Met with ddatz15 to obtain a trade item, and I had clarified and verified that the finish on the upper was fine with this user over PM before staying that I would take it. The user stated that the finish on the upper receiver was good to go.
Once I got it home and cleaned it, a bunch of paint came off of it, and I was left with one rough and ugly upper receiver.
Ddatz15 promised to get me a replacement receiver, but then disappeared. I have sent numerous texts and PMs that are unanswered, and ddatz15 is still logged in to ODT and active (several times a day). There should be no reason for the lack of communication or for not keeping your word on the deal/resolution.
Item finish was OK but dirty, and I took it home to clean and store it for future use. When cleaning, the upper's black finish all came off because it was poorly painted.
I reached out to ddatz15 immediately, and eventually, ddatz15 promised to resolve the issue by replacing the upper with a black one:
Texted again yesterday:
The many texts and PMs going unanswered, after promising to resolve the issue with the trade item, is not a quality that I can give a positive or even neutral review. This is my 1st and only negative review here, and I kinda hate to post it... But, others need to know.
