Is Xtreme Precision a trusted retailer?

I just found a gun which i've been looking for on Xtreme Precision's new website. What I wanted to know is whether or not they are a trusted retailer. There not on the Canadian retailer drop down list, and I thought I heard something about them getting raided a while back????

Anyone have any info?

Haven't heard anything since the raid, but I can vouch that they are a great retailer.

If you have any doubts though, I suggest you just order in from ASCA.

It depends what you mean by 'trusted'. Peter Kang still owes me a working 12 volt battery, a charger for said battery and a 2500-round bag of .20 bb's from a PSG-1 that I purchased a LONG time ago.

Really? they don't carry guns anymore? It's a real shame to tell you the truth, i have had nothing but experiences from both Peter and Wess. Also their prices were second to none.

I'm sorry to say that I will never order anything from that company/person again.

I will order with no worries from ASCA and other retailers on our list. Anytime I ever ordered anything from Tru, it got to my door faster than the Canada Post tracking system could tell me.

I can relate. I have NOTHING against Wes who currently runs it (as far as I understand), but it's the company and the owner that I won't trust.

I paid $1200 at the time for an upgraded PSG-1 which had claims it would fire 460fps, fine for our field. That $1200 included a 12V battery, charger, bag of ammunition and a lo-cap. Fine, good, I paid the cash.

I received a very very well worn PSG-1 which was broken (cracked gearbox, many teeth were stripped of the gears) and no battery, no charger, a lo-cap and no ammo.

I called and no-one would pick up. I emailed multiple times, then received a nasty letter from Peter saying he was doing me a FAVOR by selling the gun for someone else. I don't CARE if you are selling it on behalf of someone else, it is YOUR responsibility, ESPECIALLY when it is the store that I had purchased it through. At long last, he sent me a 12v battery, which was used, and did not work as the four of the cells were dead, and it would not accept a charge. I emailed back and that was the end of it.

It was then that he stopped replying to my emails. I eventually paid $250 to AugMan to replace the broken parts and paid another $95 for a local hobby-shop to custom-build another battery for me, then dumped another bill on a charger.

No... no I'm not happy about the situation at all, and it's quite apparent that I still hold Peter and APEC/Xtreme Precision/www.air-soft.com in very high regards.

Shouldn't that say "I don't hold"? Not to nitpick or anything.

I think he means that Peter Kang is first on his shit list.

I'm guessing you didn't get a chance to do some cow tipping?

No, the fuckers were still awake and we didn't want to wait around till they fell asleep. Cow chasing is just as good.
