I don't see a problem with the warning. There are ALOT of people on the "other" forum that have had issues.
But I also think that some of those issues belong with the leaders of the forum also.
Magparts apparently is EXTREMLY busy or just doens't care. Either way I am not sending my $$ to them to
risk it

What's wrong with you bravo? The site admin warns you and you still take a poke at a respected member of the forum. Be constructive, contribute something useful or go away.

Sounds like constructive criticism to me.
I'd consider it if I were you.

hm.. reminds me of myself (i'm the second eldest out of 4 kids). Man could i push my older brothers buttons! I'm surprised i didn't get the living sh!* beaten out of me. I got to hide behind my parents rules of "no beating the living sh!* out of siblings" rule (in so many words).

I ordered from them a month ago. Emailed them two weeks ago. No communication from their end. Apparently Mike Hammer is no longer CEO. I think the entire business is under new management. After placing my order, I found only poor reviews of their services. Products are supposedly excellent, but Mike is/was an apparent swindler. Another 5.7 forum has an entire forum on magazineparts.com complaints and experiences. So, if you are considering buying from magazineparts.com at this moment, heed my warning and DO NOT.

Last year i ordered a side rail from MP, got it prompt and it's excellent. However it has been noted that it has been recent orders that are having issues.

The point of friction is here seems to be a disagreement of who is to blame. It seems some are having a problem with a business and they are directing their displeasure towards the business, but there are others with the same issues that are attacking a person and slinging mud on that persons name.

Please, tell people if you think a certain business isn't good to buy from (especially online) but be careful when you go after a person. Yes there are people that are swindlers and scammers, and they start multiple lines of fraud and it is important to tell people to stay clear of a person then.
From what I have read here though, it seems more like a single business and it's not able to fulfill orders. Unfortunately it also sounds like this inability is not being handled properly, but this is still a single business with problems, not a single person who is behind multiple business "fronts".

Take care and caution before you slander someones name. "a good name is more valuable than riches" A good name is also much harder to regain than material valuables.

It is also through your actions and words here that you are building a name for yourself, so type softly and don't push and nip at people, unless you want to build a bad name, which is very hard to work your way out of.

Thanks to this forum, I was cautious about ordering from mag parts. But to be fair I tried e-mailing them just to see if I got a reply before I sent in an order. At the same time I e-mailed promotedpawn to see what their response would be.

Mag parts never responded, promoted got right back.

The order went to promotedpawn and they delivered as promised.

Never a bad idea to contact a business first if you're unfamiliar with it.

I think the big thing here is to let our forum brethern know of potential issues with companies.
Not to bad mouth a specific person. Just because he may have issues in business, he may not be
a bad person.

Promoted pawn is an awesome business! Very fast shipping and great products. I would definitely recommend checking them out if anyone hasn't.

I ordered from them, magparts, a couple years ago and received good service. I have spoken to Mike on the phone and he was very polite and informative. I actually called him about the quad rail handguard. He said he had a couple in his personal stash and would, but didn't want to sell me one. I didn't push the issue and just ordered up other items. I looked at their website and found this;

Recent News and Updates
Normal Business has Resumed - 18-FEB-2010

We just went through a massive reconfiguration of almost everything over the past couple weeks. We will be contacting all customers directly by Monday. Normal ordering and shipping will be back up by Monday Feb-22. Please use discount code 24456 to Save 15% off your entire order during this month!


I believe in "do unto others as they have done unto you". Magparts has never done anything bad to me, so I can say nothing bad. But from others cautions, do your research and make you own decisions.

I ordered from Magparts a couple of times. The first time it took almost a month for my order to get to me (26 days if I remember right) but it was postmarked the day after I placed the order so it was USPS' fault, not Mike's.

However, I did try to contact him during this time to verify the order was actually shipped (USPS never updates the status until it actually delivered) and never got a call or email back.

So - communication sucked but Mike did do his job as far as filling the order & getting it out. He offered to try to make up for it on the next order but it wasn't worth the hassle of reminding him :D

Second time was just a brass catcher & I had no problems at all with the order or shipping.
