I purchased a SW5 from C. Lawrence Troxell II. He said the gun was 100% functioning and only had a small scratch. I sent the funds received the gun on 08/15/05. The gun had a cracked bolt carrier and failed to fire at least 3 times out of 30. After I discovered the crack I will not fire it obviously. He gave a 5 day inspection during which I requested he take it back. Contacted Larry requesting to return the gun and get a refund his response is that Special Weapons guaranties the gun for life and they will fix for free. I contacted SW and they will look at and decide if it will be fixed or not. I asked him for a guaranty if they refuse to fix it that he will take it back or replace the parts that need to be. His response to that was (here is the email,,)
Look I don't havea computer, so it kind of makes it hard to contact you
soon as you email me. I have talked to a couple people and there is no
reason that I have to take this back. But, since I'm a nice guy, and I
have to register it and not be able to sell it for six months(by ohio
can give you a refund minus my expenses and the normal 20% that
else charges. Let meknow if this is whatyou want to do, and I will get
ffl to you
There was no mention of a 20% restocking fee and return of his fees during the deal.
I even paid over market value because of his description.
