-1 for Rudison
I posted a 1911 slide for sale www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=119&t=311792
and Rudison immediately posted and Emailed an "I'll take it". In subesquent Emails he inquired about the scope mount that was on the slide, and asked me to also sell the associated red-dot scope, as part of the deal. We agreed on price and he stated he was sending funds.
He never sent funds or contacted me to "release" the goods. I only give him a -.5 because there was no real fraud or ripoff, just an annoying situation where I turned away other potential buyers based on his word, and now have to start over.
If this posting is in any way wrong, either technically or procedurally, or in the wrong place, please contact me and I will be happy to edit/delete it.UPDATE 3 feb 06
After posting this, he contacte me with a story[explanation] as to why no cash and no contact. I agreed to allow him to continue the deal and buy the parts. He offered to send me 1/2 of the $$, but I wasn't comfortable with that and told hm to hold off and just send me the whole amount. That was 2 weeks ago and not so much as a peep out of him since, so, as far as I am concerned, this deal is kaput.
Thus, I feel the -1 stands. Neither of us got ripped off [good] but he never said he changed his mind or didn't want it [bad]. He seemed like a good guy, and his story was plausable, but plausable dosen't pay christmas bills.UPDATE 13 feb 06
see below, this is resolved...
