GRRRRRRrrrrrrrr!

Post by GunnyMack »

Trying to get this 218 Winchester out to shoot. Being a tube fed gun I ordered a FCD die off amazon with the thought I would get it fast! HA, the joke is on me as tracking number has it in the same location for 5 days....
Chat with the virtual worthless AI on amazon tells me to contact the seller directly, Midway. (If I had realized it was Midway I was ordering from I would have gone there directly) Amazon AI connected me with Midway and the person on that chat says to contact amazon ! Of course Midway doesn't have anyone doing customer service on the phone !

Ah don’t you love when customer service bounces you to and fro?

Hopefully it shows up soon.

always remember the screw ups but not the numerous on time buys
there is no such thing as a miss if you still have ammo

This is why feedback can be unreliable - the average satisfied customer which makes the majority won’t leave feedback. Those who have a bad experience are far more likely to.

Midway ships UPS then transfers to USPS and that's where the order
goes cold.
I checked tracking again last night, now supposed to be delivered by the 6th. Meanwhile, I ordered another FCD and a box of Hornady Bee bullets directly from Midway as I don't have much faith the first order will ever show up.

I have had pretty good luck with Midway and Grafs, preferring to order from the latter, smaller outfit when possible, and I have already paid for enough of Potterfield's safaris. :lol:
I've noticed a number of big sellers quietly popping up on Amazon.
Hope it all works out, Will.

Due to weather, barn owner making changes, waiting on material we knocked off early today so I went to the post office and get some info on tracking. Seems the distribution center I see on tracking is not a USPS facility. So who knows what or where it is!

Email from Midway, claim is trucking is the cause for this order being late. They say in some cases 11 day backlog. Why? What's the cause ? Did I miss something...
But they have refunded me the shipping cost, I guess I can live with that.
New updated delivery is now by the 9th..

For the driver's sake -- I hope he wasn't "on the bridge"..............

No, No7- I ordered it after the bridge and it is shown to be in my state.
