Im Going To Poop In A Box! Aka another unverified member got scammed out of the USA

So I got my Magpul LM4 PTR from Evike in Dec. I live in Canada and the thing shows up a month after I paid for it. It did not get held in Customs, it sat for weeks at Evike shipping center before it was even shipped. I had to phone after a couple weeks to find out WTF was going on. I was shocked when it finally showed to find what appeared to be a new gun loaded with poor fitting Magpul components. The Pmag was so loose it literally flopped around in the magwell. I added electricians tape to everything to tighten it up. I immediately contacted Evike, but due to the Xmas holidays they did nothing. The gun jammed and double fed and vented the gas charge constantly. I prolly got a few mags of trouble free shooting before the feed lips broke. After Xmas I sent pics to Evike at there request and then heard nothing. Finally I realize my window to file a claim with Paypal was about to expire. I warned Evike I would file a claim and heard nothing back. The following day I went to file a claim when I heard nothing and to my dismay the time limit had expired. Evike no longer answered any of my emails. I was livid. I filed a dispute with Visa and they got ahold of Evike and they refunded me for the mag I had to purchase. They did not pay for any shipping, which cost me over $50.00 with brokerage fees etc. Visa contacted me and told me unless I returned the gun they could not help me and as I paid a small fortune in brokerage, customs and shipping to get the gun and was not eligible to get any of that money back and Evike refused to pay for return shipping I am stuck with a piss poor Magpul PTS. Thanks for making my Xmas so special Evike. Thanks for the great customer service and thanks for hiding behind ridiculous no return policys and a zero customer service policy. I will not hesitate to make all my future airsoft purchases from anyone but Visa closed my dispute because I did not return the gun. Also I feared retuning the gun to Evike as I have no trust in them at all felt they would try and turn this all around to make it my fault and deny me a full refund to further my loss. Just because Evike has a lower price, beware of the complete lack of customer service and read all the fine print when you agree to purchase from them as they stand behind those ridiculous rules 100%

On a side note I was going to take a big crap into the original box and ship that back to Evike. Thats what they deserved. Honestly if I lived closer I would be paying a visit to there store and would probably be banned from entering for life after the scene I made!!! Honestly the employees who work there probably get treated as bad as customers. The sooner people stop supporting these ripoff outfits the better.

Sad but true, over and over and over and over....

I don't mean to sound negative but, if you have taken time to read a fraction of the bad luck us Canucks have had getting hardware from evike, then you would have never in your right mind even tried. I am sorry about your gun that really dose blow. More to the point, you would think that the 'big dog' of airsoft state side would be better with customer service. Furthermore if they gave two shakes about us over here they would have some kinda Canadian counterpart for us to deal with to avoid all the messy customs bs. I for one will never, ever order from evike, and happily Canada is seeing lower and lower prices all the time, so I won't be tempted!!!
