Angry wrong anno

so lets say you order a gun, with a specific anno in mind
you have seen this anno before, and know that it is a standard job and not hard to recreate
your friend happens to be a dealer, so you order through them
they give u your gun for cost, however the anno looks NOTHING like what you know you ordered, and said friend tells you that it was the anno that did not turn out, when in the back of your mind, the anno looks ASTONISHINGLY like another anno that is said dealer's favorite color, and that perhaps they ordered said different anno to see what it looked like and still tried to pawn it off to you saying that it's the anno you ordered
unforseen financial circumstances which take precidence over paintball arise, and you are unable to purchase gun at time of its arrival, so, dealer lists the gun online as for sale
with the anno listed as that mysterious anno that you thought it was in the back of your mind that the dealer wanted to see, not what you originally ordered


would you still buy it, or tell the dealer where to stick it and not get anymore deals for cost?

From what I gather it's mostly tone differences in the colors you wanted (your BST thread). I wouldn't worry about it and I'd sit and be happy.

I had ordered a gun once and they sent me the wrong frame, even after I ordered aftermarket grips, however they offered to take it back, but I rednecked the grips to work.


Sell it NIB and reorder it.

you always get screwed when someone is giving you a "deal". There's only been a few times that I got a "deal" that actually panned out to what I wanted it to be.

I'd still be pissed. Its like going to a restaraunt for a free meal, ordering a taco, and getting a burrito instead because that's what they wanted you to eat. Then they go "be happy with your burrito".

I guess an easy way to think about it is like this...if you would have ordered it anyways and got it at cost even if you weren't promised a particular color, get over it and enjoy the new gun. If you wouldn't have ordered it had you not gotten the specific color you wanted, then you have every right to be pissed.

Lastly, what are you ordering a gun for and then not having the money for it when it showed up. It would piss me off as a store owner to hook someone up and then when the marker comes, that person goes "oh, I can't afford it now." Sounds like you ordered something pretty specific and stores don't like to stock things that are very specific.

just my 2 cents! Not that I care, just felt like typing

No it wasn't a "one of one." It was a stock factory anodizing.
