    Firstly I was told they would reimburse me for shipping.. That shit didnt happen. $60 .. Not a small amount of change

    Second.. I get the gun back, it still has shit fitment and looks the same. I look at the gun and its dirty as shit. Someone should have wiped it down.

    And the last thing that pisses me off is.... THE GUN STILL DOESNT FUCKING FEED FOR SHIT

    I dont know if to take it back to the gunstore since they promised their gunsmith would look at it or call springfield back..

    oh ye.. I want my $60 back ESPECIALLY since they didnt do shit!

    Did you follow their request for shipping reimbursment? They dont just magically know how much you paid and send you money. You have to submit the paperwork.

    I would call and politely complain. I had top notch service from SA. My XD went in rusted, and came back with a new finish all over, new sights, AND they polished a few areas and it slides really smoothly. And I shipped it in newspaper and they sent it back in a handgun case.
    At least let them know you are not happy and they didnt get your gun fixed. Dont go ballistic on them right away, but at least give them a chance to make it right.

    I hear ya.. Kinda. I feel they didnt get it right from the factory and then i sent it in. Now its still the same. If I didnt have tons of other guns and this was my only one I wouldnt be happy about it.

    I suppose ill call and see what they show on their system.

    did you leave a note with the gun saying what needed to be done when you sent it in? I did for mine and the tech did the things which I asked, including testing if it shot low and including including the test target when the gun was sent back. they also refinished it after i asked them to as well (to get rid of the idiot mark i put on it within a week of owning it :( )

    I did. I said please address the following issues

    Failure to feed
    failure to extract
    failure to strip the last round from the magazine
    Fitment of the rear slide where it meets the body

    The paperwork says they changed the extracted and lapped the barrel. It doesnt look or feel like it.
