I've threatened similar and you're right, it DOES work. I've let a vendor know that I'm an old, mean-spirited retired man with PLENTY time on my hands. I told them I would spend a majority of it on every, single forum or group I could find and let them know just how bad the item or service I got from _____ was. If that was worth the paltry sum of $$$ they had gotten from me fine. But I hoped they felt lucky .... :evilgrin:

Yeah that's the reason I got from them, having accepted the transfer from the FFL. As to the poor examples I received and their advertised condition they replied simply "that's surplus" implying the established grading scale doesn't mean diddly to them.

I may try to make a further fuss but I'm not holding my breath considering how quickly and bluntly their phone rep denied any responsibility. On the plus side I've got to enjoy the crap out of my others since Academy Sports started stocking Monarch for 10/box again :)

Well, I got a call today from my FFL dealer, she said my gun was in. Picked it up a few hours ago. It is in much better condition than the original one I had received, which was a 1968 gun. This one is dated 1973. I would rate this one as very good to excellent condition.

Classic Firearms went out of their way to get this gun to me quick. They sent me the replacement gun two hours after receiving the returned gun.

This is the kind of service that should be standard for every one. I think what drove my complaint was, I wasn't concerned with the cosmetics, but the fact that the gun was not functional as received originally.

Any way, it has worked out to my satisfaction, and I give them credit when it is due.

Just don't take a chance on Classics recent batch of Finnish M38 Mosins they bought from Pat Burns. A lot of unhappy campers getting cracked stocks and having to eat shipping and FFl fees to send them back and a lot of them were paid the hand pick price.

Thanks for the heads up. It seems like buying milsurp is like a crap shoot. I got one p64 from AIM, and it is not as nice as this replacement P64 from Classic.

Pretty tough trying to nail down a "best" supplier. :roll:
