In an effort to reduce the amount of stickies in this board, we're merging the rules sticky and the Buyer/Seller feedback thread.
Rules for /trade/:
In addition to the Global rules, one further rule is added. Do not comment on the price of an item unless you are interested in buying it. If you think the asking price on an item is unfair, it is none of your business unless you are the buyer or seller. Bidding, should the seller ask for bids, is allowed. Caveat Emptor.
Please post any and all buyer/seller feedback you have in this thread. You can find the first feedback thread here:
+1 for Sir Richard Mango. Drove 3 hours each way to meet up for our transaction, was early, and bought me lunch afterwards.
+1 for Cap, for selling me a complete, quality upper at an insanely low price, that allowed me to complete my PBEAR.
+1 for RandalltheFlagg for pouches galore at prices that milsurp stores would balk at.
+1 for Mammoth for including free pron with purchase.
These aren't for recent transactions, just ones that I've done during my time here, hope that's ok.
+1 For CC, we pretty much all know he's a bro.
+1 For Randall for helping me get some parts for my next build
+1 For FrankenGun. He sold me a mag and at the time my paypal was being dildos, he was patient while I got it un-intercoursed.
+1 Kain. He's bro-tier
+1 for Mr. R.D. I can't remember if he tripped or not. Bought a mini-MAV from him. Super fast shipper and excellent coms.
+1 PBE Store
Can't remember all the specific transactions, and if there's anyone I forgot, sorry!
+5 for ConcernedCitizen
+1 for Cap
+1 for NSWG
+1 for Sous_estime
+1 for Frankengun
+1 for RabbitKiller
+1 for RedRaptor
+1 for PBE Store
+1 for Jedi-Daschund
+1 for Rogue
...I know there's probably one or two more but can't remember :\
i don't know if OscarMike still posts, but a +2 for him for shipping over one of those original PBE patches all the way to pangoland for me.
I still post, mostly just browse though
oh and I post as OperatorMike now.
I know I can't DOX someone here so I'll give enough clue for people to watch out for this OPERATOR (he doesn't trip or name) he use to live in AZ which has been to one of the range me where serv and CC are both there. He also drove 4hrs from AL to one of the GA OpChan Range Meet with his fiancee too. I even bought them dinner like I said if they make the 4hr journey. Back in Taclink he posted his new born son and BTDT had edit the picture to cover up baby's ding-a-lang.
This show I've know him before this last incident
On May 11 he ask me to buy a stock for him off GunBroker and ship it to AZ and he said he will send a check include the shipping (he moved back to AZ from AL at the time). The stock made it there and I confirm that he received it, check never came.
Few weeks later he went dark, changed his cell phone and deactivated his Facebook so I couldn't get in touch with him at all. He hinted there was some trouble with his fiancee at the time so I let it pass.
July 27 I came across a Facebook page which looks like him and I message the person and turns out it was him and he even said: (He thought his ex-fiancee has paid for the stock already)
"Ah yeah, she said she did that already, like forever ago. Can't really say sorry about that since it wouldn't mean much, no excuse for it.
Just don't tell her about my FB if you will. Also, you been doing ok?
And I want you to know didn't "evade" you because I owe you money."
Still didn't see any money after that.
Stepember 9 - I send the last message to him:
"OPERATOR this is the last time I am going to hound you on this - about the money for the stock. Reply and let me know what you plan on doing about it, if not that would give me a clear answer also."
Still no reply so I've given up on this whole thing.
TL:DR - an OPERATOR lives in AL/AZ ask me to buy a stock for him and never pay me back. He knows quiet a few people on here so just want to make sure someone doesn't get jibbed.
+1 for Lulzmacher. Quick on communications and shipping. My KAC panels came in a USPS envelope with bubble wrap on the inside. Everything was well protected.
...there wasn't a love note, though...
+1 for temper.
hes the man who sold me the upper that allowed me to build this. god speed sir, god speed.
>...there wasn't a love note, though...
oh, I'm sorry. :(
I've been selling shit on eBay and trying to keep my clients and customers separate is hard :(
Alright, lets see if I can remember everyone I've dealt with recently.
+2 PanamaJack <- This dude tipped me $5.63!
And a shout out to starduks/txoperator who In a round about way got me me BC bcg and ch. Temper was looking to sell the complete upper and starduks/txoperator offered to buy it sans the aforementioned parts, thanks again man.
+1 to both of these guys, great buyers.
Well you did hold on to it for me, much appreciated.
+1 for jedi

+9001 for ConcernedCitizen
+9001 for Frankengun
+10 for Penis_
+2 for RandalltheFlagg
+1 for NSWG
Can't think of others off the top of my head but I do a lot of business with you guys.
-1 for Jedi Dachshund until I ship the camera Penis_ bought from me, it's been sitting and it isn't even the color he wanted originally and he's been a bro and hasn't bugged me about it. It eats at me though and it will until it's safely on its way.
+1 Frankengun, fast shipping, items in described condition
+1 Predator, same story
+Everything to CC.
+2 to RTF, continuing that number as well for basically being one of my go to guys for gear related things.

So, forgot to post the obligatory +1 awesome to ConcernedCitizen for being a top-tier OPERATOR.

Should have posted this a week ago, but...
+1 randall, everything came the way it should and fast too.
+2 to tacocat for his patience in receiving payment as well as quick shipping, as well as the extra goodies. Money well spent, and I'll have to break out the Ronsonol again.
+2 White Zombie, he's a true american hero with good prices and fast shipping!
this is positive feedback for nordic
+3 to White Zombie.
Got it here faster than I expect.
Sent extra goodies

>>2699Well, in all fairness, you did send me more dough than I expected. Seemed only fair to throw in some useful stuff, bro.
+1 to Dick Mango for the Surefire 951, speedy shipping, pay on Thursday and stuff came in Saturday.
+2 to Randalltheflagg for sending extras for Amnesty International, I send funds to make up for the extra cost for shipping.
+1 to SDL!!qvLJWxMQuy
Paid me quickly, quietly, and was a good sport about the holiday weekend complicating shipping.
Great deal on a great optic, with a great mount. Very well packaged. Would not hesitate to do business with Frankengun again.
+2 for Mango the mags arrived as the oracle predicted. Also he individually wrapped them in printer paper, way more care than I would have given.
It is a pity I will never get to use them because my cats have claimed ownership of them. Seriously, did you ship these soaked in catnip extract or something?
Mango draws all the pussy.
+1 to Ech0Sierra.
He shipped everything pronto and nicely packed (dem packing air pouch things) even though it was ammo and gave me proper tracking. Ech0 was a gentleman to deal with, and I would buy from him again.
"Awesome guy" sums it up
+1 for PanamaJack
Payment showed up all speedy like.
I went into the past to send money to the future.
More +1 for Buckeye and Jedi Dachshund
Both speedy shipping, laser works great just doesn't fit the Glock :( . If someone say the leg drop holster is brand new I'd believe them, that's how nice it came in.
Thank you guys both.
+1 for the mango man, railz arrived in good order.
+1 to Pants on being accommodating to a funky schedule
No thank YOU! Mammoth +1. Super fast payment and comms.

+1 to OPERATOR ID: aa0d42 for great deal on a stock in times of scarcity
+2 RandallTheFlag for gear giveaway, much appreciated.
All I can think of at the moment.
Plus to the motherfucking ONE for RTF.
Chaos is fucked.
Given your skinny-ness, that armor works very well for you.
I'd prefer it to be longer, I'm too tall for it to really cover much of me. It covers the heart and lungs, but I wouldn't mid it going down a bit further and covering most of my guts as well.
Still, it'd be the difference between the hospital and the morgue, and that's what I'm hoping for.
Well, you could always turn side-on to your attacker, and present the silhouette of a beanpole... =D
Also, before I forget, another +1 to RTF for helping me find, appraise and purchase an item.
+1 for cable, a $5 case for a $70 gun. Bonus utility knife appreciated
+1 to Kayaman
Excellent OD Green Condor Plate Carrier for half of what he paid for.
Even threw in some mag pouches, a CamelBak bladder container, a Condor map pack thing, and an ALICE LBV for free.
10/10 would mammoth and kayaman and breach again
Would Mammoth again, 10/10, A++++ seller, etc.
+1 to Predator for speedy communication/transaction/shipment; truly out-of-this-world service.
+20 for Mammoth for being wooly bro of mammoth proportions.
Not that it needs to be said again but Mammoth is a pleasure to deal with, would trade/buy from again without hesitation.
+6 To jimmbo for the smooth magazine trade.
+5 to Predator for the x6 mag pouch and...... artwork...
Glad you like the artwork lol
+1 §neakyGit - paid back the money he needed to get him by till G.I. Bill money came in. Didn't want to make a new thread to clog up /t/
To all the people who bought sights, thank you for putting a little extra and that covered all the packaging cost and shipping cost.
+1 to Tim Eales
Our trade hit a couple of speed bumps but we were able to work out a deal. He's a very reasonable guy. Would do business with him again.
Thank you again for being flexible and reasonable Tim.
+1 for Predator.
Mask was shipped out within the day, and was very polite to deal with. Definitely would repeat transaction. Thanks!

+ 1 for RandalltheFlagg for a great price and super fast shipping.

+1 for aircav. Excellent communication!
+1 for Kain, fast shipping and good stuff.
Beware of this individual, he has scammed at least two people here on OPchan:
Name: Aaron Morrison (Aaron Matzah Morrison)
Location: AZ and/or AL
If you receive any B/S/T offers from somebody that could fit this description, be careful. You can also get in touch with a staff member via IRC and we can run some additional checks.
Ditto. Got my camera two days after I paid him. He even sent it with fresh batteries.
Lol I just realized I forgot to take down the picture of my cat as the start up screen...meant to do that before I shipped. Enjoy I guess!
Thank you both for your purchases and kind reviews.
It was a strange potpourri of gear, self-shots airsoft and airplanes. I just assumed the cat was a stock picture and part of the normal camera startup. I'm keeping it
Ah, well, if you'd be so kind as to wipe any of the self shots (I doubt any are flattering). The gear shots and what not I'm not worried about, of course.
+2 to Tim-O for being a kewl kewl dude and hooking me up with what I need to finish my PBE AR.
+2 for GretchenBlackthorn
His two trauma shears came in quick and also included were two free info/trading cards about the M1A1 Abrams and the Patriot Missile System as well as a Cascadia pin to rock Cascadia pride@!
+1 and +1 for ID: 625098. Quick and prompt, very considerate, was willing to pay prior to me sending out the package. Reminder I think that as much as our tripfriends are solid and reliable people, we've a legion of 'nameless' balacava clad operators who exemplify the same virtues that make this site worth inhabiting!
+1 to ConcernedCitizen
Prompt payment, would do business with again.
+1 for GretchenBlackthorn, shears arrived and are of advertised quality.
It's amazing how things addressed to "Wienerdog Kenobi" still somehow make it to me.
+1 to Lulzmacher
would receive assorted bits of scrap metal from again.
+1 to Cable, Sig Mosquito arrived in good order.
+1 Sausage K9 Skywalker
for being the opchan embodiment of Saint Cajetan.
+1 to Tim-O sending me (not my) XM193 ammo for testing AR500 plate. He donated for OPERATOR SCIENCE!!!
P.S. - I deleted the old post to correct spelling, damn it I am retarded
