Amazon has hit these guys hard. So to help them out I’d like to post an email I received from them.
I hope this is okay. BTW, I have used these mounts and they work and look great.
This email is going to be different than normal, and I want to thank you in advance for reading through it. It has been a chaotic few days for us at Spartan Mounts after we were notified that Amazon has removed our AR-15, AR-15 + PMAG, PMAG 3x and PMAG 6x mounts off of their site due to restrictions on “Assault Weapons”.
Their updated policy restricts the sale of any accessory that is designed for, or specifically mentions 5.56, .223, AR-15, or similar. Because of this change, we have lost roughly 50% of our sales overnight. What makes this especially difficult is that we are in the middle of moving our manufacturing location to a larger space to better serve you, our loyal customer.
This email is not meant to be a rallying cry against Amazon. They are a public company that has gone the same way that many others have gone. A lot of our products will still be on Amazon. Although we strongly disagree with their policy change, the sales through Amazon keep the printers running and new designs coming.
Our goal has always been to focus our time and energy on continually improving our designs, turn around time, quality, and customer service. This is not the end of us, it is just the beginning. We have many more inventions in the works, both gun and non-gun related. At the end of the day, we love what we do and will keep doing it as long as we can.
The market for beautiful mounting solutions has not disappeared. Our customers are still out there, they just need to find us.
If you have read this far, I would count you as a loyal customer of Spartan Mounts, and I want to thank you for all the support and kind words that you and others have sent our way these last three years. If you love what we do, and want to help us continue to grow and design bigger and better products, I have one simple request;
Please consider forwarding this email to someone you know who may be interested in our products. We have created the 12% discount code “KeepItGoing” for you to share on social media as well.
Any shares would mean the world to us, and I want to thank you in advance for supporting everything we do here at Spartan Mounts.
