I just bought a ICS M4 C15


Link: http://www.arniesairsoft.co.uk/forums/inde...&st=0&p=955175&


Now this advert clearly states upgrades I.e 3000 motor, 325fps etc


What arrived was an older model - 2000 motor, 280fps, nylon brushes etc


now where exacltley do I stand? It's gonna cost me £100 to get it up to the spec it was advertised as.


Please help!! :(

I've done that.


He says he wont refund me:


I sent -


Hi buddy,


Gun arrived today unfortunatley NOT as advertised.




Super Torque-Up Turbo 3000 Motor - NO, IT'S THE OLD CRAPPY 2000

High Quality Silicone Wiring System - STANDARD

Precision Cut Steel Reinforced Motor Pinion & Bevel Gears - STANDARD

Larger, Re-Designed Hop-Up System - NOPE, OLD VERSION 1

fire's 325fps - LUCKY TO HIT 280fps AS IT IS.

Not to mention the flimsy nylon bushings.


Problem is I ONLY bought this gun under the impression it was the 1J model. I already have a gun that shoots 280fps so I really don't need another. I've spoken with zero one and it's going to cost nearly £100 to get the gun up to the spec you sold it as.


If you could let me know what you can do to rectify the situation I would be grateful.







Response -



ZeroOne sold me this a few months back as its advertised on there site!!! now!


so they sold this under fulse pretence???

sorry Problem never noticed it before and there is nothing i can do now!


how do i know you have not done anything to it urself?




i never accept things back! on UKAS i sold a WA 1911 and the guy sent it back with scratches and the upgraded parts missing!


if ur not happy with it sell it! you wont lose any money

made me look like a fool as this swap was for a mate

i have all the pms he sent me as proof and im gonna take around to his house

and have to show his mum.

hi m8

shouldnt be sticking my nose in this but , come on the fella he is only young dont get giving him them sorta threats...he made a mistake , ok , i no becuase i live next store...


he said about all the pms and you were very annoyed which is very understandable considering the situation but i think giving a 14 year old beat him up threats is very imature... :waggle:


if its any concilation i will pay the 17 pound corrier charge if it shuts you up , i just fink that its a little harsh coming down on him....BUT ! i can understand were your coming from so ill have words and see if we can get this sorted out so it benefits you more than him for obvious reasons...


but as far as im concerned there will be no , ill go round his house and beat it out of him , becuase to be ohnest ill be there waiting , and his dad is one mean mother ##### matey....i wouldnt advise it he probaly put a sledge hammer threw your forhead lol

Fair enough,montymat

You make a good point about being immature but i just had enough of his lies and making me look like an *albatross* as this deal was

on behalf of a friend, and the amount of lies he has told me regarding this deal is rather

annoying to.

But i take your point on board and for once i will listen as long as this gets my money refunded, i have no bones about going round to his house dad being a nutter or not

as im in liskard in 2weeks.

So just to please you i will withdraw the offer of a beating if give him a slap for me and tell him to stop trying to rip-off the bigger boys LOL

cheers mate.

It kills me to do this but a while ago i sent beano £150 for a gigant,

he let me have the gigant in advance and a couple of days later i sent him

the money.

About 4 days later i phoned him and asked everything cool he said yep

Then a day or too later he said there was no money in the envalope,

I sent payment SD so he had to sign for it, he also said he had thrown away

the envalope.

I had a witness to prove i had put the money in and as per i wraped it in cardboard

to hide what it was.

To stop any arguments he said i could keep hold of the gun till he had a new

buyer then he would sort me out some cash, he sold the gun i even posted it for him and in return i got nothing.

Last week he was selling a couple of guns and i said i would have one but he said

no i tried to arrange another deal but he wasnt having it and then gave him 3 days to reply and nothing.

Im not saying BEANO stole my money but i am saying he didnt live up to his promise of £50

jesus il tell you what, i know its not an individual but guerilla only sent me part of my order on two occasions.


Its not so much the money but it was guns(and ammo)that i needed for a little backyard skirmish and even with order numbers and countless emails, i still, more than 6 months on, don't have what about £50 quid of my hard earnt money should have bought.


O well, all i can say is stay away from anyone that doesnt specialise in airsoft, even if it costs a couple of quid more

I placed an order with Zeroone


for 2 P90 boxmags (one for me, one for a friend) and a battery last Monday, needing the items for the following Saturday.


By Wednesday i'd heard nothing from ZeroOne so i phoned to see when my order was being sent. The person i spoke to told me the order would be posted that day. I explained that i needed the items by the weekend for a shoot.


Friday arrives, and so does a package from ZeroOne. Opening it, to my surprise i find the battery but only 1 boxmag!


After a lengthy phone call of complaint, and an email too, i've still not been sent the other boxmag or had it explained to me why the person on the phone on Wednesday didn't think to tell me that i wasn't getting my whole order, especially when she knew i needed the stuff quickly.


My email, so far, has been ignored. It seems to me that they'd rather keep the sale and disappoint a customer, rather than lose the sale to a competitor by admitting they didn't have it in stock. I doubt i'll order from Zeroone again unless i recieve some sort of satisfactory response.

Incredible, you aren't going to believe this, but i just rang Zero One to ask why 5 days have passed and my email of complaint hasn't been acknowledged. Listen carefully now, cos i didn't believe it at first either, and i quote: "The person who deals with our emails is off sick". After my short stunned silence, i asked if they only had one person in the company who could answer emails? The reply was "Yes, that person is the only one with access to the computer". I then asked when my email would be answered, to be told (curtly too) "When the person is well again".


What kind of tin-pot, 2 bit, 3 man show are Zero One running over there. If ONE staff member is off sick, then ALL customer emails are IGNORED until they come back to work!! That could be weeks or months depending on what's wrong with them.


Sorry for the rant, but what the hell kind of operation and customer service is that. Not once did i even get a hint of an apology. It was like i was an annoyance to them.


And to top it off, my boxmag is still not in stock. The rude girl said it'd be in stock in 10-14 days. From when? From today or when it went out of stock last week?


Sorry ZeroOne but you score a big fat zero!
