First of all, I would like to thank Tikka Shooters Forum for giving me the opportunity to write my post. It's nice to have a place to share something that everyone has in common. In this case it's Tikka rifles. I have no ill-will towards Waters Rifleman I think he has a great product. I was a little hard on him but in the beginning I didn't know if his business was legit or not. I know it wasn't his fault that my order got lost, I just didn't like being hung out to dry looking for a package that I didn't ship and I don't think any of you would like it either especially when you pay top dollar for a magazine. I'm retired, my background was sales management and customer service was and is my first priority. I'm not one to be taken for granite and I'll call you out on the carpet if you step on my toes. Like you, I want to be treated the same as you like to be treated.
It's October 1st today and my two missing magazine half's showed up in the mailbox. I'm puzzled as to why Economy Air International would take 25 days for shipping when the first package only took 10 days and the packages were mailed a day apart. I don't know David Waters business but he should know how his shipping works. He could have calmed me down if he told me he would look into the shipping and explained some of his past issues. Maybe this package was stuck in Customs and maybe not and maybe David shipped out another set of magazine half's. I'm not going to question it because I now have two 10 round mags and I'm looking forward to using them. My personal review on these magazines are good. They load ten rounds, they fit nicely into the rifle, the bullets slide nicely into the chamber and the bullets eject nicely. I hope to enjoy shooting my Tikka Tactical even more and without any more missed loads.
By sharing my experience, hopefully none of you will make the same mistake I did. If you order from Waters Rifleman be sure you use the Pay-Pal option and make sure you insure your package. Based on what I've seen with his mags, their worth owning, a bit pricey but nicer than those plastic mags. I am also hoping David Waters has learned something about customer service and treats you better than he treated me. If possible, I think it would be good for David Waters to get some inventory shipped to the States or made in the States for the American buyers. That would sure take the pain out of shipping individual half mags when he could ship complete magazines and also tracking his shipments. Thanks for listening and in the future I'll be checking-in on the Tikka Shooters Forum.
ps; It was mentioned that David Waters was fired from Goodyear. I don't know how that's relevant but maybe he was fired because he messed up or maybe he was fired for standing up for his co-workers and management didn't like that. I respect that, there's nothing wrong with getting fired when you believe you've done the right thing. Haven't you been fired?
