Well, you probably could have put the guy out of business and stopped a shiload of people from getting scammed, but ah well... maybe one day he'll rip off a cop or a mobster or something

My excuse is that he was willing to buy my guns. I was desperate, and needed to get them sold-FAST.

Yay and so ends another chapter in the dilema called "life and its lessons" next weeks episode is "I send $4000 to help a diposed dead Nigerian General's wife move his funds in hop of gettin $12,000 for my troubles"...

All kidding aside, glad this worked out to your satisfaction man.

This guy sounds like a real creep but in retail there is always a guy willing to hose you to make a profit at your expense!

And so you were willing to take a risk and deal with this guy despite his reputation. Sound's like you went out of your way to do so... then posted 'foul' when a shady deal is not satisfying. Were you just speculating on the AUG's condition or did you open it up? Did he tell you he sold something he alreay sold to you? etc..

I'm glad you were able to work out something in the end. I'm sorry if I missed something but it does not sound like a clear case of scamming to me.

Why didn't you do the deal with Beavers? If he's so Tight with you you shoulda had no worries.
Careful with your response now there is more to this than you may perceive so Honesty would be your best bet.

Larry has been thinking about getting more into the paintball market, however, he hasn't started* anything yet. I would have sold him my guns, had he been interested. He was not, so that left me with little choices.

I've delt with Larry many times, he has never attempted to sucker me into something.


EDIT: he has started , but only with some paintball-specific vests.

I didn't know about his reputation. I had delt with him once before and everything went smoothly.

Also he told me the aug was "brand new", and fired "great". So I put a deposit on it while under the impression that it was infact new, and fired "great". If that doesn't sound like a scam to you, then I don't know what will.

Sorry Kos, I didn’t get this info in your previous posts. You actually wrote…

which is an odd inquiry for a "brand new" item. I take it you now know for sure it was not new and did not fire great. You haven’t told us how you know this since you did not take possession of the AEG.

When I read this whole story it seems straight forward. You put $300 down payment on an AEG (+ mags, scope etc…) Later when you had second thoughts about this deal you emailed the guy asking for more info and possibly making accusations that the AEG was not in the condition he said it was when you bought it. If you have a receipt that indicates “new” you should have little concern at this point; but since no response came to your email you posted on ASC that you need help. I don’t think you even tried to phone the guy.

I grant you the guy at Hero’s overcharges his customers. I do not buy stuff there myself because I can get it cheaper elsewhere. I just can’t find any evidence in what you have posted here that he was scamming you.

Again, I am glad it worked out OK.

Aw come on Scarecrow, Hero is a great place. They sold me my first set of throwing knives when I was 13.

Last time I was in there, months and months ago, I asked Jeff where he gets his airsoft guns from. Which supplier, and does he mention that he resells them at a mark up in his store. He didnt appreciate that question and refused to answer. He needed to go sell a TM GBB to a couple ganstas anyways. At least I scared off some kid in cadets looking to buy a box of marked up IMP's.

O man... KOS thats pretty screwed up. I hope you get the shit sorted out. Heros Army Surplus eh? I'll keep in mind to never buy from them.
I do upgrades myself now, it's less costly and I know that no one is going to tamper with my gun.
If you need help with your gun KOS let me know. I work on V3 Gearboxes.
I have many professional guides on opening and upgrading your gearbox.

Hahaha first set of throwing knifes. I had a butterfly knife when I was 13. Not anymore though. Now that I look back at it it was pretty dangerous and very illegal.
Heros Army Surplus should be shut down, there has been some bad rep about them before. This is not the first incident. What are IMPs?
