Well, the wife called La Rue today. She talked to Alfred and Jamie. Alfred said he did not have a record of my purchase and after she gave them the conformation and billing number, he found that the order was under her
(my wife's) name. So. . .
what I think happened is that I placed the order under my account, but my wife's name is on our debit card, so I put her name as the billing info. I do this on every
single purchase that I make using our checking account and this was the first time it was a problem. PROBABLY JUST AN HONEST SLIP, DUE TO THE SHOT SHOW.
) But he claimed that an e-mail was sent for inquiry about this issue. There WAS NONE. My wife let him know that was not accurate and got switched to another member, "Jamie."
Once the gal Jamie got on the phone, she made things happen. Luckily the owner of my local FFL was at the store and between the 2 of them they got info. exchanged, so the lower will go out Wednesday. Apparantly there is a 3 week
waiting period on the Stealth uppers! (Back log?) So once this is all said and done 6-7 weeks will be the total wait time. . . I know, I know they are the best. . . But damn.
They have every piece of contact info. needed to reach me. They could've called or e-mailed (5 min MAX) and this ball would have been rolling sooner.
Well, I will only miss my shooting date with my pops by a month, but he'll have a great gun. . . eventually.
On Another Note:
This weekend or next. . .
I will be ordering a set of billet receivers for a rifle for myself. This will be my first on billets. I will be spending quite a bit less. I'm thinking Sun Devil, Mega, POF, etc. The quality, service, fit and function will be directly compared and reported.
