Yeah, I think I can do that.

I can only use EMT though. I hope that's not an issue.

Cheers

Okay, I noticed your signature. EMT is good to go, pending my payment from work (in about 6 hours ).

I will buy the rail no matter what [referring to money transfer. Context supports this. Also, damage was mentioned AFTER.] , but in the event that I fall short, is it possible for me to cover cost of the rail (I'm assuming 165ish), and send an EMT the following week for the shipping?

Send me your info when ya can
Cheers

sounds good, EMT email is CHOPPED

one thing i have to warn you about though, some screws dont hold anymore, they lost some of the grip, so u'll have to use some hardware stuff or glue to keep them tight. Let me know if that changes anything for you.

thanks,

Title : Issues
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hey, just freed up some time to try and install this thing, but, it doesn't seem to want to stay.... Also, 3/4 of the side screws refuse to stay in......

[NOTE: The way this unit works by pinching the barrel at it's base (via a vise-grip mechanism) where it connects to the trunnion. It is semi-freefloated, which means that it has NO OTHER contact with the barrel other than the aforementioned. So, if there is any stripped screw in this area, the unit becomes unserviceable. Much more so if the inserts are stripped too. ]

I tried again, but noticed the rail's threads (and little inserts) are stripped aswell it seems. If it were just the screws, I wouldn't have a problem (gunsmith would've been able to take care of it).. However, this piece is totally unusable.

Listen, here's what I'll do.. I'll send back the kit, pay for shipping, and I'd only want 140 in return. I think this is fair, all considered.

Thanks.

Hi,

I gave u all the parts that came with the RIS, maybe make sure you use all the parts. About the screws, i told you about them not holding in and i told u that i could check it out more to give you a proper statement about its condition, but u told me to just ship it and u`ll have it checked out by ur gunsmith...

on what gun are u trying to install it on ? they`re meant for AK74U only..

i dont have any instruction manual about the RIS, maybe look if theres a youtube video about how to install it or something.

hope it helps,

Did you receive my pm?

Listen, I think I'm being more than reasonable considering you sold off a piece that wasn't serviceable at all..

$140/165 refunded, and it'll be shipped back on me. This is extremely fair.

Get back to me as soon as possible, or I'll be forced to take this a step further.
Thanks.

Title : Re: Issues

Hi,
sorry no refunds, i do not offer a return policy. I stated the condition of the RIS and u told me u can fix it with ur gunsmith, i even offered to check it out more to give u a more precise analysis, but u wanted me to ship it ASAP.

so, sorry, no refund.

Title: Re: Issues

You didn't state the extent of the condition. You only said the screws. If that were the case, then yeah, the smith would be able to fix it. But the threads on the inserts are bored out.

And I never said "send asap". I said "I think I can get the smith to work it out". If there were any doubts of this, as a good seller, it'd be your responsibility to inform me. This is how good trade is conducted.

So, if you're certain that you will not give a partial refund, I'll be forced to go to lengths which will ensure a full refund, and possibly some other headaches for yourself.

Thank you.
