Mag Arms contact info?

Sent a USPS money order off last November to Mike at Mag Arms for a PE57 repair section . He told me they would be ready in two weeks. He kept telling me that until he stopped answering my phone calls around late February - early March. At this point i believe I have been scammed but still hope to at least get my money back possibly. This is my last option before I call the postal inspection service about mail fraud. Any help is appreciated.

Mike has had my pe57 Bolt and $900 since 2/2016. I paid for a replica barrel and repair section. He was good about picking up the phone and giving constant excuses up until april 2017. I also paid with a USPMO.

Small update

I did an inquiry on my USPS Money Order and it was cashed in mid January. I have constantly tried to call Mike to make this right (I have even sent an email through the fal files) with absolutely no response.

At this point I'm tempted to go to the address I sent the money order to and demand my money back.

If he's an FFL I'd threaten complaints with licensing and with the popo. Nobody wants to deal with the feds. Also contact Keller PD and file theft charges with them, or go to small claims.

If you have a complete name (which is on the FFL info below) and he's in TX, as a resident you have multiple avenues of satisfaction to pursue.

Licensee Name: Murray, Michael James
3019 Keller-Hicks Rd Bldg #402
Keller, TX 76248
Phone: 972-768-0652

This^^^, And simply go to the post office and file the form regarding the money order. It's simple, and the resultant report will constitute evidence of mail fraud.

Like the man said, nobody (in their right mind) wants trouble w/ the fedz.

Has anyone been in contact with mike at MAG ARMS latly. I paid him $900 back in January 2016 for a barrel and receiver repair section that I still havenít got to this day. If he manages to accidentally pick up my phone call itís B.S. excuse after excuse. I sent in my complete bolt to him as well to get the locking cam reprofiled to convert it from 7.5 to 308 so I have a parts kit minus a bolt if anyone is need parts.

Mike has had 5 of my kits for over 4 years now. At first I felt I needed to provide the time but now he will not take my calls, etc even as I have tried to get my kits back. I dont even want the finished rifles, just the kits back. I have called him every month for the past 4 years and until I got frustrated and called him out on it he took my calls. Now zippo - straight to voice mail.

Why one would wait that long before escalating the situation is beyond me. Sounds like John Law needs to be invited in.
