Well-I have a report on International Military Antiques for ya Rhino!
I ordered a white parade sling for my Vimy Vet.(Price was $14.95).
They STRONGLY suggest you use UPS expedite-so I did.
My $14.95 sling became $43.95.
I was impressed with how fast it got here & how they inform you via e-mail its progress.
I wasnt impressed with the sling...or they're lack of customer service.
What arrived was a Khaki/light tan sling, instead of the WHITE ordered/advertised & pictured.
I used they're customer service e-dress to contact them & explain situation, & enquire re: my options.
After 2 enquiries I have yet to recieve a reply.
Far as I'm concerned...they are one to avoid.

Rhino-not 10 minutes after I posted that report I got 2 e-mails from them.1st one apologizing for the fact I wasnt happy & explaining the return proceedure.
The 2nd defending the fact that he recieved the complaint on Friday...& was responding on Teus.2 business days later.
well-thats not quite right.I sent it THURSDAY night.
I find it "co-incidental" they replied immediatley following my posting.
I find it puzzling he was asking if there were initials on the invoice..asked for a picture of the sling & invoice...& wanted to know if it was a tan sling or aa white one that has some of the "blanco" chipped off.
No matter..we'll see how they handle this stage.
Keep you posted

Well-final report on International Military Antiques is in.Not very good.As previously noted I wasn't satisfied with the sling.I enquired to them & was told I could return it.I specifically contacted them for any special instructions re: return proceedure-& followed they're instructions.
Today I rec'd confirmation of they're reciept of returned item.Now I recieved a phone call-telling me that they will no longer do business with me! The guy readily agreed that the sling doesnt look anything like the one in the picture..& that they will fix that.But it was a"new condition" Khaki sling..nothing wrong with it(note:WHITE PARADE SLING ordered)Further-I returned it via UPS.(Thats wot they SAID to do) Now he's pissed cause UPS billed them $40..completely negating any profit they can make on a sale with me.(Duh!) As I had said before-they want me to use UPS express & my $14.95 sling became $44.00!! Now he tells me to return it expense paid-he gets a bill from UPS(like I did) & he's pissed @ me!
(I still have our entire conversation saved in my mail inbox) Now the guy says he will no longer deal with me..OK-so be it.
So-Theres MY report on these guys.For what its worth

The owner banned me from buying there also. Bought 3 No4T mounts from them and the scope only fit in one. They told me that was not true, how would they have known? Back bottom ring was not cut right. I had to pay shipping back to them and they would not send me two more, owner said I was a smart ass and not to buy from him ever again. Dealt with them many time before and need any problems when I had to return a few things.

 

So basically they suck !

Well hey..I didn't post it way back in my expose of them...but he called ME a smart ar$e,as well.
I dunno how people like that can manage to stay in biz..especially in THIS economic environment.(Boggles the mind)
