    Avoid airsoft station like the plague. Theyre apparently notorious for taking your money and never shipping out your order. Theyre also refusing to refund me on a 200$ order so now thats tied up with paypal. I had placed an order for a gate titan and some build parts. Prices seemed to be good. I wish I had read the reviews before I gave them money. They are notorious for not shipping orders out. I filed 3 tickets to figure out what was going on with my order since it had never shipped. I received the same generic we will contact shipping and get ahold of you. I ended up canceling my order after 3 weeks of not shipping the items I paid for. Definitely a business to avoid as they had no problem canceling my order but the refund is another story. I have to fight to get my money back

    The owner is "not in town"...in Mexico last I heard with his latest fling.

    The people running the place in lieu of his absence...ticks that know nothing about Airsoft. Who is bleeding the owner "Nick" dry...his own fault for choosing his workers and being an owner in abstentia...

    This is not new behavior for them. I even was speaking to a former employee of theirs and he said its always been this way. Judging from the reviews on fb, they're notorious for taking your money and never shipping the product. Apparently also notorious for shipping broken guns and not honoring the warranty

    For every good story I've heard 20 bad. Ive legitimately had better luck with Chinese retailers. Im at the point now where I won't deal with the smaller shops and will just stick with evike.

    I saw a bunch of complaints about getting fried aegs right out of the box and when the buyer sends it back its automatically tampered with or some bs excuse.

    Really sorry to hear that. Go to whom ever you paid with they will get you a refund. PayPal or credit card

    What? I’ve had trouble with retails before and they almost always side with the card holder. You have to keep on them.

    That was airsoft station saying that in response to me filing a dispute on paypal. They admitted that my order had not even been picked yet as well as per their policy, i should have been refunded immediately which i was not. Thats why i filed the dispute.I know paypal will refund me. Theyre just being dicks at this point. But thats also why I strictly use PayPal for all online purchases. They almost always side with the buyer

    I’ve had HORRIBLE Luck with evike. Better with station but I won’t shop at station. If I shop at station I email them and ask to make sure everything is in stock first. If a business has an option to contact staff I almost always do.

    Which is technically illegal to sell to and ship to some States. Thus the potential issue with Fedex.

    I used to work for them it's not like them to take the money and run but then again with how they treated me and my friends who worked there this does not surprise at all I know the owner as well he is never in state and the GM does not know how to keep good employees at all and he also hired a new manager that knows nothing about airsoft to run the retail store I won't shop there if I don't have to and if I do I go in person because I have a friend that works there so I only really want to deal with him.
