I placed an order for an extended Benelli charging handle on Wednesday, 6/26. I requested that it be shipped next day so I would have it Thursday because I was leaving for the Hun Shoot on Friday. I never received an e-mail confirmation for my order. I e-mailed tham and I told them that I must have it by Thursday. On Thursday I had no package so I sent them an e-mail letting them know I wanted to cancel the order. Well, today (7/31) I find a package on my doorstep for the charging handle. They shipped it FedEx ground. I also see on the invoice that they didn't process the order until 7/18. It only took them 23 days to process my order. Maybe they were out of stock. An e-mail would have been appreciated in that case, but they apparently don't check their e-mail. If they did, they would have cancelled my order.

Bunghole, if you wish, post on this topic again if you receive communications from the vendor, and the matter is brought to a conclusion. Again, this is general policy for all vendors, not just advertisers.

I hope the customer service improves, I need to order some parts from them tomorrow. I'm going to make sure that they have the parts in stock before I place the order, will ask that they confirm order and shipment, and will let you guys know how it turns out.

Okay, they're out of stock on the items I wanted, so I'll have to look elsewhere.

Okay, I'm using my 'powers that be' to unlock this thread. Folks, you can't rely on e-mail as a surefire method to correct an order problem. If you have a problem or special stipulations like above you pretty much have to call. If you were dealing with some of our Equip. Exchange guys then it would be a little different because probably 90% of their dealings are via e-mail and they're used to it. You guys have to understand that the large [b]companies[/b] do the majority of business by phone or with wholesalers or businesses so the smaller deals get a little less attention. SO, if you do have a problem or have special requirements use the phone so you can hold someone a little more accountable.

I have had five separate dealings with GG&G. Each one has been positive as I recollect. One item that I ordered took 10 months for delivery, this item is only manufactured once a year. I knew this up front and was willing to wait. I would deal with them again when the need arises, without hesitation.

ilikelegs, I'm going to keep it. I still needed that part. What kind of pissed me off was the fact that when ordering online their website says that you will receive an e-mail confirmation of your order. I didn't get an e-mail on the day I ordered or 23 days later when they processed the order.

IATL! Always wanted to say that. I would call them and demand an explanation as to why the emails went unanswered for that long a period of time. Of course they could always blame the mail server. That seems to be a popular eXcuse.

This post was not intended as a flame. I just like to post some of the mundane shit that goes on in my life sometimes.

Just to note, I ain't defending anybody, I'm all for letting G,G&G (or whoever) know about a problem. If there's been a slip up you should let somebody know, afterall, it may help prevent future mix-ups. I just think a phone conversation will yield better results (in most cases [;)]).

GG&G makes good stuff... As far as company, they stink. We tried to order 15 canteliver mounts... They were out and expect to have them in-stock... well they didn't know. Tried to order back-up sights, they were out of those too. We sent in all the paperwork and this is the company that makes the stuff. We ordered from Knight's instead.
