Boycott Max Anodizing

Ok, so, last month I made a deal with a great trader on this community (who shall remain nameless) for any anno of my choice for my Proto Matrix, and $380 for my Legacy DM4.

I trusted the user and had delt with him before so I knew things would go swimmingly. As promised he held up his end of the deal by paying me the $380 and getting my gun annoed the Louis Vuitton that I wanted by MAX. Who I thought were a trusted and legit anodizing company. I most definately thought wrong.

I am told by MAX that the gun would only take 7-10 days tops. So I'm like "ok cool." That 7-10 days tops would turn into the most frustrating 38 days of my life.

Here's the story:

I send my gun on a Friday, they get it the following Monday and assure me it will be done and back through the USPS system before 10 days. So, I wait.....and wait, and wait with no updates from MAX while the trusted trader is trying to get me information.

Finally I get ahold of MAX's owner Jeramie Petty. I spoke w/ him and he had told me that he had been outta town for his wedding and that his "customs anno guy" was having "car trouble" and never made it into work that whole week. So, to update you now, it's been 3 weeks and my gun has been sitting on a desk in their warehouse still in the box I sent it in. I was told it was done and ready to ship, too. I was pretty mad that they lied, and figured he had a good excuse so I'll let it slide.

Continuing the conversation w/ Mr.Petty, he then told me that he would have it out to me "GUARANTEED BY NEXT FRIDAY DUDE." So, I wait, and Friday comes and goes, w/ no sign of the gun, nor any updates. Once again, it's 4 weeks, and no gun.

5 weeks roll on by and still no word from Mr. Petty. I have called a good 3-5 times per day since the day we spoke and gotten the answering machine every time. I've left numerous messages and countless e-mails, only to receive no replies.

Today, (Saturday the 2nd) I am at work and my sister calls me telling me I got a package from "MAX Annodizing". So, in all the anticipation I have been in, I rush home to pick it up and bring it to work since I'm pulling a 10 hr. shift off of no sleep and work at a paintball store anyways.

I get home only to find the gun to be not only the right finish I had asked for, but COUNTLESS flaws, blemishes, stains, and God knows what ALL over my gun.

I immediately took pictures of the destruction and I think that you'll be surprised w/ how TERRIBLE of a job this was.


It was supposed to look like this:


And I end up w/ this:

So, as you can tell, MAX totally trashed my gun.

And you'd think, with 40 days to anno a gun 2 colors, it really wouldn't be too hard of a task for a company that has been labeled "the best" and has done over 3 perfect LV Print guns.

JUST TO PROVE IT IS FROM MAX

Do it by some place local? If no place local, find a place that if your not safisfied(sp) you return it to them and they fix what you don't like. O and Louis Vuitton is not an "easy" thing to anno.

Who cares if its easy? He payed money and waited for more than a month for a ****ty anno from a company that has done the same design several times before with much better results.

Thats gay how they only put two rows of symbols on yours. You should send yours back, get it fixed up and make sure they do 4 rows of symbols like on that dm4. Get it gloss too, it looks ****ty in dust.

This is wdp02lcd, I'm just on my friends name. He logged on to post because we're both at work.

customproducts- I figured it would be easy for MAX who has done a few of these same annos.

derailedmatt- No way. I'd never sell a gun this terrible to someone else.

snwbrdr913- Yeah, thanks.

bkomasta808- I refuse to send it back. **** them. They can give me my money back and I'll just go to FBM.

mutated pig- No way, do NOT get anything annoed there.

strange mike nerve- Yeah haha. That was quite funny IMO.

firstdibbz- I asked them to do it in gloss. Guess they're just ****ing idiots?

Are you sure you didn't order the fake LV design? ...some of the fake LV bags in NYC look a lot like your ano.

In all seriousness, sorry dude, your gun is jacked.

I'm getting really sick of your nonsense. If you can't be civil, then just shut up. Is it that hard to ignore someone if they like something you don't?

Madpsi-and your opinion counts for what here? nothing. (damn someone beat me to it)


I assume you have not been able to contact MAX since you recieved the marker back but if you do let us know what they say they are going to do for your, this is why I have always sworn I go with a local guy I trust or FBM who garuntees their work.

If they dont answer your calls or emails anymore I would find someone local to them to go and ask in person for you.
