Beware of duplication with The Way West and Frontier Justice

"Beware that Amazon is trying to sell Guns of the West as a package deal with The Way West, presumably unaware that they contain the same movies. Guns of the West is merely different packaging containing the two 50-movie sets The Way West and Frontier Justice.
Here's a paste of the movie titles in Guns of the West from another site:
ACROSS THE PLAINS, ALIAS: THE BAD MAN, AMBUSH VALLEY, ARIZONA GUNFIGHTER, ARIZONA ROUND-UP, BATTLES OF CHIEF PONTIAC, BETWEEN FIGHTING MEN, BILLY THE KID'S GUN JUSTICE, BLAZING JUSTICE, BOOT HILL BANDITS, BORDER CABALLERO, BORDER DEVILS, THE BORDER MENACE, BORDER PHANTOM, BORDER VENGEANCE, BOSS OF RAWHIDE, BRAND OF THE OUTLAWS, BRANDED A COWARD, BROTHERS OF THE WEST, BUFFALO BILL IN TOMAHAWK TERRITORY, BULLETS AND SADDLES, CAVALRY, THE CHEYENNE KID, COME ON COWBOYS, THE COWBOY AND THE INDIANS, COWBOY HOLIDAY, DEAD OR ALIVE, DEADWOOD PASS, DEVIL RIDERS, DYNAMITE RANCH, EYES OF TEXAS, FIGHTING MADE, THE FIGHTING WESTERNER, FRONTIER DAYS, FRONTIER PONY EXPRESS, FUGITIVE OF THE PLAINS, FUGITIVE VALLY, THE GAMBLING TERROR, THE GAY AMIGO, GHOST TOWN GOLD, GRAND CANYON TRAIL, GUN LORDS OF STIRRUP BASIN, THE GUNMAN FROM BRODIE, GUNS IN THE DARK, HANDS ACROSS THE BORDER, HEART OF THE ROCKIES, HIDDEN VALLEY, HIS BROTHER'S GHOST, HITTIN' THE TRAIL, HONOR OF THE RANGE, IDAHO, IDAHO KID, JESSE JAMES AT BAY, LAW AND LAWLESS, THE LAW OF .45'S, LAW OF THE WEST, LAW OF VENGEANCE, LIGHTNIN' BILL CARSON, LOADED PISTOLS, LOST RANCH, A MAN'S LAND, THE MONTANA KID, NEVADA CITY, THE NIGHT RIDER, NO MAN'S RANGE, NORTHWEST TRAIL, OKLAHOMA TERROR, THE OLD BARN DANCE, ON THE GREAT WHITE TRAIL, ON THE OLD SPANISH TRAIL, PARK AVENUE LOGGER, THE PROUD REBEL, RED BLOOD OF COURAGE, RIDE RANGER RIDE, THE RIDER OF THE LAW, RIDERS OF THE ROCKIES, ROARIN' LEAD, ROGUE OF THE RANGE, SAGA OF DEATH VALLEY, SONG OF ARIZONA, SONG OF NEVADA, SPRINGTIME IN THE SIERRAS, STAMPEDE, SUNSET RANGE, SUNSET SERENADE, TEXAS BUDDIES, THE THREE MESQUITEERS, THE TWO GUN MAN, UNDER WESTERN STARS, THE UTAH TRAIL, WAGON TRAIL, WAGON WHEELS, WALL STREET COWBOY, WATER RUSTLERS, WHEN A MAN RIDES ALONE, WHISTLIN' DAN, WINGS OVER WYOMING, WRANGLER'S ROOST, YODELIN' KID FROM PINE RIDGE, and YOUNG BUFFALO BILL.
I'll give Amazon the benefit of the doubt -- some of these packages are pretty new and the seller hasn't had a chance to find out what's in them (even though other sites have, and offer lists of the titles, which seems the least a seller should do). I hope Amazon realizes what's up and deletes the package offer for two items that contain the same movies. Amazon, are you listening? What you're offering there would be a really bad deal.
Otherwise, the contents are what they are: old B-Westerns, some better than others but nothing that's going to rise to the level of Once Upon a Time in the West. If you like this sort of thing, you can't beat the price. I get a lot out of these sets, but I'm mainly interested in locations and can live with formulaic scripts and acting that would be bad enough to get you kicked out of the junior high holiday pageant.
Frontier Justice is much better than The Way West, but if you buy the whole 100-movie set you can see for yourself."
100 six-shooters (600 shooters?) in MCEs western movie compi

"MILL CREEK ENTERTAINMENT's GUNS OF THE WEST 100 MOVIE PACK is comprised of their FRONTIER JUSTICE 50 MOVIE PACK (from 2007) and a more recent release, THE WAY WEST 50 MOVIE PACK.
Prior to 2008, MCE multi-packs consisted of flip-discs. Their movies are now issued on single-side, dual layer DVDs. Thus, the first half of this set is flip-disc, the second, dual-layer. The collection's durable snapcase is the thickness of a 500 page book.
Transfer quality of these unrestored films depends entirely on source material. None are pristine studio quality but rarely are they so bad as to be unviewable. Certainly, the price is right for such a large offering of less-common works.
Several of the later Roy Rogers pictures in this collection were originally in "Trucolor." The b&w copies here are probably dubbed from 16mm prints once used on early broadcast TV. Despite this source material limitation, "Guns of the West" remains an excellent choice for fans of vintage westerns. It's also a fine introduction for newcomers to the fondly recalled bygone era of western movies series.
