I have a possible problem. 2 weeks ago I took my Colt LE6920 into a guy to get a cerakote job. Everything seemed to be legit, and the guy said it would take about a week to get done, and he would call me when it was. I paid for the work that day.

Anyhow, it's been a little over two weeks now. I've tried to call and email the guy to check on the status of my rifle, but I've never gotten through to him, and he’s never returned my calls/emails. Is it time to panic?

Das ist nicht gut...

Do you have the guy's info? Was there documentation of the exchange?

When you say you "took my AR into a guy", does he advertise this stuff? How did you find him?

If you brought it to his place of business or residence, I would attempt to contact him there. Did you get a receipt or bill of sale? If he does not answer when you attempt to contact him in person, both e-mail and call him and leave a voicemail stating you are reporting this to the police. I sincerely hope you have his information.

Edit...you answered some of my questions while I was typing..lol. Does he operate a business?

He does operate a business. I'm going to wait a few more days and see what happens before I release the name of it though.

Go find out like NOW. Don't wait around. At least go in there and get an idea what's up. The longer you wait the longer he could skip town or it be sold and gone

sent from the german sheperd next to me

2 weeks isn't bad if they're busy. Lack of communication irritates the hell outta me so I'd be stopping in.

Politely, check on it, in person.

When you pay for services, you have every right to check up on said services. If he refuses to answer the phone, a friendly stop by would be in order. At least he isn't out of state.

Not to mention the squeaky wheel gets the grease. Just stopping in could expedite the process. I know when I get busy the customers in my ear get taken care of to remove them from my ear. Either way you have to communicate. It doesnt take much to send an email these days. He Should atleast do that.

i concur...communication is vital in the modern age--if he is somehow that busy that he isn't returning calls or emails, he won't be for long...however, it could be something else causing the blackout: Family Issues, Health Concerns etc...

Drop by, have a chat and see whats what...and if he is lying to you or uncooperative, take your buisiness elsewhere

exactly what I was thinking.
to legally do the work, he'd have to be a FFL holder. I doubt your gun is so spectacular that a FFL holder would try to make off with it.
