WELL... my "excellent" 1919A4 kit finally got here. He received my Postal Money order in 2 days. My "kit and rivet set" was mailed Priority Mail on the 7th of March (after he told me it was going to be mailed on the 28th of Feb. NO email communication after the 26th of Feb. from him, despite NUMEROUS emails. Oh, and the kit and rivet set? NO rivet set, NO BARREL, the box was not taped on all edges, and sometime during delivery a hole was ripped in the box (guess thats where the barrel and rivet set went). Oh... INSURANCE? Yeah right, like he spent the $3 for that. He promised a tracking #. Did I get one? NO. If this is an "excellent" kit, I don't want to see a normal one.
I hate to be a hardass, but this was ridiculous. I am a 1919 newbie, and I had seen compinnovs name on other boards (weaponeer, gunco, 1919A4, others I can't recall) and assumed that his quick response to my emails DURING the purchase would continue after he received my money (2 days). compy, how about stepping up and at least answering my email or this thread and explaining yourself? Guys, I have to say avoid him. I am out a barrel, a set of black bear rivets, and received a NORMAL kit, NOT the "excellent" one advertised.
This was a BAD PURCHASE!
