Well my order made it in only 14 days !!! Was excited to get it untill I opened the box!!
I had ordered a Knight Range rod as well so the box was a longer box and the bottom half of the box had bubble wrap but the top half didnt so as you can guess it was packed wrong and several of my packs of jags and brushes were torn and just floating around in the box!!!

But I know for sure that if I needed the product in a few days I would make 100% sure that the person taking the order would have known that before I hung up the phone??

I definitely would have told her how fast I needed the product. I would not have waited for "Murphy's Law". I would have been pro-active. And for a person in Customer Service I would assume you fully understand being pro-active??

I am just a dumb WV HillBilly but I would have known that??

As far as the gunsmith is concerned. I would assume his job is to repair firearms that are returned?? I am not sure how he would know about current scope mounting techniques? Actually it is a bit refreshing that the gunsmith did not lie to you and tell you what you wanted to hear.

Yes he was in error, he should have found out what your question was before he returned your call. Wait a minute. He returned your call?? WOW that is a first for most companies this day and age??

I am not trying to defend Knight. I do like Knight rifles. And I worked for Tony Knight at one point in my life. But I have absolutely nothing to do with their current status.

However I do think you are being a bit too critical on Knight here. Part of this is on you for waiting until the last minute. And not specifying your immediate need. And part of the blame is on Knight for being new at what they are doing. And being a Customer Service expert you should well know that. Tom.
Nicely said! My point exactly.

You have also got to remember the old saying (POOR PLANNING ON YOUR PART DOES NOT MEAN IT"S A EMERGENCY FOR OTHERS).
Well put. Its not knights inconvenience, its this guy who orders a few days before he leaves on a hunt. Pre-plan your hunt and this wouldn't of happened.

I really dont see how 14 days is acceptable in todays world of e commerce.

I see we are getting the old we are so busy, we cant keep up with our orders because everyone wants our product and you should too, sales tactics from the board shills, in another thread. I have workes sales, i know how it works. Can you say: act now only the first 100 callers...nevermind!!!! If they are that busy, what is the holdup. they should not have a problem paying their suppliers to keep the items on the shelve or to hire employees to ship the merchandise, or pay the ones they have to have already have started a weekend shift. Poor bussines, all the way around!!

They are not so busy they can not man the phones for orders.

wtf?!!! Knight calls me, i answer and they hung up! I called the # back and it rings and rings and then goes to an answering machine. Good luck getting anything fixed at knight! Hell ive had better CS for a cheap trailcam that had an issue.
