Weatherby.....so done....

After over 7 months I still do not have my rifle back…I am done with Weatherby…I bought a First Lite 6.5x300 rifle and it shot no better than 3 MOA…dealer shipped it back and I have received nothing but the runaround from weatherby…have been told rifle was at the range for testing for 3 months, maybe the range is in Russia ? I have been patient, but my patience is gone…if it comes back and meets accuracy guarantee ? I will be selling or trading it off…no more Weatherby’s of any kind for me…

I always throw the shit fit and ask for the higher-ups in command. I’ve never been able to get anywhere dealing with the first idiot that answers the phone. There’s a good chance they’re having some quality control issues that’s why they are not giving you a straight answer or a fast return would be my guess. I hope all works out well for you and you get it back quick in great working order.

I hear you brother.
I will never ever ever ever ever buy another product from ISSC for the same reason.
I’ll spare you the long version and cut to the chase.
A year and a half of dealing with a warranty claim.
Innumerable phone calls, emails etc. Always being bounced around or told to call back in two weeks, or a month etc.

My pistol ended up being sold to someone else. Yes, sold to someone else.

ISSC finally sent me another one after I proved to them that I actually purchased my pistol and actually sent it in to them. Thankfully I had kept ALL my records or I would have been totally screwed!
Never again!
Worst warranty service EVER!

the Gods of Rugerforum.net kicked me off when I had issues with Ruger products and the, Ruger has the best warranty in the business, bar none…I had a Ruger SR45 pistol that broke on the 3 rd shot…mag release feel out and locked mag in pistol, sent it back and Ruger said it was fixed and fired 50 rounds malfunction free…took to the range and it broke again on first magazine, slide would not lock back, had 2 other people shoot it and same thing…sent it back…got it back again with a long list of what they replaced and they again said they fired 50 malfunction free rounds through it…took to range and slide still would not lock back on last round fired…even with new magazine and the 2 I already had…sold that POS…the Rugerforum.net guys attacked me for telling other people about it…I told them a Good warranty is one you never have to use due to the quality of the product and ruger builds a lot of junk…other people who posted of all the issues they had with ruger products were literally attack by other forum members saying they were just making stuff up since ruger builds nothing but the best…I will never own another ruger semiauto pistol and now Weatherby has lost me also…my rant…

Yeah, I have seen some of these brand-specific gun forums mimic a gated community. Where your doors have to be the right color, mailboxes only allowed to be one color excetera excetera. Never ever talk anything but praise or they will throw your ass out.

Dude, I’m really sorry to hear that. I remember you telling us the first time that you had ordered that rifle.
I hope it gets back to you quickly and accurate too.

lo and behold after my last email saying I would contact BBB and my state CPA my rifle is back at dealer…according to dealer Weatherby ppwk that came back says rifle meets accuracy guarantee with the 140 Swift AFrame factory ammo, which is the worst long range ammo made for the caliber…Weatherby ( supposedly ) did not have any of the factory 140 Berger VLD ammo to test ??? which is the best long range bullet for the caliber…the 127 LRX’s did not meet accuracy guarantee which is the second best bullet offered in factory ammo…If true I have a 6.5x300 caliber rifle that fails at what it was meant for…I was not planning on reloading for this caliber due to barrel life…we will see come next range trip…hopefully it shoots good enough so that someone will buy it…

I have a Eagle arms ar 15 made buy Armalite. After the first two magazines it started acting like it had a binary trigger it would fire when you pulled the trigger and when you released it but would not reset when you put on the safety. I sent it back and they replaced the trigger and had it back to me in one week . Now ups was a royal pain in the ass but the gun is perfect now.
