For those waiting for orders from me...

I had a large WGC pre-order go out in October that a number of people participated in.

I made this post to update everybody on the situation of it since it's been taking much longer than normal for it to arrive:

The package, due to the size of it, piqued custom's attention and they originally pulled it to verify the value of contents.

That took 2 weeks.

Then during the inspection, they were suspicious of some items and sent them off for examination. Some goods were seized.

That took 2 weeks.

The package was then cleared and sent back to the brokerage...

...Only to have customs change their mind and pulled it AGAIN for re-examination.

It's been 2 weeks.

That is where we now stand. Assuming no more problems, it *should* be arriving this week, but with the Christmas rush, I would not be surprised if there are any more delays.

I've already contacted those who had seized goods.
The goods seized were firearms replicas and the buyer had prior warning that there was the chance of seizure.
The rest of the goods should be okay by customs, which is why I don't understand why they feel the need for a reinspection, but yeah.
Just goes to show that even brokers can only do so much for quickly clearing a shipment.

gun fixing is underway. I started on yours last week, but been pretty backlogged due to lots of work and holidays. Once this batch of upgrades and fixes are done, I will no longer be in the business of gun upgrades and repairs.

It's taking time also, don't forget that ! We got a life to live on beside airsoft ! Upgrading AEG is a long process if you want to do it fine ! I understand the Illusion's decision.

i don't mind the money and will continue to sell parts and accessories, but performing labour on gun upgrades and repairs is not where I want to go towards.

Yeah, I did that for 3-4 years. It's just too time consuming. Average upgrade can take 3-8 hours depending on the gun and upgrades. Multiply that by 4 or 5 guns a week... it's a friggin full time job.

No doubt.

The labour itself, I can get done pretty quick.. typically 1 hour, with hardly any ever going over 2 hours unless it's a real problem repair or a custom modification. I charge accordingly, rather than a flat rate to make sure I'm compensated properly, but I end up losing a lot of time on consultation when it comes to this stuff. That's where I don't charge and it severely cuts into my time.
