It's just about hit the 2 month mark for me since the order was placed, and I didn't get it custom tailored.
Mind you it's pure shipping delays at this point, but I have never heard of a package going through a completely different Countries customs.. If it went through the U.S Border, and then into the Canadian, I could understand.. but to from China, to Russia, and onto it's next spot which is anyone's guess...
Yea that route is bizarre. I am not surprised on the shipping time though as I've always heard they take forever. When you bought your custom tailored tunic how did you give them the measurements? Did they ask you about it after you bought it or what. I am still trying to figure it out.

Took a few emails, but Gavin got back to me, in a nut shell the emails are as follows:
I asked them what website should I use to track my order. They asked if I placed my order. I told them yes and when, provided the tracking number I got. They told me to contact my post office. Knowing that my post office would know nothing, I just asked if any of this sounded weird to them.. They said a bit, probably got lost or stolen.
Told Gavin my post office said such, they offered to refund or ship it again.
Asking them to ship it again, hopefully they ship it perhaps a bit better and luck is on my side.

So guys and possible gals.. things take a turn for the most interesting...
Gavin has been pretty prompt and speedy with the emails, they asked what email did I send my money to. Unsure, it took some digging, as I paid just through the website.
Only later to find out, supposedly they were hacked last month and the email I sent money to was the fake. Now, I have to ask.. what the heck was shipped then? Could have been easily a fake package, sure. My order was not exactly last month, late March (27th/28th) late enough I suppose... On that note, it's past the 45 days Paypal allows you to file a claim, I am unsure if they will be co-operative in this situation or not. We'll find out.
In the end, possibly out $130 which isn't horrible, but somebody possibly has access to the information on the Paypal account.
For those wondering, the email that it was sent to was "firstname.lastname@example.org"
I would suggest anyone doing orders with Gavin, email them on the website to confirm where you are sending money with any further orders, continue to confirm until satisfied. Why they did not post a big warning on their website or something to notify people, is beyond me...
That really stinks! How did you pay with paypal? If you used a credit card just file a claim through the credit card company. I've heard paypal isn't very good with that type of stuff. I did that once directly through my credit card company and I got my money back with no problems.
Dracul: It looks like it lost a lot of steam and I now feel bad for randomly dropping off.

stuka: I mean it's not your fault. It is interesting though that things are falling off as we are finally getting our ww2 guns with the type 38/96 and the enfield as well as it recieving a new loading system, it's kind of unfortunate

Dracul: I don't know, maybe its because all the guns are becoming available, there is a decreasing need for the forums.

Dracul: Most of the talk was about making guns, as all the uniform info was already out there, but now the weapons are out there and are usually decent quality.

stuka: well the forum is and should still be useful for updates on guns, creating groups/events and building kits

Cpl. Hicks: I haven't been here in years, but I'm glad to see this forum is still kicking! So much great info on here.

savoy6: anyone know if anyone still carries the enfield?

Dracul: I think Redwolf has a Enfield. If not or not longer, then not until G&G releases theirs. The old gas Iron Airsoft brand SMLE isn't carried by anyone anymore and was such piece of crap. Not worth trying to track one down.
