It has some basic information the old one glossed over.
For instance, one of my guns has a carbon steel frame and slide with a stainless barrel.
The old site left that detail out.

I think it looks fine. Not becaue it has been revamped, but because it is easy to find what I am looking for.

I never could understand the fascination with revamping things, just to revamp them. In the case of a web site, as long as it is easy to find the information, I don't see a need to change it. There is nothing worse than going to a web site that really looks good, but then not being able to find what you are looking for.

But then again, I tend to favor the policy of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".

The linked Spec sheets have less information than they did before. New look but I see no real improvements.
Just my .02 worth.

This may be old news but I did notice that the RO Elite is only offered as a 5” 10mm now.

They don't show the RMR version of the TRP either.

No improvement, the Elite RO is kind of a shocker.

Yeah. Glad I picked up my full size and compact versions in .45 when I did.

Ugly, cluttered, disorganized. What often happens when a website is "refreshed" -- They take a perfectly useful site and ruin it.

Completely agree.
The more I tried to look at the new site the more frustrated I became!

Yes the old site was easier to navigate . I'll go with you on that . Other then
that nothing was linked together . The product pictures sucked . It was very
one dimensional . IE bland . Once you get the pistols and rifles click it all
seems to link well . Yes they seem to miss some RMR product .

The store tab is hidden as well that side bar should have all options simple to
see and easy to click on . I can say I like the direction its headed .


Love the feed back
