Re: McMillian Stocks?!?!

I had better luck in dealing with their customer service than others. I'm in agreement with those that haven't, a more realistic approach to wait times should be standard, and good customer service over the phone should be a constant, not an exception. Nobody should be wondering in August, if a stock promised in March will be in hand for an October hunt.I was mostly commenting on the state of the entire industry. The last brick of .22 ammo I saw was months ago, empty shelves at retailers, out of stock for online dealers, etc.. A pretty sorry state of affairs all the way around.

Re: McMillian Stocks?!?!

You know what, after re-reading what you said...
It's the customer service part that I totally agree with. I am in a service based industry. If I tell a guy his job will be done on Friday, I better have it done or I might not see his work again.
So yeah, I guess I wasn't in much of a time constraint. But, if I had been promised in "x" months, I would expect it then too.
Carry on.

Re: McMillian Stocks?!?!

so how is it that some guys in this thread ordered stocks in feb and still don't have them yet other guys have gotten stocks ordered in march?

I understand that painted stocks take longer and that may be the case there. McMillian did tell me that they were working on painted stock orders from jan so that would make sense.

I have not ordered a different stock yet as I am still hoping that this one does ship this week.

thanks for the input everyone, I cant remember the exact day that I ordered mine but I know it was 1-2 week of march because it was around my birthday. I just never thought that I would still be waiting on it in sept when I was told the first of aug for delivery

Re: McMillian Stocks?!?!
