Sorry but this is not really about the handguards since I never received them from the gentleman I ordered them from.
This gentleman replied to a post about M33s that he could sell M44s below retail, quoted me 100.00 + shipping, let me know they were available, I sent payment. Almost 3 weeks later and several emails still no handguards. On the 29th of April I get an email saying they had been returned and they would be resent out. Still no handguards, no replies to emails, IM, and his cell phone says its not in its coverage area. I have tried contacting him though his own dealer website/emails with no reply.
I know the fellow is still around, he is using this site and still making posts but will not reply to me.
Sorry if you felt this doesnt belong or wasted you time BUT I just wanted to let it out.
