The official Imperial Paintball Thread

Well....Where should I start.....ME and 2 other guys sent our guns to imperial paintball over 2 months ago for anodizing (pewter to black fade) The eta was 2 weeks...We still do not have our markers.

We e-mail and call but most of the time never get an answer...I myself have only gotten 1 phone call back from him and no replys to any of my e-mails within the 2 month period.

We have heard many things have gone wrong for Bill at Imperial over the 2 months our guns have been gone which is understandable...(LIFE SUX!) But not to sound selfish that isnt our problem as paying customers.

The latest on the race to get our guns back:

Supposedly Bill has not been in the store/office so his nephew annodized our markers and sent them out. 2 of us never got our guns after they were supposedly sent....One did! Here is the pic!



Here are the problems with that anno:
1.scratches everywhere!
2.Wrong colors (supposed to be pewter/gray fade to black)
3.has a dust finish for some reason (supposed to be polished)
4.straight up looks like ***!

So Bill replyed saying his nephew sent them out without him seeing....So bill said now hes going to re-do the anno...

I have contacted a lawyer I know and has researched the situation...That has been put on hold until we see what the guns turn out like when Bill anodizes the guns himself...I already offered him the option f just sending my gun back to me un-anodized with my money back but it seems he wants to finish the job. So we will keep e-mailing and calling him and hopefully he will give us answers....If not Ill have to talk with my lawyer more which I really dont want to do. It will save all of us time and money without lawyers involved.

I talked to bill again tonight...He asked me if I wanted to change what color I wanted....So I thought about it and told him to anodize my marker YELLOW! He said he would ship tomarrow morning.

It really refreshing to know that he still wants to get my gun back to me. Most people wouldnt have admited that they were somewhat wrong in the situation. (Im not saying I was an angel in the situation) So I guess its now a waiting period. He is shipping USPS priority so I should have it back early next week.

I will let everyone know how the anno turns out and will post some pics so you can judge the quality by yourself...

Thanx Bill

**I have not put in my internals yet**
-The hot glue I found in my lpr asa should be good for my solenoid



-The splashes I asked for look really bad, o wait I didn't ask for splashes



-Great job



-The acid seems like it ate away very little but noticable and damaging aluminum, that's why my feed tube doesnt fit and the aluminum worn away from acid on the tray is shown here:



He says the aluminum used to make Bko's and bushy's is weak. ICD claims it's aircraft grade aluminum, which is used in most pb markers. He says the aluminum on my bko is weak yet he can ano his predator impulses fine(there aluminum is considered by some to be like velveeta cheese):



-I wonder if he anodized his Predators like this, would have even sold 1?



It shouldn't be called Imperial Paintball it should be called Inferior Paintball, If you come in contact with Bill or any member of his company or even if considering his services don't walk away....RUN, RUN very very fast!
