I read this thread first but decided to have a chat with him anyway on ebay and managed to get insulted a few times. You guys are not kidding.
Sounds like your trying to be the better man but the Nuremberg Defense doesn't hold water."following orders"
Well, his "best ever on eBay" comment is a bit over the top but I think it a pretty good rifle. Sure he's asking a bit much but for what he has in it and all the features his asking price isn't out of the park.
What exactly is your beef with him?
Possibly the guy's attitude!?What exactly is your beef with him?

I think it looks nice. Though, anyone who has to say his is the best that many times do sound like he has a rather insecure disposition regarding competition.
His attitude sucks and he's a jerk.well i came out and asked him for a bit of information on one of his props because it was clearly someone elses and i asked him is this "jim bobs" work.. can i get a few more pics and what exactly does it do?... so i get a nasty response "if you dont plan on buying it then dont contact me and waste my time.. if you want a answer for your questions buy it and see it yourself." so i was upset and said i wanna no about it before i buy it and i got " im not wasting anymore time with you dont contact me i wont respond" ... so..... :facepalm

Agreed, but what does that have to do with his product? Just because the guy is a d-bag certainly doesn't make his stuff "junk". The RPF is FULL of talented d-bags!
So what? I sell lots of stuff on my site that I don't make and I don't give credit to the maker. I'm selling an item. Who gives a rats butt who made it.very true but i have one BIG ISSUE... its NOT HIS WORK.. he buys off of people and resells it .. look at his lawgiver.. i remember another thread where matsuo came on and said he has sold him some... WHY CANT HE GIVE CREDIT TO THE MAKER??
I think it may just be his attitude. I know some people with a Hollier than though attitude that are really annoying. His constant "the worlds best", "never before seen on ebay", and everything else is junk attitude just rubs some people the wrong way. We know he is just puffing his stuff up to make sales to unknowing buyers.
I do like how his ID cards use "custom plastic", LoL!
Then... seeing as he's just a reseller, the "junk" claim is then aimed at the original makers?
Okay, seeing as there is another thread about the guy, I guess it would be better to have this merged into that.
But yes, his shouting style and puffing sure is off-putting, but if he's a reseller of good quality, then it's the props and not the reseller that should be evaluated regarding whether the piece is worth it.
Personally, I'd never buy from such an apparent pompous ass, who seems really insecure and has an attitude. Never did before, so sure wouldn't with him.
I think him asking top dollar and not answering questions about the item is a huge red flag. I do think potential buyers should be warned. There are so many vague line items in his listing that NEED clarification - and when asked he stonewalls. I have had the same type of responses from him in an other item I was interested in and to me it reeks of someone very suspicious that might be trying to pull a fast one.
I think this thread should stay put.
