Thumbs down SHOOTSoft Garbage

So I was looking for a new L96 and all the sites said in they're description of the gun that they now only sell with one magazine, all but Shootsoft, so I decide to order through them, Early December this is. Some weeks later with no updates on my order I become irate and ask where it is, it hadn't even shipped yet, apparently some BBs broke in the box and they were giving me 2000 freebies as compensation for the wait, time passes, I receive my gun.

Where to begin, after nearly a month of waiting I recieve: wrong color gun, barrel nearly falling off, BB's all over the place, its a mess, it doesn't even shoot nearly close to 460 fps, missing an aforementioned magazine. And a host of other niggling problems, I'm not impressed and tell them and send it back.

TO MY AMAZEMENT they tell me upon receiving it that it is indeed broken, and that no I cant get my money back, they'll replace it through TSD themselves, here I am nearly 3 weeks after this and still no updates and I'm short 350 dollars. I could have ordered the same thing from buyairsoft and got it in fine condition as I have before in less time than this fiasco. Any recomedations?

Wait for it from Shootsoft, or ask for a refund.

What other options do you have? Not much really.

Shitty deal, but I guess you just have to wait (even longer).

Get age verified and buy off someone a bit more legit than an online clearsoft retailer. If for some reason you cannot or will not get age verified, stick with buyairsoft, as they seem to have treated you fine previously. Keep in mind though, that previous performance is not necessarily an indicator for future performance.

There's more horror stories on this site about buyairsoft than shootsoft...

Doesn't Shootsoft use the same AV system as ASC?

probably because almost everyone on this site knows not to get from them now, the only people who buy from buyairsoft are people who don't come to this site. where as shootsoft WAS a good seller, but all i have heard lately is crap

Maybe because our customer dont speak here!



There was a time where shootSOFT was new and have to do is place! Now shootSOFT have more than 1 million page view by month!!

For your l96, it will be the same if you buy it on any retailler!! We have to ask the distributor before accpeting any return and have it exchange! There is also few retailers who we never give you warranty for it!

I have personally ordered 2 Items from them... first off was my JG Bar10 G spec which came super fast without any delay and no problems at all. Secondly was my L96 which I had problems with. I waited nearly 2 Months for it to arrive with no communication during that time period. Upon arrival I was greeted with a box that said "UTG Shadow Ops Sniper rifle" I was like WTF? I ordered the Well Version of this gun that came with a scope and bipod... So I just open it up anyways seeing how they are pretty much the same gun and to my surprise theres no scope. There was 2 mags but no scope which sucked.

I emailed them asking why they advertised it as something it really wasnt? No reply. I wasnt very satisfied after that and wont be placing anymore orders from them.

Never receive your email about this situation, when this kind of situation arrive we will reply with a solution!!

by exemple, Gundy G, could tell...

Yes He do have a trouble with is l96, and we always respond to is email! He could maybe tell to everyone it's &*%&%?%%&, and he could also tell we did take our responsability!!
