I posted the story, early this morning, about the bad experience that my buddy had in buying a POF 416 rifle from CWS, and how they had swapped the upper assembly out on his rifle!

My original post is gone! Where did it go????

Is this censorship of "freedom of speech"?????

I saw the original post and I believe it didn't have anything in it that warranted a delete job. The only issue I had was that you buddy should have reviewed the purchase with the vendor and when he picked it up he should have checked it all out before he left the shop. The word "ASSUME" seems to relate alot to this story and I'm sorry that your friend was not a little more savoy in his purchase of this weapon. Good luck!

This is Kest's baby and the responsibility of the moderators and if your comments are deemed necessary for a delete or ban they will neuter your posts or give you a time out wether you think its right or not. I was banned for 3 days once for name calling because I called someone a "meathead" So you live and learn!

When a thread devolves in to name calling and personal comments it generally gets locked.
Rarely if ever does a thread get back on track without more problems once that point has been reached.

The topic is not 'forbidden' but the bickering, insults and rude behavior is.

I haven't had the time to respond to your PM yet but it's not your religious views that were the issue.
It was a case of both presentation in a moderately rude manner and I suspect a misinterpretation of what was being said.

More clarification in the PM reply when I can.

I followed that thread until it got locked. It was actually useful info until people started calling people names and stuff. It was a good example of "be careful what you buy in a state where the holding dealer has 10 days to either lock it in a safe or do whatever they want to do with it." I'll definitely be more careful about specifics when buying a handgun or rifle based on that thread.

I can' tell if you are trolling, sarcastic, or silly. This is a privately owned forum. This means one should act as politely as they would if they entered another person's home. Not everyone holds to this standard, but it's a good thing to aim for. It's owned by someone else - not you - so they make the rules. If you own a forum, you make the rules. It's that simple. Courtesy goes a long way, at least IMHO.

Number 1...Nobody swapped uppers...

I've spoken to your friend..Jeremy and Adam the salesman...

There might have been some confuson but we'll work it w/ Jeremy and I am pretty sure he'll leave w/ his money or another type of gas piston rifle....

So far all your spreading is LIES....which, I am sure that Kestryl can mod out at any level he sees fit....

We haven't had any POF 5.56 uppers or rifles in over two months....

I have never had a problem you guys, I hope it gets cleared up and it sounds like it will. All your NorCal folks at the shows are cool most of the time...I.E. SFRONTMAN...and my friend Holly that does your transfers...;) And all your regulars.

I also think the thread should have continued so at least for future reference when drama is started in a public forum, it's resolved in a public forum. Looks better for the both of you...

I don't mind people wanking as long as it's legit.....

In this case it's not....simple...

We had three of these types of rifles.....I specically told my sales to inform customers that they weren't gas piston rifles.....they looked cool as hell....we never swap stuff out period....all rifles are sealed at the gunshows and not opened until they are picked up at the shop....unless custom work is requested on said rifle....
