Not too Happy with AKA

I was a dealer for them and sold lot's of Viking's and a few Excal's. The PROBLEM I HAVE IS THAT I SENT WARRENTY PART'S TO THEM IN FEB.07 AND TO THIS DAY ALL I GET IS SORRY NOT YET.............TOO BAD THEIR WORD WASN'T AS GOOD AS THEIR GUN'S..............I'am one who doesn't mind being put on hold but I won't wait foreverrrrrrrrrr..............So I'am venting If I would have Known what I know now, I have a bussiness and I beleive in service for that's what keep's me in BUSSINESS. I FEEL LIKE I HAVE A BAG FULL OF LEMON'S GOOD THING IS I LIKE LEMONADE.

Since the "Big Split" customer service has suffered a tad bit at AKA. Not having the parts to you since feb.....there is no excuse for that.

If we were talking about DC I'd say that statement is true but ever since the split, AKA has been hit or miss for me. Sometimes I think they are trying to drive away customers so they can slowly disappear from the paintball scene.

Comon, I highly doubt Larry is back there going haha I got this guys marker still. The company is "still" going through alot and priorities are priorities, im not saying its right at all, because its not...but out of malice? I dont think so.

Maybe AKA should just sell what is left of AKA's paintball business to Jared at DC. Maybe he could cut a new deal with Smartparts and start production again. yeah, I know, it's a dream.

No teaser on this one. SP is very negotiable on price.

He is just saying its in the realm of possibility. Even buying the major stake in a small company and the existing inventory costs a lot of dough.

I think the comment was aimed at SP not tearing out all the margin on a small production run line like AKA. SP makes no $$$ off AKA Vikings and Excals not being produced.

Don't know what DCs mill production capacity is. Maybe buying the rights to the Viking and Excal from Larry and then paying LEADS to produce the triple and double tube body blanks and then DC cuts them themselves and guarantees the internals.

As I understand DC is all part time with main jobs. This would probably have to be full time.

But Dan is saying there is a chance the business could be financially stable. It could also easily be a disaster.

Lets form a venture capital company and finance this. We'll get Aaron back...by the way..where the heck is Aaron and what is he doing now? It would be kinda cool to see Aaron, Jared and Dan team up. The new company could be called AJD.
