Bought a parts kit off an auction site a little while ago from RAPIDFIREPARTS seller Scott Goetez. Got the parts kit and it has missing/broken parts. Was labeled as an excellent shape, just needs reciever and FCG to build. Well that was not the case. It had missing/broken parts that where not listed in the ad. After several emails the seller did agree to refund $12 for the broken pistol grip he knew about but didnt mention in the ad. But will not do anything about the missing part, which happens to be a $40-50 part, which he also knew was missing from the kit and didnt mention in the ad. I stressed I would rather have the $40-50 part, but received no response to that. So I just thought I would pass on the info that we should all already know. Thats to make sure you ask questions prior to bidding on anything. Now I will admit I was late in sending the payment, I made a mistake and emailed consistently my intentions and apologized, sh#t happens. Wondering if maybe this was retaliation.

Just a fore warning if dealing with this person, ask all questions ahead of time.

I put the whole story on the my site for pictures , so you can see how it was kinda decieving.

Now for the ak build party guys, dont worry this isnt from the guy the kits are coming from. This was an individual person that I thought I could get a side folder from and save a few bucks. Just goes to show that I would rather pay a few bucks more and get it from some place I can count on.

Update to the site as well on the ak build party info.

What a SOB that seller.

This is the reason I do not buy on Gunbroker, unless it is a complete firearm and needs to be transferred.

What individual part in your kit cost $40-$50?

It was the bolt. The carrier is there, but no bolt. Which sucks , as I believe I ll have to head space it as well. Looks like its truely a "parts kit".

Oh well.

As far as another opening, do you have everything or need everything ?

Probably best to just email me. Check out the ak build and I think my email or ph # I have on there.
