Joining GUNCO just to show your ass in kind of TROLL like
When I ask a person who works for me when they are going to get something done, they don't lie to me or string me along. We all get along great. And yes, clearly I joined in February knowing that 9 months later I was going to complain about something that I wasn't even aware was going to happen.

This build is a hobby project that I trusted Stan to do, not myself! He will get it done, correctly, as his schedule allows. Several of my close friends have RPD's in the same time frame build as mine & we are not going to sweat Stan on the, "Are we there yet" questions! Rant over!
Yes, the 12 emails I sent over the 18 weeks he actually had the kit in his possession are what help up the entire operation. The gun is a hobby for me, but it is a full time job for Stan, so I would expect him to deal with it how I would deal with customers at my full time job. If his schedule needed 18 weeks to get the gun done, then so be it, but he should have told me that at some point, like maybe from the very beginning. Not a continuous change of dates and then finally telling me he doesn't know when it will be done.
Maybe he is honest and polite with you, he wasn't with me. If you get along with Stan and are willing to either have no communication, or get lied to when you ask, continue to do business with him, that is your choice. Just as it's my choice to post my experience for others to take or leave.
