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
