308shooter - seller review

I recently bought one of his 870 police trade-ins here in the MP. When I received it there was an issue which he had missed as a simple oversight.

Here is a brief synopsis of our exchange the last few days:

ME: There is a problem.
HE: Yes I see it now, sorry how can we fix this.

ME: Let me look into this or that.
HE: OK, I will make it right.

ME: Here is what I learned and here is my suggested fix.
HE: Sounds fair to me. If you are good I am good.

ME: I am good with that.
HE: DONE!

We all make mistakes occasionally, but the "make" of a man is how you fix those things when they happen.

Deal with him and deal with confidence! 308shooter has class and honor to spare

Picked up a Glock from him a few weeks back and transaction was butter-smooth. Glad you two were able to work things out.

I've done several deals with Zach and never had a problem.

I just hope someday I'm online at the right time to be first for one of his sweet surplus/estate deals.

I've had good experience with Zach. Currently in a deal with him now. He's good to go in my book.

I agree. Never had a bump in the road in any deal with him.

I've bought from him here, and on GB. Always easy to deal with, and no ossues. I look forward to sending him money. Lol.
