Default ANOTHER ugly Sarco story!

Hi All,

I took one more chance with Sarco! Yep! it is ANOTHER disaster!

I called because their ad in " Firearms News" mentioned they had repro canvas cases for the WW-2 Springfield rifle -USMC marked & the early WW-1 canvas cases for the 03 in stock!

Knowing Sarco's POOR reputation, I called & was ASSURED, ALL the items were in stock!
I received two US marked canvas cases - nice quality- BUT ---NOT--- what I ordered!
The WW-1 case was on back order 30 to 90 days! Cost me $12 to ship them back! They tell me they will cover my return shipping charges!

Don't think I'll be doing any more business with them!

IF you must buy from them, drive over or have a pal pick them up for you & ship them to you!

SAD people to deal with!

lived within a few miles of their NJ store for years + visit the Pa. store at times - the bad reputation is totally deserved - every professional gunsmith + serious collector i know refuse to deal with them at all or only as a last resort if no other source is available for their needs - 35 years ago they were a reputable concern , but no more -

i stop at Pa. store monthly after my collectors associating meeting - found no changes at all - very bad attitudes + junk merchandise + high prices - lots of reproduction stuff advertised as original -

Hi All,

SCARCO will be sending me a return check for the 1903 WW-1 canvas case!
This item was originally ordered 3/19/18 Today is 6/4/18
It's still not in stock! I was assured the check would be the mail (about a week)

I looked on line - Amazon- had the 1903 WW-1 style canvas case (IN STOCK)
It will be here in about a week! Including shipping $31 & change

Use good judgement, if you deal with SCARCO.

Good Luck,
broom
