possibly scammed?

Well i had an 2k3 bko that i sent to a member on here named foughtwolf
to be fixed and sent back. I've been trying to contact him, but he never replys back. So im hoping he will see this thread and try to contact me. Any suggestions on what i should do?

Hasn't been on in a couple of days. Have you given him longer than that to respond?
How long has he had it? Did you guys discuss a time table before sending it to him for work?

You really need to provide more information in a post like this. When did you send him the marker? Did he confirm that he got it? How long has he had it? What was wrong with it? Have you had any contact with him since then? How long has it been since you heard from him?

A month? Dude, I think you may need to relax here. Unless you arranged a specific time frame, that's not bad. Especially considering he has to source parts for it.
Keep this to PM's, no need to post this here.

You often do not know what parts you really need until the gun is sitting in front of you, then you are relying on someone else, and then you have to tack on the shipping time for that item to arrive, etc.

Time adds up really, really fast. Granted, sometimes its a case that the 'smith is waiting on funds to get parts for different customers,(ie punisher, etc), but thats not usually the case

To be fair, BKO parts are difficult to source at the best of times. That will slow things down too.

I doubt foughtwolf woulda scammed you...he seems like a very legit guy from his posts and hes been on mcb for a number of years. He's probably busy, and yes, it can take a lot of time to obtain and ship parts. I'm waiting for some empire sniper parts to come in and it's been taking weeks......
