Made a deal with DOG556 to purchase three Sheridan air pistols from an EE ad.
He stated in the ad that they might need new seals and I am OK with that. He also stated in his ad that two of the pistols were in MINT condition, the other one he stated was new in the box and he was told that it had never been fired, but had bluing fading.
When the pistols arrived, the first one was close to mint but would not cock. The "new in box" one was covered in rust on the steel parts (bolt - cocking piece, rear sight, trigger, and main spring retainer plug. The third pistol, one of the MINT ones, was in very good condition except for a rust spot on the bolt. Guns two and three appear to cock and snap OK. As you probably know on Sheridan air pistols, the barrel and air tube are painted brass so small chips in the paint are not a big deal.
When I called DOG556 last night to discuss this he became irate and shouted "This is Bullshit - Send them back" and hung up on me. I tried to re-contact him and left him a message to please call me back so that we could discuss this as adults. He has had no further contact with me. I am leery (due to his behavior on the phone) of returning these to him and not receiving a refund. Am I stuck?
