I surfed the internet and found a store name " Alternate Sporting Service" from Europe. Their price on the bow I like is about 30% less than store in US. Have anyone buy from this store before? What si your experience? Any help would be appreciated.

it costs a lot to ship or receive something from Europe.
unless you already live there.

Hi, I buy most of my bits from them and have only ever had good service which is more than I can say from some UK mail order companies, also they price in my local currency. Plus the last order (Black Eagle scope) arrived in 4 days something of a record here. OK being in the EU I don't get hit for duties as I have to pay the taxes in the UK, so it would be worth checking what it will cost you to import and remember to tell them to price without the VAT.
Good luck,
Barry.

I bought a beiter sever tool from them and paid less for everything including shipping than anyplace in the US. It took a couple of days longer but they were good with communication and quick considering where it came from.

Alternate Sporting supplies

Thanks guys. Their price for a KAP Winstar riser and a W&W winstorm carbon limb is $245 including shipping and handling, as compared to $370 from a large US internet archery store. I think I might give them a try . Thanks again.

Correction : Alternate sporting supplies price including S&H is $285 instead of $245 as stated earlier, but still is a lot cheaper than $370 from Lancaster. Thanks.
