thanks, no spring there, i guess thats why it was loose and jamming the stock.  seems to work ok without it at the moment though.  casualty from the spring chamge i guess?

maybe, when I finish work I'll send a pic of mine - tell me when you fully retract the stock does it come all the way out?

Well that sounds like a complete Clusterfuck on UPS's part. I hope you get your order at some point.   It could be worse - around 20 years ago (around the dawn of internet shopping) my team

There will no doubt be a few weeks of disruption and then things will settle back down. After the economic upheaval of covid I dont really think Brexit is going to be too bad in the grand scheme of th

Yeaman, so that lil black thing stops that from happening. When I get a min tonight I'll dig me MP5 out n show you if you're bothered. 

 

tbh, the stock feels solid, and only comes off if i hold the lever, i doubt i'll adjust it too often in game

 

im just glad it got delivered and sounds like it fired well.  chrono sheet is a solid 345fps too

 

thanks for letting me know what it was though.  it looks a little like an antireversal latch (in my inexperienced mind for teching) so was a little confused.

 

the grach came with one leaky mag from the bottom valve.  the two spares seem to hold (they both came with enough pressure to just about cycle once) but i have run out of gas, so i cannot check further.  slide feels very stiff though, may need some fettling

Parenting completed.

So, as discussed:

 

If you don’t have that piece I’m sure you could easily fashion one.

 

if the anti reversal latch looking thingy falls out when you retract the stock then that silver clip thingy is in the wrong way just keep changing it’s position until it doesn’t fall out.

Well this really shows UPS up. While I am nearly at the 2 month mark for my second UPS shipment I ordered some Mask cases from the US at the weekend. They were shipped by FedEx on Monday and have arrived this morning, 3 days later. So 2 months vs 3 days!!!!!

I've emailed the Trustpilot email address this morning:

 

 

Morning,
 
I'm sending this email as requested from a response to my Trustpilot review.
 
I've no idea what is going on, but after my review, the parcel went into "It's on it's way", but with no delivery date.
And then on Tuesday night, it changed to "In Transit" with a delivery date of Wednesday the 7th, between 8:30am and 11:00am.
It didn't arrive, and the tracking this morning still shows the delivery estimate being yesterday between 8:30 and 11:00am.
 
But I've just noticed it hasn't been scanned out of Stanford Le Hope, so how it was ever going to get delivered to a Reading post code is beyond me.
Please let me know when or if I'll ever see my parcel, as it has been 43 days since the parcel left the shipper.
Meanwhile I've had DHL, TNT and FedEx delivering parcels from Germany to here within 3 days of being sent - I cannot fathom what is causing the delays with UPS as bad as they are.
Regards,
 
Lewis

Good luck. I also responded to that email and although they initially responded it ended up going nowhere with the same level of capability as their customer service on the phone. I This it is only really there to make it look like they care in the Trustpilot reviews.

I didn't even get a reply from that.

 

Mines been in the wild for 57 days now. TG don't respond to emails any more and UPS haven't replied to my last three messages. The last message I sent (this morning) hasn't been delivered. I think UPS have blocked me. 😂

 

Raised a PayPal dispute a while ago and escalated it to a claim on the last day before it auto closes. I've kept TG in the loop, told them I would have to raise a dispute then a claim, regularly emailed and referred to the claim to try to get some action. The case closes on the 10th and they haven't replied to that either.

 

I'm guessing I'll just get a refund and occasionally see "held in warehouse" until the number just stops being tracked. :(

 

odd thing though. I've already got the refund from UPS. When UPS were contacted about the claim, they did reply. I can't see the reply but whatever they said, I got a full refund very fast. Getting the UPS refund is one of the reasons I think I'll never see mine. Better than being out of pocket though I guess

Well I have just got a 'Notice of detention for Imported Goods' from the Border Force today. I had thought that my UKARA had been renewed and will have to check this, then I have to write to them with the proof.

 

Of course none of this would have been an issue if UPS had done their job properly and delivered in a reasonable time.

Ahh crap. Hopefully you can get that sorted out. Will your local site renew your UKARA for you?

i dont know if it would help, but i have this bookmarked as a fall back ukara fill in? assuming that is the issue?

though buying ukara kinda removes the idea behind it in my opinion?  personally i wonder if its something up with the paperwork? as long as your ukara was valid at time of purchase it should be fine i'd hope

Well I have just double checked with the shop this morning and my UKARA is fully active. So after all the chasing by UPS to fill out the paperwork they have obviously failed to process this properly and now I will have to do their job and clear this with the boarder force myself. I don't know how much more incompetent UPS can get.

If only UPS were as responsive as UK boarder force. I sent the details as requested to them via email this morning and within 4 minutes I got a reply confirming my UKARA was OK and they would release the parcel. What a relief

Amazing isn't it? When we get the chance to go around UPS, it all suddenly clicks into place.

 

Bit it's not UPSs fault. It's Covid, Brexit, customs, TaiwanGun etc...

Genuinely pleased for you.  Hope you get the parcel soon.
