    Being scammed?

    If anyone wants to know the name send me a wee pm and I'll let you know. Not comfortable putting it public right now.

    Being scammed?

    The reason I bought from him was that I wanted to buy local, I had looked at other sites but didn't realise just how many there were. I initially contacted him because I was going to buy a gun 2nd hand off another guy and the gun owner had put it into the shop to get it apraised before selling it. He told me that it was pretty much scrap then offered me a agm m14, which I didn't want. I initially wanted the g+p m14 but he said it was crap and he didn't sell it. I told him I would go for the cyma instead because I had looked up the agm and it didn't get a very good reputation. He said he couldn't get the standard cyma m14. So I then asked about the m14 ebr, then seen the dmr stock version which I settled on (he basically just sent me a link to iwholesales). I just feel stupid and regret not just going else where and buying the g+p that I initially wanted. For what it's worth I'm enjoying the cyma, but something just keeps niggling at the back of my head about it.

    This is true however I don't see anyone on here having any dealings with the shop as they don't trade online or by post (in reflection that is probably another red flag) so at this moment don't see the need to post a name. Like I said in a previous post I'll put the feelers out and see if anyone else has had an issue with them and if so I'll put the name up.

    In terms of the overpaying thing, I cant do anything about that now as I have already used the gun, I was stupid about it but have learned a lesson. I would post up the conversation but don't want to put names up online. All transactions were done in his shop (which by the way he was never in, I had to arrange a time for him to be there for any transaction to take place) and he issued a receipt so from my point of view it was a business sale. I will mention it to the owners once I have played there a bit longer so my word is actually worth something to them. The site pride themselves on the way they treat new players so if they were to find out they shop was run being run this way I'm pretty sure they would not be too pleased.

    I'll hold off on naming and shaming just now, I want to put the feelers out and see if anyone else has had any similar issues with him first.

    Thanks for the advice mate. Problem I have is the receipt doesn't exclusively say anything about mags. It's a hand written receipt on one of those pads that copies through. The fact he quoted me 210 then changed it to 250 is the only real proof I have. To be honest he was a nightmare to get a straight answer from in the first place and constantly changed or denied what he had said. I think I'll just cut my losses and just not deal with him again. It's a shame as he's the on site shop so is handy but if he's going to fleece me then it's better just staying away.

    The problem I have is I don't want to cause a situation either cos as I say he runs the shop on the site I play at and don't want an atmosphere, I need to see him every 2 weeks. If it wasn't for that I would have already told him where to go. I guess this is the downside to buying local. I'm not going to make this mistake again.

    Yeah that's the one. I do feel stupid as I also realised I over payed by a good bit however I'm chocking that down as a learning experience. I just feel he's chancing it now and taking the piss.

    The guns a cyma m14 delta. He ordered it in black then painted it, but the way he worded it was as if that was included in the price.

    Hi folks really need some help and opinions on this one. I am pretty new to airsoft and was setting up to buy my first gun so I got in contact with a shop local to me. Its not all that well known but the site I play at is very well known and has a good rep and he runs a stall there on game days so I assume that the guy running the shop must have a good reputation to be allowed to run a stall on the site. I contact the shop on facebook to get a quote on a gun and he replies and tells me to add his personal account so its easier to message. He tells me the gun I am asking about is no good and he doesnt sell it. So after a lot of back and forth and him offering me guns I know are a lot worse than the one I originally wanted I settled on another gun that I was happy with. He had initially quoted me 250 for the gun he was trying to sell me (this is the one i didnt want) including 3 mid caps. He then quoted me 210 for the gun I did want. (He also agrees to let me pay the gun up if I pay a deposit of 150 but thats a separate issue). So I go to the store with my 150 deposit and after a long chat I am ready to pay and leave, at this point he says I need to pay full price or I cant take it. At the time I didnt have the extra, I had already spent the money I had put away on other stuff since he said I could pay it up. So I pay the deposit anyway so he will hold onto it for me and i said i will be back in a couple of weeks to pay the rest. I go back a few weeks later to pay the rest and pick up the gun. At this point hes asking for 100. This takes it to now 250, as I said he quoted me 210 however I assumed the extra was to cover the mags and didnt really think much of it. I pay the money and he then tells me he doesnt have the mags in and he would give me them at the site at the next game day. So next game day comes and I go to the stall and he doesnt have them. Two more game days have passed and still nothing. So I messaged him tonight asking if the mags were in yet and he asks me what it was I wanted, I remind him its 3 mid caps and he replies with "Ok will get the price and message you later". Now I like to see the best in people and am generally quite trusting, but surly this guy is just taking the p*ss now?
  12. Hi guys. I am brand new to airsoft and thought it might be a cool idea to record my journey through the hobby. I had a youtube channel that I used to put some PC gaming videos on so I have decided to bring that back to life but with airsoft instead of gaming. If you would like to check out my first video then click the link and it will take you there. Cheers guys,
