Buy a few of them in bulk to save on the DROS fee. Otherwise this deal is only $10 cheaper than the $99 price I often see on JD lowers. Also does Turner's still charge an extra $5 for document fee/admin fee on top of the $25 DROS? If they do you only save $5, but I guess savings are still savings and if your local to a Turners this is a decent deal.

Hmmm.....

1) These were a closeout; we sold quite a few and they are nice enough- most folks really liked them but there was an occasional QC or cosmetic issue. So we closed them out and turned to better known (and extremely consistent quality) lowers like JDM for a few bucks more.

2) The store dropped the ball- no bones about it. They shouldn't have taken a deposit and more so they should have followed up much sooner- period.

3) Most importantly- we'll take care of you. PM on the way.

You might want to pass that along to your employees. I went to the San Bernardino store around 6:30 and put one on "layaway" (paid in full). I was told they don't know when they will be getting them back in stock and made it sound like it was going to take a long time.

I got off the plane from Mexico City yesterday and saw the email on my phone drove straight to the Reseda store. Randy was very upfront about the stock issue and quoted me two weeks. Put my money money down as quick as possible, wasnt planning on building an AR yet but at that price what the hell. At least the "hard part" will be over and it can kick around the safe for awhile until I do something with it.

JDM usually ships us 100 or 200 at a time. But their shipping is killin' us (or them) right now. We got an initial shipment of 25 and we just got another 25. Hopefully they step it up and finish this off in bigger amounts.

And we've gotten on a few stores for falling behind on notifying folks on their deposits. E-mail Rob Z. (robz@turners.com) if you have issues or concerns that he can help you with if that happens.

Ditto for us- had we known or thought that JDM would not be shipping our order complete, we would not have put their receivers in the Weds special or any other ad.

It seems that they are "rationing" guns out to many folks at once as opposed to completely filling our 100-200 piece orders like they did before. Instead, we are getting about 25 every 5 to 7 days.

If you (or any CGN member) wants to roll into the Palmetto State Armory at the CGN price from our special (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=542810) a few weeks back, you can do so.

We ran the special based on JDM promising 200+ lowers for that ad; likewise that ad went to all of our customers so the response was huge- compounding the whole shipping issue. We're annoyed as you guys are. And we understand if you have a preference for the JDM. They are still milking that order- shipping 20 to 25 a week. We know you want the lower and frankly we want to complete the sale, but we'll gladly roll your $90+ into another purchase or refund it for you outright. It's your call; we understand.

At rate of 20-25 per week, the guys at the back of the line are going to be waiting a few more weeks. Palmetto State has an order of 500 that they say will ship by next week; they've been consistently good with following those orders through.

As mentioned above, let us know what you want to do- wait on the JDM's and keep your place in line, swap to the PSA when those arrive here in the week or so, roll into another purchase or even take a refund.

Availability of lowers is going to be crazy for the indefinite future- folks are stockpiling them for insulation against new laws and with long gun registration on the horizon for CA, it'll stay tough throughout 2013.

Yeah I have heard that before from another member that went to cancel there order well. I just cant justify the time to drive down to Reseda from Santa Barbara to be jerked around. I would be pretty pissed if they pulled sonething like that on me and more than likely being the stubborn Polock I am I would still tell to give me my money back.

I am not a Turners hater yet but there is a reason the last four fire arms I bought in the last three months were not purchased from a Turners store.

Oh I still canceled and got my money back.


I really hope upper management reads this. This whole experience really turned me off to Tuner's. I work in sales and understand trying to keep a customer but don't flat out lie to me. I don't appreciate being lied to, between that and the whole hassle of the buying process this will be my first and only time I try to buy anything from Turner's again. From what I have read here on Calguns it seems there needs to be a lot of retraining going on and less excuses.

I was called last week and I stopped by on Sunday to DROS it. Turners isn't my favorite place but I don't think this is Turner's fault.
