This has got to be a joke... ?
1st off, I just arrived home from 5 days in Arkansas. This was relayed to Bushwaker and I told him if there were any issues with the TC what so ever to please contact me on Monday once I returned. What does he do,he posts this on the 18th knowing I would not be able to respond. Then IM's all the mods like I am not returning his IM's and emails. What a joke. Let me give you guys what really happened.
We will forward past all the dribble and get right to the deal. We agreed to ship/swap guns. He has recieved both the pictures posted in the original thread and the pics I sent after the fact, that I took for him at his request. Not only that but I asked him if there were any other pics he would like taken before the deal went through. He declined. SO at least he got to see pics.... I will get to the piece of junk rifle he sold me in a minute.
So we had a deal, and we "tried" to swap FFL info. However the 1st email he sent me had the wrong #. It was the voice line and not the fax line. Aparently this was my fault he sent the wrong # because he imedialtly started bitching that the info was not at his FFL like 7 hrs after the deal had gone through. So we tried again... After a # of cluster F's just trying to get the FFL # and info, I ended up having to call his FFL personally then confrence call my FFL, then walk the lady through how to recieve a fax. Aparently his FFL shares voice and fax lines on a switch. So that was the reason the 1st few faxes did not go through.
Then, my FFL F'd up and sent a FFL paperwork without the actual FFL # on it. That was not my F-up but my FFL's. I and my FFL apoligized to him and his FFL and were able to fix that problem immediatly.
Then, again on my FFL's side, he tried to ship the handgun 2-3 day. Well I guess you can not ship a handgun 2-3 day, and it has to go overnight. So the 1st ship was sent back, BUT went out the next morning overnight. and a new tracking # was emailed to him.
Now I have apoligized profusly to Bushwaker both on the phone and by email/IM for the mistakaes my FFL has made NOT ME... And he accepted it.
I made it clear in the original post I did not want to ship and wanted to do local sale. I decided to go through with this deal after making it VERY clear this was my 1st FFL transfer of a firearm and was very ignorant as to the process. He advised that was OK and we would work through it. You can see just how willing to work through this he was... ?
Now lets get to his rifle. He described the Cetme as excelent condition, perfect metal, no dents dings or scratches. Let me tell you what it really looked like.... The finish is shit. Looks like he tried a home made Krylon or park job. The only piece of metal in decent condition on the entire rifle is the muzzle brake which appears to be after market and doesn't even match the finish. The bolt and some internals are rusted, and the action feels like grinding sand... That is when it does not stick or jam just trying to rack it. And I have not even had the chance to actually shoot the rifle. He described the stock as like new OD green synthetic. Well not quite... It is actually an old black stock set that was painted with OD Krylon and is worn to shit so the black is showing through. He also described the mags as 1 used and 2 still in the original cosmoline. LOL, well they are rusted to shit without a trace of cosmoline anywhere on them. Oh and almost forgot to mention that the safety selector sticks..
Now this rifle is still down at my FFL, I only had time to run by and see it before leaving on my trip. I actually asked my guy to hold on to it as I was seriously thinking about sending it back and getting my TC back before any of this crap happened. I decided to sit on it till I returned because I did not have time to write up an email to Bushwaker before I left. Only to return home and find this.
Now EE rules state that there is an inspection period before the buyer can choose to back out of the deal. I am fine with that. SO Bushwaker, IF the TC is near as bad as you make it sound in this thread, why in the world would you take it out to shoot. Why didn't you just send it back at that point ?
He does not have a camera and can not provide pictures... I asked multiple times for pictures of the Cetme and he assured me of its quality which is the only reason I would agree to trade site un-seen. I will NOT ever make that mistake again on the EE with BW or anyone else. I would be happy to provide pics of the TC if the ones in the original post are not good enough. The only frame wear on the TC is from the action opening and closing. If the front sight is filed then that is new to me ? However... Again.... Why would you not just send it back at that point ??? I don't know what to say about the 7 wild shots and the mis fires.... Maybe you are just a crappy shot and using shit ammo? I have never had a misfire in the TC. HOWEVER, if there were misfires and you were not satisfied, why would you not just take that up with me instead of trying to slander me in the EE ? And why the hell could you not have waited for me to return before posting this bitchy ass whiny post for the world to see??? HE knew I would not be returning and would not be able to respond to this post or the original (which I have still yet to read.)
I have a 100% positive feedback here on the EE and have sold recently to the EE mods as well as many other AR15 members withouut any problems. I really hope some of you out there reading this will stick up for me.
You can imagine my suprise when returning home to find emails from 3 of the mods as well as other members trying to give me a heads up, as well as 6 new IM's.. (Which I have still yet to read) I was so PISSED when I read this, I did not want to waste another minute and not respond. I have been traveling since 5 AM this morning and it is now 1:30 AM the next day AZ time. I WILL be posting pictures of his Cetme as well as my TC for all of the EE to read as well as the ALL of the emails I can find with the incorrect info from BW with the incorrect #'s which aparently was my fault ? BUT it is not going to happen tonight. I wanted to make it clear to everyone that I have done everything possible to cater to BW and this is the treatment I get. I can not believe you would do this shit after I specifically told you I would not be returning untill today and to please EMAIL OR IM ME with any issues. NOT pisss and moan in a BS creeated fictional thread like this.
Brass, Mury and all the others who emailed me or IM expect email responces with pics attached as well as original correspondence. Notice BW did not bother to do either ? Yea that is because he is full of shit. He really needs to get off his anal high horse and take the time to read and understand the EE rules before he pulls this shit.
God I am to tired to even go into how he tried to make me pay his FFL fee and shipping and go find him a Matte Silver Contender sight base AFTER we already had made a deal... Yea Im serious. Not to mention trying to quote Dealer wholesale cost as what he feels he should get the TC for...
To everyone else I apoligize for you even having to read my rant and his dribble. This could have SO EASILY be resolved if he would have just contacted me but instead he choose the bitch way out. This has gone so far beyone hard feelings... I have and will re-inspect my rifle tomorrow but thre is NO DOUBT I am not in any way satisfied with this deal, and I will be sending your rifle back. Only differnece is I have not taken your rifle out and shot who knows how many shots out of it before returning it. Nor did I go on the EE and try and make you look like an ASS. Well untill this responce.
: edited for multiple spelling mistakes. It is late and has been a loooooong day. Not to mention how pissed I am.
