Just got this a few minutes ago.
That's nice to hear.
But it's still impossible to get ahold of them! I don't know what their email backlog is, a few weeks at least it seems like. Calling their phone# usually results in a busy signal. Took me a few weeks before I was able to get ahold of them about an item that didn't get delivered... But once I got through, they sent those parts out the same day. No doubt they have great CS, but they are certainly still slammed!
Unless you were one of those that got bypassed!!
Hey I finally got notification that my pmags were shipped! I'm a happy camper!!
I call BS! Got an email also, it seems like its just another excuse, oh well whatcha gonna do right. They got what we want...
Brownells has one of the best reputations in the industry. Pete Brownell still runs it like a family, and having dealt with them for a long time, I tend to believe them. I'm sorry your so butt hurt by the industry (sadly understandable with bubblegums like Cheaper Than Dirt around), but even if I had been passed over, I'd have at least appreciated the acknowledgement...
I got that one too, probably along with another five thousand people.
I want my pmags!!!!
Relax Kids, its not Cheaper Than Dirt. You'll get your mags sooner or later, and you'll get them for the price you bought them for...
Heck yeah I'm mad. Everything I ordered wasn't on backorder for 4 whole days it showed in stock, then I got emailed saying everything I ordered is back ordered. The least they can do is hook it up or something since they screwed up.
I got that email also
When and how many did you order? I ordered a pack of 10 on 12/27.
Posted elsewhere, but thread appropriate.
Hitler Reacts to Brownell's Pmag Backorder Problem - YouTube
Now that is freakin funny! !!!!!
Just out of curiosity, what do those of you who feel slighted want? They realized they had a problem, unfortunately not before some unfairness happened, and once they realized it, they publicly admitted it and took steps to make sure it won't happen again. What do you feel you are owed? Not judging, just curious...
I ordered the 10 pack bundle and it was on 12/19. USP says they will be here Tuesday!!
Everybody take a step back, a deep breath and say "this too shall pass" three times.
I've dealt with Brownell's for at least 30 years. They are ALWAYS prompt, honest and reasonable.
They are stuck in the middle between the manufacturer and end user in a situation where demand
is far beyond supply. Cut them a little slack--guaranteed they are doing the very best they can
with a difficult situation Your stuff will get here in due time.
At least they haven't gone to scalper prices like some places!
Knock 20% off our order total. I can't imagine what kind of "logic" they supposedly setup that made sense at the time. How does shipping orders randomly make more sense than shipping them in the order received?
What if there was a ban by now and they had to cancel those back orders from 2 months ago, while those who ordered a couple weeks ago already got their mags? Yeah, I got mags, but the point is that in the political climate, they are unfairly sending mags to more recent orders while those of us waiting in line will be waiting in line some more, and may never get them before a ban could possibly be implemented. It's total bullbubblegum.
Except right now. And I don't care that it takes them 1 month or so to fulfill an order, I get the manufacturer is behind due to demand. My beef is that they are sending stock they are getting in, to more recent orders, while those of us standing in line will continue to wait. Who knows how much longer it will be, if ever. Been waiting for 2 MONTHS already, only to find out people who ordered in mid January are getting theirs already, while people like me who ordered in mid December are still waiting....
