I've really tied to give Faxon the benefit of the doubt, but your customer service/communication is abysmal.
People in the group buy are reporting that they received barrels back today while I haven't received so much as an e-mail with tracking info OR an update. And I returned mine IMMEDIATELY, even posted about it here .. And despite being promised a "gift" to make good for our troubles, nobody received anything extra. I honestly don't care about extra swag, but don't promise us extra "gifts" to sate us while you blown past promised delivery dates and then send us nothing. That just adds insult to injury.
I have received ZERO communication since I sent my barrel back, not even a SIMPLE CONFIRMATION E-MAIL THAT IT WAS RECEIVED. All I have for that was my shipment tracking notification from FedEx which thankfully I saved, because I have no confidence I'm getting anything back right now due to lack of communication. Literally the ONLY communication I have received from Faxon is you sporadically responding to posts on this thread or over at the Grendel forum. And thus far even those posts have been pretty far off the mark, as 5 promised weeks have turned to 12+.
This has been a disaster, not because you guys jacked up the barrels, but because the customer service response has been well below sub-par.
I bought one barrel from Faxon prior to this and was very happy with it, but this Grendel one certainly my last. I will gladly return to companies like Ballistic Advantage that have never burned me. I tried to go Faxon because of the promise of better quality, but I consider myself burned.
