I can't find the articles on the RAPS ASA, but they were readily available from Barb's Paintball (ANS' ebay store) when the RAPS was the hot new ASA. There are still pictures on this site from the knock offs that were sold by ANS & their ebay store.

Not only are they charging full price for items that aren't authentic, but they are made cheaply & unsafe. There were multiple safety issues w/ the RAPS ASA & the Myth regulator made by ANS.

Even after being called out for the RAPS & Myth knock offs, ANS repeatedly denied that they were not authentic. IIRC, only legal action from Guerrilla Air stopped them from selling the faux Myth regulators.

I think any company that does this repeatedly, should be avoided.

But, that is just my .02...
They back door'd the companies that make them overseas. Ie Kee's stuff, GA, DP, etc.

Anyone will sell anything.. for a price.

Yeah, I wasn't really sure if they manufactured the items themselves, or resold dumbed down versions from the overseas manufacturers. Either way, they were selling subpar equipment as genuine items from the brands.

I definitely agree with you on this one! Unfortunately, I think that ANS will be treated just like Smart Parts. If they charge a small enough amount for their products, people will still patronize them, no matter how unscrupulous their behavior.

The problem I have with ans is that I have recieved damaged item. Proto mask with badly scratched lenses, asa with bad macro fittin, dented barrel, mask with rusted screws. The shipping leaves something to be desired also. I order on saturday and am lucky to get package on following friday. Unfortunately ans has the best selection AND they do alot of advertising on PBN. PBN is losing money hand over fist especially since the site was bought out so they are NOT about to get rid of money in the bank.

Other than bumping an old thread, you sound like a douche. They handled that very well, you on the other hand need to chill the **** out.

Since the thread starter is associated with a different online paintball store, I think this is safe to close (and probably should have been closed a long time ago).

phillysteve - You spammed this same post in several places on the site, and it wasn't worth bumping a thread from 2011 to post that screenshot. If anything, it shows they have solid customer support. It actually paints you in a worse light then them.

Support your local stores guys. If they don't have what you need, find an online store that suits your needs.
