Really poorly made site http://drozdcanada.wix.com/drozd-canada

But they have 68cu carbon fiber HPA tanks for $23 apparently!!

Just wondering if they're safe to deal with.

Thanks

Wow... That site was painful to navigate. Considering that those tanks should be at least $100, that seems really sketchy.

I clicked the link and waited, then decided to hit "Stop" to save myself the aneurism. Man, that website sucks.

Don't know where that site came from, but it wreaks of fraud, not to mention really crappy prices. This is not the drozdcanada site. The real site apparently disappeared after the embargo, and now there are at least a couple of sites out there representing themselves as such. The tank (Ninja, I doubt) is a low-pressure tank meant be be attached directly to the gun. There are more compact and economical tanks available from virtually any paintball store in Canada. The prices for barrels are about $50 more than what Replica Airguns charges.

The places to go for Drozd stuff are still drozdmax.com or directly to JimC for barrels and other accessories. I wouldn't do business with sites like this even if they shipped me the stuff first and let me pay for it 30 days later.

There is no "Drozd Canada"- the authorized importer of the Russian "Drozd" and IZH-Baikal products has a completely different name (IZH Impex), they do not deal in anything but Russian-made firearms and some (not all) of the IZH/Baikal airguns.

Here is their website: http://www.baikalcanada.com/home.htm

Thanks for chiming in everyone!

Yea, I wasn't thinking they were an official reseller of Drozd's, but I was just curious if anyone had dealt with them, seeing as the site seemed to sketchy looking and extremely poorly made, as many of you had pointed out.

That said, a lot of the great sites like SSSO and various other Canadian online airgun retailers, are very poorly made as well, not an insult or knock on those guys, it's just the truth, luckily though, they're more concerned with customer support and providing great products at great prices.

Anyways, thanks again guys! This is the sort of thing this community is great for!
