Something is definitely not right. I have been in communication and done business with Sergio for years. In the past he has always replied right back to me when an issue arose. This time I've gotten no response from him. Not like him at all. Will keep everyone posted when/if I hear back from him. He has always made excellent products and paid close attention to details. And always stood behind everything he made and sold. This business is a tough one and we see makers come and go. Sad but true. I hope he is not on the outgoing side of making airgun parts!!!

This is a pretty old thread.  And while communication was severely lacking.  Products were always delivered as they were supposed to be.  Just be patient.  He does good work.

Ok , thank you for your reply mate and yea I need remind myself to be patient , plus I donít mind waiting if I know itís going to be a wait even a rough estimate but itís the not knowing and checking my email for tracking No. every time the ď ping ď sounds and every couple of hours for 3 weeks 😂 is frustrating and more so my impatience from the excitement of receiving the parts like a kid on Christmas morning - & I totally understand that things happen but just to be kept in the loop but moreover I understand that itís better that they are working on parts then replying to emails 😂👍 .

I just sent a couple of inquiries via their website and facebook page. It hasn't been 10 minutes since so I won't comment on communication but I was inquiring if he is still making breaches as it seems literally everything on his website is out of stock.

Does anyone know if his shop is still operational?

Cheers,

I noticed that too.....I ordered a shroud 15 business days ago. They said they would be shipping in 3 weeks which is now. I have been sending emails and nothing back!

I found that by calling early in the morning, when Serj. first gets there, he answers the phone,dnad is is quite pleasant to speak too.


Rest of the day, he is in oneof his two machine shoops. Can't talk on the phone and run machines. Good way to loose a finger, hand, arm!


Those who have never worked heavy machine tools, cannot understand the attention required. I allowed NO one in my shop,land no phone. A simple ring out of the blue can spell disaster!

The Bangkok breech is a pretty thing. And will be available again in a week or two. About $150. A shroud isn't so hard to make. Crosmans offers a breech, also. To each his own. Good luck with BNM.

I have sent an email via their website and also one from a previous email conversation Sergio and I had.  Could be the same email address used by the web form.  That was about a week ago and so far I have heard nothing.  I'm looking for parts availability and not waiting on a order to ship.  I notice on their website that most (not all) items are listed as out of stock.

As people have said before, waiting for parts to ship was normal, however he typically responded within a day or two to an email. 

I'm hoping the shop comes back to the surface soon as I'm wanting to order a .177 breech block and barrel/shroud band.
