Thread: New Blaser UK Agents

  1. #1

    New Blaser UK Agents

    Has anyone had any dealings with Open Season since they took over the UK Blaser dealership?

    I am having serious problems with them getting a barrel which was ordered months ago and was alleged to be in stock when I ordered it.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    They are and always have been a pain IMO. Dad bought some Kahles binoculars that took 6 months to arrive, they then wouldnt post to us! We had to go and pick them up - he ended up with Ziess from uttings!


    I cant comment on owt else as that is the only dealing we have had with them

    Good luck
    Sam

    You could try contacting Mulliner Guns as he does a lot with Blasers and see what he says about getting you a barrel.

    The barrel arrived yesterday with the correct serial number, unfortunately, it was a 243 rather than 22/250. I have no ticket for a 243, and don't particularly want one. To say I am pissed off does not cover it.

    Sorry to hear that it isn't going so well Brian, I don't have much to suggest as I've never had dealings with the new Blaser people but might it be worthwhile mailing or even calling Germany and trying to get the head man on the phone? I think that is what I'd try under the circumstances. Having a Blaser myself I have some concerns about this new outfit that have taken over and I am concerned that Blaser may not be doing themselves any favours.

    Have Open Season offered any sollution to this? Assuming it's their, or the supplier's fault.

    They ordered a 22-250 and delivered a 243.....


    Pretty certain it is not Blaser's fault.


    I ordered a replacement barrel and bolt body for my Tac 2 a few months ago, it arrived no problem and on time as anticipated.

    But I used Alan Rhone.


    Connor at Mcleods has some R93 barrels in stock,


    I am glad I ordered the new barrel when I did before the change in importer....

    Blaser themselves are under some stick at the moment, im sure this is old hat to some-if not most of you, but they have given up their factory. everything is made on contract now buy other manufactures in differnt locations Then Blaser just put them all together in a big shed. I know Sauer make the barrels now-but not sure who makes what else. To me thats a recipe for disaster!

    A gunsmith friend of mine has a few with mag problems in within the last twelve months!
