Two weeks tomorrow. Is the seller here? If you you can look at the profile and see if he has been online or not. If he has been online, but is simply ignoring your messages, I would definitely be concerned.

Yeah, that's long enough. Has the seller even sent you a tracking number? I try to ship the next day or two, at the most, once I receive payment. If you've bought from me before, then I sometimes ship when I get it packaged (usually before I even receive payment). You can link the ad here if you like.

User hasn't been on the site since the 23rd

Seller says will be shipped out the same day when payments received.

Another member knows him so he might be going through family problem....

Got the barrel today, 7/8/19. Was sent out on 7/5/19. Paid on June 22nd.

Why can't seller just answer I/M or let's me know he can't send it out till after the 4th? I would have been fine with it.

Time for a full refund. That barrel is FUBAR. Louis should know better. Louis IS NOT a good example of an honest seller, and under no circumstances would trade with him.

I would have asked for pictures of the wrench marks .....

That is beyond anything I would’ve ever imagined.

You got some punch marks, pipe wrench marks, and maybe vise marks.
How's the bore look?

the punch marks are addressing an overtiming issue. there is no way the displaced metal on the shoulder from those punch marks correlates with

"Belgian G1 barrel assembly, bore is in excellent condition, flats have wrench marks but times correctly. $175 shipped"


Louis knowingly misrepresented this product I hope you note that in the review. I'm certainly putting him on my "dishonest seller" list.

If it has a pristine bore, it might be worth it to you to tig and recut the flats. It can be done. I'd charge $125. Can't do anything about the shoulder. I don't know if I'd trust such a dishonest seller to return your money, and since you both violated probably PP user agreement in the transaction, I doubt you'd get resolution there.

Contact me for a refund HVT98

Wow, not the response I expected. I have not been on the files since I sold my last items. I am getting out of the fal hobby, hence my selling off of all my parts. To the OP, if you are not happy with the barrel, send it back. Iíll cover the shipping and issue a full refund. If I would have been aware of the issue (my fault) I would have contacted you immediately. I have been on a long vacation and been traveling to some very remote locations, I havenít been checking email or any boards.
As far as the barrel is concerned, it was described accurately and no questions were asked. It times fine on the receivers I had so I sold it as such. OP has already left a negative feedback, Iím offering a refund since heís not happy. Everyone take care now.

Of course it was an honest attempt at being dishonest Mark, my feedback sure shows that as a pattern. Iím happy to of left this place because of assholes like you that make it their business to slander everyone they get a chance to. Could never of been a guy, selling off a bunch of stuff and not really thinking much about it. Your opinion doesnít matter really because your influence only reaches so far and it ainít far. Yíall take care, I hope HVT98 and I can settle this and walk away happy. You, who cares.

The barrel does not time correctly and you cannot even have tested to see if it would time correctly. The shoulder is so deformed with punch that determining how it would time is physically impossible. You are a liar.

You also lied through omission. While it is technically true that the wrench flats have "marks", you deliberately omitted that these "marks" were such incredibly severe gouging that they would make an angry beaver envious! You are a liar.

"Slander" does not mean what you pretend it means. You are a liar. I note that you are a liar. That is called "speaking the truth".

Good riddance, you lying sack of shit.

And yet it remains, you are a liar.

You lied about correct timing
You lied about "marks" which you knew damn well were a hell of a lot more than "marks".

You are a low-life, lying sack of shit and I hope scum like you never returns to the FalFiles.

TIG it up, cut it to spec and turn, slightly, the shoulder to true it up. Then, fit a proper breeching washer and use it and chock it up to lesson learned on both sides. Take care, gentleman.

Need advice:

Louis sent me message on 7/12 saying he will take back the barrel and give me a refunds. I replied few hours later to confirm his mailing address that I got from the original box that he sent me the barrel in.

As of 7/16 still no answer since he hasn't logged on to the site.

Should I keep waiting or send the barrel to the original address and assume that's where he wants it?

From my personal knowledge of Louis, I would say to wait and get an address to send it to. Last time we spoke to each other early this year, he was a little mobile in the residence department (hadn't found a permanent place that he liked).

Wow!

Ive dealt with a dirtbag on FF MP recently but this even beats that.


Id ignore getting a accurate address for the guy and just send it to GP and be done with it if the bore is excellent.

I bought a load of wood from an old time member here,,,thought nothing of it,,had bought from hi before,,,,then he just disappeared.

90.00 bucks gone

Folks close to him thought he went to prison/jail.

4 years or so,,,never to return,,oh well,,,shit happens............

one issue here in a few hundred,,far better than dealing with Walmart.
