Files member RPU

So here's a piece of work.

Guy wanted my last two new in box Aussie bolts. Wanted to verify that they had crossed flag proofs. After three phone calls, a slew of emails, a thread I started FOR HIM to discuss the nature of the crossed flags, offers to include extras, an attempt at negotiating a lower price when there were already freebies being included, and finally a last minute unwillingness to use my preferred method of payment, I decided to simply withdraw them from the market.

Here is how that went.




I have since blocked him. Sellers beware, he will insist on phone calls to discuss details, and speak at length about his time collecting, his knowledge of FAL rifle history, his close ties to John Bush, and anything related that may be deemed impressive. I determined him to be a snooty, entitled tire kicker.

Don't give me grief about the PayPal either. 🙄 I wanted to use it so I could have funds available immediately to buy some of that loot ScottV2 is selling over the weekend. Credit card processing would take a few days to be available.

Sounds like my experience with another certain member here. Hey Adam, could you PM me please? Got a question for you.

I hate selling anything. You just can't please some people, unless you send it to them free, overnight shipping. I had some new bullet molds for sale and had two guys that wanted to give me half price, and me pay shipping. I asked one of them if he wanted me to pay him to take the thing off my hands. LOL.

The molds went back on my shelf. Not selling a $100 mold for $45.

Before or after the custom refinish ?

Thanks for the heads up, Adam. Sounds like exactly the kind of spoiled millenial I don't want to ever deal with.

Sorry that you had to deal with this Adam.

RPU just sent a PM asking me to sell one one of my FAL rifles to him.

Interesting that he states that he is in Chicago? Um... no........ two strikes, not interested in being the guy who gives him a third.

Just to let everyone know, I am not one of the idiots ; but I am a FAL admirer. My bank account and a few FAL Filers can attest to that.

This was brought to my attention by someone here on the FAL files.
I contacted this guy about his bolts and told him, up front, that if the bolts were what I was looking for, I would buy them.
I am providing all of the emails, in total, to give you a better picture of what went on between myself and this creap. After reading them, you decide who the jerk is. It is amazing that someone who wants to tell us how valuable his time is, writes long emails goes through all of this crap. I talked to him several times on the phone in an attempt to see if he had what I wanted. The emails followed.

Well, that solves a bit of a puzzle. The bolts in the boxes were acceptance marked while the bulk bolts apparently were not. It fits with the story that one day SAF Lithgow just closed their doors... I have a crate of lower receivers in various stages of completion as well. Same story; just not done.

So they're marked. Total would be $275 for two plus one set of internals, but I'll throw in a new firing pin set and retaining pin as well.

How does that work for you?

These are the last two I have. If I put them away (and I'm about to) then they'll go up more. I don't need the money. I've spent a LOT of time with you on this matter and been VERY accommodating. But I'm done. $275 shipped for both bolts, one parts set. The offer is exactly as it is posted in the thread, not different in any way shape or form.

My time is valuable. You have consumed a great deal of it over these two small parts. Now you're trying to negotiate me down. I've had enough.

Hi Adam
Thanks for checking.
Did you say yesterday that you would throw in one set of internals if I bought both bolts for $125 ea.

Well, that solves a bit of a puzzle. The bolts in the boxes were acceptance marked while the bulk bolts apparently were not. It fits with the story that one day SAF Lithgow just closed their doors... I have a crate of lower receivers in various stages of completion as well. Same story; just not done.

So they're marked. Total would be $275 for two plus one set of internals, but I'll throw in a new firing pin set and retaining pin as well.

How does that work for you?

They are still sealed in the wrap, and the original tape on the box is intact, so I really can’t say exactly how they’re marked. Sorry.

This creap likes to slander people.
What kind of a scumbag takes peoples parts, sits on them for a long time, doesn't ever return them, and then launches a deragatory attack, slandering that person on ths forum.
He commented that he fired this person as a customer. I think in reality, the customer fired him.
He also commented that he blocked me. What a moron. Like I would waste my time trying to have further contact with him.
This guy behaves like a two year old child, and I would caution any involvement with him. You may be the next one he slanders.

I don't think any of this has to do with being a FNG. People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

First of all, it's creep, not creap. You lose credibility if you cannot understand, interpret, and use the English language to make an argument.

Also, before you start throwing the "slander" word out there, please take the time to understand the legal definition, and what actually constitutes slander.

Based on what I have witnessed from your postings and your inconsistent spelling, it is my opinion that you are a dumb ass.

(P.S. That is not slander. Do some research.)

Looks to me like RPU is out of his league. Apparently reading a dictionary is no more of his strong point than his spelling.

Another troll. I think you should look at a dictionary before chiming in. I am dealing with some real intellects here.

For all the stooge trolls out there that never heard that it is better to remain silent, and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubts, here is the definition from a legal dictionary:
slander. n. oral defamation, in which someone tells one or more persons an untruth about another, which untruth will harm the reputation of the person defamed. Slander is a civil wrong (tort) and can be the basis for a lawsuit.
READ IT, that is, if you are able, and posses better than a first grader's reading comprehension.

If you had actually read that thread as I did and comprehend as I did You would note where he was having issues getting the hot bluing process right thus holding up sending out barrels so no he did not sit on peoples parts as you allude to, also I think that there is more to the story that you are so blissfully unaware of, so to comment on that exchange is unwise.

As to YOUR issue you tried to negotiate another price for the items after already agreeing to the price so now who is the moron?

At this point you’re just name-calling and it’s not improving your position.

Slander is a ORAL ( SPOKEN, in case you think oral only applies to certain other activities ) defamation. That's right from your very own source above. A WRITTEN defamation ( yep, your keyboard counts ) is libel. So, apparently, you have revealed that YOU are the one with the reading comprehension problem.

Just for your consideration, truth is an absolute defense.

Now STFU, you ignorant asshole. I might consider donating a bolt if you promise to insert it where you apparently think they belong.

Okay, Mr. Anal. Why don't you take a shit and change your personality. As if any reasonable person didn't know exactly what I meant you dumb dick. Why don't you get a job or something to occupy your time and make your life meaningful, rather troll this forum you looser. Pathetic!
