Yeah,but the new search function no longer allows you to search by parameters like cocking type (overlever, under lever, etc.), or others. Search for "side lever" for instance, and it doesn't show the Daisy 717 they sell. The categories are only manufacturer-specific, which I find limits my browsing experience. A "show all" button would be good in each section, so you could compare brands by, say, price. Or features. The "sort by date" feature seems to mean new models Vs. older models.
Overall good effort on the site refresh, though...

I don’t mind the new look. Being able to check whether something is in stock or not is great. Lots of electronic payment options too. A huge step in the right direction for them!

Yeah, a very large step they did! Nice to see the improvements.

And for the new website, there are many fine tunes they can take to prefect it out!

I found if other detail can be mentioned on the preview pages, like actual pellet sizes of 4.50 or 4.49 etc will be much helpful than the same general item info and the part numbers ~

Didn't have much time to read through the new website last night. I will try to buy something to see the difference of the whole process later ~ [emoji16][emoji16]

I found the new layout easier to navigate. I have never used their search function so I am not impacted in the change of that functionality. Really great they have started to use online payment not that I minded the friendly emails and phone calls about my orders.

Try again, it worked for me and it was pretty fast too. I tried searching for .22, JSB and got just the JSB .22 pellets they carry. Also did a search for "underleaver" and got just the under levers they carry. I used the following for my searches (without quotes) ".22, JSB" and "underlever", "under lever" also works but brings up a lot of other stuff because they have them as underlever on site description.

It looks good on the PC but is a chore to use on the tablet.

Yep Yep, you should send them a link to this thread; I'm sure they would appreciate not only the attention but also the feedback comments. D&L is a much-respected online retailer on this forum: a relatively small operation; it's unfortunate they don't have the time/resources to actively participate in the forum. Were I their PR advisor, I'd highly recommend it.

And, by the way, I'll also put my X on the thumbs-up comments about their website improvements.

Yeah ~ just sent the link of this post to Kelley! Hopefully she can have time to check the forum tomorrow (I believe after they evolved the website, there comes many new orders these days that make them busy ~ [emoji16])

I just found the search function is very good and useful ~ that's a very important part in the user interface!

And I also noticed some picture errors, I.E. Used the same 177 cal picture for both .22 and 177 pellets and the R10 picture on hobby pellets etc... I think use no picture ( or just the new D&L icon) would be better than a wrong picture in any case... I understood some times it will be hard to find a good picture with high pixel and in the same style of other items for use in a shopping website...
