    You Guys Have Any Luck With Sarco?

    I placed an online order almost a month ago, and still haven't received it.
    I checked online this evening after work and it still shows that it hasn't shipped.
    It shows status of "In Warehouse" whatever that is supposed to mean.
    They also deleted items off my order and put notes at the bottom that says "Item No Longer Available".

    I don't buy much from Sarco, but the few times that I have bought from them has been mostly disappointing.
    Once ordered a Star 9mm Largo pistol, over the phone from them, even paid extra for a hand pic.
    The guy even promised that he would give me the best one that he had.
    I would hate to see the worst one he had.
    The one I received looked pretty rough.

    I don't know maybe I have just had bad luck there.
    It seems like every order takes forever and always has some type of issue.

    Anyone else have similar issues or is it just my bad luck there?

    I bought an m11 kit listed in good condition. Every single pin was busted, the lower was used as a hammer and twisted, the stock was in two pieces. It took a pile of arguing to even get decent pins.

    I ordered 2 argentine fal kits and they were in excellent shape. They ended up screwing up the order and only charged for one. I didn't catch their mistake but got a call 3 months later that I owed them money. I didn't have a problem paying as I had received it but surprised it took them so long to find the error.

    If they've got something I need, I'll order it with the knowledge it may arrive today or next year, missing partsor all there, in bad shape or perfect shape. It's all the luck of the draw.

    Over the years I have ordered small parts from them with no problem. Some of these things a person has to get them where he can find them.

    I recently ordered an A1 rear sight kit from them. Got here pretty quick. It's in the mail box right now. Have not gone down to pick it up yet. I'll report back on condition when I go get it and open it up. I hope it's all there and in decent shape.

    I always got what i ordered from them, last purchase was a Cetme barrel that was a much better deal than what Apex had at the time since it was not only cheaper but it was also threaded in the common 5/8-24 giving me more options.

    Just went to the mailbox and got my A1 rear sight kit from Sarco. Parts are all there and in great shape.

    Edit: Sorry for crappy pic.

    A long time ago I ordered a Mauser 71/84 from them and It did not come with a bolt. I called them and they said OK we will take care of it, They sent me a Mauser 88 bolt.
    We thought about it for a long time, "Endeavor to persevere." And when we had thought about it long enough, we declared war on the Union

    Guess they are 'Hit and Miss" !
    I think I did once get an order and everything was there and in decent shape.
    Most orders have had some issue, though.
    Not that I place that many orders with them.
    It's just that sometimes they have stuff that others don't have, and you take a chance knowing that you are probably gonna get screw in form or fashion.
