeks give or take a day or two. Yesterday (one month after receiving the upper) I took this product to the gun range here in south carolina and while preparing to fire i noticed the free floating quad rail was loose. Not a huge deal, but slightly disappointing. I fired the weapon and it did not cycle. Fired it a few more times and had the same issue. Upon inspection, i noticed that the gas block had been blown away from the gas tube. I pushed it back down with my finger onto the tube, fired the gun, and it cycled one time. Ofcourse, after firing once, the block was blown off again. Also, when pushing on the gas block, i noticed the flash hider was about two turns away from completely falling off. Very disappointed with the quality control of this purchase. I felt like some points of inspection were missed by the Thunder tactical team.

    I’m ok with waiting on back order parts. I’m ok with waits on assembled items. But if your website says something is in stock it should be in stock. Now I’m having trouble with the fact that I have received no less than three emails containing adds for in stock kits after I put in my order. And my order has not shipped. This is my first order with you guys. And I’m hopping all goes well with my first 80 build as I would love to place other orders. Your adds are great by the way. But I’d love to see some more powerful positive reviews/comments on this page. Maybe a more clear statement about possible delays in supply lines and some more constant contact updates on orders. Most of these nasty comments clear up with simple we did not forget about your order we are held up because of “x”

I was at there warehouse just today, and trust me they work night and day, and all weekend trying to get these orders out. As you are very aware you are not going to find a better price, so the wait is worth it. The quality you get for the price is well worth the wait!

Gun looks great love the finish. But I did have a few issues the hand guard bolts were never installed not a HUGE issue I know but all the same it was a trip to the hardware store. I would love to say something about the customer service but well nobody has ever reached out to me after email and phone calls. I’ll place a few more orders in a slower climate.

Tried calling, just once I didn’t blow the phone up. Don’t know what is going on really, the last comment on here is from June 30th and his order shipped on day 10, I am on day 20 and it still says processing. You think that they would fill there older orders before the newer ones. Well I guess all I can do is wait.

I sent an email to inform them of the missing items, now all I can do is wait. I am planning to record the completion of the build and post as a review on YouTube and other, new platforms (like Parler) where there’s no bias against content made by patriots. Will share the link on this board when it’s done. Hopefully it will be soon, fingers crossed.

    Buyers beware, I ordered an AR pistol (10.5 in keymod) kit back in march. Received it and it was the wrong kit. I received a 7in quad rail upper, missing the 80 lower, charging handle and bolt carrier group. I immediately took pics and emailed Thunder. Its been 4 months and I’ve yet to receive an email back. I’ve emailed them over a dozen times and called more than 50 times. Not ONCE have they responded.
    If you look up at the comments you will see that I made a comment a few months ago. Yup still no response. Horrible customer service, do not buy.
