Frustrated!

by DallanC » Sat Feb 01, 2014 4:25 pm

So I cashed in all the brownie points I've been saving up with the wife and ordered a sweet new Stag 6l AR-15 rifle. This is the Left Handed target rifle, it comes with a 24" bull barrel and is guaranteed .5 MOA. I've wanted one for quite some time but with the recent gun craze, prices have been at ridiculous levels. That changed recently though and prices currently are lower than they were pre-craze.

Anyway long story short, I won one from BudsGunShop off Gunbroker.com. I received confirmation on 1/21 that they received my stores FFL. Payment was marked as received on 1/24, and they said they would be shipping the gun in the new few days.

Scope and mounts already arrived... just sitting on the bench ready to go.

Yesterday, I got a phone call from them and they said there was a "inventory error" and they don't have one in stock and will have to order it! Ridiculous! I happened to notice on Gunbroker that they have listed even more rifles of the same model for the same price... KNOWING they don't have any in stock! IMO that is absolutely poor service. You just don't sell things in an AUCTION you don't actually have in hand. :confused:

They said they reordered on the 28th, and it will be 3-4 days before they get them in hand, then a few more days before it ships out. Really annoying. Hopefully it does show up in the next week or two... but I'm considering a strongly worded review of their service once all of this concludes. "thumbsdown:

That's too bad. It doesn't surprise me though, in the few dealings I've had with Bud's Gun Shop, I haven't been impressed.

Got an email today: "Your order is now in the shipping department. "

Possible it could ship out soon.

Good to hear. I think it was only a year or two ago that Bud's actually started stocking guns at their place of business. Before that they would just have the guns drop-shipped from the wholesaler or manufacturer.

I got emailed a tracking # last night, estimated delivery will be Monday unfortunately (wish I could have picked it up Saturday... but it might come in early, who knows). Anyway I'm really surprised the gun was as cheap as it was, I really expected them to say it was a listing error or something. It was $300 below the quoted price on Stag's website.

This is what it looks like, should be bad coyote medicine!

That's a pretty gun. What optics are you going to put on it? Any idea what kind of trigger it has?

Nice, that Nikon P223 is tempting. What scope mounts did you go with? I like the 1:8 twist too....that's what mine has, and it seems just about right.

I got the matching p223 nikon mounts. They are 2 piece... I almost went with the M223 which is a 1 piece mount but it seems all the new ones have a 20MOA angle built into them and I'm not sure if the p223 scope has enough adjustment to overcome that. With the BDC built into the reticle, there isn't a need to screw down the turret to get out to 600 yards so having that much MOA adjustment isnt needed for this specific type of scope.

People give the p223 mounts great reviews so it should be fine for my needs. This isn't a gun I'm going to be abusive too like a carbine, out brush busting so the mounts should be ok.
