    I'd just like my scales back. Tuned or not doesn't really matter to me anymore.

    I sent my scales to him last January. My check was cashed in April. Not a single response from him yet he seems to have the time to make a post here once in awhile. I also just want my scales back. My check included would be nice but I don’t think that will happen.

    Being busy is one thing, not responding is just rude.

    Rude. I agree. Taking on work and not doing it, unethical. Cashing my check and not doing performing the work, theft.

    If you all would kindly send me a text with your first and last names. I’d be happy to talk with you and get your scales finished and out the door this week.
    Thank you.

    So did anyone have their issue with scott parker resolved?

    I received this from scott on May 25th:

    "Ships Weds come hell or high water.
    Scott"

    Nothing, zero, nada

    How stupid am I?? After reading this thread I contacted him to buy a scale. He got right back to me. He said he had one 'set to ship on Wednesday'. I sent him payment. Check cashed. No scale.

    I wish I could say my experience was different.....but it wasn't. I did finally get mine back, however.

    I have a few scales from Scott sitting here that are spot on. I just checked one with my FX120 to be sure they are exactly the same to take on the road next weekend for some load development at 1K. He really knows what he is doing. Unfortunately it is just a side thing for him & his organization with time & shipping is less than stellar to say the least. I can pretty much assure you that is isn't ripping you off and when you get the scale it will be all you had been hoping it will be.
    I hope this helped even maybe a little bit with your concerns......

    Regards
    Rick

    He currently has an ad to sell a barrel here:
    mullerworks-224”-barrel-blank-for-sale.3953823
    so he must be at least looking at PM's.

    Although it took a while, I send a scale for upgrade to Scott with a check and I received it back working as promised.

    Same here; an old Ohaus 10-10. Took about nine months to return. When it arrived I verified against my A&D then put it away.
    Hasn't been touched since.

    Small businesses take more turnaround time, I would suggest not trashing a man on the internet until you know the facts.
    I've waited a year to get a pistol built that's just the way it is'

    Were you given a time frame on how long the pistol would take to do?
