Default BBC Weapons Armory Shopping Experience

Firstly, if this is not the right area to be posting this I apologize. I looked for something related to it but didnt find anything. Please do not delete this if it is in the wrong area, simply relocate it, and I apologize in advance if there is an actual place for such a subject, I simply didn't see it.

On Oct 2nd, I went to the Eastwood Mall Expo center for one of their gun shows. I like to go and browse, sometimes I find deals, sometimes not. I recently (less than a few months ago) purchased a S&W MP15ps rifle. I decided on this trip to the show to look for some mods and accys. I stopped by a booth run by BBC Weapons Armory LLC, and started looking at what they had to offer. I asked a few questions, purchased some back up iron sights, and was contemplating a quad rail. I asked her if that would fit any AR15. She asked what rifle I had, and I told her my exact model. She replied of course it will! I made the purchase and then headed to work. I woke up this morning and decided to dress up my rifle. Upon attempted to install the quadrail, I realized that it wouldnt fit. Being a complete n00b to most of this AR stuff, I googled it, re-read the instruction sheet several times, just to make sure that I wasnt doing anything stupidly wrong. Nope, wouldnt fit. I called them up, told the woman what happened, she said, "The quadrail works on all S&W MP rifles. It works on all AR15 rifles. You're doing it wrong." Ok, so I fiddled around with it for a few more hours before calling them up and saying "I really dont think that this quadrail will work on my MP15ps, I saw on your card that you are by appointment only. I would like to make an appointment to return the quadrail since I obviously made a mistake and bought the wrong one." She immediately began berating me saying "You should really know what you're buying. Im in the middle of paperwork, I wont be able to return it. Next time, make sure you know your gun." I then informed her that I have only had the gun a couple of months, and havent really had the time to delve into it and become a true AR expert. I admited to her that I made a mistake, and would simply like to get my money back since no one makes what I am looking for. I bought a green laser from the same gun show, and it was defective. The gentleman that I purchased the laser from not only came out to my place of employment with a replacement, but also gave me several free batteries and told me where I could get more since I was having some trouble tracking them down locally. I would like everyone to consider this when purchasing from a vendor at ANY gun show, but especially this one. She was completely rude, never letting me finish a sentence before jumping in with her blathering ignorance. Honestly, I will be boycotting them the next time I see their booth at a gun show, and will inform everyone as to the horrendous customer service experience that I had.

***Edit*** - A quick google search brought this up as well. Seems shady to me. http://www.bta.ohio.gov/00t355.pdf

Nice first post! Welcome aboard.

Doesn't sound like the Frank and Karen that I've known—through doing business with them, not personally—for many years. I hope it was just somebody having a bad day.

As for the tax case, it was back in '97 (I suspect when BBC was first started) and was eventually dismissed on appeal.

Regards,

Walt
