Now... wonder what his next story will be? Reminds me of a fellow that did some work on my boat and did more damage than repair. when he seemed to be taking his time about solving my complaints and only blowing smoke up my butt, I went to Google and looked up his shop and put in a remark in his rating. I gave him one star and the reason why. There were few other ratings. Google let him know right fast that I had lambasted him and he bent over backwards to try to fix the problems I was aware of and begged me to change my remark and score. I let up on him at that juncture and complied. After the fact I found out some other problems I wasn't aware of, sad to say, but can't prove they originated with him.

From their Facebook account...............

Duncan Andrews What is the point of attending these events when they can't deliver orders that are over 12 months old?

Derbyshire Arms Ltd
Derbyshire Arms Ltd Orders all have a lead time, depending on what has been ordered, and sometimes as in your case where a new/replacement is needed that time would be extended, as it happens Duncan your musket is now packaged and waiting to be collected - the point of the events are to let people actually see us, as mostly our customers are based all over the UK and Europe, we are also re-enactors and we visit/re-enact different eras at events again all over the UK & Europe.


Will wait till it arrives and will comment further :evil:

Just received this answer to my lasted question to the buggers..............

Hello Duncan, we have had a few issues with parcel force about sending our products abroad, TNT have stopped their service completely, which is why we have been trying to use parcelforce. However, they sent it by air and it was returned. I have tried to find someone else who will carry it, but they failed to collect it. I've now got an agreement sorted out with parcelforce through the BASC and I will be putting your Baker back in the post from our main post office. It will though be coming overland not by air. As soon as I have got it sorted out I'll send you the necessary information so you can track it. Jeni

I TOLD them there would be shipping problems and they said "Oh we don't think so" Bunch of wan***s :shock: :shock:

He's got to be running out of excuses. Maybe this time you will actually see it. Hope so.

Doing nothing till it gets here ( :loco: :loco: ) but I shall then bugger his business up a bit with some very explicit information that he can't refute. And I may also report him to the Derbyshire Constabulary Firearms Dept because he is a RFD and if he sends the gun without a proof cert it's illegal in France. I shall check and see if the Birmingham Proof House issued one....................................
