Well, those prices are outdated. But, I doubt that matter

Anyway,yeah, I'm pretty sure once mark is done, ken's out too.

What's puzzling is... I paid 1980(plus $80 shipping) for a PTW M4A1 MAX '08... BUT, Anderson had the same gun, and same package (unlike ThePirate's orders, that come with alot more goodies... goddamnit) for 2,450 or something retarded like that. Doesn't make sense.

+1. If you want a price from Ken, e-mail him and ask. I find for me it takes 1-2 weeks for him to answer, but unlike Mark I always do get an answer from ken. Every gun I've asked him for a quote on has been $50-$100 less than A&A.

No, it means e-mail ken, ask for a quote, and be patient.

I've emailed, called, and even faxed multiple times since mid-October, and no reply. How much more patient can one be than that?

But no matter. There are other better sources for guns out there.

yes but that's not public, and will stay that way.

Ken will still be around guys, he's been around forever and he's had plenty of sources available to stay open that long.
If you guys don't like an extremely busy retailer who tries to respond in time, then don't buy from him, your welcome to buy as many $200 Krakens and cheap clones as you can...

You could possibly be anoying and Ken is chooing NOT to do business with YOU.

Never had any problems with Ken over the past 5-6 years of doing business with him.

Emails, I waited about 10 days in between. When those failed after about 6 weeks, I called a couple of times... When that failed, I sent 2 faxes, also about 10 days apart. I doubt I was overwhelming him in any way. I was neither pushy, nor demanding. Each email, I simply left a generic request for a quote on "Products X and Y" and left all my contact info, including telephone number. Nothing more than that. If that's all it takes for him to choose NOT to do business with me, then that's his problem. If he doesn't want to take on new customers, then he should just shut down his site and do business in classified sections of forums like ASC just like other "part time dealers" do.

Anyway, like I said, it doesn't really matter. I have more sources for guns now than I can choose from. I have no need for Ken or his astronomical pricing.

I never understood why people choose to thrash our main retailers... I mean yeah I have read about the A&A thing, but as far as 007 goes, I have nothing but good stuff to say. Never had a problem, and my order from purchase to ship was about a week, and I used EMT. He responded to all my questions about the gun withing a day or two. Thats just my take, Ive got no complaints.

Well, I'm not thrashing him. If I was, believe me, you'd know it. Just stating that he never replied to any of my emails or calls. And I believe I did that in a pretty calm respectable manner. He's the one who chose to ignore me, and that's his business.

And from the numerous complaints I've been reading around here, I'm not the only one it's happening to. Seems that if you're not one of his existing customers, he pretty much ignores people. He has the right to do that. But to have a public online storefront and do that is just bad business IMO. But hey, to each his own.

So while waiting for him to reply, I came up with numerous sources of guns at better prices... So those who are happy with his service can choose to continue doing business with him. I give me money to people who treat me right. He hasn't treated me at all, so....
