Because there have been a number of posts talking about Wiselite Arms selling off parts in the last week or two, I thought it prudent to warn the membership about dealing with Wiselite arms or purchasing their parts.
We stopped offering products from Wiselite for the second time due to horrific and abusive customer support and more than one member here has reported significant problems dealing with them on the phone, and as a result stated they would never purchase from them again. A couple days later I found out what they were talking about, when one of their staff that appears to run the place wrote me an extremely derogatory email, stating I was wrong, when in fact I was correct. After I proved it in the following email things went downhill from there.
I emailed the owner "TONY" directly about the issue a number of times and to this days I have never received a response, which is no way to run a company, especially were they were offering the parts to the weaponeer community.
There have been far too many shipping errors from them, and in one case I had to intervene in one shipment when they shipped a machinegun receiver to a customer rather than a semi-auto receiver. I was the one that identified it was a machinegun based on questions from the customer due to the condition of the parts. The WLA "staff" was oblivious as to the issue, and it was me that saved them, and protected them from having a major legal problem.
Despite that, our members as well as I had more and more problems with the staff, and their projects slipping from weeks to 6 months, to never happening again. So it was the Weaponeer Members who were screwed in the end. Last I heard, they no longer had a C2/SOT FFL Licenses, and were dumping their remaining inventory of seconds (lesser quality parts) onto the market, especially Gunbroker.
Members can make up their minds if they wish to deal with a former Century Arms firearm manufacturer (they lost their contract with Century Arms) that is dumping its parts on the market that did not pass quality control for Century firearms.
I’m the owner and founder of Weaponeer.net, and I'm also a full time product tester and reviewer, and I cannot and WILL NOT recommend ANY products and/or services formerly from or currently from Wiselite Arms. I have not seen nor heard anything that would change my mind on that fact; in fact it's been entirely the opposite.
If you wish to take the chance and deal with them anyway, weaponeer.net will in no way be held responsible for their actions, products or services.
