Jury still out on PSA(SC)

Working on my first order with PSA. I ordered
a stripped lower. Everything went through
online, had FFL fax license. I have been trying
to contact via email and phone about a week
but no luck. I did have one response via email
but they didn't answer my question. I don't
know if they received my FFL, much less
the status. But they have charged my card.

Anybody know what's up with this company?
I know they do a lot of retail business so
not sure why I am having difficulty with this. Any
input would be appreciated.

I’ve never done business with them, but see complaints on here occasionally. Most people seem to complain about delivery, communications and general customer service. If I remember most people usually end up getting their stuff and seem happy with the actual product, but again just going from memory. I attached a link to the local Better Business Bureau and their experience with them.

Thanks for the link. It's all in line with your
comments from the board. Interesting that
of the 59 complaints, 57 have been within
the past year. They also list products and
service as separates in the same category so
we can only assume it must be customer
service complaints as like you I have heard
nothing but good about their products. They
seem like a retailer based on their site and
contact info so I felt they had the customer
service/business end down pat. Now it appears
like they run a Jim Bob type operation with an
excellent product but no skills in marketing
and customer service. I hope I'm wrong
or this will be my last order, at least for anything
requiring an FFL.

Don't worry too much I've bought a ton of stuff from them they always seem to come through.
Sometimes quite slow though.

I have only had 1 experience with psa and it was less than a month ago, it was a good experience. I ordered 1,000 rds of blazer 9mm. the site said it would take 1-2 weeks just to ship the box, but i recieved the package 5 days after placing my order. I hope your situation turns for the better.

If you search TFL, in the semiauto and this forum, you will find a lot of PSA feedback as well as more on the company itself.

The Skinny on PSA.......they have very good products at pretty good prices, they are slow to answer emails, and phone calls, but do come through in the end. There brick and mortar stores usually have items in stock that are listed as out of stock on there website.

The skinny on the BBB anyone who pays there membership dues can have a A rating 60 Minutes did a story on them a couple years ago they are a joke and there ratings don't mean **** because company's can pay to have there A+ rating restored they are not unbiased in the least bit.
