Consumer Alert: Whiskey 3 Precision Systems (W3PS)

    UPDATE 2016 : A number of people claiming to be customers of Whiskey 3 Precision Systems (which may be going by the name Terminal Ballistics Group today) have complained to TFB regarding their orders not being fulfilled. We recommend caution when placing orders. 

    UPDATE: While the owner of W3PS has not made a formal statement, he has indicated that the disgruntled customers on multiple forums are the same person who he believes is a previous business associate trying to tarnish his company’s name. I have requested a formal statement. The company says they never saw my request for comment. 

    Folks have been complaining on a number of gun forums about Whiskey 3 Precision Systems (W3PS), makers of .375 Reaper rifle and ammunition components. They alledge that W3PS have not been shipping products that were paid for and are not issuing refunds.

    UPDATE: As some evidence has been provided that casts doubt on the legitimacy of those forum posts I quoted below, I am removing the the quotes for now. You can read them in full here and here.

    Almost four weeks ago, on September 18, I contacted Whiskey 3 Precision Systems asking them about this controversy. I immediately received an automated response saying they would be in touch within 48 hours. Four weeks later I have not heard from them.

    I don’t have their side of the story, nor can I verify that they are in fact not shipping orders, and if not why not.

    TFB has blogged about this company’s products in the past so I feel duty bound to alert my readers. It is quite possible that the company has resumed delivering orders on time, but before you purchase anything from them, get a firm guarantee about the shipping date (and if the product is not shipping, call your credit card company and arrange a charge back.)

    Remember you can always get your credit card vendor to initiate a chargeback.

    I am very familiar with libel law. Nothing in this blog post constitutes libel.
