beware bwalton
« on: January 09, 2019, 06:14:59 PM »
My first experience with Bwalton PCP was positive. I sent him my Eldy .35 big bore barrel to be threaded for one of his ldc's. Good communication, he sent photos of the barrel and the ldc and shipped it back quickly.
So.... when I was ready to get another airgun I ordered a BullBoss from him and asked that he do one of his tunes for me. That was July 25th 2018.
 On Aug 20th I sent an email asking if he had a price for the tune and he wrote back "Yes its done just $225, you can send a check out money order"
Sept 14th I am still asking for a tracking number. Was told about family problems, so he wasn't home to ship.  Will ship it Fri, 21 of Sept.
Sept 25th when asked again about the shipping number got a text "Let me check I know that a few sent out yesterday which rifle was yours
Sept 27th after 2 more texts to him asking for tracking number was told it did not ship because he had to replace a part, the air leaked out over night.
Oct 1st, after sending 2 more texts asking about it was told that he needed to order a part
Oct 12th said the part should arrive tomorrow
Oct 29th was told that it looked good and would ship out
Nov 8th and still not shipped, he is spending time with family member in hospice
So I disputed the order with my charge card and  am still out the $225.00 for the tune.

Another good reason to use PayPal. Then you’re protected.
But, that protection doesn’t apply to the “Friends & Family” though. Something to keep in mind. 💡

I am compasionate to a family member falling ill..
But a July 25th to today and still nothing? That seems VERY excessive.
So you are out the $225 for the tune plus the BullBoss he wont send you?
That is so wrong.

I used Paypal for the BullBoss, so got that money back.
But not the money for the tune

This is nothing new with Bwalton.

Sad, he has some good videos, and people have commented well on the work he has done. But I have been reading these repeated stories in the last year that never seem to end with this guy. Travelling, health - his or a family memeber - parts, etc. etc etc..
Shame.

I've been away from GTA for at least 3 years so please pardon my ignorance, but the bwalton I recall from the forums here was a pretty nice guy and a very active member of the forums.  I never met him face to face and never did business with him so what little I knew about him was through the forums.  Is this the same guy and, if so, what happened?  Probably should post privately through messages rather than publicly here.

Yeah Baxtor Walton was a nice guy who did good work, but started to inflate his accomplishments.
I don't know what happened to him ....... its a shame -> just don't send him anymore work or $$ :(.

Just do a search for him here and and AGN if you are on there and you will see what has happened in the past year or so. There have been a few post about his services.
