Anyone else thinks there should be a pinned blacklist?

I had a similar issue with my ICS AK hicap, threw it against a tree and bob's your uncle.

Two_Zero, I believe thats a good idea but it has to be done carefully because while some sites are terrible for everything others are hit and miss on service and so you'll get arguments about what warrants a spot on the blacklist.

I think it would only be this lot on it. You can put someone like JBBG on there but it only takes a little bit of common sense to realise a sub £50 item is not actually going to be the same or better than a £150+ item..

TBH, Competitors in airsoft are few and far between. Most shops get along well with each other.
Some companies are looked on less favourably by other shops, but only really 2/3 that I can think of and they all have decent customer service really. (and no, I won't be saying who they are)

as Dev said, only SAS would be on the list and their website is a long way behind where most decent shops are now it looks dodgy anyway. a quick google search will return that they are not to be trusted with anything.

JBBG sell cheap shite, but their customer service is supposedly quite good.

Send the doctors home, I'll be doing the operating around here.

 

Resident Patrol Base Techy, any questions about PB, message me and I'll do my best to answer.

Oh for god sake....... I ordered with him last night stupidly. Few hours after I realised he never asked for a UKARA which smelt fishy so I done some digging.... by digging, google finished off my search bar for me 'special airsoft supplies con artist'... Order totally 165, in the pending stage of paypal which means i cant open a case until its completed apparently. Any advice for a moron like myself to get my dollar back?!

AFAIK, 'pending' means the account cannot accept/has not accepted the funds or doesn't exist. It goes into holding for 30 days and - if unaccepted - is returned to you.

 

Just make an email support request or phone PayPal and see.

So he emailed me back this evening, he seemed genuine, obviously it's hard to get over the overwhelming negative reviews this guys got. But he said he could post tomorrow, as the reason he didn't today was because I ordered the wrong gas and advised me which one to buy. But if I still wanted he has no problem cancelling the order. When I replied explaining I wasn't happy at the reviews I would like to cancel, he was prompt and very understanding.

Obviously I'm not going to argue with people's experiences as it may have saved me a lot of money. But from my experience, Mark was quite reasonable.

He is until you're a few months down the line and it still hasn't arrived, as that's when he stonewall's his "customers".

Not sure how the SAS association would feel about this bloke using the winged dagger on his website either... highly doubtful that he would have permission.

It would seem new people into airsoft where something is at first glance a really good deal. Only to then stumble upon complaint after complaint at a later date.

Ordered 3 guns from that shop this year and all arrived fine :)

 

I always use my credit card or paypal just to be safe with any shop.

He would only need permission if it were a registered trademark.

Pretty sure the winged dagger is, I don't know for sure 100% as I served in another regiment and another army. Anyway, I can say 100% that there would be plenty of guys who would be unhappy if a business was doing things that could be regarded as being of ill repute and using their regiment's emblem/name as a way to profiteer from this behavior.

I don't think it is. Look at all the books and dvds that use the logo. The wee r in the circle or tm would have to be on the cap badge.

fair point but this is a business so I think the rules are different. I don't know tbh but like I said if the business is involved in some shady dealings or has a bad rep, the guys who legitimately earned the the sand-coloured beret won't be too happy about it.
