I spoke with both the guy at "another vendor" who didn't want my business, and Tombstone grips. I know the "another vendor" didn't want it because he told me so
OK, so he doesn't need my $30.00 I wish him well dealing with prospective new customers in this economy.
Then I had a quick conversation by e-mail with Tombstone! What a difference.
I recieved a detailed, hand written, not automated, reply that was pleasant, informative & encouraging. The writer read my questions, addressed the issuers in detail & responded accurately, informatively & promptly. Guess who got the order?
Now all I have to do is wait for the drawings to get there, the grips to be made & mailed back to me so I can do the final fitting.
