    Hi all.
    I'm in a bit of a quandary about an order I made almost a month ago(Nov. 26th), I ordered a Mosin Nagant M91/30 Hexagonal shaped Receiver almost a month ago and I feel I'm getting the run around from the people I ordered it from, Im not sure if I should name them or not, They technically haven't done anything wrong that I can tell, But I am wondering if I should cancel my order and find another place.
    My issue's are, The Gun shop I am having it shipped to (I went to school with the guy who runs the shop) has tried multiple times to fax over their FFL info and the Seller says their fax machine is working "some" of the time... I went into the Gun shop last Sat.(Dec. 12th) and was told they mailed a copy of the FFL info to get the ball rolling on Dec. 11th, I emailed the seller this last Thurs. Dec. 17th to see if they received the FFL in the mail and the salesman said they still haven't seen anything...
    I know this isn't a big ticket item, But it is a sale, One reason I decided to purchase from this company is the Rifle had all the extra military items with it.
    I know they are sold all over the place, Maybe I should see if the local Gun shop can locate me a Mosin with all the goodies, They have done their part as far as I can tell and I had no issue with paying the $30 transfer fee.
    Am I being impatient or unreasonable?
    What says FTF?

    No idea of you are encountering deliberate obstruction- or incompetent idiots. End result is about the same. There are a bunch of the re-arsenaled 91/30s out there- including hex receivers (I'll show you mine if you'll show me yours) for low prices- including tool kit, slings, oilers, dog collars, bayonet, ammo pouches- and probably some of the borscht that Ivan was having for lunch in 1940.

    A month is way past time to get their fricking act together. You can BUILD a fax machine in that time- and they really do not NEED a copy- they NEED the license number of your FFL- they can verify it on line thru the ATF EZChek system.

    Their lack of action would have done damned little to engender confidence in them. Tell them to go pound sand, cancel the order, and either order from someone else, hit an auction on Auctionarms.com, or give your FFL a chance to make a couple of bucks, and get one for you.

    First who did you buy the rifle from? and Do not be afraid to name names.

    Second if it has been a month sense your order for a Mosin Nagant 91/30 and you have not recieved that yet, I would start shopping around for a new supplier.

    Thanks for the replies.
    Please..No borscht, I hate beets :eek:
    I ordered the Mosin from AIM Surplus, They haven't charged my CC and the salesman has been prompt on returning emails.
    I think I will cancel my order and search locally, I know I saw a Mosin at Big 5 today, But it was on hold and the place was a zoo.
    Again thanks for the replies, I will see what I can find locally, I was hoping for a Rifle as a Christmas present, But time will tell.

    I ordered a Hex from these guys:
    RGUNS - Bolt Action Rifles
    Received a 1926 Tula Ex-dragoon 91/30 that is perfect. I received it 5 days after the order was placed. I have 2 1935 Tula 91/30's that are also perfect that I received from them. Great folks to deal with.

    Please keep us informed. Aim Surplus does a lot of business and I've bought ammo from them. It will be good to know how they handle this.

    Thanks for the link, It shows what I would like to be in stock.
    Im curious to know what the difference would be between the ex-sniper and the regular hex receiver?

    CA357, I will let you know how it turns out.
    I emailed my cancellation last night, Im not sure if someone will receive it till Mon.
    Thanks again.

    I dont think this matters, But I was ordering a few other items along with the rifle from AIM, Which I'm sure I can find elsewhere as well.

    A month is waaaaaaaay too long brother. If the gun wasn't at my FFL with in a week I would've canceled and shopped elsewhere. These rifles are plentiful, my guess is that they didn't have in stock some of the other items you ordered, so they held your whole order. Don't ever hesitate to "name names" we all appreciate feedback, positive or negative. It helps out the rest of us when we're ready to order.

    On their website, It says if they have to back order anything, They will give me the choice to cancel the order, I have not seen anything of the sort in any of the emails.

    So in other words. . . they have NO excuse for the delay??? Even more of a reason to tell them: keep your gun, don't charge my card and MOVE ON!

    Happy days once again!
    I called down to Gunnies to see if they had any M91/30 Mosins, The guy said yeah, we have about 16 of them...
    So I wandered down to Orem(about 40 miles South of my shop here in SLC)and bought one, It appears to be in great shape, I need to bake out all the cosmoline and give it a good cleaning, None appeared to be counter bored, But I have an MN with 100 rounds for $130.00! of course it has all the extra goodies it should.
    If anyone wants pic's I will have to do it later, Pop's got his nickers in a bunch because I took a 2 hour lunch...
    As you were :)

    BTW, Still no email from AIR Surplus if there is an issue with me canceling my order, So I think Im off the hook there.
