I bought a Hatsan Sniper Vortex 125. I had read where it was known to ship with dryer out seals, so I asked them to check it in the other comments at the bottom of order form. Got the rifle and seal were bad, expressly the breach seal, no rise in it at all. That was two week of no rifle for me, they did ship a good one after that.
Then I bought a Crosman Vantage and the sites exploded before my eyes on the fourth shot, Crosman’s bad on that one I think but next one was fine.
Bought Air Venturi air tank. That would not fill up my rifle at all so bought another rifle and would not fully fill it or balance out tank. Rifle filled to 1000psi and tank read after fill 1500psi. This ordeal took a month and a half . They just refunded my money yesterday.
Also bought a sx60c and asked again to have seals checked on order form. Rifle arrived with main seal inside air tube jumbled (???), but that is what it was. Was told it held air at shop. No way it ever held air. Was sent full seal kit for rifle.
Also bought two other guns with questionable seals but keep anyway, did not want the hassle.
Three things I was happy with Benjamin Marauder, Hill hand pump and ammo, twice they missed the count and sent one tin short. Oh and four cases.
Just ordered a Benjamin Bulldog. Have read about bleed valve leak, 50 50 chance it will leak. Called and asked them to check it for me was told they just grab one off the shelf but if I have an issue please return. i was trying to save them money on shipping and me that hassle. I will not return for this reason and will fix myself.
Anyway, but Man really,where is the integrity and personal service on known issues xpecaialy? How long can it take to open a box and check a breach seal or bleed valve?
I have been a self employed craftsman my whole life and I always went the extra steps when asked and I don’t get it.
