Reply To: FX Impact: The Wait and Anticipation
EDIT: Didn’t mean to hijack either, this is my final off topic comment.
I think a lot of that started on the Yellow and then everyone else piled it on. AOA fell out of favor not because of their service but because it was perceived they were trying to control the market both on price and stopping a Canadian company from importing HW parts. They had the lowest price on the Cricket and they included the cheek piece. This was considered an unfair business practice. Stopping the Canadian company from importing HW parts which were way cheaper was also considered an unfair business practice.
Im not saying I agree with the Canadian issue, but when it comes to price and the fact they are one hour away I purchased from AOA. As far as service, I had an issue with my AirWolf. When the part came in they replaced it for free, even though it was me that damaged the part. A lot of people say AOA inflates FX products but no one has produced any evidence to support this claim.
Not saying I’m a huge fan of AOA, or that their service is good, but don’t forget they were a major reason for the annual Quail Creek match which brings everyone from around the world. No other airgun event even comes close.
