BUYER BEWARE ebay sellers are dumping bad parts

Recommended Posts

 A recent romp through ebay I was checking out 1911 parts and found quite a few had obvious problems like too deeply throated so the case would not be supported one had a missing ear off the lugs was missing another had a ding in the crown of the muzzle good size one. used or new some on ebay sell seconds and as long as they are well documented and good pictures a buyer can know if they can alter or fix them to a special market if the price is right buying a hundred at pennies on the piece the ones that do work can be sold and a general profit made.

other parts can be made junk by over polishing or file work it is always good to look at the sellers return policy and or seller feedback if it is less than 99.3 and the number of sales is low best to click on the feedback number and look at the remarks but also take them with a grain of salt some people are never satisfied and nitpick and shipping lag is a sticking point but ebay sellers if they are ranked as high quantity bulk or thousands of sales a month get preferential treatment and feedback is limited some it is almost impossible to lodge a complaint I have had only a few problems but when you do it is usually a real pain.

Remember to double check the origin of the item and really look at the shipping cost some of the real pricks try to double their profits by unqualified costs but remember if it is larger than flat rate shipping boxes it is going to be a higher price and irregular size shape or length not all shipping cost are unreasonable but buyer beware. I do not mind a bit of overcharge labels ink as to and from etc plus the cost of ebay and or paypal can be up to 20%

it is best to know what your buying and what it should looks like originally ask questions but not a day before the auction ends expect the further away the longer it takes shipping from China a couple of weeks to a month I bought some wrist bands for VBS and planned ahead bought them 2 months early got them in 3 weeks well withing the agreed time and seller and I are both happy. expect one out of a hundred buys or sells a problem may emerge if there are more it is either a expectation problem on your end or generally you did not do your due diligence and check shipping cost place it's being shipped from or check the buyer or sellers feedback or feedback score abd like I stated if it is lower than 99.3 and less than 100 sales a month you might ought to find another seller of the item you want that has a better score IMHO.

    • Build that wall KEEP THEM OUT !  Am I talking about Arizona,  California, New Mexico,Texas NO NO NO I'm taking about the Oscars they build walls use barriers and fencing , they check Identifications have armed security and police and do not allow the huddled masses to just hang out.  Kinda two faced isn't it 
    • When Hell freezes over ! we have all heard it, but like a lot of things no one believed it would ever happen, well it did Winter weather isn't just battering the eastern US. It's even snowing in Las Vegas
    • Beyond the reason that it is just bad / evil to purvey violence all MAGA supporters should not use violence unless defending themselves and as a last resort we see where it would only be used against them and giving the opposition fodder to use against the MAGA movement.
    • The show Empire is thinking about replacing or removing Smollett LOL. I was just wondering if this was a white actor in black face how long it would take for them to think about replacing them ........
    • Well one out of all their records -- their a punk band not exactly historians or geopolitical graduates  Here is another one that seems to work with today's system look at 41 seconds in. Houston we have a problem, a no knock warrant on the wrong people (partially guessing here) Jan. 28 raid and shootout at 7815 Harding St. that left five officers injured and two suspects dead.  because the Officer took i on himself t get a warrant and "call" from a woman accusing the home owners of allowing her daughter to shoot heroin in the home??? it's all pretty sketchy right now. because both victims were white IMO the city and chief are trying to ride this out and hope it goes away. Like any good democrat the chief will not resign LMAO they love being the Captain till the ship goes down on their watch, and it does not matter how many people die, it ain't their fault, well the no knock police he owns because he has been chief for long enough. Since when do you send in a swat team for a 2 people 58 and 59 that had no previous record ?  The police know that there are 5 different motorcycle gangs that do all kinds of shenanigans they don't send swat on them and they know where they hang out, that is the rub police know where dope houses are and some lone ranger decides to take down 2 old people ? it is insanity. The whole case against these 2  58-year-old Rhogena Nicholas and 59-year-old Dennis Tuttle is gut shot, any evidence is in question because of the low threshold of the warrant the political and police pressure to close ranks and back the blue not to mention the officers in on the raid see their careers and possible prison time could have tried to cover for themselves ( or it could be made a case for) I want to know where the oversight was, fact checking and as in most investigations there had to be more than one buy and usually video or wire recording . This is a travesty of justice even if they were guilty as they had NO opportunity to make their case in a court of law, they had no previous record and a warrant on one call and unsupported  accusation.  Their rights were trampled and the bar of truth was on the ground.  In the warrant, the sergeant says that Officer Gerald Goines, of HPD’s Narcotics Division, provided officers, including a high-ranking narcotics division supervisor, two different names of confidential informants. The warrant stated the two officers, “interviewed all of the confidential informants and all denied making a buy for Goines from the Harding Street residence, and ever purchasing narcotics from Nicholas or Tuttle.” This happens every day in America and when it goes bad police have been known to plant evidence loose evidence and back paper to cover.Judges have taken sexual favors bribes worse the D.A.'s have people still in prison after DNA has proven them innocent yet still refuse to file paperwork to release them and have the real suspect in prison as well. Just as morality and truth slides in our culture so it does in all our agencies. truth is relative to feelings and view point politics conviction rates and personal opinion I don't see justice anywhere. 2:18
