    it is a phony site designed to look like the official. but the seller seems quite legitimate, even though apparently he's not an authorised reseller as he claims since i don't see him in the official r4ds reseller list

    I've seen this guy advertising on the official R4 forums and nobody was complaining about his service there... And if it was a scam why would he show the items as Out of Stock?

    I think I did anyway... It could have been another site but it looked like this.

    Lol, yeah he just makes it look like he is selling stuff into fooling users a few months down the line that he was out of stock on items he wasn't really selling just to scam a few users out of 50 bucks that he could have made putting the item up on the site for sale without having it be out of stock for the time being of where it looks really legit but users still question it.

    Got all that?

    Lol, this is just a reseller who has a smilar name to draw in uk users. I would bet he is a 100% legit as sinkhead said I don't know of many scammers who go "out-of-stock" lol.

    Yes this site should be an authorised seller (I will officially confirm).
    Its not part of the R4 scene, just a site to buy from.

    And yes, you're right, it was specifically for UK buyers because of the lack of local availability.
