Tell me Knightone...if I said I wanted to get a .50 Beowulf and they were currently out of production, would you tell me I'd better get a .458 Socom while I can? Or if Olympic Arms was advertising their .243 Win models but never actually produced them should I go ahead and get another .223 because to do otherwise 'would just be a big mistake'?
My point being, you don't know what I want or why so to tell me what I should go ahead and get is missing my point I'm afraid. I assure you that it is completely insignificant to me that one might take down a door with one of their fine & sturdy M93 stocks, though I hope Magpul sells a ton of them advertising that neat little aside!
I don't want a Magpul for the sake of having a Magpul. I am interested in a particular model(s) for particular reasons that they advertised on their website for a long, long time and have yet to be made available. My problem (and thus the reason for my posting here) was actually in hopes of shaming them to actually taking the simple step in responding to a request for information since they have seen fit to ignore emails & posts in other AR15 forums.
In fact, the more I think about it, why WOULD I buy anything from Magpul if this is an example of their customer service? In my personal experience, Magpul has the worst customer service of any vendor I have ever engaged via AR15.com. They don't even have the common courtesy to answer a simple inquiry about a product on their website. Many of them in fact. Including this one!
Hey if they aren't going to build them, great! Why is it so hard for them to answer a question? If they don't care enough to answer a simple question - no matter what their answer might be - what service does that portend in the future?
I'd have to say pretty damned poor
